Top 10 Hotels in Spain

A guest room at Hotel Viura in Villabuena de Alava, Spain


Hotel Viura

From the outside, this hotel might make you feel a little off-kilter. This property is not conventional, with its tip-tilted cubed architecture. Even better is the juxtaposition of its setting, next to a 16th-century church in a traditional Spanish village. Dramatic guest rooms have a modernist look without feeling too cold, and each comes with a mini-bar stocked with a small wine selection chosen by the house sommelier. The sommelier also makes his presence known in the restaurant, where a menu of Riojan and Basque specialties includes local produce and seafood. For recreation, guests can explore area wineries, socialize at the neighboring bodegas or simply stroll next door to the Basque pelota court and take part in this traditional sport.
