Hotel Real
Ranked #4 of 15 Hotels in Leon

Reviewed June 18, 2014

Great place to stay in Central Leon with quiet rooms and a rooftop terrace. Hot breakfast with fruit, juice, and coffee served each morning in the courtyard. Jorge speaks English and was very easy to book rooms with. The ac was a welcome relief from the heat of Leon!
It would be great to see the hotel provide a 5 gallon jug of purified drinking water in the lobby....it is for sale by the bottle, but guests would appreciate it as an amenity. We really appreciated being able to park in front of the hotel....felt very secure.

This hotel is a great value and close to everything. If you need someone that speaks English then this might not be the best hotel for you. Only one person spoke some English. The rooms were clean, staff pleasant, great location and very good breakfast.

The most entertaining aspect was the the turtles that came out every morning at breakfast. I don't think I've ever seen a turtle beg for food, but these do! On the first day we saw four turtles, but by our last day there were six turtles. They loved the papaya and mango. There least favorite food were the fried plantains. The staff doesn't care if you feed the turtles. On the last day they were sitting there with us feeding all

I cannot ask for a better value than this hotel, given its price, great sit-down breakfasts, location, friendly bi'lingual staff, and modern amenities. The hotel, in typical Spanish colonial architectural fashion, has lovely inner courtyards.

Good central location, close to Parque Central. Quiet rooms as facing internal courtyard, good to sleep. Nice breakfast with fresh fruits and very nice service, staff is very helpful. Internet signal very good. Rooms are big enough, sheets clean. Bathrooms need update, hot water is available but water pressure was not the best in our room. No need to pay more money for the room in Leon if you want to stay below 100 USD

It is at correct distance from the Central Square and at the same time in a quiet location. The young owner is a real Hotelier and he does the job with a taste. He spent his time, although he was ready to go, to find us a Hotel at the beach for the week-end and at the last minute.
The breakfast was quite good and with a variety for every day and the ladies at the kitchen always with a smile. We stayed for 3 nights and an extra night when we returned from the beach.
We decided to stay at Hotel Real, rather to go to Managua, on the last night as our flight was at noon and we had enough time to get the bus to Managua and then taxi to the Airport.
An excellent choice, very recommended

Although this beautiful colonial-style hotel was a bit above our usual traveller budget, a bad experience in Managua left us needing time out for cleanliness, tranquility and some 'TLC'. The Hotel Real provided all of these things in spades. The owner is a perfect gentlemen who made us feel that he really wanted us to enjoy our stay; in fact, all of his staff were lovely, too. Really polite and helpful without being intrusive.

We found old churches to explore, agencies for booking trips, restaurants and all we could need within easy walking distance of the hotel. This, combined with the elegant rooms and excellent breakfasts made us conclude that our money was very well spent. I highly recommend that everyone considers staying here, including those who, like us, are on a tight budget. Our room could sleep up to three (queen size bed and a single) and the breakfast is so big that it will keep you going all day.

The Hotel Real was very nice. The garden and antique furnishings were beautiful. Rooms were good with firm beds and the roof was a great place to sunbathe or watch fireworks on New Year's Eve. The breakfast was good and the food changed from day to day. Service was very friendly and pleasant and the setting of the tables in the garden was picturesque.

Room Tip: first floor rooms are easy to access.
