Had trouble finding Pension Blanca as our new satnav had absolutely no clue about the one way systems in Leon. Good to get directions beforehand as it is possible to pull up right outside to unload. Blanca is great, really helpful, told us where to park for free (a mere 5 mins walk away), gave us a map on arrival and talked us through all the sights to cram in with only one full day to see Leon. The room was fine, clean, bathroom very tiny but had all the facilities. The common room was a useful resource and was also the place for breakfast, a help-yourself affair with everything laid out in the kitchen. Breakfast was basic; cereal, bread, jam, coffee/teas/chocolate and we would have liked some local ham/cheeses, but maybe we had been spoilt by the amazing value breakfast at our previous hotel in Gijon. As a coeliac, I was delighted that Blanca provided gluten-free cereal and bread. The kitchen is available for guest use throughout the day. Highly recommended as a budget B&B in Leon - really convenient for all the main attractions and all within walking distance. Leon really grew on us and we wished we had booked an extra day - it's a lively, vibrant city which felt safe and easy to navigate by day, but it really came alive at night when it seemed the whole population took to the streets to promenade and gather in the numerous bars and restaurants that line the streets. The old quarter is particularly fine to wander around as it's largely pedestrianised, and the jewel in the crown is the magnificent gothic cathedral. Pension Blanca and Leon are both well worth a visit.
