One of our best hotel experiences ever (and we travel a LOT). Our large room overlooked an elegant courtyard with a fountain and two marble lions, where we also had a good breakfast every morning, including coffee grown on the American owners’ coffee plantation. Both hotel and coffee are clearly labors of love. My architect husband was impressed with the quality of the restoration, and the hotel is filled with local art and pottery, part of the owners’ effort to support the local community. The hotel location was exactly right for Leon, a block or two away from the main square. The restaurant was great, the best food we had in the country. The staff were unfailingly helpful and endearing. And having a glass of wine in the small bar every night was like going to a better than average cocktail party, where the other guests might be a doctor doing a Gates Foundation project, a graduate student taking a break from oral history interviews, or any of a host of local friends (you become one immediately) of owner and affable host Jim Petersen.
