A favorite with anglers and hunters in season, this cheery spot across from the mouth of the Urbión River (where it meets the Najerilla) has wood-trim bedrooms with red-check bedspreads and an excellent restaurant specializing in venison, wild boar, partridge, woodcock, and game of all kinds. Juan Carlos Jiménez and his nephew, chef Juan Carlos Esteban, serve some of the best caparrones (pygmy red beans from Anguiano) in La Rioja. The hotel has options for full- or half-board,
or room only. Friendly staff can advise on area hikes.
