Recent guest reviews

My wife and I have been members of "Amigos" paradors for over 20 years. We've stayed at paradors throughout Spain. This was our second camino frances experience and the second time we reserved a room at the parador in Leon. Two years ago our room have a wonderful view of the landscaped patio. This year our room faced a parking lot. It was by far the most expensive place we stayed throughout our camino (140 euros). I went to the front desk and complained, and the only response from the agent was "It's complicated". I said as a member of Amigos, I expected a better room. She said she had a room with a nicer view, but this would require me to pay a supplement. she did not attempt to improve or resolve the issue in any other way.

Second time of staying at Parador. Parking is undercover outside at the back. Rooms are in a rather ugly block, but we had great room with balcony overlooking river. Plenty of plugs and powerful shower. Dinner was impressive with lots of waiters. Tour around old building is fascinating.

We stayed here for one night on our ODYSSEYS tour. The hotel is vey elegant, historic and quite interesting. We had one of our nicest tour rooms here because we were put in the new wing which was very modern and comfortable. We had an included tour dinner but it was very ordinary so I would say eat out if possible. A great place to stay.

We arrived here at night so we could only see part of it. Quite a shock when I realised just how amazing it is in the day. It is currently being renovated so there is some covering. My husband and two kids, 8 and 11 stayed in a beautiful suite at the front of the hotel with balcony at the front and the side. It is an honour to stay somewhere that has so much history and is breathtakingly beautiful inside and out. If you stay in the hotel you can walk around the extra parts inside as part of being a guest, upstairs is a window that looks down onto the chapel below. I would love to go back again when the renovation work is finished.

It was a good feeling to stay at this historical building. But there were so many people that it was a difficult to have a drink in the evening and breakfast in the morning. Perhaps there must be more possibilities in such situations.

This Hotel a lovely old monastery many centuries old with heaps of atmosphere. The staff spoke reasonable English but were a little "stiff". It was cold when we were there and the heating didn't come on until quite late. Dinner is late also which is a constant issue for tired peregrinos who need to get up early for a long walk the next day!

A truly magnificent hotel, tranquil surrounding steeped in history. The corridors, hallways and communal areas leave you with a feeling of being emerged in history.The city of Leon is very much worth a visit and a stay here is the icing on the cake.

we arrived in Leon by train and were delighted when the taxi took us up to the front entrance of this magnificent building. Porters took our luggage in and we were shown to our spacious and well furnished rooms. We had asked for a large bed and were not disappointed the accomodation was perfect. Although a little way from the old centre we found the walk through the shops to the cathedral not to much. The position of the parador by the old Roman bridge over which part of the Camino de Santiago runs was historic. We also had a conducted tour around the ancient Parador Monastery which took 1 hour.

What a wonderful way to begin our Camino ride. The monastery was impressive and the staff were so friendly. The room was perfect for 3 people....2 large rooms, one with a pull out. We did not feel crammed in this room at all! It is a bit of a walk into the centre of town but on a a lovely day it was a wonderful walk. We only stayed for one night....wish it was longer

An impressive hotel that is on the main path of the Camino. The downside is that is located about 15 minutes (walking) from the old city, but the hotel makes it worth staying. We enjoyed the room that we had on the courtyard overlooking an incredibly beautiful garden. The breakfast in the morning was very good - a typical european buffet - with a Nespresso espresso machine!
