Hotel Viura gets high marks for accommodation and flexibility. It is strategically well located among the Rioja wineries and reception were very helpful with meeting our needs. We were a party a party of 5 travellng to the wineries and towns in this area. It was a relaxing atmosphere where we could return each afternoon and enjoy bottles of wine... More

The hotel is really nice. Modern and elegant. The location is perfect to discover la Rioja by car, foot or cycling. Room are spacious. You should ask for a view on the village though. Breakfast are to die for. Staff is nice and helpful but remember it is boutique hotel so sometimes you feel alone when you are looking for... More

Stayed one night. Room with terrace. Funky, non traditional hotel. Either you like the ambiance or you don't. If you like traditional elegance this ain't your place. If you want to experience something unique, a little different, you'll probably like Room was large, clean, concise and kept the hotel theme. Solid rooms overall Didn't go to onsite vinoteca or restaurant... More

Lovely warm friendly hotel with lots of modern design. Rooms are very large but comfortable. We stayed in 304 which has a great balcony. Good breakfast. Service warm and friendly. Fortunately the church next door stops ringing the bells at night but at 08.00 they start and you will hear them.

Tucked away on the small town of Villabuena you will find the hotel after finding your way through the narrow two way street. The modern structure of the hotel contrast deeply with the rustic houses that surround it. Once inside you will find the eclectic decor and open spaces quite surprising. It is fairly dark colors which contrast the mountain... More

Stayed at the hotel for two nights, great service! Had a massage also it was alright but the rooms are great and spacious and everyone is helpful. One point is that their English wasn't that good, but it wasnt an issue for me and my friends cause there were spanish speakers with us

By the photos you'd expect a fairly grand hotel (we had stayed at the Marques de Riscal last year) Unfortunately you arrive in a small town and tucked away, not in a good position, is the hotel. It looked tired and unkept. Inside is not much better, it's built into the side of a rock face, it's dark and gloomy.... More

The exterior architecture of this hotel was very interesting, but the interior and service, as well as the town itself did not live up to expectations. A friend and I came here immediately after staying at the Marques de Riscal, and so part of the problem may have been that it was a bit of a letdown after enjoying that... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
