“Nice but not 4*”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2012

Only stayed here one night while traveling through northern Spain. Big room, very clean. Old bathtub and No hot water!!! Restaurant staff saved the place for me as they were very solicitous and accommodating! Very nice location, easy walking distance to sights in Old City.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

I stayed here for a business trip and found it to be good value for money. The room was ample, clean, with mini-bar, free WiFi which worked well for me, and even complimentary water and fruit on the first night. Staff are friendly and helpful, not so informed about the Spanish train strike however which was not so helpful. It is in a quiet location, near to everything; Leon is a small town so most places are within walking distance or a short taxi ride including the station (high speed trains to Madrid approx. 2.5 hours). Breakfast was very good! I would stay there again.

Excelently located hotel 5 minutes walk from the main square and Barrio Humedo. Service was efficient and pleasant, som items lacking in the room were brought immediately with a smile (so often lacking in Spain). The room was a Club double, clean and very spacious with good views and modern decoration, a work desk with chair as well as 2 easy chairs and a coffee table. Free WiFi is available, ask for a code at check in or you'll have to go back down to pick it up. Excellent bathroom ammeneties (soap, gels etc.).
Not alot of free parking around the hotel but the car park is only 10€ so worthwhile. Getting there was interesting as the hotel is surrounded by a one way system and any small mistake can mean you have to drive around a fair bit to come back to where you were.

This is a great hotel - very reasonably priced for a 4 star - within 10 minutes walk of the centre of Leon. We did have a bit of trouble finding it and the garage is not on the same road. the hotel is surrounded by a one way system. A good landmark is 'El Cortes Ingles' - a large department store - which is opposite the hotel.
In some of the other reviews there is mention of the car park be 'tight' to get into. we have a 4x4 and had no real problem and the car parking spaces are bigger than hotel norm.
A little tip - in the evening take a 'bar crawl'. Every time you buy a drink you get a free tapas. We visited several bars and eat a variety of very tasty dishes.
If we visit Leon again we would go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: We were asked on arrival about what time of room we wanted and ended up with a great room at the fro...

The hotel is located in a very good place and is next to El Corte Inglés Department Store. Breakfast was pretty expensive and the Hotel Parking position was a hell to find. The room was clean and cleaning ladies very eager to clean as well.
If you do not expect something more than a place to sleep at night then go for it.

Good location for both center and train/bus station. Taxi ride to airport about 20 Euro with tip. Some decent restaurants and bars nearby that were not flooded with tourists.

Rooms were clean and staff was friendly and spoke English well.

Complaints:
Wifi would not allow any downloading of e-mails via wireless (ipad/iphone). No problems anywhere else - they used "Kubi" network which requires a 24 hour activation password. Hotel provides but only gets to internet. I think this second layer of security caused some sort of problem with e-mail. Staff in denial on this point. Laptop plugged into network via cable provided worked fine but my wife who had been working the entire trip from her iPad had to go elsewhere to do e-mail.

Corner room NOISY if window open. If Window closed, HOT! A/C seemed to have been disabled.

If you are in Leon on Sunday, EVERYTHING except cafes and a few tourist shops on street to Cathedral is shut down.

The hotel is located some 10 minutes from the old town, 15 to the cathedral. We had a room with the view to the street intersection but actually was quite. Corte Ingles is in front of the hotel as a park. Tha staff was helpfull.
