“very comfortable stay in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

We spent 4 nights there during "Semana Santa", or Holy Week. We loved the beautifully renovated hotel, the staff was all nice, and having the swimming pool was fantastic, as Leon is VERY hot. (The pool could have been a touch cleaner though.)

The rooms with just one bed in them are all really great. However, since we were traveling 2 adults and 2 kids, we had to take a room with 2 double beds, and unfortunately, all of those rooms are windowless! This was excruciating when the electricity went out one night, as the hotel does not have a back up generator, so we were in a hot, windowless room without a/c or even a fan for a few hours, until the a/c came back on. It doesn't seem like the power must go off that often in Nicaragua.
The double rooms are also a bit on the small side for having two beds in them.

However, for the price - $111/night including taxes and breakfast, we thought it was a good value, and would certainly stay here again. The other fancy, renovated colonial hotel in town, El COnvento, does not have a pool, and we really enjoyed using the pool at La Perla.

Room Tip: the best rooms have just one bed

was there in feb. for one night and glad I choose this hotel. very clean, stately and grand colonial hotel. Marvelous job in renovation. Stayed on a second floor room (no windows) but was very quiet. Small but charming pool and great breakfast. Felt like a king ( along its lions) and my friend won $500 us (10,000 cords) at the casino just in front of hotel ( managed by same owners) . you must visit the roof top of the cathedral..beautiful vies of the city and surrounding volcanoes. Would stay again at this hotel if ever I would go back to Leon...

My stay was just great. Beautifully restored old mansion,with modern appointments. Great staff,many spoke English or if not would instantly get a colleague who did. Security was everywhere. No request was too much trouble. Rides to the beach provided at my convenience. Proprietor was there overseeing all operations. Food in restaurant was delicious,ate dinner there 3 nights of my 4 night stay. Can't believe that this 5 star gem was less than $100 a night. I'm planning a return visit with friends.

Room Tip: Only 15 rooms so ask to see room as you do in EU.

As the owner of another restored colonial mansion in Nicaragua (Hotel Spa Granada in Granada), I must compliment the owner of La Perla for the excellent restoration of a beautiful colonial mansion. I had the opportunity to see the building during the restoration and can attest to how well done the work was done, and how architecturally appealing is the final result. I know some guest complain about lack of windows in some rooms (my room had no windows), but I believe that only adds to the authenticity of the restoration - many rooms in colonial houses had no windows and high ceilings as a way of assuring the rooms remained as cool as possible during the heat of the day. Service was excellent and attentive, and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. My personal preference would have been for a larger swimming pool, but it was nice to have the opportunity to refresh in the pool after a day in the heat of Leon.

Exceptional hotel bang in the centre of amazing Leon. The hotel is architecturally stunning. Our room was pretty small and the lovely colonial furniture didn't quite fit in, but the bed was really comfy and everything functioned well. The breakfast was good and the atmosphere was relaxed and quiet. A real gem of a hotel, really highly recommended.

We booked this hotel at the last minute and they only had a room for one of our two nights. We spoke with the manager when we got there and he said he would see what he could do for us on the second night. He was kind enough to give us their presidential suite for the price of a regular room on the second night.

The back courtyard at the hotel is where you want your room. The suite was a much nicer room but it was on the front of the hotel and you could hear too much city noise.

Also, the breakfast was great as well.
