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

My boyfriend and I spent several days at La Perla in the Junior Suite. We arranged for an airport transfer through the La Perla as well. The driver was about 15 minutes late which caused a bit of confusion as we were waiting outside the airport at night, but once he arrived, the transfer was seamless. The Junior Suite was... More

The hotel is very beautiful and calm and the room was the best we stayed in on our trip, especially the aircon which is a god send in the heat of Leon. The breakfast was very good especially the coffee! The only downside was the pool area which was a little small and not really set up for relaxing around.... More

I had one night at La Perla last week. It was a very nice room, a quiet hotel with wonderful staff. I would recommend staying here if you want a quiet, clean and beautiful atmosphere with a great location. Leon is filled with culture and I wish I had 2 nights instead of 1, Leon needs more than 2 days... More

A lovely corner of Leon when you need to get away from . . . you know, Leon. Outside it's dusty, hot, vibrant and exciting - inside La Perla it's tranquil and shady and cool. The staff is attentive and our pick up at the Managua airport was as smooth as could be. Aside from the what appears to be... More

My wife and were wandering around and decided to stop here for dinner. Looked like a nice spot, quiet and with nice breeze. Ordered a pasta dish and a corvina both were inedible.Overcooked pasta and a piece of corvina that was so well done I could have used it for a weapon. The bill, after not eating, totaled the bill...

My wife and I have just stayed a couple of nights at La Perla, in one of their Junior Suites. A totally wonderful restored old building, made even more special by the most attentive and engaging staff. The included breakfast is a treat. We highly recommend it as a base for a stay in Leon.

Thank you for your kind comments. As a family owned business we really appreciate your review. We continue to try to improve our operations as even small items count. As an example, our General Manager, George, made a decision that he would use the reception area as his office.... " Close to the customer!" Sincerely, Jim More

The hotel is a tad rundown but in a charming way, the spaces are great, the staff friendly and helpful, and the location is great. We rented two rooms for each of two non-consecutive nights so we saw 4 different rooms, all towards the front of the hotel--facing street and courtyard--and all were good. Courtyard is great for breakfast and... More

During my visit in Leon, I stayed at both the Convento as well as the Perla. Both places are great and can be recommended. For the younger crowd the Perla may be a bit more exciting because it has a very nice bar, restaurant and patio cocktail area smack in the middle of town. The décor throughout the hotel is... More
