The building and ambience Difficult to find and entering the square.Clear mud maps necessary
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
We have stayed here many times when we travel back to the Uk on the Ferry from Santander.Very good all around!
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
We have stayed many times at this Parador - always clean and comfortable.
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.
lobby is spacious and good atmosphere
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
peaceful location, quiet countryside around.
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
comfortable room with a lot of space there was no space outside,there was not a terras or a swimmingpool
peacefull location, very pleasant staff, comfortabe room the food was not great
the peace and tranquility. the beautiful mauntains. the village.the wine.
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.
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
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
The hotel was charming and the staff were wonderful. The rooms were absolutely beautiful. Absolutely nothing!
Great menu and dining experience and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.
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.
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.
A typical parador, with the ambience of a historic building and excellent food and drink. Slightly expensive.
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.
Atmospheric and comfortable with good food nothing
The building, the service, the room, the staff, the restaurant, exellent. No.
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
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
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.
The hotel was beautiful and very romantic. Near good places to eat. Staff was excellent. Because of the thick walls internet access in the rooms was not available.
We loved this hotel! We had a superior double room which had a huge spa bath, was very spacious and overlooked the village square and monastery. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The hotel is in a beautiful historic building with beautiful traditional decor but also offers modern comforts such as a lift and free internet access. It's ideal as a base to tour round the picturesque villages and do wine-tasting at the many vineyards close by. I'd recommend a visit to the Marques de Riscal Hotel in Elciego, to see the amazing architecture designed by Frank Gehry who designed the Guggenheim in Bilbao. They don't do evening meals, but this was only a problem for us as we arrived during the village fiesta when restaurants were all booked up!
We loved the little touches that made the hotel so unique. It succesfully blended comfort, luxury and history. There was an occassional drain smell from the toilet. There were no real English speakers, but we managed to muddle through with lots of hand gestures!
The accommodation was wonderful, very quiet, beautifully restored. Internet did not work in the rooms, only in reception lobby, but was not a problem.
The monastry is beautiful and it was great to stay in a small town. Haro was only a 5 minute drive and it's close to the mountains (half an hour) and in the middle of the wineries. Would have been great if the hotel staff spoke a little more english but they were still helpful and friendly
Beauty of the hotel, quality of the welcome and generally high quality of attention from the staff, location of hotel, breakfast, international channels on the tv. 1. Wi-fi did not work but computer in lobby did. We weren't sure at the time if the problem was in the wifi or our computer. Now we know it was a hotel issue. 2. bed mattress uncomfortable--springs poked us. Same problem in most hotels we've stayed in on this trip to Spain. Good foam mattress is a better way to go. 3. bathroom sometimes smelled unpleasant We did not bring these issues to the staff's attention
I didn't die there was a major bed bug infestation and I got bitten all over. The staff refused to help. The wireless internet didn't work and the staff, again, refused to help. The one computer in the lobby had about as many viruses on it as there were bed bugs in our room...
A very charming Inn in an old monastery building located in a small village in La Rioja. The old architecture and murals make it a special place. Nice buffet breakfast included in our rate. Only 5 km to wine tasting in Haro and tapas scene in historic Sto Domingo. Free parking on streets nearby hotel. Olympic-sized town pool with free-entry courtesy of the hotel is a two minute walk and was a great outlet for our seven-year-old.
Have stayed at many such country hotels in Europe and this is above average. Very quiet and relaxing after a day touring. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Some street signage in the village directing the location would have been helpful.
Ambience, standard of breakfast & delivered to room on request, standard of accomodation Surprised not sign posted in village
Really lovely hotel in a converted palace. Excellent decor, very comfortable rooms , beds and bathrooms. Excellent staff- very warm , welcoming and helpful. Great breakfasts Limited range of food available in the evening
The room was bright, spacious and extremely comfortable. The staff were courteous and helpful at all times.
Receptionist very pleasant. helpful and spoke good English. Useful location en route to Salamanca from home. No evening meal available but nearby tapas bar quite good.
A delightful hotel, not very friendly, staff at the bar, not around enough, the restaurant seemed to empty all of the time, and the outside terrace and inside the hotel has a very bad smell of cat pee, they seem to have a serious problem. Our room was on the front of the hotel, and even with treble glazing the noise of the traffic was seriously disturbing.
The warm welcome and the meal with typical dishes from the area. Only 15km from Burgos but the hotel is in the middle of a typical small village. If you like a design hotel with very good food and on the country-side, go for it. I was very happy nothing to say.
We loved this charming hotel! It had comfortable beds, warm colors, nice decor, good size bathrooms, nice showers, wood floors and plenty of amenities. This is a hotel, not a hostal. Though there wasn't anyone at the reception desk when we arrived, we received a warm welcoming tour from one of the sibblings. We were checked in by one of the twin sisters. She was very sweet, and went out of her way to help us. At the Masip Bar next door, we met the other twin sister who was also very hepful and sweet. We ate at the gourmet restaurant and were pleased at the quality and flavor of the food prepared by the chef -another sibling (though it was quite pricey). The continental buffet breakfast was good. Park in front or garage is 1 1/2 blocks away
convenient stop on the way back to Bilbao. Although the town itself does not have much to see, the surrounding villages are very pretty and interesting. The hotel itself was confortable and clean.
The room was clean and comfortable. The position was central with easy access to restaurants and bars. Difficult to find. Room looked out on derelict buildings. There was no balcony as described in the hotel information. Staff spoke little English. Breakfast was in the cafe and it was not clear what was available to guests. The "garden terrace" was a small rectangle of grass surrounded by derelict buildings!
Staff very friendly and helpful. Great location in this vibrant town just off the Plaza Mayor. Lots of bars and restaurants around. Lovely typical Spanish town, The carpark was away from the hotel but didn't pose a problem. No menu for breakfast so it was unclear what was on offer to guests in the cafeteria.
The central position in an ancient town, close to the churches and main square. Modern, well run hotel inside an old facade Not easy to find, as street signage was minimal
Situated in a beautiful unspoilt Spanish town. I had a very relaxing overnight stop on my journey. Will definetely return
