“Central Location, Clean Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

If you're looking for basic, clean accommodations with A/C in a central location, then Hotel Austria is the spot for you. I was there in December 2012 w/my husband and were quite content with the hotel. From what we saw, the average guests at the hotel were 40+, some with children - -definitely not a place for 20 somethings.

Pros:
- Breakfast was included in the nightly rate
- Security guard at front entrance
- Courteous staff
- Quaint little courtyard

I just can’t thank the hotel staff enough! Everybody at the reception desk were so endlessly patient, friendly and helpful. I asked numerous questions and always received the response I was looking for, whether it was recommendation for a restaurant, drawing directions on a map, suggestion on how to arrange volcano boarding tour, or money exchange. Indeed it was an exceptional customer service experience.

My room was pretty and spotless. Breakfast included – more than sufficient (there are several types of breakfast offered, including Nicaraguan, with delicious rice and beans), restaurant service has been always impeccable. Wi-Fi was almost uninterrupted everywhere in the hotel, including a room itself.

The hotel is very close to the gorgeous Cathedral, many restaurants and bars, little artisanal street market and Kaman art gallery. Everything is quite close in Leon, but if you get tired or get lost exploring its pretty streets, you can be sure that within 30 sec. you will see a taxi that will get you anywhere in the city for 20 cordobas (less than one dollar).

I can definitely and responsibly recommend this hotel to anybody who is looking for nice safe stay in Leon.

Room Tip: If i knew, i would ask for a room on a second level as there was a pretty bench outside where i coul...

We had a great time in Leon. Lots to see and do in the area. The hotel itself is basic but has everything you need (air cond, hot water, wifi) and is very secure. The staff were helpful in organizing a tour to cerro negro and getting transport for a day trip to penitas. The breakfast here was the least inspiring of all the places we stayed in Nicaragua, but included. $65 per night.

Hotel Austria was the first place I stayed when visiting Leon, Nicaragua. That was 12 years ago. Now I own a place on the beach, but I still return because of the fond memories of the first visit. The rooms are very nice and clean. The restaurant in the hotel is exceptionally good and fairly priced. Peter the owner will help you with all your needs. I still come back to have breakfast,lunch, an Dinner when in Leon.

Room Tip: I checked swimming pool by mistake. When I stayed there was no pool.

I recently traveled here with my family and stayed a couple of nights. The hotel is very clean and very well maintained. The rooms are cleaned daily and the staff was very helpful when needed. The food in the restaurant is excellent, especially the Nicaraguan breakfast, and the there is never a long wait to receive your order. I highly recommend this Hotel when visiting Leon.

We took our group to this hotel for a nine-night stay. Everything about it was great. Starting with the easy reservation (online), the prompt response and the great front desk staff. The service in the restaurant was always quick and the food was good with good portions. The rooms were very clean and we always felt safe and secure. The car was safely guarded in the secure parking area. We didn't find anything negative about our experience. Don't be surprised when you take a look at the web site (and the menu;s in the restaurant) and find them in English, Spanish and German. The location is very near the central square. A large hospital is next door, so we worried a little about traffic and noise, but it turned out to be no issue at all.

Room Tip: All the rooms are large enough to be comfortable. The "family" room can accommodate 4 or...

I go to Leon, Nicaragua about every 2 years and I have been in many of the hotels in that city. Now, every time I go, I stay in Hotel Austria for the price is an excellent hotel, centrally located, clean, staff very nice, friendly and helpful, safe, guarded garage, good wireless internet, food average. The only draw back a little noisy because located in a busy street. This hotel is hard to beat
