“Very basic hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

Room small windows open into the corridor. With the curtain, room has no sunlight. The lighting is not condusive for reading. A/C is very noisy, not cold enough. Wifi only works well at the reception which is not air conditioned. Breakfast is very basic but acceptable.

Very simple and clean rooms. The staff are very nice and accommodating. The hotel is centrally located right off the main square. My husband and I felt very safe in this area after dark. If you are looking for just a basic place to park yourselves, this is the place!! Room 27 is very quiet!

Room Tip: 27 is quiet!

We wanted to stay here but we are traveling with our dog and sadly, the hotel does not accept pets. That said, the staff here--unprompted--called four hotels asking for us, stopping only when they found one that was both dog-friendly and with on-site parking. When we ended up finding another pet-friendly place a few blocks away, Hotel Austria was generous enough to allow us to park in their secure parking, even though we weren't staying there! They were so helpful and made us feel really supported during a difficult afternoon.

If you're looking for basic, clean accommodations with A/C in a central location, then Hotel Austria is the spot for you. I was there in December 2012 w/my husband and were quite content with the hotel. From what we saw, the average guests at the hotel were 40+, some with children - -definitely not a place for 20 somethings.

Pros:
- Breakfast was included in the nightly rate
- Security guard at front entrance
- Courteous staff
- Quaint little courtyard

I just can’t thank the hotel staff enough! Everybody at the reception desk were so endlessly patient, friendly and helpful. I asked numerous questions and always received the response I was looking for, whether it was recommendation for a restaurant, drawing directions on a map, suggestion on how to arrange volcano boarding tour, or money exchange. Indeed it was an exceptional customer service experience.

My room was pretty and spotless. Breakfast included – more than sufficient (there are several types of breakfast offered, including Nicaraguan, with delicious rice and beans), restaurant service has been always impeccable. Wi-Fi was almost uninterrupted everywhere in the hotel, including a room itself.

The hotel is very close to the gorgeous Cathedral, many restaurants and bars, little artisanal street market and Kaman art gallery. Everything is quite close in Leon, but if you get tired or get lost exploring its pretty streets, you can be sure that within 30 sec. you will see a taxi that will get you anywhere in the city for 20 cordobas (less than one dollar).

I can definitely and responsibly recommend this hotel to anybody who is looking for nice safe stay in Leon.

Room Tip: If i knew, i would ask for a room on a second level as there was a pretty bench outside where i coul...

We had a great time in Leon. Lots to see and do in the area. The hotel itself is basic but has everything you need (air cond, hot water, wifi) and is very secure. The staff were helpful in organizing a tour to cerro negro and getting transport for a day trip to penitas. The breakfast here was the least inspiring of all the places we stayed in Nicaragua, but included. $65 per night.

Hotel Austria was the first place I stayed when visiting Leon, Nicaragua. That was 12 years ago. Now I own a place on the beach, but I still return because of the fond memories of the first visit. The rooms are very nice and clean. The restaurant in the hotel is exceptionally good and fairly priced. Peter the owner will help you with all your needs. I still come back to have breakfast,lunch, an Dinner when in Leon.

Room Tip: I checked swimming pool by mistake. When I stayed there was no pool.
