Hotel Los Balcones De Leon
Ranked #14 of 15 Hotels in Leon
Reviewed 25 February 2013

When in León, I always stay in Los Balcones, upstairs in eiher room 14 or 21. For weeks I have been sitting in the shade outside no. 14 with my computer working - and looking at the Cathedral while the pigeons on the balcony railings were looking back at me. And the sunsets ....

Small rooms, yes, but a very nice hotel that suits me perfectly. restaurant Via Via is only 50 meters away.

Room Tip: 14 or 21. (The shower in 14 has been very hot the last two years. I have asked to get i repaired, b...

Not a great hotel and not a great city. Our room was small and was overlooking the busy main road and was noisy. The restaurant was nothing special. I am surprised at the positive comments from other reviews. We were disappointed with this hotel.

Stayed one night room #2 with aircon US$47, included breakfast, maybe a bit overpriced. Quiet enough, though at 6:30 a.m. I had to tell the typically Nica restaurant staff to turn down TV volume. Reception people nice & helpful (no English spoken). Guarded car parking by friendly security guy, on street in front of hotel. Close to action, museums & churches. They have one computer for guests to use to connect to internet. Also decent WiFi.

There must be 2 Los Balcones hotels in Leon, because the one we stayed at certainly was not as wonderful as other people described it.
A few things to know before you choose this hotel: The rooms are tiny. Once you put your luggage on the floor, you've used up most of your space. The shower is a trickle. There are absolutely no ammenities, such as clothes hangers, tissues, soap, etc.
The staff are completely useless. They are always busy chatting with friends who seem to loiter around the hotel at all times. The breakfast isn't worth the aggravation - go across the street and around the corner to the French bakery. The hotel is also, overpriced for the area. As a comparison I stopped at the Best Western - helpful staff, showed me some rooms, breakfast room, etc., and it was about $15 less than Los Balcones !!
Granted, Los Balcones is historic and has some interesting architecture and furniture, but I prefer a hotel with decent rooms and decent service.
Lastly, better location is on the other side of the Cathederal.

Los Balcones is in a great location. We arrived without a reservation and they were able to fit us in to a nice room with an outside balcony. The balcony door had to be opened to reveal natural light. The decor is very pleasant and our room was clean. A light breakfast was included with the room price.

I've been returning to Hotel Los Balcones since 2009 and the staff have never failed to be helpful, happy and a delight to talk to. The hotel itself is a beautiful old building with rooms around a central open air courtyard - my favourite room looks out over the Cathedral and the rooftops of Leon. Every time I walk through the front door after a long day in the countryside of Nicaragua, it feels like coming home.

The Hotel Los Balcones De Leon is a charming little hotel. The staff was incredibly friendly and efficient. The room was amazingly clean as was the lobby which is well adorned with interesting antiques. It is an excellent spot to spend a few days and I would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Leon.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the frigid aircon but If your budget is tight the hotel stays cool enough that I am sure t...
