“Nice little hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Hotels in Febuary are difficult to get a number days in a row. Breakfast came with the room and was adaquate for the day. Rooms are not large but for one person all is good. For two people it would be easy to walk into each other. The hotel staff was good. I was even able to purchase a box of good cigars from one of the staff. I lost my leather coat and in a few days I asked one of the staff and his answer was "well yes it is back here in another room". Courious.

Room Tip: Pick downstairs the last room on the right hand side.

I selected this hotel for our stay in Leon based off of Trip Advisor reviews. The location was great - a few blocks from the main square. We were put off by a few issues: we had cockroaches and mouse feces in our room. Cockroaches happen, I get it, I lived in Honduras for years. Mouse poop should be easier to get rid of. Our room had no outside window and it was pretty darn musty. I felt like for the price, we should have been getting a better quality hotel. What we got was a 2 star hotel and I was expecting a solid 3 star hotel at $50 a night - cleanliness was the big issue here. And the staff wasn't overly friendly even though we speak fluent Spanish and were super nice. We ended up eating breakfasts at Libulela Coffee Shop even though the breakfast was included in the room rate because the food was mediocre. Sorry, guys! I have to be honest.

Great breakfast included...scrambled egg, pancakes and syrup, tea, juice, jam,
toast etc....surrounded by the jungle ferns etc in the lovely courtyard. From the
rooftop lookout we are ringed by old churches and further afield by volcanoes -
especially San Cristobal sending even bigger billowing clouds of ash into
the sky and blotting out the early morning sun.
Rooms are bright and clean, the owner - an elderly chap who lives out the back takes an interest in everyone. Very friendly helpful reception staff.
Location is fine - can walk in all directions to explore the town.

We had a wonderful stay here. Friendly staff, clean rooms, relaxed setting, nice AC, decent hot water, good breakfast, wonderful courtyard, and great rooftop terrace. We liked that there were Nicaraguans staying there, not just all westerners.

Stayed here for 3 nights towards the end of my trip in Nicaragua & really liked the place.
Small cosy but comfortable room with good A/C & plenty hot water. Good breakfast (esp if you get pancakes!).
Fab view from the rooftop terrace to admire the distant volcanoes or sunset.
In a quiet street but a short walk from the cathedral & bars/restaurants.
Lovely airy courtyard to relax in with comfy rocking chairs.

Once we’d worked out where this place was (once you’ve found it you wonder why you couldn’t find it first time!) you get transported into a really nice, friendly and relaxed little place with a nice courtyard where you get a nice simple breakfast. The room was very adequate, not amazing but certainly nothing wrong with it.
