Wonderful Designer hotel in small Rioja village
Reviewed 7 days ago

Stayed for one night in June on our way to Portugal. The hotel is very arty and design orientated. If you do not like modern finishes probably not for you. The staff were all excellent but it was the restaurant dinner which was the high point. The tasting menu was superb and as you would expect a great range of wines.
The village is very small but the scenery surrounding it is wonderful. Would stay again

The ideal hotel to visit La Rioja
Reviewed 3 months ago

Viura is a modern, art oriented small hotel in the center of Rioja. The service was outstanding and the restaurant was excellent- Chef Javi is an artist. The hotel really promotes winemaking in the town with small winery tours and a local wine selection that invites you to try them. You are never more than 30 mins away from anywhere you want to go in Rioja.

Wonderful stay
Reviewed 4 months ago

Very contemporary, beautiful, interesting, architecturally "outside of the box" (pun intended!!). Or, should we say "boxes"? The hotel appears to be literally built out of boxes, because I guess it is. Check in was to the right; piano bar to the left.

The hotel has 34 rooms, including 4 suites with terraces like we had. Before meeting friends for dinner that night, we lounged on our terrace with a half bottle of Cava and a little plate of thin stick chocolates.

In the morning, we had a complimentary breakfast. The "offerings" were fruit (watermelon, strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, cantaloupe), cereals, toast and bread, croissants, sweet breads, cooked to order eggs and Spanish jamon.

Disappointed
Reviewed 6 months ago

Following the good comments, we booked for one night planning on enjoying this moment in La Rioja and this Hotel. This was wrong.

The rooms are minimalist and missing a few items such as complimentary water, kettle... Also the king bed is actually two double bed combined together which make not very pleasant to stay in the middle of the bed. Nonetheless, the outside design and the inside restaurant and Bar are beautiful and very pleasant.

Now for my major issue, I will say it is the restaurant: we stayed for dinner at the restaurant and took the tasting menu. What a mistake! Out of the 6 course menu, we were able to enjoy only 2 dishes. Let's put apart the appetiser which is more like a small bite, the octopus was quite good and tasty, reflecting the region flavours and then it started to be very disappointing, the tuna was vey dry and slightly overcooked and the pork a total disaster (overcooked, over salty, unbalanced flavours in the plate), gave us the feeling the chef was in hurry or not happy to be cooking and the dessert was just average.

The service team seemed overwhelmed, however the maitre d'hotel (I believe was his role) made the best effort to make our experience the best. But the waiters need to be trained on how to explain the dishes and how to drop them on the table and not throwing them instead. A big thank you to the bartender, who was always smiling and very helpful.

This is only my opinion and I hope we have been very unlucky, but from my point of view such Hotel should pay extra attention to the restaurant and the quality of food offered but also the service.

Great Breakfast
Reviewed 6 months ago

Hotel is very modern. The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast. The selection is not huge but everything was high quality. You can have fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh made eggs and a buffet of goodies. Coffee is really good too. They also gave us complimentary drink at the wine shop next door. Located in a small town. Nothing was open except for the hotel and wine shop when we were there. Would recommend it if you are looking for a hotel in the area.
