I spent two nights at this wonderful hotel last year. Rooms are enormous with huge bathroom and any kind of comfort. Breakfast is amazing. Views: breathtaking!! I went there with a "Guided Tour" and honestly those were three superb days spent between vineyards and wine makers. EXCELLENT!!

It's hard to imagine this incredible facility in the middle of no where, but it looks EXACTLY like the photo! The atmosphere and amenities were top notch! We spent two nights there, but were not able to eat in the Michelin dining room, due to hours of arrival and their schedule. The food in Gastromomico was just OK-nothing to write...

What a fabulous experience. The service everywhere in the hotel was outstanding, the food in the restaurants was exquisite, the views are spectacular. Our rooms were oversized and we could walk out to the vineyards. Beautiful all around.

I had seen pictures of the Marques De Riscal hotel, but still they didn't do justice to this magnificent structure! It was a joy to view it from the many different angles while walking around the property.

We were encantated to see this beautiful hotel well far away. Gehry did create in all pieces and any aesthetics cannot deny the force of the building in its -almost natural- environment. The wine is good, the rooms are all different and great. You eat well and see other universally known architects leaving their traces in the surroundings. You wish...

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,...

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.
