Always like staying in the paradores but this one is getting a bit tired around the edges. Service is the Barr is disinterested. Rooms are large and nice. Hotel is 15 minute walk from the cathedral. Dining room is beautiful.

In comparison to other accommodations in the area one can secure a sleeping room just as nice at lower price. Rooms very dated with carpets needing a total cleaning. Food and drinks at the hotel also over priced. However the morning buffet - is the very best! Checking in slow. Staff very nice.

Everything about the structure of this magnificent Parador is superb, but sadly, just as in North West Spain's other huge Parador, at Santiago de Compostela, the other hotel is badly let down by the incompetence of the Management staff. In spite of emails, letters and meetings with Management, agreements were not passed to the relevant departments again and again, and... More

The Parador San Marcos is the best Parador I have stayed at in Spain. I prefer it to the one in Santiago de Compostella... San Marcos is the most beautiful historical building with various cloisters and its own Church. The Restaurant meals are first class. It is a remarkable place having once been a hospital,orphanage and a prison during the... More

What an amazing building! Very imposing awe-inspiring external structure, & the internal architecture & fittings were so beautiful! Shame we were there only one night, & didn't have enough time to explore it fully. Staff were very helpful. We stayed in the old section, & although the room was reasonably small, it was well decorated & comfortable. As per other... More

My husband and I stayed at the parador Hostal San Marcos in Leon in September, 2014. We stayed in a suite named "Quevedo." The room has 2 balconies over the entrance to the parador and the room is exquisite. A huge sitting room with antiques, welcoming champagne and fresh fruit dish daily, and a beautiful bedroom with a very comfortable... More

Huge Parador with rooms in the old building and a newish wing. We stayed in this modern wing which had large rooms but they were a little dated. The hotel is a 20 min walk to the old town which is great with a fabulous cathedral. Food at the hotel was first class and we recommend the tasting menu with... More

This is the most amazing hotel that makes you feel like you are in a make believe place. If you have any reason to go to Leon try to stay here. Besides being historic the elegance of the place and the service and the food are all five star.

If you want to recover some of that well deserved sense of reasonable entitlement you have earned as a lifetime, dedicated, hard working son/daughter, father/mother, friend, responsible citizen and professional, please give yourself the opportunity to stay in Parador San Marcos, León, España, at least for two or three nights. You will not regret it. It is a marvelous arquitecture... More
