There is a cat right there where you're having breakfast, trying to steal from your plate. The carpet in my room smelled as somebody was murdered right there last week. The air conditioning does not work. Water hardly comes out from the faucet, and the toilet requires you to take the toilet tank cover every time if you want it... More

A great building in a perfect location that needs help. Management is cutting corners where ever they can. The towels are all shredded around the edges and should have been replaced long ago. The large balcony and very small pool both need to have more than 4 chairs. The AC works, the water runs and breakfast, while slow, was fine.

This place has such potential. The location is fantastic and the lobby and small "grounds" of the hotel are really charming. The service is underwhelming. The staff needs training. The safes need to work, the waiters need to show up, the rooms need to be cleaned. They need new beds and much better cleaning staff. Spiders in the bathroom and... More

First impressions in our room were not good as the carpet, bedding, bed cover and towels are all stained and dirty looking. It has potential but seems like they are trying to cut corners therefore is not good value for your money right now. They were not busy in the hotel, bar or restaurant - probably because prices are high.... More

La Perla is a very nice charming hotel, located right in the center of Leon, Nicaragua. if you love colonial architecture then you will definitely enjoy your stay. The staff is really nice and helpful.

We came here because of all those positive comments. BUT..We were massively disappointed! The Service at the check in and at breakfast is almost not existing! In the first room we had we have been woken up by screaming cleaning staff at 6 in the morning then asked for a different room.....and it got even worse. The noise from the... More

The old colonial house with galleries surrounding the courtyard is beautiful, and the location three blocks from the central square is perfect. But at the moment, nothing else is good about this hotel. The rooms are gloomy with old - definitely not period - furniture, threadbare carpets and a lack of comfort items. The service and breakfasts are just OK,... More

My husband and I opted to stay at La Perla two nights to celebrate my birthday. The stay was we worth it. Our room was very comfortable, had air conditioning and was right by the pool. The staff was lovely and attentive. It was well worth the extra dollars spent to celebrate in beautiful surroundings.

This is not one of the cheaper spots in Leon, but it is worth the expense. The building is really as beautiful as it looks in the photos, the staff are helpful and friendly, the rooms beds and bathrooms are all great. I really liked the dark wood furnished rooms, the courtyard, the breakfast and the location, which is right... More

La Perla has such a beautiful presentation it draws you to see whats inside. the 150 year hotel is extravagant. The staff is extremely nice and the hotel is kept very clean. One con about the hotel is that wifi wouldn't work in our room.The room was $120 a night. The location is right in the heart of Leon's city... More
