Situated in the eastern part Rioja and surrounded by some of the best wineries in the area, this country hotel is the ideal place to rest and relax in a quiet and luxurious atmosphere. The old Dominican monastery of Nuestra Señora de la Piedad founded in 1509 by the Bishop of Calahorra, Don Juan de Velasco, has been restored and decorated to become an elegant hotel that welcomes every traveller that comes to Rioja. The hotel provides every guest with all the comfort and modern amenities keeping its old special charm. It offers warm and comfortable rooms with an oversize Jacuzzi and wonderful views.

This is a historical and artistic monument built in Catholic Monarchs Plateresque style using masonry stone with important ornaments and with carpentry or woodwork ceiling. The building was a true master piece in its old times due to its enormous dimensions and its slender architecture. Located in one of the best places of the village, next to the church, it has been accurately called the Aranjuez Palace of Rioja.

After a careful restoration and decoration work done by the designer Pedro Ortega and his team, fifteen well furnished huge rooms open their doors. The big walls of this hotel shelter spaces and corners that will make you go back in time and enjoy with the visual effects offered by its original decoration. Don’t forget to pay attention to the original decorative elements: singular washbasins, mirrors, curtains, lamps, paintings, Trampantojos (paintings on doors and in the walls).

Many activities can be enjoyed in the area, like visits to different wineries with wine tasting that can be arranged by the hotel personnel. The hotel is small enough, only fifteen rooms, to keep the personalized and friendly service that will make you feel a truly special guest.
