this is a lovely small hotel where the hosts are charming and the food was lovely. we only stayed one night as our room was directly over the village square where the fiesta went on until 4 am, we would have stayed longer but needed sleep. It makes a great spot for exploring the rioja region.

Having stayed at the hotel before we went back because of the food, rooms and its location (it was the nearest hotel to the Rioja Alavesa Wine Festival 2013). Samaniego is a tiny village and doesn't have any shops and the only restaurant is the one in the hotel. So we were a little suprised (and very disappointed) when we... More

The service here was very friendly and accommodating. We got all our questions answered, recommendations, maps, directions, everything well handled. Best of all we had 3 great meals there - a 3 course dinner, tasty continental breakfast, and by special request, the chef made us a paella for breakfast! The best we've had on our 2-week trip through Spain. All... More

We stayed nights at Palacio de Samaniego in low season and the owner and chef, John, was able to give us very special attention. The building is located in the small Village of Samaniego which was not on any of the 3 maps we had with us but it was worth the search. The room was very clean and of... More

We stayed here for two days in autumn on a trip around the Rioja wine area.Well placed,spotlessley clean and great attention to detail. Very welcoming and helpful to guests BUT menu was very limited and very overpriced for what was presented! The nearest suitable restaurants were in le Guardia which was enchanting and less expensive.

This small hotel has only 10 rooms, housed in a renovated palacio in the wine-making village of Samaniego (7 minutes by car from the hilltop, medieval, bodega rich town of Laguardia) in the Rioja Alavesa. The couple who run the place are a class act, offering exceptional cooking and really personal service. The wine cellar is well stocked with local... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel on a hiking trip in Spain. Although there is nothing else in the town of Samaniego, it is not far from the town of Laguardia, in the Rioja district of the Basque country. This restored baroque manor house was beautiful, with high ceilings and large windows. The restaurant was terrific, although the menu was... More

This was our fourth visit to this lovely hotel. We travel to the Rioja region most years to visit the Bodegas and to buy the wonderful wine to stock up our little cellar at home. We always stay at the Palacio which we came across by chance on our first visit to the area. From the outset we were impressed... More
