Fantastic place. Beautifully located in the glorious Plaza San Marcos. A wonderful hotel - I will go back as soon as possible!! Lovely restaurant serving fabulous food, served by an excellent waiting staff.

If you manage to capture a room in the old building you feel exceptional. The restaurant has old charm, the service is great and the value for money is given. The bar outside is a recommendation. the inside bar and the breakfast room are not to recommend but breakfast quality is very good.

We were in the new wing of this historical hotel - in a lovely plaza setting - and the room was spacious albeit tired and due for refurbishment, so we gather from another review. But all was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom had already been refitted. The breakfast was superb, parking plentiful and a quite easy stroll to the old part of town and the cathedral with its amazing stained glass - the reason for our visit. There is a self guided historical tour of this rather fabulous historic building although we could not gain access to all of it due apparently to reception not understanding our query.

Delightful reception, amazing facade, wonderful cloisters and a tasteful modern extension housing many bedrooms. The cost, €235 is certainly in keeping with the experience of staying in a parador this impressive. Online rates booked in advance can secure much lower rates (as was confirmed by an Italian from Milan that we spoke to). Wifi very good. Breakfast a real treat and generally a taste of luxury in Leon before we headed back out into the countryside. The cafe served very good ice cream on the terrace as we watched the world go by.

very good parador not too far from the city Leon. Interesting to have a guided tour inside the building. There is a lot to see in Leon. As in all paradores, the breakfast offers a lot of choice and is very good.

Historical location. The building is something to remember. The athmosphire is relaxing and quiet. We reccomend to have dinner in the terrace in Summer. Room are huge and confortale. Nice experience with your partner or you friend.

If you go into a Paradores expecting a Hilton, IHG type chain you will be disappointed. Paradores are uniquely Spanish a little dull, a little dusty and with a perception of age. The latter is because they are all very old. They are not "international" except maybe for breakfast, they are very Spanish. The restaurants are always superb with authentic Spanish style food, not paella or pizza. This one is fabulous, massive ancient rooms and cloisters. Our room overlooked a cloister. The restaurant is excellent and very smart, probably a little more up market than most Paradores. As some people have said the modern extension is tired, yes it is and is being refurbished this year. The ancient part is the what you want to see. If you are touring Spain and want to feel Spanish these are the places to stay. This one is a tourist attraction in itself. Easy stroll to see the cathedral.

An amazing experience since the entrance. The old building, standing since Spanish Catholic Kings, plus the decorating, the service and the food experience give the traveller the incredible wish of coming back asap. Rooms are very well decorated, but following the standard of Esentia classification of Paradores, which means keeping the essential aspects of building and cultures. Breakfast is more a brunch, with some typical Spanish dishes for morning, besides details like a Nature Cava available. Do not miss the historic hotel tour.

We only stayed for one night in this Pardor. It is a very big hotel situated on the main square and there is a museum also attached to it. The hotel is worth exploring particularly the cloister and it was furnished with antiques and paintings. Our room was large with a balcony overlooking a courtyard and was clean and presented. The bathroom had a double sink and a bath and a shower, lots of towels and toiletries. There is a pleasant terrace to have a drink and we did not use the dining room which seemed quite formal but there are lots of places to eat in Leon and although we were only there for one night it was worth leaving the parador and exploring the old part of the city. We had the breakfast which was the usual hot/ cold buffet and they were serving cava too!!! Tea and coffee facilities could be provided in the rooms or one of the public areas particularly after the bar was shut but we did not come4 across this in any of the Parodors we visited.

We found this an exceptional place to stay. With some architectural excellence which the original monastery has been saved and blended in with a modern hotel. This was one of the highlights of our trip. It’s a wonderful building in the heart of Leon with a very short walk to the old town. Entry is through the centre of the long frontage, then into a vast entry hall with an impressive staircase. The double storied cloister area is a cool and calm place and is an excellent place to relax. We had a standard room in the new block, usual layout but very roomy and with two armchairs tables and an additional balcony overlooking the maze garden with very good air conditioning. The restaurant service and food are first class and all the hotel staff offered a great level of service creating a timeless atmosphere of hospitality and gracious living. We had a problem with our hired car and the front desk came to our rescue very quickly. We hope to return some day.
