Fabulous building with great history, our stay was let down by confusion over our booking at reception and the fact that we were eventually given keys to a room which had not been made up, two and a half hours later room had still not been prepared. Eventually we were given keys to another room which we were told was an upgrade, it was not. Our second meal, great food, was let down by a very miserable waiter who seemed more concerned about what two young waitresses were doing with their diners rather than his own. In my opinion the young waitresses were doing a better job.

This is an exceptional hotel that somehow has saved the integrity of the original monastery and seemlessly blended it with a modern hotel. It is a nuanced architectural feat. The staff and level of service assist in keeping the past and present alive, creating a timeless ambiance of hospitality and gracious welcoming.

Amazing hotel. Our room was in a contemporary section, which was comfortable but not amazing. However, the main part of the hotel - which all guests have access to - is a medieval castle, complete with foreboding portraits, antique furniture and cloisters. And the breakfast is amazing!

Excellent location in a wonderful setting. Very comfortable hotel. Only problem are the bolster pillows but there are alway square ones available in the wardrobe. Restaurant was excellent and good value for money. Would highly recommend this parador.

This 12th Century building is a magnificent building, with large and impressive rooms. We stayed in a triple aspect room in the original building, in the 'tower', which had wonderful views across the square, the river, and over the city. The room could do with a little updating, but it felt grand and was clean and comfortable.The staff were very helpful, and we were grateful for their help with our cases, as there were several staircases (not least to our room) which had no access to a lift. There is a large free car park, and a daily tour of the building, which was very interesting.

Adter a late arrival a wonderful delicious dinner followed by a comfortable sleep and a gourmet breakfast, all with the usual excellent Parador service in a glorious location. Magic! Be seeing you again very soon!

Once we had found the entrance to this beautiful parador, we were bowled over by how impressive this historic hotel is, and how much of interest is concealed in its walls. We found the staff all friendly and helpful and the food was great (dinner and breakfast). A shame that there was no separate shower in the bathroom.

A vast and impressive building as indeed you would expect. The place breathes history and is quite unique. Go to the cloister's inner courtyard for moments of tranquillity and meditation. The rooms were OK, the breakfast excellent albeit in a huge room without charme. All in all, a must-stay when coming to Léon.

Not a good approach to this hotel from the south - Leon not pretty from this direction. No match for Santiago or Salamanca. It is a class below the Parador at Santiago. Restaurant food and wine not what I would expect at this end of the market. Rooms and staff excellent. Not a great bar area.

We just arrived and we're checked in by an individual who was rude and condescending. Very disappointed. I hope the rest of the staff is more welcoming. Such a disappointment when we had such high expectations after walking into this impressive hotel. I'll update my review if anything changes
