We stayed in Room 456 (standard double in the original section, overlooking the river with breakfast included) for a single night.
The bathroom was nice but a bit cramped. The shower (in bath) was fine. Parador's own product range was available and the towels were lovely.
The queen bed was comfortable and the room was warm. It was an atmospheric room with window with wooden shutter that provided 100% block out. The view was on to a pedestrian bridge and river through the trees.
Reception was very friendly.
The breakfast was nice, the usual amount of choice (which is a lot) for a parador.
As the building is a historic monument there are plenty of interesting parts of the building to explore including the cloisters.
The parking around the back of the property was easy to reach and free.
We thought the location was reasonably good, 15 minutes walk to calle ancha and 20 to the cathedral. We would stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hostal de San Marcos is one of the most extraordinary historic hotels on the Old Continent. Construction of the building was begun in the 16th century, together with the bridge across the River Bernesga in the outskirts of León. It was built to house the peninsula's western headquarters for the Military Order of Saint James. The project was financed by King Ferdinand the Catholic. The magnificent hotel is a museum of stately function rooms, with a spectacular cloister and chapter house; spacious, elegant guest rooms; a library; and a wonderful restaurant that offers beautifully prepared traditional cuisine. ... more less
