It's a modern and fancy building near the river in a small town in Basque Country. The atmosphere is quiet, a place to rest and enjoy simple things like a good cup of wine or some tasty and local tapas. The rooms are really cosy and well-decorated. The shower is as amazing as someone can imagine. I almost spend my... More

Great designer hotel with interesting modern deco. Some of the rooms have open plan toilets. Ours had a curtain as a separator between the sleeping area and bathroom. It's one of those places either you love or hate because it's so unique and every room is different. It depends on luck what room you get. I believe some rooms are... More

This hotel is lovely. Breakfast is great and the staff are happy to help and positive. It's in a charming little town. We drove to Logrono in 25 minutes. We are from Madrid so it's nice to stay somewhere remote

This is, as many other visitors have commented, a quirky modernistic hotel which fits in well with the spirit of the region. Its futuristic exterior aside, however, some reviewers have found it spooky, with dark interiors and challenging artwork, but whatever one's personal tastes, it is well done and elegant. Perhaps the frosty service is meant to reflect the interior... More

Viura is indeed a different experience. I felt like I walked into the home of a very modern, art collector. The rooms/bath were very comfortable and the public spaces gave me the idea of lounging in my own living room and not a hotel. We had the tasting menu for dinner and it was truly a culinary experience.

The hotel is squeezed in the little Rioja town, next to the church, and it does not look good there. It is modern architecture, but next to the old church looks funny. It would be much better if it was somewhere in the open. The decor is simple by design, lots of naked concrete and metal. Too much IMO. And... More

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
