The hotel is in the walled part of the town with no parking, however you can be lucky and park in the road, you do need to walk up some steps. The welcome was very warm and friendly. The hotel which is a castle is small and full of character, perfectly positioned in Laguardia which is a very charming village... More

Castillo El Collado is small hotel (10 rooms) in a genuine palace originally built by one of the twelfth century kings of Navarre and rebuilt in the 18th century. Our room and that of one of our traveling companions were large, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The experience is comparable to that of staying in one of the more luxurious... More

Hotel has no parking so you are reliant on finding street parking or a place in a (free) public car park but spaces very hard to come by. At 2 pm on a Friday we took the last space in the nearest public car park approx. 200 metres away via steps and talking to other guests they had not been... More

We were two couples traveling together on a trip from Barcelona through Rioja. We did a lot of research and were debating between the Castillo and Hospederia de los Pajes and opted for the Castillo and were thrilled we did.

We enjoyed our stay here. The views were fabulous and our room / bathroom were huge. The breakfast was great. The only negative is that somewhere in the valley someone seems to have a whole bunch of dogs that kept on barking. We just closed our windows facing that valley and we slept fine.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A castle from the begining of the 19th century and restored in 1996. It has ten rooms and each one is named after an influential person of Laguardia and the Kingdom of Navarra. The decoration of the castle is an example of good taste and sobriety, not missing the fine elegance that enraptures visitors, who come here to spend their time in this idyllic and harmounious paradise with beautiful views full of the local colour. There are three very old function rooms decorated with Arabian ceramics and handcrafted coffered ceiling from the beginning of the 19th century worthy of note. Your expectations to enjoy the extensive menu of traditional dishes from the Basque and La Rioja cuisine will come true. The symphony of light from these handcrafted rooms will leave you with a feeling of tranquility and appreciation of art. ... more   less
