The cuisine was of a very high standard, the building itself is a beautiful old palace, the staff were very attentive, pleasant and helpful. The bedroom was comfortable but certainly not luxurious. The meals were lovely but, from a brit's viewpoint, there were only very small amounts of vegetables!
The Hotel and location in the middle of the Rioja Alavesa is outstanding as is the restaurant featuring regional cuisine. Using the Palacio as our base we were able to visit nearby historic sites and the many wineries. The staff was professional and helpful in every way. We had a wonderful 3 day stay.
Excellent hotel with friendly staff
Noise from the next door room. Better sound proof .
An efficient and helpful reception. The room was comfortable and clean, with a good outlook. A good buffet breakfast. In a bar with only one other customer, who seemed to be a friend of the barman, being totally ignored when we entered and tried to order - the long conversation with the barman's friend being obviously of greater importance. My wife was given the smallest measure of wine I have ever seen poured in Spain. Later, a Spanish couple queried the smallnes of the wine measure, and were told that it was the Internationally agreed measure! We asked at reception to see the restaurant menu, but when we wanted to dine were told the restaurant was closed and we would have to eat in the bar cafe. The food was cold and unpalatable, and overpriced.
Ideally situated in the Rioja region and also handy for the short trip to Bilbao to catch the lunchtime ferry home.
Free parking (if you don't use their underground garage). Swimming pool & less than a 10 minute walk to the beautiful old town
this is our second visit to this hotel, we found as previously clean and comfortable accomodation. the location was fantastic, good access to the town and local area my only disapointment was that the main restaurant was not available on sunday evenings, the alternative was food offered in the bar area, which was a limited menu.
Really nice hotel - good service, friendly staff and all the facilities you need - the bar was open late and breakfast good. Also the restaurant upstairs is pretty good and good value. The only downside is that the hotel is situated a bit away from the town - about a 15 minute walk but it is seriously uphill on the way there. But we drove up the hill and could park easily and for free.
The food was excellent - chef very gifted. everything was great - loved our stay in Laguardia so much we extended by 2 extra days
Free use of the internet. Personel taste, but the decor of the room is of an individual taste and would not be ours.
Excellent location to tour La Rioja region in Spain. Reception staff extremely helpful in arranging access to local wineries closed due to a national strike.
Staff were very friendly. Childrens inside play area. WiFi in hotel did not go out to pool area.
everything.the staff was excellent.so nice and trying to help in every single detail. So profesional. nothing.absoLutely perfect in any case.
Being an Architect what brought me to this hotel was obviously the design by Frank Ghery.On arrival I was taken aback by the setting and a scenery.Rooms are beautiful and very comfortable.
unique hotel with fantastic facilites and service but at a price few can afford very limited common area around the hotel. all usable space is perhaps unsprisingly vineyards.
I liked the expansive grounds and the view of the vineyards from our bedroom window. I thought the maintenance on the building wasn't great, the bathroom was small, telephone didn't work, the shower controls were difficult and stuck on boiling hot, and the bath was tiny - just as well I am not obese
The location and design of the buildings are excellent, the rooms extremely comfortable and the staff friendly and attentive. The spa is very good, as are the staff who run it, and the food is of very high quality. The breakfasts were particularly good as was the staff who looked after them The gourmet restaurant food is first class, but there could have been an a la carte choice rather than two long tasting menus. Service in the bistro was occasionally slow. On nights when the gourmet restaurant is closed, one needs to know that one may need to book the bistro early. We were fortunately able to eat the same food in the bar
Beautiful design , excellent food and good service in a very pleasant and quiet setting . Ideal for a few days of relaxing ;
Beautiful big rooms and amazing scenery. The restaurant tasting menu was unbelievable! The decor and ambiance in restaurant was lacking. Though the food made up for everything!! A little too pricey too for the hotel being kind of empty.
Everything! It should be a little bit cheaper
The location and hotel itself. The breakfast staff were exceptional. The reception staff were poor and ill-informed. My room had a wine stained rug and the glasses were not neither removed nor cleaned every day.
Everything - the rooms are great, the hotel is beutiful
Fascinating design/architecture. Beautiful interior and exterior lighting. Comfort. Interesting location. Friendly, helpful staff. Some noise in evening from terrace under our room window. Limited choice of bar food, if you didn't want restaurant meal.
Good hotel staff and very good breakfast. Unluckily,stayed in room101 where noisy hotel generators were audible all night making an uncomfortable and sleepless night.Other rooms are presumably much better and don,t have this problem.
Having dinner on the rooftop terrace and the fact that the hotel staff was willing to make it happen. The day time staff (male employee from Belgium) was extremely helpful and accommodating. Definitely a hotel to consider if traveling to the Rioja region.
Comfortable, very modern hotel with helpful staff. If staying more than 2 nights then the evening food options in the hotel become limited.
Gorgeous setting and location Very nice rooms (best hotel hairdryer!) One of the reception staff members seemed a little reluctant to help but other than this I couldnt fault our stay here.
The design of the hotel building was special. The room and breakfast were very good. The staff were helpful. On the night we stayed they were not serving dinner. Apart from the quality room and the view the facilities were limited.
Excellent hotel,very nice staff..would stay there again!!!!
This is a fantastic hotel and a great value. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.
This hotel opened in February 2010. It is in a vineyard. The decor is modern and tastefully done and the staff was pleasant. The rooms overlooked the vineyard. We were there when they were bringing in the grapes in truck loads. We were offered a free tour of the 'bodega' which ended with a tasting of two of their red wines. The room was small but not a problem. The bathroom was great- the view of the vineyard spectacular. The bathroom was modern and up-scale. The shower was fabulous. It had 4-jet streams at mid-height and an overhead shower. The location is good - a 5 minute drive to Laguardia and to many wineries. Hotel has free parking on-site. Dinner at the hotel was of good value - bottle of their own wine is included. the refrigerator in the room did not work
Staff were very helpful. Rooms were a good size and furnished very nicely.
