Stayed here overnight on a quick NorthernSpain adventure and loved everything, the quirky boutique layout, private terrace, bed quality, shower pressure, staff and wow the bar!
Given the hotel is a cubist (?) daydream attached somewhat awkwardly to a medieval rural village, who would expect it to work so well with true city slick, charming front desk, first class resto, and the smoothest bartender, with a knack for taking Gins and Tonic to a new level. I don't really dink gs&t, but it was hot, it was Spain, etc. anyway, we enjoyed a range of fab gin and tonics, with varied types of tonic not just a range of gins, culminating in an extraordinary coffee bean G and T which sounds awful (I don't even drink coffee) but was delicious and one which I have tried since to recreate very unsuccessfully.
Great base for a wine tour of the Rioja, really top class hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Composed of whimsically superimposed cubes that seem to surge forcefully from the centre of the earth; punctuated by French windows that flood the rooms with views of the relaxing scenery. Situated in Villabuena de Álava in the Rioja Alavesa, Viura is perfect as a base for discovering La Rioja. Only 20 minutes away from Logroño and from Haro and 10 minutes from such emblematic wine cellars as Ysios and Marqués de Riscal. In addition to its magnificent restaurant, the bar, a fine old wine cellar and a gymnasium, Viura has wonderful terraces on the top floor with panoramic views of the San Andrés Church, built between 1538 and 1728, and of all the mountains of the Sierra de Cantabria. All hotel guests have at their disposal, without any charge, wireless internet connection, soft drinks from the mini-bar, gym access, bicycles and parking. The hotel also offers dvd players and a wide range of movies on DVD, for free. ... more less
