My reservations were for a standarrd room, but I requested one with a view to the downtown area. It was awesome. Room was very spacious and clean at all times. First floor restaurant was our problem; we didn't have a good experience there. Things like an iron in the room, or old basic phones, made of this review a 4... More

We stayed one night at the Condesa/HJ and it turned out to be the perfect location - right on Leon's stunning and bustling central plaza. While there is certainly no shortage of restaurants in the area, we decided to eat dinner at the hotel - they have a nice upper-floor restaurant (and huge bar) overlooking the plaza, which appeared to...

Many people visit Leon to buy leather goods. The leather district is about 10 minutes away by taxi (50 pesos taxi) and the Holiday Inn is there. But there is nothing else there but shopping and the bus station if you are traveling by that mode of transportation. But we liked being on the plaza and strolling with the people,... More

Our first trip to Léon and wanted to spend a couple days exploring the city. This hotel was perfect. The location is unbeatable. The staff was friendly and helpful. It's not the newest hotel I've ever stayed in, but the price was excellent and the overall value was great. If I go back to Léon, you'll find me there.

Drove into Leon with no reservation at rush hour and saw this hotel. Tired from a long drive we decided to check it out even though it was an American chain hotel. Have to say the location cannot be beat as it faces onto the Historic Central Square. It is unfortunate that the renovation of this old building was completed... More

Probably the best location for a hotel in Leon. The staff was great, the rooms were clean and housekeeping did a wonderful job. I booked my room for a week and paid $31 dollars and was more then happy with my room. The only complaint I have was the WiFi was horrible

Stayed here2 nights for the view of the awesome Plaza Principal. Unfortunately there is a karaoke bar on the plaza that entertained us until 3am on the second night. The view was worth the negatives. The hotel is ideally located for exploring Leon Centro. It is time the hotel replaces the towels - very thread bare.