Ambience of the hotel was excellent. Each room had a unique name. Security light in the room that disturbs sleep. Temperature in room was too hot.
This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! Loved it! Our double room had a beautiful four poster bed, and although not the biggest room I have ever stayed in, it was full of boutique hotel charm and very comfortable. Andrea, the hotel's very friendly receptionist, couldn't do enough for us, helping us book wine tours and local restaurants. We did not eat in the hotel so can't comment on quality of dinner. Overall we had a really memorable stay at the Hospederia De Los Parajes and would not hesitate to recommend it!
The hotel owners / staff (in many cases they are the same) were very helpful in setting up tours for me. Even with some language barrier for the staff I was made to feel very welcome and they accomodated me in all my needs. The food was very good with a very good selection of wines.
staff very pleasant, location calm and beautiful, food great
Wonderful host. Excellent restaurant. Very nice ambiance. The hotel is quite echo-y. This makes the rooms a bit noisy at night.
Decor of the hotel is outstanding and so is the location. Great base for exploring the Rioja region. Excellent restaurant, both the breakfast and evening meals were great. Highly recommended!
Visited wine museum and two bodegas Signage to get to hotel is misleading as it is above road with no clear access
Perfect location in a fantastic setting. A fascinating building both inside and out you can take in the surrounding views from the top of the tower. Hotel is spotlessly clean and the hotels owner really nice.
We liked the atmosphere and the charm of this centuries-old mansion. They have also pretty good restaurant.
enjoyed the position and uniqueness of hotel. Rooms comfortable and well equipped. Reception staff very welcoming and helpful The restaurant which was one of the reasons for staying in the hotel was closed for the night!!!
We enjoyed the Posada Mayor De Migueloa so much the first night, that we stayed for a second. Overall friendly staff. But the Matriarch of the family and her son were extremely helpful throughout our entire stay. Wine Tour
The hotel was situated in the heart of a charming medieval village.The decoration of the rooms was really beautiful. The staff were so friendly and helpful in organising our vineyard visits and onward journeys.
Hotel has great character and flavor of the area. Staff was very helpful when booking.com screwed up during reservation process. Don't be fooled that the bodega here is anything really worth seeing. It's very tiny and owner refused to even show it to us when we arrived (even though hotel guide said there would be tour at the time we were there). Breakfast is expensive and there's nothing to it.
great location. nice people.
This is definitely the best hotel I ever stayed in. I arrived just after the local holidays had ended and I was the only client in the whole hotel. The hostess (unfortunately I forgot to ask what is her name) was very charming, kind and helpful. Moreover, coffee for breakfast was real espresso, which is something I used to consider impossible in hotels.
Comfort-location and cleanliness of the rooms
Very nice hotel, everithing was good (rooms, cleanliness, location, breakfast, etc.)
Hotel staff are very nice and helpful, ake you feel home away from home.
The staff were extremely pleasant and the hotel was basic but comfortable.Elciego is a very ancient stone village with the production of wine its sole purpose. If you love Riocha wine and want to do a lot of wine tasting then this is the place to come. A little expensive but it seems all accommodation in the Riocha region is expensive
Excellent location, clean and functional rooms, good value for money and excellent, though not cheap, restaurant No attached parking
Well situated in the La Rioja region. Very good value for the money. They do not really have an easy access to wifi.
Very friendly and helpful staff, perfect location, at the central square. Only one thing: suprisingly, it was hard to find a place to eat ( we arrived almost at 9 pm), may be it was due to the local festitivites. Otherwise, perfect.
The magnificant view. No elevator - though this is going to be installed.
The views from the bedrooms was excellent, the food is very good and the hotel was very near the city gates. There was no bar open, or a sitting area.there was also a lot of steps up to the reception area dining room and bedrooms, but no lift.
Excellent hotel in a prime location, clean rooms, good service, excellent restaurant and friendly staff.
Great location. Balcony overlooking the old town walls a plus. Even numbered rooms have a better view, looking out over the vineyards. Small room. Needed paint, and updating. Hotel could put more effort into decor. The Balocony had sad little planters with fake plants in them.
Very well situated with easy access to the town. We had a room with terrace and fabulous views. One star rating on site is way below reality
Proximity to old town, good Spanish food, big selection of wines, exellent views of surrounding vineyards from room balcony No option for a continental breakfast
The water for a shower in the morning was tepid!
simply breathtaking view, friendly staff , beautiful walled town,sunshine!
The hotel was charming, with a big, BIG balcony that overlooked a wonderful vista of vineyards, other towns, and mountains. It was located within steps of the entrance to the enchanting walled city of LaGuardia. The room was not big, but big enough, with a decent sized bathroom. Having no lift was a bit of a pain, so we opted to take up our smaller luggage with only what we needed for a day or two. There was no front desk clerk for much of the time, but we managed without.
Since the town is so small, it's obviously close to everything, but it also has an amazing view of the vineyards surrounding Laguardia. The hotel itself is very clean, and the rooms are fairly spacious and very cute. The free breakfast is great, and you have a fantastic view from the breakfast room.
Room number 12 (which I had) has an enormous (I mean enormous) PRIVATE balcony with a great view of Marques de Riscal. I ended up inviting friends over for a lunch on my terrace enjoying the sun at the Hotel. For this price, nothing beats it! The owner doesn't speak much English, but sign language is fun and underrated :)
