“Clean rooms, excellent hotel food, nothing to complain about!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for a business trip during the SAPICA conference in April. I read many, many reviews as I had never traveled to Mexico before. I will admit I was a little nervous. The ride from the airport was fine - didn't know they offered a free shuttle as the other reviewer stated! That will save us $30 next time! The front desk was a bit slow and lines were long, but probably due to other conference attendees. The breakfast buffet was pretty awesome and I have eaten at so many places it's hard for me to be impressed by food, but I will say for "hotel food" I was impressed by their quality and selection. It was the highlight of the day! Traditional Mexican fare, and some American food tossed in. Rolls, fresh fruit, coffee too. Waiters were attentive - they don't harass you or ignore you like in the states typically - they bring your food, and buzz around the room clearing, bussing and refilling your glass when they see that it's empty. The bellhop was a sweet young student who spoke good English and directed us of where to go when we left the hotel property. He was friendly and helpful! Everything else here was fine - rooms were CLEAN and comfortable and that's pretty darned good when you're in Leon, Guanajuato! We walked everywhere- to the Poliforum, leather market, park, supermarket, McDonalds (okay we broke down one time during our 5 day stay for a Big Mac!) ;-) All in all good value and good experience!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I had a nice 3 day stay here, after a 20 minute ride from the airport. Airports small but efficient, no problems arriving or leaving.

Room was ok, a view of the city from my 5th floor room, bit aged in the romm, but a magnificent satelite system w/over 400 channels. Comfortable bed and pillows and the BR had all necessary ammenities, hot water wwhen needed, with excellent maid service.

The elevator was a bit slow.
Free business center on the 2nd floor, but 2 of the 4 pc's didn't work & no printer.

Inside pool, I didn't use, but others did , I oberved, throughout the day.

I ate breakfast 2x in the restaurant, $160 pesos, quite good, all-inclusive.

Walked one day, 10 mins away, to the leather center, go north, for incredible, cheaply priced, high quality goods.

The ONE thing that was BAD, was the front desk; no care or concern about anything.Did their jobs ok, but not as much as a smile, except for Luisa, who was excellent, so , if I had to go to the desk, made sure she was there. Management needs to train these folks on customer relations.

Room Tip: Ask for something not facing the avenue, my business companion had a room facing the street on 3rd f...

It was fine. Not much to complain about, but somebody else was paying for it so it's hard for me to be critical. My room had a sliding glass door facing the courtyard, which was excellent.
The buffet breakfast was pretty outstanding for a steam table set up. The more interesting stew/mole kind of dishes were based on large chunks of meat, including one that was pork in morita/crema salsa, which was excellent. So not a lot there for non meat eaters but there was decent fresh fruit and some gringo style breakfast food as well.

The neighborhood to the north of the hotel is not outstanding, unless about 1,000 shoe stores in 10 square blocks is your thing. It's close to the bus station, which was handy for taking a little day trip over to Guanjuato.

The street behind the hotel has been recently renovated with a central bike/walking path, and if one gets on that in the direction of the church spires, one will arrive in the centro historico in a little while.

I was there to play a couple of concerts in the Teatro Bicentenario, which is just a pleasant 10 minute walk away, so for this purpose the hotel is situated ideally.

Room Tip: I was in 101 and I thought it was about as good as it could get.

All the people that worked there were nice he was buffaloed

I am a regular business traveler, and it has been a long time since I did not feel the lack of interest from a staff in a Hotel. It is not jus the hotel has bad design a quality materials that bother me, but it is the fact that when I needed help, or my problem solved, their attitud was "that just the way it is".
If you are coming to Leon, better stay at the Radisson, Fiesta Americana or any other hotel. specilly if you need a fast internet connection: they do not have it, and they do not care...
