“A place that you will not want to leave!”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

I cannot possibly praise enough this wonderful Posada in León. Two friends and I were fortunate to spend 3 nights with María Teresa and her family and we were so sad to have to leave at the end! Although we arrived very late at night, we were welcomed as if part of the family and slept soundly all nights in our very comfortable and extremely clean room. We ate a delicious breakfast all 3 mornings and relaxed in the peaceful plant-filled courtyard that looks like a Garden of Eden! On two separate day trips, María Teresa's son, Benito, gave us very fun and informative tours of León and the surrounding areas, Masaya, Granada and of the neighboring volcanoes and I do believe that he is the most knowledgeable expert on Nicaraguan history and landmarks in all of León! Despite just a brief visit to this special place, I am already looking forward to returning to the Posada Fuente Castalia and to the lovely people that live there!

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be of excellent quality!

Amazingly nice and comfortable courtyard, totally unexpected for me. Extremely clean, everything functioned as it should. Some would say it is not in the center, but no need in a town the size of Leon. Only caution is that they do not have hot water, as I am told is the same in most of Nicaragua.

My friend and I chose this B&B because another review said the hostess, Maria, didn't speak English and we wanted to practice our Spanish. We were welcomed with open arms and smiling faces a lot of patience as our languishing Spanish confused staff. Maria made sure that the tour company who booked with was reputable and recommended a great restaurant for us after a long day of travelling from Canada. Posada Fuente Castalia didn't include breakfast but the charge was a mere USD $1.00. Our rooms were comfortable and quiet and were placed around a pretty, central courtyard. Rooms are cheaper if you opt for a fan instead of air-conditioning, but I will mention there was no hot water as this is a deal-breaker for many. This B&B is located a few blocks from the downtown centre of León and so is very quiet. It was a great deal at $25 and I would definitely stay there again. Ask Maria for an omelet made with fresh cilantro from her little garden around the fountain.

We stayed at Posada Fuente Castalia based on one review and its website and were thrilled to find that it surpassed our expectations.
The rooms at the Posada are around a beautiful little courtyard with elegantly decorated common areas. We enjoyed breakfast under an umbrella on a terrace on the way up to our second floor room, which was light and clean and private. The hotel is also in a great location, an easy walk to the centre but quiet and safe.
The highlight of our stay however was the warm welcome given to us by Maria Teresa and her family. They couldn´t have been more helpful and made visiting Leon a real highlight. Highly recommended. Many thanks!

This small guest house was recommended to us by a Bulgarian lady , owner of a hotel very close to Tica Bus station in Managua.
There are not enough words to describe the hospitality of the owners , the clean and commfortable rooms , the cleanest bathroom I have seen so far in my travels .Brillant is the correct word.
We felt like home, we were treated like members of the family.
We had lunch and breakfast and it was delicious.We only spent one night and we wish we had time to stay more.
It is run by a family , all of them so nice people.They did their best to satisfy us.
very close to down town and also important on a very very cheap price.
I would recommend it even to the most difficult customer.
Their e-mail is posadafuentecastalia@gmail.com. If you choose to stay there please remember to say hallo on behalf of the women from Greece.
