We booked the gastrotour package including the wine tasting menu in Viura. The hotel is located quite hidden in the small village Villabuena. The architecture is super modern. Lots of concrete combined with accessories that bring more warmth and cosiness into the interior. The superior room we had was very spacious with a full window front. However bathroom and toilet is just seperated by a curtain - something I still find weird. The wine tasting dinner in the restaurant was OK but for the given price I would have expected much more. We also had the feeling that dinner was kind of pushed through. They only served wine from winerys of the village - which in general is OK - but it would have been nice to exeprience some contrasts too by tasting wines from other areas of La Rioja. Breakfast was fine and of good quality. Even the breakfast area was nice and warm enough for us. As we were there to explore La Rioja we spent only the nights in the hotel. Otherwise it could become a bit boring.

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!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a larger room!

Definitely the oddest building I've stayed in - from the outside. Inside, our room was well decorated, nice and sizeable and very comfortable. Lots of balcony space for sunbathing too. No pool, but we used the municipal one next door which was fine. The town is very quiet - not much going on - but very picturesque. Dinner was enjoyable - very friendly staff.
Communal areas - particularly the open space and terrace on the roof - were great.

Great design to look at, but function suffers a bit! Bathrooms small and variable (according to other couples in our group). Good for young (or young at heart)couples. Enjoyed the bar and restaurant immensely but found the brekfast environment to be cold and wierd - might be a cultural thing!

I struggle to think of a hotel I've enjoyed staying at so much. One of the few design hotels where the reality really lives up to the photos on the website. This is uncompromising modern design, but with warmth and personal touches that make it very special. We had 2 nights there and ate there both nights. The food is good, perhaps not up to the ambitions of whoever writes the menu and sets the prices, but enjoyable all the same, and overall it was a joy to while away a couple of evenings there, on the roof terrace overlooking the town and in the bar with the friendly staff chatting away. Couldn't recommend the place more.
