The location and this hotel are an odd combination. The town/village itself is small but beautiful. Literally nothing else was open at the time (late September) and I didn't even see anything like another restaurant or bar which could have been open.
However, this hotel is beautiful. Visually stunning and a great experience. Super friendly and helpful front office staff and excellent rooms. A nice place to base yourself to your the region.
We ate in the restaurant one night which was quite good. The wine list was excellent and the service was first class.
We procured some local produce throughout one day and adjourned to the roof top terrace for dinner on our own the other night. Stunning view and complete and utter isolation and quite overlooking the surrounding village, mountains and vines

Situated in Villabuena de Álava in the Rioja Alavesa, Viura is perfect as a base for discovering La Rioja.
