Travelers' Choice
Composed of whimsically superimposed cubes that seem to surge forcefully from the centre of the earth; punctuated by French windows that flood the rooms with views of the relaxing scenery. Situated in Villabuena de Álava in the Rioja Alavesa, Viura is perfect as a base for discovering La Rioja. Only 20 minutes away from Logroño and from Haro and 10 minutes from such emblematic wine cellars as Ysios and Marqués de Riscal. In addition to its magnificent restaurant, the bar, a fine old wine cellar and a gymnasium, Viura has wonderful terraces on the top floor with panoramic views of the San Andrés Church, built between 1538 and 1728, and of all the mountains of the Sierra de Cantabria. All hotel guests have at their disposal, without any charge, wireless internet connection, soft drinks from the mini-bar, gym access, bicycles and parking. The hotel also offers dvd players and a wide range of movies on DVD, for free.

“Design” itself is not good enough to be a good hotel and this hotel unfortunately is not an exception. There is absolutely nothing special about this hotel apart from its architecture and interior design elements. To begin with the service, I understand that May is not the high season some cost measures are taken but such measures jeopardize the service quality significantly. The same four- five employees keep wondering around, tryng to be everything for everyone- with all the good intentions but it really doesn't work. At times, you feel there are no employees in the hotel but only guests. And therefore you either start looking for them here and there or you need to help yourself. On the food & beverage side: The breakfast is quite weak, other meal menu options are limited and the taste is hardly average (which is a real disappointment in that region of Spain); of course, if you can order your food. Accommodation experience is nowhere close to a real 4-star hotel, the rooms lack many amenities, mini bars are not re-filled, AC works when it feels like working. As for the location, there’s nothing to see in walking distance, one tiny shop (like a market), if you can find it open. The village is so silent, so isolated, without absolutely anyone on the streets. May be May not was the best time to be there. Our stay was not a 4-star experience at all and apart from that, was rather disappointing.

From start to finish this hotel is astonishingly incredible. Staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The common areas such as the bar and lounge are inviting. Barman /server in the evening was exceptional with excellent recommendations. Rooms are large and well-appointed. Rooftop terrace is relaxing and offers great sunsets. The location is PERFECT - for the amazing Laguardia medieval town, Elciego and other winery locations. Minor quibbles are that the WiFi in our room was spotty. The air conditioning wasn't working great. We had a room at the back of the hotel and it opened on to an elevated road which during harvest season means tractors going back and forth beyond dawn. HOWEVER these do nothing to take away from our experience. The fact that the hotel staff were still able to offer a luxury experience during COVID-19 is testament to what a wonderful hotel Viura is. We will be back again and again and again. Don't consider anywhere else.

What an amazing hotel ! Even in this traditional, historical village, this piece of modern architecture is very well integrated in the center of the village, next to the church. The materials of concrete and wood from the Bask country together are wonderful. The hotel has large surprising wonderful rooms, bath and separate shower and toilet, a very charming lobby with a lot of exiting art. Lovely breakfast (even in Corona times), relaxing, nice view from the top terrace and fitness facilities. Very quiet at night. Great staff !! Unfortunately the restaurant was not open yet, probably because of corona. We would love to go back. Good price/quality

Architecturally interesting hotel. Really modern - some design problems - include annoying light controls that work only from bed. Shower only - no tub. Room has shower gel, shampoo, conditioners, body lotions, large bathroom counters, safe, free wifi, mini-frig. Since bathroom counter in room - cannot use lights at night without person in bed not seeing - only purple diffuser blocks. No blackout curtains. Some in our group noted the rooms have only tiny windows.

We were here in June and loved it so much that we decided to return. An ultra modern hotel and really quirky. A bit of a Fawlty Towers in it too. The staff are very pleasant, but I would say, need a little more knowledge of the English language. Rafael was the image of Basil Fawlty. Breakfasts are amazing, and the Bistro good value. Fantastic in summer as it is open all the time, but in winter does not open until 19:00. However complimentary drinks and snacks are available. We just love this hotel even though it’s quirkiness including the bedroom lighting which we could not get our heads around.

Ultra modern design hotel juxtaposed with a very traditional village. Looked after very well, food in both the Bistro and restaurant was very good. The staff were lovely, only slight complaint is that there were not always enough of them, particularly late afternoon in the bar and service could be slow. Unfortunately the hotel Vinoteca was shut, which was a shame for us. I was travelling with my elderly parents and staff were very accommodating and thoughtful. Great stay and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend

Found this hotel on the I escape website as we find they have quirky hotels which suit what we are looking for although we do book direct. We had spent 3 nights touring the rioja region and this proved to be a great stop . The village itself has nowhere to really eat or drink but the hotel more than makes up for it with a fabulous restaurant (in my opinion a better meal than Marques de riscal) and a lovely little wine bar . Unfortunately we couldn't make use of the outside space as it rained for most of the time we were there but a good excuse to return . The rooms are huge and i believe all very different but the highlight is the food both at dinner and breakfast.

The bold design of this contemporary hotel is in stark contrast to the rustic and quiet village around it, but the two compliment each other beautifully. From the main town square you can catch glimpses of the composition of cubic shapes that form the hotel rooms, while the scenic view from the hotel's rooftop gives you a great panorama of the village. The overall decor has a bit of an industrial character, with raw steel, concrete and black paint, including the rooms, which I don't mind personally. I could have done without the colored LED lights though which give it a dated "nightclub" kind of vibe. I had a bit of a problem with my first room where there was a strong cigarette smell, despite them assuring us that the entire hotel is smoke-free. But they quickly resolved that with a new room; service was good, despite them being a bit short-handed maybe--there was usually only one person at the desk at all times. The location was convenient to the wineries we visited: Ysios, Campo Viejo, and Marques de Riscal. As well as a short drive 20-min from the nearest town Logrono. We didn't have dinner at the hotel, but did enjoy breakfast in the restaurant below, which had a great spread of good quality items--fresh squeezed OJ, homemade jams, etc. Would recommend to anyone who wants something different from the typical rustic B&B in the countryside.

What a gem! This hotel is superb, amazing service with wonderful rooms. The food is tasty and the staff are brilliant. We stayed here on a trip from The UK to Alicante. The main reason was to visit Luis Canas, this has to be the best Rioja I’ve ever tasted. This is one of the hotels that is understated and classy. Well worth a visit!
