If you want to be close to the Nica culture this is your place, Lovely place to stay, I recommend for sure. Comfy Rooms, good breakfast and cleansed. Overrated price but still worth it, The staff can be so much better, unfortunately not the best customer service. But the build it's pretty.

This hotel's location is perfect if you'd like to be close to all popular landmarks and restaurants in Leon. It's a quiet hotel. A little spooky feeling here. There's also parking out front they hold off for guests. Our room was spacious with 3 beds, and happy to not see any bugs. But the AC was terribly low. We left...

We checked in at our favoritt place in Leon. No one met us the entrance to help with the suitcases. No smiling person in the reception. In the reception area we observed that things had changed. Paintings on the wall, old stuff like the ski in the bar was gone. The bar was empty, the only furniture was some fridges...

This is a really cool building in a great location in town. It also has rooms with AC and hot water. Those are all good things, especially the cool building part, but there were some issues under the surface that left me unconvinced. We lost water every day we were there (which is common for all buildings in the city)...

I know this hotel gets some bad reviews, but if you're a traveler who's looking to stay in an old mansion in the center of a colonial city, it's a good choice. Pros: close to center of town and old churches. Can walk to a lot from here. The sitting/lounge areas on the interior of the upper floors are open-air...

Good location, easy walk into centre of Leon. Room on busy street so very noisy. Had a double wooden door onto a tiny balcony. The door didn't close properly and was cracked throughout, letting light in (and mozzies) as also big gaps at top and bottom. Very small high up windows with no curtains. No cupboards, just a small hanging...

My husband, adult daughter and I recently stayed at this hotel. The building itself is lovely and very nicely located to the main plaza and largest cathedral, which we enjoyed. However, the negative impressions unfortunately outweigh the positives. The front desk staff varied between being indifferent and rude; I had read reviews prior to committing to this hotel that touched...

We only stayed here 2 nights, on a group tour. One of those hotels where the owners have spent a fair bit of money overhauling the reception and courtyard areas, and very little (at least recently) on the rooms. Our room was a twin, which would have been fine, but one bed was a fold out metal camp bed that...

A goodish location and plenty of lovely open verandah space on the first floor. Our room was very comfortable and nicely remade every day. Everything worked and air-con was very necessary. Good view of the cathedral at sunset. Breakfast just ok and a little on the mean side. Staff need to warm up their face muscles and smile a little...

I was excited to stay at this hotel after seeing the pictures. I was thoroughly disappointed when I saw the common area and the room. For the price I expected something nicer. The rooms were dated and very dark. The common area was cluttered and messy. The service was not great, while they did anything I asked, they did it...
