Delighted to have stayed at such a well preserved building soaked in history. The hotel is just magnificent with all it's fine paintings, antique furnishings,etc.. The most superb breakfast buffet (of this style) I have seen and enjoyed - brilliant. For dinner, we had the '50th. Anniversary' tasting menu which included appropriate beverages. Again, each course was just great and... More

The setting is marvellous: a monastery built to proclaim the King's faith and assist pilgrims on their Camino de Santiago (this is where the name "Hostal" de San Marcos comes from). Convert this palatial holding into an up-market hotel (what the Parador chain was established for) by adding a wing of modern bedrooms while converting the old cloisters into luxury... More

Always wanted to stay at a Parador and this was our chance! The room was superb, with twin beds, good bathroom, superb shower, and delightful balcony. The site was lovely for a walk by the river after dinner. As most visitors would wish to see the main historic sites of the old town, I advise being aware of the15 min... More

A hotel that has its own convent and church you will not find often. The rooms are in a modern annex and provide all modern conveniences. Very big rooms in fact. Silent a/c and curtains that shut out the blazing sun. Breakfast is abundant in its own breakfast hall. The dining room on the ground floor is lovely, but we... More

We stayed at the Parador in Leon for a wedding in May. The hotel itself is stunning and the attached cathedral a very interesting tour. Breakfast is outstanding. The rooms themselves are fine, but a tad dated. The wedding reception that we attended was very well done, which may indicate that the food is typically good as well. Great outdoor... More

I could repeat what most travellers say about this hotel but I will spare you. Just finishing up a three week stay in Northern Spain and my number one regret is not spending every available night in a Parador! Five star service from true professionals!I had no idea what a parador was before this trip I can't stress it enough... More

Stayed here on the return leg of a motorbike tour to Galicia. Absolutely stunning hotel. The building is beautiful and the photos don't do it justice. The rooms are very modern despite the external appearance and extremely comfortable. Helpful staff, nice terrace bar and excellent breakfast. Worth a little extra for something so memorable

This has to be one of the best Paradors in Spain. Wonderful rooms, service and food. Leon is a great city with lots of historic buildings and other interesting places. The only thing lacking here is a swimming pool.

We stayed in this Parador some three years ago so we had a good idea what to expect. Many of the paradores are converted historic buildings and over the years we've stayed in several very impressive examples but Leon is the most imposing we've experienced. It's a former monastery - and between its time as a monastery and becoming a... More

This hotel in the old monastry must be one of the most amazing hotels in the world. We were lucky to stay in the old part of the hotel. Room and the building was fascinating. Wifi was ok. Breakfast was marvellous. Service friendly and helpfull. There is about 1 km walk to town center.
