I was one of a large group of people who stayed at this hotel for a wedding. Overall, I had a wonderful experience. Everyone in our large group was quite content with the hotel.
I found the rooms to be clean. I stayed in a single room for two days and then in a double room for the remainder of my stay. When I arrived, I noticed a bug in my single room but this is expected given it is Central America. When I alerted the front desk of the the problem, they addressed it immediately. The maids did an excellent cleaning job every day.
I found the employees to be very helpful and friendly. Language was a barrier but that is due to my poor Spanish (or lack of Spanish). Their service was very efficient and quick.
The pool was small but it served its purpose. It was kept clean.
The restaurant was excellent. I liked all of the meals that I had there. My understanding is that it is known as the best restaurant in Leon.
The style of the hotel was beautiful. The owners did an excellent job of renovating the colonial mansion into a hotel. I liked looking at the paintings in the restaurant. I liked the choice of statues and decorations.
The location of the hotel was quite central. The cathedrals and tourism attractions were within walking distance.
One of the owners made and effort to speak to all of the guests and I thought that this was quite considerate of him.
Lastly, I would like to comment on the review by a member of a family of four, dated January 5, 2011, who commented on a "middle aged American" and his young companions. My friends and I stayed at this hotel for almost one week and none of us noticed anything out of the ordinary or unusual. I question the stereotypes and assumptions that formed the basis of the reviewer's conclusions. I think posting such allegations, without any foundation or proof and without taking the time to even complain to management during their stay, is frankly irresponsible.
I highly recommend staying at this hotel during one's stay in Leon.
