The food was excellent - chef very gifted. everything was great - loved our stay in Laguardia so much we extended by 2 extra days
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.
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.
Free use of the internet. Personel taste, but the decor of the room is of an individual taste and would not be ours.
Ideally situated in the Rioja region and also handy for the short trip to Bilbao to catch the lunchtime ferry home.
Staff were very friendly. Childrens inside play area. WiFi in hotel did not go out to pool area.
Free parking (if you don't use their underground garage). Swimming pool & less than a 10 minute walk to the beautiful old town
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Beautiful design , excellent food and good service in a very pleasant and quiet setting . Ideal for a few days of relaxing ;
everything.the staff was excellent.so nice and trying to help in every single detail. So profesional. nothing.absoLutely perfect in any case.
Everything! It should be a little bit cheaper
The hotel was amazing. Magnificent old building which has been sympathetically restored and converted to a luxury hotel.
Excellent staff, beautifully finished hotel, restuarant food to be recommended. Beautiful bedroom but bathroom a little cramped
Superb staff service and outstanding cuisine in a sensitively restored historic building affording luxurious comfort. It even has its own secure parking. Nil.
Garage fee of just 8 euros was reasonable and close to hotel.
The site is very pleasant Room was cold an could not be heated properly. The room was noisy from outside street noises as well as being near the lift which was also disturbing through parts of the night.Very few of the staff spoke english
The building was quite attractive, but it lacked the magical atmoshere associated with these kinds of hotels in Spain. Some of the staff should learn how to smile, it means a lot to guests.
Wi-fi connection was poor and failed to connect to most sites I tried to access for my work.
Position for centre and a unique hotelgreat for fiestas Battalla del vino in June.
Beautiful hotel. Magnificent building. Very centrally located in Haro. Bedrooms were really spacious and wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay in Los Agustinos. Staff very helpful No.
Relaxing and comfortable supported with good staff and excellent facilities The sofas in the atrium were more about image than comfort, but this is a very minor gripe.
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.
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.
Everything - the rooms are great, the hotel is beutiful
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.
The relaxed atmosphere; spotlessly clean; calm decor; comfortable; extremely helpful owners.
The hotel owners were more helpful than anywhere we've stayed before. They will do anything to help you and make your visit memorable. They gave us maps, itineraries, suggestions for sightseeing, and even made dinner reservations and bookings for wine tours. They are first-rate. There is a rooster in the village that likes to get up early....
We have stayed here many times when we travel back to the Uk on the Ferry from Santander.Very good all around!
Lovely setting in historic town centre. The Parador benefits from secure (underground) parking and is right next to the cathedral.It provides an oasis of calm. Like all paradores this one doesnt serve evening meals until 20.30 - far too late for many northern europeans. Fortunately there are splendid restaurants nearby.
The building and ambience Difficult to find and entering the square.Clear mud maps necessary
Great central location opposite cathedral, free parking, nice lounge area in mediaeval hall, bright clean room overlooking the square Service ok, but a bit institutional
We have stayed many times at this Parador - always clean and comfortable.
Wonderful setting right next to the cathedral and close enought to do a fantastic wine tour at Marques de Riscal
excellent location in beautiful city poor food quality much below expectations
Old historical building in the center of town next to cathedral, good breakfast Unfriendly, even arrogant staff, the hotel has been of a v good standard 20 years ago, today it´s not on the level as expected, dark rooms
lobby is spacious and good atmosphere
The hotel was charming and the staff were wonderful. The rooms were absolutely beautiful. Absolutely nothing!
peaceful location, quiet countryside around.
the peace and tranquility. the beautiful mauntains. the village.the wine.
A very interesting place - we had a really good giuded tour of the Monastery - the guide kept apologising for her English but it was charming and we understood it very well the meals were excellent in the hotel and the restaurant acrooss the car park Nothing
comfortable room with a lot of space there was no space outside,there was not a terras or a swimmingpool
Quiet relaxing hotel in a beautiful valley. The rooms are clean and quiet. The staff were quiet and relaxed and provided adequate service. We booked a wine seller tour. It could not be completed as there are time limits and guide bookings to be arranged. The wine celler is approximately 8 klm away from the hotel. The web booking suggested it was in the hotel.
the room and general hotel were very good lack of restaurant on the day we were there is not acceptable in a 4 star hotel
peacefull location, very pleasant staff, comfortabe room the food was not great
The rural setting in the mountains and an old monastary were very impressive. The size and quality of the rooms were very large by European standards. It was a tremendous value! Nothing
The hotel is ok, location so so the food in the hotel is really bad. Dinner was the worst in our 9 day trip, next to bad street food.
Room change due to water leak in original was very acceptable and made the difference to what would have been a disappointing holiday.Swimming pool was nice and area around pool clean. Food in restaurant good and reasonable when special weekend menu. Location OK for travellers but not for long stay. Bar area not very comfortable,and lack of comfortable quiet area (salon) was drawback.
Personel speaks only Spanish, nothing else
In general I thought the food was not of a very good quality. Especialy breakfast which wasn't available untill 8am, The selection was poor and the cold meats etc were not chilled in any way, nor covered to stop fly's.
