After 2 nights in the rainforest we were in dire need of comfortable beds and a bit of pampering. Our mouths dropped as we pulledd up at the old convent gate and looked into the perfectly manicured courtyard which is the focal point for the rooms surrounding it. The corridors are decorated with religious ephemera from the old convent I assume, plus local handicrafts. The beds are just right, the water hot, the rooms large. The lounge area is elegant and tastefully furnished, the breakfast substantial (eggs cooked to order) and the staff friendly. Leon itself is a fascinating place and I strongly recommend a visit.

Spent 2 nights here recently. This restored convent is top notch. A lot of time ,energy and money went into this restoration. Rooms circle a wonderful central garden area. The rooms are fabulous. Clean attractive comfortable. Word has it that the owner is one of the richest men in Nicaragua. It shows. Careful attention to detail. A fabulous breakfast and great on-site restaurant. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Truly a gem. A must stay!

Stayed here for 2 nights on business.

Hotel rooms are excellent!! It's a really nice and clean place. Decent size rooms.

You can find great restaurant options within walking distance of the hotel.

Only downside is that the "Fit Center" they offer is pretty useless, both treadmills were out of service, there were no dumbbells, so no strength training was possible.

I found this hotel just amazing. Historic hotel like this is a little treat in life. Seeing many modern hotels but remembers few. This will old will for sure be remembered.

Nice and welcoming staff, good breakfast and very comfortable room. Wifi an important part in modern people life, spot on. Good connection and speed.

With all the artefacts from past time it was like a small museum with opportunity for a treasure hunt with the camera.

Garden...... well we can not ask for more.

I am happy to recommend this hotel to everybody.

A small minus was an outdated Fitness Centre. Four apparatus and non did really work.

WOW fell in love with this place as soon as we checked in. This used to be an old Catholic Convent and they kept lots of pieces from the convent. There is an alter complete with chair and knee rail. We spent time in the rocking chairs looking at the gardens and birds. The room was comfortable and tasteful decorations. The restaurant was excellent weather inside or under the roof. Just walking around looking at all the art made us appreciate the hotel even more.
