Hotel is absolutely amazing - like staying in a palace/museum. We had a nice big westerly facing room (virtually a junior suite) with balcony overlooking gardens. We dined both evenings on the terrace overlooking the river - not the main dining room - as the weather was exceptionally hot. Good value. Hotel is well located for a stroll into the... More

If you like the pictures, then you will love your stay. Its like spending the night in a museum. We spent over a 1/2 hour just walking around and exploring. The rooms are large and quiet and the bed comfy for European standards. The breakfast buffet was included in the price and it was also very good, free on sight... More

Great hotel in 70s/80s but now it's not up today. El Parador de Leon needs a great reform of the rooms (old beds and furniture need to be replace) to hold high class 5 stars GL. We're in a room with my wife and twi sons. Service very helpfull. Rich breakfast with all you can wish in a good hotel.

We have been before in Paradores and we have the same feeling that excellent monumental palaces lack maintenance and cleaning to keep the charm. This one is no exception. The rooms are spacious but it seems that the last time vacumm cleaning was done and the courtains washed was too long ago. We thought that allergic people should avoid this... More

You cant believe that your hotel is inside a two star stop in. Michelin. The magnificent cloister is beautiful and is part of this hotel. The rooms are regular, but very clean and well kept. The restaurant is typical and the waiters very helpful even at 11 pm at night.

Having previously walked the Camino with a friend I took my wife on a return trip to drive over the route. I had stayed in 2 of the best Paradors on the last trip 4 years ago this one in Leon and the other in Santiago de Compestela. The Hostal San Marco's has a great setting on an enormous Square,...

We stayed at this Parador during a week long driving tour of northern Spain. I doubt you will find amore stunning hotel anywhere. The ex Monastery has been turned into a magnificent high class hotel whilst retaining large parts of the original cloisters and church around which you are free to explore. Everything is of the highest quality as you... More

My jaw dropped when I realised thst the building I was looking at was actually the hotel I was looking for. It felt so good parking outside in the Plaza and unloading my cases; like I'd won the lottery. The interior doesn't disappoint with an impressive reception area and courtyard like a cathedral, and being connected directly to the church... More