The special dinner was excellent
Friendly staff (mostly) Could do with more English speaking staff & gymnasium
Overall the hotel was good but spoiled by a disasterous dinner experience Dinner and the service to go with it!
nice clean and fairly cheap hotel. Nice big pool to keep you cool in the heat of the day. not having a car its a bit far from town (20-30 min walk)
The parking Noisy, Squeaky Bed
The proximity to the main town of Haro The tradional hot English breakfast was cold. We were very dissapointed with this. The cost also represented poor value for money.
Food ie dinner, very restricted and very poor ( to say the least ). It is not a 4* hotel in many respects.
Atmospheric and comfortable with good food nothing
The Hotel it's self, along with the location was first class. This was the fourth Parador that we have stayed in, and both my wife and I thought that this was,possibly the best. The food was good, and the staff were polite.
Very peaceful and calm. Would have liked some local information. Some friends had stayed previouly and had told us about the wonderful Cathedral containing the Cockeral ! We would never have known otherwise.
The building, the service, the room, the staff, the restaurant, exellent. No.
The decor in the traditional Spanish castle style. The food was Spanish and excellent which was what we expected. Porterage was poor but it was a Sunday onnwhich we arrived
Fantastic hotel in rural, off the beaten track Spain in the heart of Rioja country. Exactly how i imagined a parador to be. Good choice of typical Riojaian restaurants in town. No
Design and interiors - renaissances style, hotel's bar - variety of tea, nice vine list. Location - rather quite place, not in the tourist area, but still rather near. The room was a little bit small, but comfortable. Very fine and expensive windows. Please take away awful lithographs over the beds. Besides they do not match at style and the colour palette used in the room.
A typical parador, with the ambience of a historic building and excellent food and drink. Slightly expensive.
Great menu and dining experience and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.
Very attractive hotel, nicely furnished in keeping with fact that it used to be an old monastry. Good restaurant - and open Sunday evening! No door directly from car park into hotel - and it was snowing.
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!
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.
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 were very helpful. Rooms were a good size and furnished very nicely.
This is a fantastic hotel and a great value. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.
Excellent hotel,very nice staff..would stay there again!!!!
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.
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
The location outside the city of Logrono.
comfortable elegant hotel, sadly lacking a bar or restaurant
Wonderfull gardens very well maintainrd.Free Wi Fi. Modern plumbing.Typical Spanish Hotel.
This hotel was a convenient stop-over between Barcelona and Santander.We arrived in the evening one day and left after breakfast the next.The bedroom was fine and so was the breakfast.The evening meal was moderate.
Friendly staff and the big parking area Nothing
The green gardens. The menu of the hotel Lack in choices.
Nice comfortable room. Good value for money as a breakfast was inlcuded. No food or drinks available in evening - unfortunately Sunday is not a good night for this in this hotel or many others in Spain. Had to walk into Navarette to obtain a meal in the evening. Reception staff not the most helpful - very matter of fact.
The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. It was in its own grounds and had plenty space to walk our dogs. Very easy to find. We arrived on a sunday after a 7 hour drive only to find out that there was no food or drink on site at weekends........something booking .com forgot to mention in their write up. There was only one member of staff that we saw. Breakfast was basic and the waitress never smiled or spoke to us. We cancelled our booking for our return journey.
The friendliness of the staff & their willingness to answer all questions. Whilst not in the village it was just a short & pleasant stroll to the village. The shower was marvellous & there was a bath. The bathroom & bedroom were both spacious & well equipped. Fridge & free safe, fluffy large towels & hairdryer. Breakfast was very tasty with an option of cooked too & plentyful supplies of all types of breakfast. Very quiet too & free internet access & no need to worry about parking car. Would certainly return as great for Rioja bodega visits & less than 2 hours from ferry on good roads, but watch for updates on extending road network if tom tom/sat nav not current.
Very accessible, quite secure, very clean, helpful staff. Although breakfast was very good, it is a pity that the restaurant was not open at weekend, and that we do not appear to have had prior notice of this. We also understand that when open the menu is very limited, which is not good.
staff very hospitable, despite their lack of english or our lack of spanish.
Liked the old charm, good breakfast, helpful staff Initial room was a bit pokey but we were switched to larger room at no extra cost
The bed was quite comfortable. The location was quite simply awful! The little town was pretty but closed on arrival. There was nowhere to eat or even get a cup of coffee. The hotel offered limited food and was reluctant to serve drinks in the afternoon. The room was reasonably clean however the beams were covered with dust and the bedroom floor was dirty. The staff on arrival were very unwelcoming. The location was atrocious as there was a horrible block of flats in front of the hotel. It was the worst place we stayed in Spain. Simply awful! And overpriced.
The atmosphere in the viiage of Brinas and the winws available in the district make this a good place to stay, it is full of charatcre Not relly a complaint, but the bar was not open!
peaceful location only restaurant in village was very bad
The hotel is in a beautiful village of old architecture and the hotel had lots of character and was very clean and had an excellent breakfast no
