We have stayed in Las Mercedes in Managua many times and decided to try Las Mercedes in Leon on our recent visit to the northwest of Nicaragua.
The property is a half-block from the Cathedral and in the enter of the UNAN university area. A number of restaurants are nearby and the streets are filled with people and lively. The central market area and the main square of the city are about a block away. A couple of interesting galleries are within easy walking distance.
The rooms are quite small but neat and nicely maintained as is the case in the Las Mercedes, Managua property. Our room, on the second floor, had a window that looked into the interior courtyard.
Some may find the rooms unsuitably small but the rates and convenient location more than offset this issue for us. The hotel rates include free Wi-Fi for guests, a flat-panel television in the room and a quite good breakfast with cooked-to-order eggs, toast and the ubiquitous Gallo Pinto.
At 7:00 AM, we leaped to our window thinking that perhaps the end had come. The hotel is next to a fire station that sounds its siren each morning at 7:00. It's loud. Other than this noisy intrusion, our room was quiet.
The property includes a small parking area accessible through a gated entrance on a street around the corner from the hotel entrance. This was handy for us because we were driving our own vehicle but navigating Leon's narrow streets and finding the parking entrance is not for the faint of heart.
The staff was cheerful and helpful including giving us access to the parking area. The staff can communicate in English for the most part.
We found the property to be a good value for the money.
