As I was planning some day trips during our upcoming San Sebastián, I discovered photographs of the Hotel Marques de Riscal. My interest was piqued. If you want to see and experience the Frank Gehry architecture you must either dine at the restaurant or stay as a guest. (You can see the exterior of the building during the winery tour,...

On our road trip for our honeymoon through spain, this hotel and area was our 'luxury' stop. It is amazing, words really cannot describe how amazing our stay was. We stayed for two nights, upon arrival the staff were very helpful and friendly. Throughout our stay they made sure we had everything we needed from umbrella's for the rain to...

If visiting Rioja or around, this property is probably the place to be. Most of all, I found it very quiet. Rooms have plenty of daylight, comfortable large beds, wifi works perfectly. Staff is very attentive, smiling and professional. The hotel has the Marques de Riscal winery right next, hotel guests can visit and it´s a very recommendable one. Fine...

If you had enough sea, this rural region may attract your attention. Hotel built by Frank Gehry (his visit card is Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao) in vineyards of Rioja. Absolute stunning building! Good spa (with French vinery cosmetics Caudalie) excellent food and of course Rioja wine. Taste it. Enjoy it.

We stayed at this property for 5 days in October. It is a perfect base to explore the Rioja region by car. The hotel is located within the Riscal winery and as you can see in the photos, has a very cool design. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A short 10 minute walk gets you into a very...

My fiance and I stayed her in September on an SPG award stay. We were upgraded to a fairly large room with a very spacious bathroom. You probably already know what this hotel is all about, but it basically looks like someone took the Guggenheim in Bilbao (same architect, Frank Gehry), painted it many colors, and dropped it in the...

From the moment we arrived we were looked after with a smile. The room, restaurant, wine bar and spa were all excellent as was the tour of the winery, all surrounded by spectacular autumn colours. My only minor complaint is that there was no opening window in the room. We look forward to staying here again.

From the moment I checked in to check out, the service was impeccable. The hotel is beautiful and Gehry's creation does wonder for one's eyes. Location was great. Near La Guardia (a must see) which is about 15 minutes by car and Haro which is about 25 minutes by car. Plenty to do and see. The hotel's restaurant was awesome...

We loved staying at the Marques de Riscal during our travels in Rioja. The design of the hotel is a work of art during both day and night (when it is lit up).

This hotel is the destination! Amazing architecture, excellent service and great gastronomy. I would highly suggest to visit this beautiful hotel during the harvest season (sept/oct). A must for any wine lover. A perfect two nights stay - don't miss out to book a treatment at the Spa.
