Very nice couple who run the BB. Looking back it is quite obvious that you need to ring the bell to let them know you have arrived - we missed this and took us a while to figure it out. :-/ We were given the option between 2 rooms when we got there. Like most Rural houses all the rooms... More

El Meson is situated just off the main road from Haro in the small town of Briones. It's a great location to base yourself when planning on visiting the local area. Haro is 10 mins drive away and has lots of tapas bars and restaurants. The hotel has ample private parking, which is a good thing as you need a... More

Interesting classical Spanish property. Good size rooms. "Antique" interiors. Friendly owners. Free parking on site. Good home made breakfast. On edge of Briones within walking distance of town centre.However, the property is located opposite the railway line so take earplugs or ask for a room at the back. So, not completely "Rural"!

I can't express into words how this place fulfilled my Spanish country side dreams. This place will take you back in time... It is the most nostalgic feeling I got on my trip throughout Spain. Quiet, rustic, warm, inviting, and the host was so friendly and cute. She and her family have a small family run restaurant down the street.... More

El Meson is centrally located in the wine district of Rioja within short driving distances to bodegas and other charming villages. It is a quaint little bed and breakfast just on the outskirts and in walking distance from the charming little village of Briones that sits above it with wonderful views. Wonderful walking trails surround it. The rooms are a... More

In addition to the things to do in Briones itself (Dinastía Vivanco wine museum and bodega, Bodega Miguel Merino) it served as an excellent location for our group since it it wonderfully centrally located in La Rioja. Every day we could reach our bodegas of the day as well as fine restaurants in 15 or 20 minutes at most. The... More

To stay here you really need a car. The hotel is quite good, the rooms are clean and a good size, but for a woman there are one or two things lacking, no mirror in the bedroom, not enough wardrobe space. A car is a must as the nearest restaurant is a fair walk uphill. Breakfast could have been better,... More

If you're doing car tourism of the La Rioja area, and are looking for a basic place to stay, this is perfect. This is a converted wine warehouse that has really charming, if small, rooms, and some public areas for guests as well. The rooms have antique-looking furniture. It's at the bottom of a sleepy wine village, and the Dynastia... More
