Certificate of Excellence
Our parents inherited a small hotel - El Echaurren. They transformed it, converting it into their home and a home for all who visited. Our mother Marisa refined the traditional culinary meals of Granny Julia and stamped her own character and elegance on the dishes. Her efforts were recognised when she won Spain's National Gastronomic Award in 1987.And now we, Marisa's children - the fifth generation of the family, are dedicated to maintaining the essence of the Echaurren while at the same time invest in its future. As such, we've converted our old hostel into a modern, comfortable hotel where nothing is lacking. Our aim has been to give everything a contemporary twist but without losing the sense of warmth. You'll notice a strong Nordic influence in the interior design. We've continued the traditional cooking of our mother which you can enjoy in the Echaurren Traditional restaurant. In 2002 we opened El Portal de Echaurren where Francis lets his creative juices flow freely. It specialises in avant-garde dishes - very personal and primarily sourced from the local area. Two years after its launch El Portal de Echaurren became the first-ever restaurant in La Rioja to gain a Michelin star. It has maintained this distinction ever since. In 2012 Francis won Spain's National Gastronomic Award, a quarter of a century after his mother.

The hotel maintains a nice combination of modern decor while still feeling old and established. We stayed in an older room (some have been redecorated) and it was fine, with french doors overlooking the garden and patio in front of the hotel. Note, the newer rooms are more

We recently stayed with friends during our wine trip to the Rioja wine region. We often stay at Relais&châteaux properties, and this hotel did not disappoint. The setting, the service, rooms and restaurants were excellent. The hotel is about 45 minutes away (via car) from

A well kept secret and jewel of the Rioja region, this modern and family run hotel over five generations has so much to offer. Well located in the ski village of Ezcaray, it is only a twenty minutes drive away from Haro, the Rioja wine capital. The hotel is located in a small

This was a nice hotel but it was a bit of a drive for touring in Rioja. The room was small and designed for a couple, but the lighting wasn't great. The desk area was dark. We had a very nice dinner in the Traditional Restaurant, but it wasn't "out of the park". We also had

Echaurren has been owned and operated by the Echaurren family for five generations and judging by the extremely long shifts worked by the front of house staff, most of the people working there are family as well. Everyone is helpful and imbued with a strong sense of purpose.

Is it pet friendly?
Do not know, but I would say no as the hotel has no garden area suitable to walk a dog around.
