“Price is Up, Yet Still Has Shower Problems”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

Although the hotel website still shows $35 for a single, their new price sheet in the lobby shows $45. Be forewarned that it is not the bargain it has been in the past. However, it still is a nice place in general.

Good: Quiet if you stay in one of the courtyard rooms. Excellent quality mattresses. Rooms kept clean. Convenient location for getting almost anywhere worth going in town.

Problems: Water flow in shower is barely a trickle--not enough to even start the electrical heating unit that is attached. The a/c units tend to blow directly onto the sleepers. Breakfast is very basic--bread, a pat of butter, and coffee (and most, but not all, mornings a very small bit of jam).

Room Tip: Outside rooms are bigger, but inside rooms are quieter. Think about your preferences.

Good value. Good bed. Warm hospitality. Personally attended by owner. Excellent location: Very close to Leon's attractions, museums, eating places, churches, drugstores, supermarkets... No car is needed ti go around.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Working with the university, I usually do not stay in a hotel in Leon. However, this trip required a hotel stay and I was happy to be at el portal de 1610. The family is so friendly and accommodating even with my extremely limited Spanish. The hotel room was so clean that I wasn't afraid to walk around barefoot. The breakfast was nice and cozy even though we didn't eat much.

The front door is locked and we rang a doorbell to get it which made me feel even more safe--even though I didn't like "bothering" the folks to open the door. The beds were comfortable !!!!

I really highly recommend this hotel.
