“lovely oasis in the heart of a very busy commercial area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Four of us (2 couples) spent a night at La Estancia, in order to take advantage of a concert, a MetOpera simulcast, and the opportunity to shop in the best outlets in Mexico for leather goods. The staff of the hotel were all extremely gracious. We had executive suite rooms (for $92USD per room), and there were indeed executive level. Two TV's, sitting room + 2 double beds, spacious closets, very spacious & elegant bathroom with separate toilet, sunken bathtub, and easily enough space for two people's toiletries (much more expensive hotels don't always provide this). Very elegant decor as well -- the first wall-to-wall carpet I have EVER seen in Mexico, anywhere! Breakfast is a very generous buffet; excellent food, omelets made to order ($168 Pesos p/p I think). Very convenient to Forum Cultural, too. Highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: executive suite rooms are only a few dollars more; worth it

The hotel is located on a main road, the historic center is nearby as well as shopping malls. Urban transport station opposite the hotel.

The hotel has old furniture and outdated decor. The rooms are small, the bathroom is large but also with very old decor. The bed is fine. Long dark corridors.

I felt a slight smell of sink that followed up the room.

You can find something better, it cost me 850 pesos a night.

Hotel rooms are large but ridiculously outdated, old tv's and appliances. The rooms are dark and musty. The bathrooms are a redeeming feature but also in need of a serious update.
My rooms was on the first floor with no elevator and endless corridors. All the common spaces felt even more outdated, restaurants etc not worth your time or money.
Though the hotel should be renovated it should also remove the lazy and unhelpful staff- not impressed.
There are better options in Leon than this place.

Stayed here 4 nights in Sept 2011 because my company had a corporate rate. The rooms are large and must have been nice 20 years ago. By today's standards the rooms are in need of refreshing. The beds are hard, the bedspread had a dark stain, the furniture is worn and the carpeting in the room is at least 10 years old. My room was on the second floor (no elevator). I ate one breakfast buffet and one supper in the restaurant and have nothing good to say. I did see a lot of locals arrive for Sunday brunch (which I didn't try) so maybe that meal is better. Next door is the hotel NE New Estancia, which looked much newer and nicer. This hotel is next to the leather district which is loaded with shopping opportunities.

i stayed here for three nights with wife and kids, the room is very big with a huge bathroom with tub and plenty space to move in. the staff is very friendly, the food excelent, have parking lot with no extra charge,close to all amenities in town,the only thing to improve is the pool, the water is very cold, need to heat it up.this hotel doesnt belong to any chain,but beleiveme you will get best offer than fiesta americana or holiday inn. tip ,ask for master suite , you could get for just 100 dolars an apartment of the size of any one in manhattan.

I really liked this hotel, it was clean, the people were attentive, and the room was the size of a suite--it came up to $750 pesos per night, and I thought it was a good value. There is the shoe district around the corner, the bus station that will take you to Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende, a bus that runs in the middle of the main drag right in front. It's a good location! The airport is about 20-25 minutes away, and I was charged an average of $160 pesos for the one-way ride. The locals seem to think that next door's "La nueva Estancia" is even nicer (it used to be one hotel, but gossip has it that 2 brothers divided it into two seperate hotels). La Estancia has several little pools that look like would be fun for kids during the summer.
