This hotel is beautiful and the rooms are too. Its walking distance to all main attractions. It has beautiful art work all over the hotel and you can not miss its claustro. You feel like you are transported to the past with all its glory.

We stayed for a Saturday and Sunday night as a friend was getting married in Leon. The hotel is in a magnificent building and the room we stayed in was large, comfortable and had a nice balcony. Parking was easy and secure. The only real problem was the noise. The room was so noisy! We could hear everything that people... More

Manager had left a welcome card in rooms with welcome bottle of water ad chocoloates.This Paradore is lovely and we sat outside on terrace overlooking river where we had a super lunch before setting out and visiting cathedral. Dinner in the evening was very... More

Our trip around northern Spain brought us to Leon and the Hostal San Marcos. Although this is a parador, the size and magnificence of the Hostal took our breath away. What a fabulous building and as we discovered, what a history. We arrived and parked outside the main entrance to unload. A secure long term car park is located on... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our way back to the Bilbao ferry from Galicia. The hotel is magnificent. When you arrive just drive up to the front door (although it looks that you can't!). You can drop off your bags and either take the your car to the car park (free) or they will valet park... More

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.
