We have been guests at La Perla several times in the past few years, and each stay has been delightful on all counts. The courtyard is an oasis from the heat and bustle of the street, and the staff has always been helpful and accommodating. The mojitos are the best in town, and the fresh corvina is a wonderful treat... More

The stay was good. The hotel was in the middle of Leon. the rooms were nice. however, when I checked out of the first room the bill was $117 USD (with all taxes and fees)and the clerk asked me for 3,600 cords which is obviously more than $117! That kind of ruined my whole experience as I felt like I... More

We visited La Perla whilst on honeymoon - one night as part of our trek across Central America. This is a colonial style hotel which is well located just a 5 minute walk from the Central Square. We had the presidential suite which is on the front of the hotel and quite noisy as it is adjacent to the main... More

Thanks for your review. Our rack rate for one person is $90; the lowest in Leon, for a room with a queen size bed. We also opened 8 new rooms that are with King size beds and designed to be quieter. The hotel is 150 years old and we totally restored this beautiful structure and continue to Improve and maintain... More

What a disappointment. The hotel is beautiful but it is past its prime. The public areas were lovely. The small bedrooms were partitioned from the original grand house salons. Our room was small and windowless. It was carpeted with a tired dirty rug. The shower and air conditioning were good. If we hadn't needed 2 separate beds we may have... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review. The hotel is 150 years old and was the first hotel to be restored with the assistance of the Nicaragua Historical group. A few rooms do not have windows as we were not allowed to change the original design. Some guest prefer these rooms as the walls are over one foot... More

La Perla is fundamentally a nice property in a very interesting city. In general, the hotel staff was very helpful and graciously arranged for changing money and also obtained a local driver to take us to area attractions. At the same time, we found that the safes in our rooms did not work. We had to secure valuables in the... More

Have correct an issue in the kitchen as we had a new staff and did not properly train them on ordering fish and shrimp. We try to source directly from the fisherman within 20 miles of the hotel, but I failed to communicate a backup as sometimes the weather prevents the local fisherman from going out to sea..

We went on vacation never being to Nicaragua before. Just searched the web and found what looked like a very fine hotel in the middle of Leon.

As soon as we pulled up I knew it would be special. We were greeted by Milton at reception, who checked us in and made sure we were comfortable. There was a problem with the safety deposit box in the room and he fixed it on the spot. Later on he also arranged transportation for us to Managua. Our room... More

The hotel is in a beautifully restored colonial building close to many restaurants, the main plaza and other areas of interest. It could be so much more but is very neglected in upkeep and the rooms are tired and very dated. The public areas, exterior of the hotel are all fine - it is just the rooms that are neglected....
