“Great pool”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2011

The pool and the surrounding terrace were you have breakfast are great. Free wi-fi in certain areas. Breakfast was fine.
Ideal location for a quick taxi ride into the main town which is only a few minutes away.

The rooms are large. One of the rooms we had was fine however the other had no natural light therefore was extremely dark and was next to the main road with lots of lorries thundering past and beeping their horns.

This is a cheap and cheerful hotel which we would never usually recommend however you have to remember you are in Nicaragua and it met our needs at the time very closely.

Room Tip: Stay in a room next to the pool with a window.

Good for business or meetings. Good if you have transportation, or a friend who can pick you up in his car. If for some unknown reason i came to Leon with kids and had a car, , this hotel would be ideal. The distance to town in maybe 3.5 miles..or maybe 2.5, but it's too far to walk. Anyway, walking the direct route nto town will not take you past the most scenic parts of Leon. I personally feel very safe everywhere in Leon, but it would be inappropriate for a woman or women to walk from this hotel into town except in bright daylight.

We set up a business meeting at the hotel for about 30 people, with a presentation and dinner. The Hotel proved very capable and the cost was very reasonable.

Other than that, the pool and the surrounding terrace is the main draw here. The pool is long enough to do laps in, and clean. dinner on the terrace was perfect, the wi-fi was excellent, the tranquillity was a welcome relief from the intensity that can be any central American urban environment.

Nice rooms, quiet. A/C was appropriately powerful, somewhat noisy as is the norm hereabouts. Free WiFi works well. Sheets are thin, pillowcases thin. Beds basic, but comfortable. But remember, you're in Leon, Nicaragua. And the price is quite reasonable.

Room Tip: look for a room by the pool - maybe new sheets?
