Was in Leon for two nights on a business trip. If you are looking for something authentic and right on the famous Way of St. James then this is clearly the place to stay. The rooms have what you need in a good hotel but still gives you the feeling of being in the monastery. I had room 512 and... More

We arrived in the afternoon from Segovia to a warm welcome and a breathtakingly beautiful Parador in Spanish renaissance style. We headed straight for the old city taking in the Casa de los Guzmanes in renaissance style and the starkly contrasting and surprisingly sensible Casa de Botines designed by Gaudi and now a bank. From there we headed uphill to... More

Excellent as usual for Paradores. Secure parking behind hotel, Access to front of hotel is possible for drop off, but due to the layout I would advise to go straight to car park, (no height restriction, if you are traveling with a larger vehicle), book in then collect luggage from car. Room was a bit chilly, we didn't realise there... More

The beds were good The room and breakfast room were cold. We couldn't make the radiator in our bedroom work. Breakfast the first morning was not brilliant - the staff appeared cold and robotic. The next morning we had a different waitress, and the service was acceptable.

The room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel was magnificent. Lots of history, so interesting. The restaurant and meal were excellent, as was the breakfast. The staff were friendly and attentive. Would definitely stay there again.

Perhaps there are more upscale hotels in Leon but we were darn happy with this one. Extravagant surroundings, free parking, comfortable room, real good breakfast, what more could you expect? Location a bit off center but very workable. Staff a bit formal and not the friendliest but they do their job.

Extraordinary Hotel is just magical. The accommodations are great. The rooms are ample, in need of some TLC. The service was excellent although form a distance ??. The location might be hard to get, but it is well worth it. They gave us parking space to lock up our bicyles and we explored the lovely town until the morning hours.

From convent along El Camino to imposing architectural gem. It was enjoyable to just walk around the buildings and observe the history. The cloister was huge. Our room looked out over an attractive courtyard. The room was relatively large and comfortable.

This is in a lovely old building and is well presented. The room was very comfortable and spacious, but in common with many Spanish hotels did not have any tea/coffee making facilities.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hostal de San Marcos is one of the most extraordinary historic hotels on the Old Continent. Construction of the building was begun in the 16th century, together with the bridge across the River Bernesga in the outskirts of León. It was built to house the peninsula's western headquarters for the Military Order of Saint James. The project was financed by King Ferdinand the Catholic. The magnificent hotel is a museum of stately function rooms, with a spectacular cloister and chapter house; spacious, elegant guest rooms; a library; and a wonderful restaurant that offers beautifully prepared traditional cuisine. ... more   less
