The ancient hospital of pilgrims in the Way of Saint James is the ideal complement for a visit to the many historic buildings of León, all at walking distance. The rooms are big and well equipped, so as the bar and restaurant. Only the wi-fi was weak in the room, but fully useful to download the newspaper in the bar....

This is an amazing Parador in the heart of Leon - a palace of a place with modern bedrooms added on at the rear. Our first impression was appalling - I was barked at by the receptionist for not immediately producing my passport, but when I returned with it the next receptionist was quite charming. We didn't eat in the...

The two nights we spent in a suite in the historic part of this supposed 5 star hotel was the worst (and most expensive) accommodation of our entire trip throughout Spain and Portugal. The bed was hard, the pillows even harder, the linens scratchy, the wifi barely functioned, the room was drafty, one refrigerator did not work and the other...

We booked a two night, half board stay at this hotel, including the special Christmas Eve 'Nochebuena" dinner for which we paid a supplementary €40 per person. We had a very comfortable room in the newer wing of the hotel, furnished in the same style that ran through the hotel, solid wood doors and comfortable furnishings. The Nochebuena was superb...

While the food was outstanding, the bed and room left somewhat to be desired: bed was cheap, on casters with no brakes, rolled away from the wall if you tried to rest your back on the headboard, which was merely propped between the bed in the wall (rather than affixed to either), and the mattress (or bed) was exceedingly squeaky.

We arrived to a very warm welcome form the car park attendant, however walking into the hotel I was shocked to see how shabby the exterior of the building was.

My husband and I have stayed at the Parador two previous times. We love it!!

Was in Leon for two nights on a business trip. If you are looking for something authentic and right on the famous Way of St. James then this is clearly the place to stay. The rooms have what you need in a good hotel but still gives you the feeling of being in the monastery. I had room 512 and...

We arrived in the afternoon from Segovia to a warm welcome and a breathtakingly beautiful Parador in Spanish renaissance style.

From there we headed uphill to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hostal de San Marcos is one of the most extraordinary historic hotels on the Old Continent. Construction of the building was begun in the 16th century, together with the bridge across the River Bernesga in the outskirts of León. It was built to house the peninsula's western headquarters for the Military Order of Saint James. The project was financed by King Ferdinand the Catholic. The magnificent hotel is a museum of stately function rooms, with a spectacular cloister and chapter house; spacious, elegant guest rooms; a library; and a wonderful restaurant that offers beautifully prepared traditional cuisine. ... more   less
