Did not actually live there, but had a private apartment in León, and used to go up to El Convento almost daily for the air-con and their crazy good Limonada Imperial. The staff who work there are incredibly polite and service-minded, and after being there for 3,5 months (I'm not kidding, I basically lived there!), they were just as nice... More

We spend a night in the hotel attending a wedding of a good friend of me. I already knew the hotel from previous visits to Leon but never stayed. It's pricey for Nicaragua standards but worthy. The room was ample well cooled and comfortable. For a small tip you get your car parked and next day in front of the... More

Once a former convent as the name implies. Large comfortable rooms overlooking a lovely courtyard garden. Buffet breakfast included with a good variety of foods and fresh fruit. A small pool but sufficient to cool yourself after a hot day. Rooms are air conditioned. Wonderful, friendly service. Central location. Thank you Julio Tours for booking this hotel.

I was unfamiliar with Leon and was booked into the hotel by Julio Tours, and I am sure that I couldn't have found a more pleasant place to stay. The hotel is just a few blocks from most of main attractions in Leon. I found the rooms to be comfortable and nicely appointed. There was a safe in my room.... More

The grounds and food here are very good. The hotel room had air conditioning and in room wifi with comfortable beds. The water pressure is inconsistent. Sometimes you'll have a nice shower, and sometimes you just get wet. The staff are very friendly and the location is hard to beat. Next to the hotel is a church, hang a left... More

This hotel is in a good and quiet location. It's well appointed. The common area is very impressive, the rooms are modest, but large and clean. The Breakfasts are buffet style and very good offering a good variety of hot and cold items. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

The rooms are clean, very well appointed and comfortable. Didn't have time to use the pool area but it was nice. Breakfast was a little average. It was better on the day a coach of American guests stayed! We ate in twice but whilst the decor was nice there are better local restaurants nearby.

unique hotel, it was an old convent. If you love the old world places to stay, this is it. Lots of wood, beautiful art on the walls, tiled floors, big ceilings. The rooms are nice but the rest of the place makes up for the rooms. The pool is amazing! quite tucked away in the back so no one is... More

I found my roon to be fresh and lovely. It was near the front entrance, but was not at all bothered by any noise. The linens were immaculate, the lighting, hot water, etc were all fine. The antique objects displayed around the corridors were very interesting; the fountain in the courtward was gorgeous and surrounded by perfectly trimmed hedges &... More

We had a large suite but since it's only the ground floor our room has no windows you can see out of plus it's on the street so there was noise. The main light in the room is part of the fan which only operates at a speed fast enough to get an A380 off the ground. There was no... More
