I stayed at the Parador of Leon twice in the last 6 months and both were great experiences. Honestly, although I could spend some time talking about the rooms, I think it's enough to say that the rooms are good with a few old style decorations but all the modern amenities one needs. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom... More

Superb hotel, architecture amazing, feeds the imagination! Service excellent, would recommend a stay here. There's plenty of history attached to the hotel, very relaxed atmosphere but professional, only sampled breakfast which was very good and a great selection / varied choice.

A good Parador, if a little expensive! We have stayed here before and will again as it is convenient for the journey to Santander/Bilbao and the Ferry. It is a fascinating old building and worth the time to look around and read all the notes on the walls. The bar is a great place for snacks / tapas, and for... More

My wife comes from Leon and whenever we come "home" we try to stay here. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the staff exceptionally warm and helpful and food always great. I have stayed in many Paradors throughout Spain but this is my favourite. All the staff are exceptional but Hector deserves a special mention!!

This is an old-fashioned hotel but rooms are spacious with balconies, excellent showers and comfortable beds.Do make sure that you explore the building.The breakfast is as good as it gets.There is plenty of free parking and the location is ideal.

This really is a beautiful building to stay in and convenient to the centre of town. The hotel has good parking facilities, a nice bar and breakfast is good. The back of the hotel does not unfortunately match the front looking more like a 1960s block of flats. Nevertheless, I would stay here if I came to Leon again.

The building is gorgeous both inside and out. The rooms were very comfortable. The food at the hotel was very good. We had breakfast and dinner there. If you like historical buildings, then you will enjoy your stay at this hotel. The location is great and right next to the Roman bridge which is part of the St. James walk.

Stayed here for only one night . It was my starting point for the Walk of St James to Santiago de Compostella . The ancient roman bridge is right next to this parador. First class service, food fantastic,accommodations just beautiful. Wish I could have stayed longer . Highly recommend if in Leon.

Our two nights stay were top notch. Excellent facilities, good service and charming staff made for a very comfortable visit to Leon en-route to the Santander ferry. We can highly recommend this paradore as one of the best we have visited.

The entrance to this parador is spectacular and inside doesn't disappoint either, with cloisters and view of the interior of the church/chapel next door. Rooms were good and as in all Paradors everything was sparkling clean! Breakfast excellent, only wish the evening meal had been as good! The tour group I was with were served separately from main dining room... More
