Housed in a former monastery dating back to 1373, Hotel Los Agustinos has, at various points, served as a monastery, prison and hospital. Today, the ancient walls house a comfortable, modern hotel with beautiful handsome historic features in the heart of La Rioja.
All of the 62 rooms have been renovated to ensure modern standards of comfort with light and simple decor and soft, velvet bedspreads. They also feature air conditioning, minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi. Views from the shuttered windows look out onto the medieval town of Haro.
The corridors leading to the rooms overlook the former cloisters, now covered by a towering glass roof. Below it is the hotel’s El Claustro restaurant which serves a varied menu of Spanish classics, from simple tapas and lighter fare to more elaborate tasting menus and fine dining dishes. Thanks to its location in the heart of the Rioja region, the hotel offers an impressive selection of fine local wines. It is also easy to walk into the town of Haro and take advantage of the many bars, restaurants, bodegas and tasting rooms available in the town's winding, medieval streets.
The 62 rooms have all been updated to provide modern appearance and comfort. Rooms provide air-conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as comfortable beds with soft blankets, surrounded by light and airy decor. The windows all face the hotel exterior and offer views of the surrounding town.
The hotel is set in the middle of the Rioja wine region in the medieval town of Haro, well known in Spain for its annual Batalla de Vino (Battle of Wine), a weekend of celebrations in late June. Rioja’s capital, Logroño, is about 45 minutes away, while Bilbao is just over an hour to the north.
Food and Drink
Guests can enjoy meals in the hotel’s main restaurant, El Claustro, which serves carefully selected tasting menus as well as à la carte options. There is also a casual, rustic wine bar, Bar Las Viñas, which features comfortable seating to relax in while enjoying a drink or light tapas. If you’d like to venture out from the hotel, within easy walking distance you’ll find an excellent selection of bars, restaurants, bodegas and tasting rooms in Haro.
A historic and characterful property, we highly recommend Los Agustinos as a base for exploring the surrounding Rioja wine region. We particularly like the restaurant set in the original monastery cloisters.
