MADRID – PALACIO DEL RETIRO, AUTOGRAPH COLLECTION. This is with no doubt one of our favorite hotels in Madrid. Despite it is not a «bargain» the hotel offers real value for money when compared to other hotes in Madrid. It is located in front of the Retiro Park. This implies being at 5 minutes walk from the center of the city but in a calm area where it is easy to relax. The setting could not be better: an amazing palace that thanks to its recent renovation has brought all of today´s comforts. See more HERE
SEGOVIA – SAN ANTONIO EL REAL. This hotel is located at a monastery that is a classified monument. The hotel went through a careful renovation and offers free parking and an excellent restaurant where you will be able to enjoy excellent local gastronomy. The hotel is not at the heart of the city center but you could still decide to walk, take a taxi or drive and park next to the aqueduct (public parking available right next to the aqueduct) The hotel offers fantastic value for money.

RIBERA DEL DUERO – CASTILLO DE CURIEL This small hotel is not the most luxurious option in Ribera del Duero, but is probably the most special one. The hotel is located at one of the most impressive castles in Spain and the oldest in the province of Valladolid. A unique experience. The hotel´s restaurant is not the best option in the area though. See more details HERE
BILBAO – HOTEL ARTEXE. Parking in Bilbao is not easy, but this family owned family hotel is located outside of the city center and you will be able to park with no problems. The hotel is also great value for money and you will get a real feeling of being not just in Bilbao, but also in the Basque country. And the hotel is just one mile from the Guggenheim museum. By far not a luxury option but an excellent one in our view!. Find more HERE
SAN SEBASTIAN – VILLA SORO. Since you may have saved by choosing Artexe in Bilbao you can spend a bit extra in San Sebastian. San Sebastian is one of Spain´s most expensive cities, and accomodation should be booked well in advance. We recommend Villa Soro, one of Spain´s most romantic hotels: with just 25 rooms and a fantastic building it is a delightful hotel to stay in. We love the building and parking is free. See more HERE
We provide 2 options, one in Logroño, the capital city, one in Laguardia. In the detailed itinerary, we provide more clues on where to stay.
LOGROÑO – Hotel Calle Mayor. This hotel is our favorite pick in Logroño. It is a mid-sized hotel with an excellent location and lots of charm. Hotels in Logroño tend to be dull but this is one of the few exceptions. The hotel has comfortable rooms and combines in its design modern and traditional architecture. Best rates HERE
LAGUARDIA – HOSPEDERIA DE LOS PARAJES. Located at the beautiful Plaza Mayor in Laguardia, this boutique and luxury hotel is a fantastic option in Rioja. The hotel is as charming as the village of Laguardia, offers beautifully decorated rooms and restaurants that serve high-quality food and wines. See more HERE
