“One of our favorite hotels in Nicaragua”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This hotel was booked for us through our tour company, Nicaragua Adventures. It was wonderful. The room itslef was big, the bed was comfortable. The porters were very attentive. We even got a welcome drink on arrival. The breakfast was phenomenal!!! The best breakfast we had on our trip. The pool is quiet and secluded. The hotel is central to everything in Leon. It was a wonderful hotel, and we will certainly stay again when we return. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recomend this hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel - a refurbished convent. typical Spanish style. hotel rooms around a beautiful garden. We were a family of 8, ranging from 9 to 89 years. The staff was really terrific,The pool was a bit small but still pleasant. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: all equally good.

Very nice hotel, Rooms are clean and comfortable. Air conditioner worked perfect, nice flat screen TV’s with many U.S. channels. Free breakfast in the morning with your stay. Good laundry service, upon arrival from airport my clothes were a wriggled mess – turned in all of my clothing and they ironed all of my belongings in 1 hr. Very beautiful courtyard in the center, but no pools that I know of in Leon. Only about 2 or 3 blocks from the center of the town and bar section of the city. Great food also for dinner and ice cold Tona’s to wash it down with. Will most likely say here again on my next visit.

The is a beautiful setting , The restaurant tables are well set out with white tablecloths. The menu is well written. I chose grilled salmon with a touch of Asian sauce. When the small fillet, a tail cut arrived, it was hot at one end and tepid the other, the plate contained a mound of pounded yuca or quiquisque smothered in a commercial sweet and sour sauce. The line cook/chef should go to Barcelo or Sushi Nami in Hollywood Miami,to find out what this dish should taste like. And forget the quequisqui, rice or baby boiled potatoes would be fine. Creative but must try harder.

We stayed one night at this beautiful hotel. It is centrally located and the rooms/decor are perfect. The building is a traditional Spanish colonial, adjacent to a church. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The bedding was comfortable and the rooms sparkling clean. The breakfast was first rate in the morning. Overall, couldn't be happier with my experience and will stay here again!

An excellent experience. A staff very willing to work and meet the requirements. Definitely the proximity to the historic center of Leon makes it special. It hosted a corporate event which saw the flexibility and desire to do things the team.

El Convento has a special feeling to it which is obvious as soon as you cross the door. It is very magical. I stayed in the suite which was very spacious and had a huge soft bed. Service was kind and helpful. The patio is beautiful and the pool area very cosy and elegant. Probably the best choice in town.
