We had a private room (small) with private bathroom and airconditioning, which worked good. Good shower, no steaming hot water but this shower temperature was perfect in such a hot city, and the shower was without electricity sparks. The breakfast is very good: fruit, eggs, toasted bread, baked banana, fruit drink and coffee. The furniture (colonial style) and garden create... More

After 10 days in Nicaragua, we finally got a place with hot water, perfect air-con, very safe and with the best staff to provide a very good service. Breakfast is also great. Close to the main attractions but quiet enough to get a good night sleep. Nothing to complain about, fully recommend it.

Hotel location is very central and around "Backpackers' street" with restaurants, laundry, banks etc. The room was very small - not enough to swing a cat around. The window opened towards the corridor, so we had to run the aircon all night. Breakfast was ok. Coffee was pretty bad, but the fresh fruit made up for it. The service was... More

Nice spot in Leon. Older colonial hotel. Lots of art on walls. I think we paid $50/night. Enjoyed the breakfast. We typically find concierge service is better at hostels, so we used Bigfoot for transportation and airport shuttles to get better deals. Quetzaltrekkers is an Amazing nonprofit nearby that does volcano surfing. Check them out but make sure you can... More

Hotel Real is a great choice for a stay in Leon. Its central location is convenient when you need a few minutes out of the scorching heat (without eating into your itinerary) and at $45, very reasonably priced.
