I was in Leon for 2 nights for a wedding and stayed both nights at El Convento. The service was very good. I was friendly greeted by the staff and was accompanied by one of the staff members to the parking area around the back. The room was very spacious and the overall facilities were lovely, with many sculptures and... More

I stayed at El Convento for 4 nights during a conference. The building is lovely, and the convent design is maintained through and through. There are old wooden decorations and icons everywhere. The beds are very comfortable. The food is simple but tasty. The breakfast buffet offers fruit, muesli, cooked items (eggs, rice & beans, bacon) and different breads, mostly... More

Hotel El Convento is a lovely hotel right in the middle of Leon. The gardens are stunning and the hotel itself is filled with religious and artistic artifacts from the days when this was an actual convent. The rooms are lovely, the pool and surrounding area are relaxing and the dining areas are nice. The food is excellent. The city... More

I had a very lovely, tranquil lunch at their restaurant. The hotel grounds are beautiful. The history behind the building (old convent) interesting. The food was excellent. Good wine selection. Will return for lunch at a later date for sure!!!

I stayed here twice this summer with two different groups of students. The hotel is perfect for this kind of group travel. Staff are always accommodating to the needs of the group and individual attention given to each person. They have a medical doctor on call who is outstanding. The staff in the restaurant were the highlight, serving more than... More

Truly, this hotel is a gem and a must-stay. Between the history, courtyard and decor, this place is enchanting and very romantic. The rooms weren't anything to brag about and breakfast was blah. This is a perfect place for couples, or groups looking for something low-key. Hanging around the picture perfect courtyard in the center, plus walking around to admire... More

This place is beautiful! The only place I stay while in Leon. Converted from an old Convent, unique and beautiful. I highly recommend staying here. This is the second time I have stayed here. The breakfast needs some work... Not enough staff and most of the food was gone, and this was at 7:30 am! Ants all over the bread.... More

We had 7pm dinner red but arrived at 430 due to a storm hampering our stroll. Luis seated us and was not only an amazing benefit to the hotel but an even more gracious host.

This is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed out. It is an absolute oasis in a very hot and busy city.

This hotel is a great place to relax after a hot day of sightseeing in Leon. It is about two blocks from the central plaza and cathedral, and within easy walking distance of the Ruben Dario and Revolution Museums. The rooms are nothing exceptional, but perfectly adequate. The large central courtyard is beautiful, and there are several quiet areas to... More
