There was a mix-up with our reservation at Posada Fuente Castalia, where we wanted to stay, and so we stayed here instead. The courtyard was nice, with wifi and a good breeze, true to the photos others have posted here. The room, while small, was also decent. But the service was terrible. Really, there wasn't any service, so it's hard... More

It looks beautiful when you enter, with it's central court yard. Then you get to your room with it's prison style cots for beds and thin mattresses. The rooms are very inconsistent. Some rooms have "better" beds. No hot water for us. AC was working which is good since it was in the high 90s. Food was mediocre. Rooms are... More

I love this little hotel. Owned and operated by a woman whose mother grew up on the premises with 12 brothers and sisters, Posada del Doctor is clean, safe, and charming. The rooms are spare--many have only twin beds, but mine was very comfortable with well-functioning AC, a solid mattress that afforded a good night's sleep, and hot water in... More

We arrived in the evening and the man at the desk spoke English just fine (better than my Spanish). This is a converted villa, a short walk from the central plaza and many tourist locations (churches, monuments, etc.) The water was hot, the AC was cool, the rooms were on the small side but we were there to see the...

As the other reviewers stated the courtyard is lovely. The room was clean....water pressure and temperature were fine. The hard part was that it was basically run by the cleaning staff, no one to really take charge...no english speakers. That's fine, we are in a Spanish speaking country, we got by with our pidgeon Spanglish. I'm sure there are better... More

Before arriving at this hotel, we were told it had a restaurant and travel agent, it has neither!. It is located 4 -6 blocks from any restaurants. We were the only ones staying there, and they gave us thier smallest room, very hard bed,with almost no light, and tiny bathroom. It has a really nice courtyard area, and is very... More

We stayed here for one night on a tour of Central America. The hotel comprises just eleven rooms set around a courtyard in what was a doctor's house (hence the name). Because it is a conversion, the rooms are small with very little storage space. As we were only staying the one night and did not need to unpack, this... More

The good bits: The location is good, just off one of the main squares in town, and easy to walk to the cathedral and the rest of the centre of Leon. The hotel is small and the main courtyard is nice to hang around in. Like many places in Nicaragua, there are a bunch of rocking chairs - it's very... More

My son and I retreated from the heat and humidity of Leon to the Posada del Doctor and it's air conditioning. The A.C. units are new, quiet and powerful. Air conditioning is not common in Nicaragua and it's expensive so don't expect a hostel rate. Still costs were reasonable and we were given a discount for our 11 days. At... More

I booked this hotel after looking at the website and I was very disappointed. The rooms in the hotel were small and dark. The bathroom was also small and did not have a real door.
