While in Leon, I decided to change hotels last minute. I did some research and then walked around to a few different hotels to get some prices. I was offered a room for about $26 for one night since I was solo. I actually had a friend come and stay with me since I got such a big room (with 3 beds) and it ended up being $33 for the night for the two of us. We thought that breakfast was included with this rate, but after waiting about 20 mintues in the morning the girl told us it wasn't included. This was fine since we had really wanted to go back to the restaurant desayuno around the corner. It would have been nice if she had told us right away though.
We found the hotel to be very secure. They have to open the main gate for you and give you the key to your room, so they control everyone who goes in and out. The inside courtyard is very nice and lush with a few seating areas. Our room was further back and had three beds in it and a very large bathroom. It also had cable tv a fan, and air conditioning, which we didn't need to use. I'm pretty sure we were in room number 4, the rose room which was in the back corner. Being so far back, You didn't hear much of the street noise (which is constant.) The hotel is located about two blocks away from the main square so it is convenient to everything.
When we had arrived they said they weren't sure if the room they promised us the day before would actually be avaliable, but we waited a few hours and the person staying there ended up leaving and we got the room we wanted. They offered us a different room in the hotel, but it seemed musty and not as nice. Be advised that none of the ladies speak any english. I am fairly fluent in spanish and found it especially difficult to communicate with the young girl who took care of most things. You can definitely get by without knowing spanish, but it may be a bit of a struggle. Overall, they were all very helpful and nice. I really enjoyed staying here, especially since it was so inexpensive.
