We spent our first few nights on our honeymoon in Nicaragua in this hotel, very jetlagged and exhausted from the wedding it was a great place to recuperate. The staff were very friendly (once you get over the shock of the armed guard!), beautiful cloister gardens, huge very comfy beds and a great restaurant that served lovely breakfasts (fill up on the delicious fresh juices and fabulous nicaraguan coffee). Great location, though Leon is pretty small, but you might feel a bit intimidated walking around after dark. Free Wifi, very clean, we would highly recommend. Try and get a room that overlooks the gardens/courtyard rather than the otherside of the corridor. Don't be alarmed by the alarm that sounds at 7am and midday in the town which is not warning you about an imminent earthquake. We don't know what it was warning you about, but possibly the start and end of the first part of the school day, as the kids either attend in the morning or afternoon because of a shortage of teachers.
