The hotel was clean and the women at the desk were very friendly and helpful. However, even though the website advertises multilingual services, that didn't seem to be the case at all. When we inquired about dinner the restaurant staff could not be located. They were supposed to be open at 7:00 pm and when we went to check at... More

The front desk personnel were especially kind and helpful even bringing coffee to our room on the date of our departure. So nice!... More

The Hotel Monte Leon, near the beautiful Plaza Principal has been recently completed following a complete refurbishment of the property.
