I stayed here for 2 nights in September '12 and would recommend the hotel if you are visiting the beautiful Rioja region.
Great design and very comfortable room (we took a suite with a terrace). The communal roof terrace is a cool place to hang out day or night. However, the food isn't great and the breakfast is a bit ordinary. They somehow haven't managed to create a warm ambiance in the restaurant.
Also, be aware that there is nothing else to do in the village, so plan for a relaxing afternoon on the roof! The communcal pool was closed when we visiting. All in all, worth a short stay!
- 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
