Hotel Echaurren might not be situated on the main tourist tracks ... but that is just another of the attraction to this hotel. Wonderful quiet village among the hills ( with great walking hikes ) and close to Rioja wine district. Don’t eat lunch and dinner anywhere else– as the hotel has all the options you need and the quality... More

What a wonderful hotel! Ezcaray is out of the way and there is no way that you would accidentally stumble upon it. We went because we had seen it on Rick Stein's Spain and cancelled our booking at Marques De Riscal. The welcome and service that we received were both welcome after a longish drive from Madrid and the room... More

We were confused with this hotel as it felt to us to be more a restaurant with rooms. The rooms were very modern and clean but the standard double rooms are very small and have no baths.The bar area is the only internal seating area and as such the hotel felt very cramped. We were particularly dissatisfied with the very... More

The hotel itself was modern, clean and quiet. Our room was on the second floor, with a view of the beautiful church across the street. As far as we could tell, church bells chimed from 8 am to midnight, then silenced for the night. There were Windows on two side, with cushions to sit and admire the view. There were... More

Escaray is a beautiful village of Rioja, far from the capital Logroño but near to one of the most charismatic villages which is Haro. It is mountain village close to the ski resort Valdezcaray. It is a Relais and Chateaux family hotel with luxuries and comfortable rooms. You can choose between three different restaurants to eat: one Michelin awarded El... More

We visited this hotel as we reserved in both restaurants. We were offered a beautiful room, very modern and comfortable. The weather was not great on our visit so during the evenings we could sit in the bar and they had games to play. A very good visit. We will be back

We had a very pleasant stay, standard room is comfortable with a view on the church, room is a bit small but well organized, modern as the hotel has recently been renovated, heaters were set to maximum as cold weather was announced, also...

Great hotel as you drive into most beautiful village. Big rooms, lovely views opposite a church and lovely walks along the river. The two town squares are very prey and clean. It felt more like a French or Swiss Alps village. I'll stay longer next trip as only had 1 night. Good amenities and very quiet.

Ezcaray is a great little town in the Rioja Region and staying at Echaurren was a great choice. The hotel offers outstanding food and accommodations. We were there with our kids and took 2 rooms. We got upgraded to a beautiful suite. Both rooms were extremely well appointed with modern furniture, locally made throws, and complimentary mini bar. We also... More

We stayed two nights at hotel echaurren. Nice room with view of the church. The hotel has recently been redecorated and is beautiful. Great breakfast. The town is lovely. There are a lot of things to do around, but just nature and a walk around town is already relaxing. We bought some nice wool scarves and pillow at the local... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our parents inherited a small hotel - El Echaurren. They transformed it, converting it into their home and a home for all who visited. Our mother Marisa refined the traditional culinary meals of Granny Julia and stamped her own character and elegance on the dishes. Her efforts were recognised when she won Spain's National Gastronomic Award in 1987.And now we, Marisa's children - the fifth generation of the family, are dedicated to maintaining the essence of the Echaurren while at the same time invest in its future. As such, we've converted our old hostel into a modern, comfortable hotel where nothing is lacking. Our aim has been to give everything a contemporary twist but without losing the sense of warmth. You'll notice a strong Nordic influence in the interior design. We've continued the traditional cooking of our mother which you can enjoy in the Echaurren Traditional restaurant. In 2002 we opened El Portal de Echaurren where Francis lets his creative juices flow freely. It specialises in avant-garde dishes - very personal and primarily sourced from the local area. Two years after its launch El Portal de Echaurren became the first-ever restaurant in La Rioja to gain a Michelin star. It has maintained this distinction ever since. In 2012 Francis won Spain's National Gastronomic Award, a quarter of a century after his mother. ... more   less
