Which is the best town to stay in la rioja region?

We would love to stay in  Rioja region for two nights. Should we choose a town with easy access to many wineries or should we stay in a hotel with its own winery?

Recommended answer

In Rioja region, where you stay largely depends on whether you have your own car or are you going to rely on public transport. Rioja is best visited in a car as most of the region is made of small villages with unreliable public transport.

If you have your own rental car, location per se does not matter. I would suggest a stay in a vineyard or a bodega. You have plenty of options, probably you can start with this site. There are vineyards all around and hence it is not necessary to be very particular. If I am forced to name one hotel, it will probably be Eguren Ugarte

If you are looking to stay at a winery, then Hotel Marqués de Riscal ought to be your first choice. It is a luxury resort - a place to see and be seen.

One of the most iconic hotels in the region

If you do not have access to a car, make Logroño town as your base station. You can visit the wineries using the vinobus or book yourself into one of the winery tours. I would suggest start your search by checking Airbnb listing of vacation rentals in Logrono. If you want a conventional hotel, you can check Marriot run AC Hotel La Rioja hotel. If not Logroño, the next best option is to stay at a bodega in Haro, a much smaller town than Logrono but full of wineries.
