We loved this hotel and the small village it was located in. We really felt like we were in Spain with virtually no other tourists in town except the people we saw at our morning breakfast. The room was large and had a wonderful view of the vineyards and mountains beyond. The owner was so kind and helpful helping us make more appointments at bodegas and restaurants. The town had a few restaurants and a great wine bar. There were no laundry facilities, but that inconvenience was FAR outweighed by being in the nice hotel and authentic village. The village was conveniently located to other small towns, bodegas and restaurants.

This hotel (or guesthouse) is located in the charming village of San Vicente de Sonsierra, in the heart of the famous Rioja wine district - which makes for a very good base if you want to explore the surroundings and maybe (?!) also go for wine tastings. We had a superior room with twin beds and everything was just top-notch, including the flawless a/c, a wonderful bathroom and gorgeous views towards the vineyards. Breakfast was rich and tasty and the owners very forthcoming, providing tips and recommendations for what to see (and where to eat) in the neighbourhood. Wifi worked very well and public parking (free of charge) was available just some hundred meters away. The honesty bar in the ground floor (with a terrace) was an extra plus. The building also boasts an elevator and antique furniture and is tastefully decorated. Room for improvement: Breakfast could be somewhat more varied and be available a bit earlier, now starting at 9:00. (Alternatively, a simple breakfast basket could be offered for early excursionist.)

Stayed for 3 nights at the end of September and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Hotel is in the centre of the lovely village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra with Bodegas all around and in all the town's and villages in the area. Hotel is spotlessly clean with very comfortable bed, large bathroom with superb shower, breakfast had plenty choice with lovely freshly squeezed orange juice. The owner is very welcoming and helpful with advice and booking any Bodega trips. There is a nice honesty bar area in the ground floor with a terrace to enjoy the sunshine. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is located in the small village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra in the heart of the Rioja wine district. We had booked two rooms for us and our adult daughter. The rooms were exceptionally clean and well furnished with restored antique period pieces. The common areas were comfortable and welcoming and the staff attentive and helpful. We especially liked the kitchen (canteen) area where you could help yourself to cold drinks, wine, beer or spirits. Breakfast was a real treat with local meats and cheeses, yogurt and breads served elegantly on beautiful china in a room filled with gorgeous antiques. And I remember the white tablecloths and antique coffee service that made breakfast a memory. Our room overlooked a main village street where locals would gather for coffee and drinks in the evening. It was a short walk to the main square and restaurants, bars and shopping. A short distance away is the village of Abalos where we visited the winery Solana de Ramirez to taste excellent wine and dine in their new restaurant (not to be missed). Overall, this was one of the best hotels on our two week trip through Northern Spain.
