I was so glad I booked us two October 2015 nights at the Parador de Leon based on the peerless Penelope Casas's lifetime of knowing Spain. As she wrote in her Discovering Spain, she'd often visited Leon solely for the pleasure of staying in this sumptuous place. We had an amazingly reasonably priced room in the older wing, also a...

Don’t be fooled by the name “Hostal San Marcos”! This is simply the most luxurious of Paradors, which deserves a five star rating and we would give it six (as a Parador) if we were allowed to. However grand, well-appointed and deluxe it may be - and it is! - the service is faultless, nothing is too much trouble for... More

It's a beautiful historical building in a great location, quiet, near the river with a beautiful promenade, on the way of the pilgrims to Camino de Santiago. Our room had a view to the back and parking, not a nice view but who cares, there's so much to see around. You're sleeping in "history" but in spacious and comfortable room.... More

The only building to consider staying in! Be sure to take the free daily tour to really appreciate the privilege of sleeping among history. Good value for incredibly comfortable, large rooms with lovely bathrooms and even a view of the river. Breakfast is top-notch and the service couldn't have been better. I can't recommend the Paradors highly enough, especially since... More

The Hostal San Marco is a stunning building and it is a privilege to be able to wander around its historic courtyard and corridors. We had a comfortable and well equipped room in the old part of the hotel overlooking the terrace and river. However the service and attitude of some of the staff did not meet expectations. The restaurant... More

This was our first Parador of 4 during a 1 month road trip of Spain. WOW - such a splendid building it was hard to believe we were staying there. Had a ground floor double room with large sitting area, large bedroom and equally large bathroom. All spotlessly clean with nice touches such as chocolates and bottled water. We were... More

We stayed here only for one night and we thought that it would be a stunning stay. But the rooms are way past their heydays. They are large but very old fashioned. Also the breakfast area was so full and busy that you wouldn't think that you are in a five star hotel. The building itself is just stunning and... More
