It isn't the cheapest place to stay in Leon but if you want to splurge a little, this place is perfect. I'm not sure about the other reviews of mediocre service but my boyfriend and I had excellent service. They were attentive and provided us with everything we needed and spoke English (we knew a bit of Spanish so this... More

La Perla is ideally situated in a city that offers surprising attractions and energy. A beautifully restored and maintained colonial mansion, La Perla is gracious and elegant with excellent staff and extremely attentive management/ownership. The food is reliably fresh and appetizing (not every dish is accompanied by gallo pinto), and the mojitos are well worth the wait of careful preparation.... More
