The Hotel Monte Leon, near the beautiful Plaza Principal has been recently completed following a complete refurbishment of the property. All new flooring, walls, furnishings, and bathrooms bring this property up to near-US quality and are certainly above-average for your typical hotel in most Mexican towns. This is not a resort-style accommodation, but is a good deal for a reasonable price near a very scenic area of Leon, Guanajuato. Lack of a restaurant is not a problem with a good assortment of options around the Plaza Principal. The staff is very courteous but most have limited English skills, so patience will be necessary.
The beds are new but the mattresses are placed on a frame without the benefit of box springs, resulting in an extra-firm mattress. New flat-screen TVs with cable access are a nice touch if you watch much TV. The hotel is located on a busy street so if you want a more quiet room ask for one at the rear of the property. The hotel has reliable Wi-Fi available at no cost.
During our stay, we encountered some problems with rain coming under the door during a rather unusual heavy downpour. On only one morning was hot water not available. The rest of the time, hot water was in abundance, which is a feature not always guaranteed at some locations in Mexico.
Within about a 45-minute drive is the beautiful town of Guanajuato with plenty of things to see and do for a local sight-seeing outing. Be sure to take the funicular to the top of the hill with the large statue of a local hero, El Pipila, for the best view of the city.
Overall, the Hotel Monte Leon is a good bargain with reasonable cost and better-than-average accommodations.
