In half of a one-time casona, the guesthouse run by one of two elderly sisters is filled with furniture, knick-knacks, and photographs displayed lovingly in break-front armoires and etageres. the rooms on one side of the now divided-in-half casona are well-appointed (but opt for the air-conditioned ones). Pleasant seating arrangement on two sides of the garden courtyard, a breakfast room...

When we arrived by bus to Leon from Managua we had a reservation for 4 nights at La Gordita Hostel. We were surprised when the owner told us that she can not offer us the room with a private bathroom despite the fact that we had prepaid and booked the room through the Hostelworld a couple of weeks in advance....

Rosario has a beautiful home here in Leon and I'm so pleased I was able to stay at her lovely place.

This ia lovely place. Nice authentic and catholic decoration. Comfortable rooms. Small very beautiful garden with seats. Run by an older very friendly lady. You get keys for the front door, so if you are late it is not necessary to wake her up. Close to the center, only 5 minutes walking. Laundry nearby.

This is a really lovely place to stay in Leon, it's quiet with a beautiful little garden to sit in but you are still really close to the city centre. The owner is a really helpful lady who gave us lots of information about Leon and also found out information for us when she didn't have answers to our queries....

I loved the location here! It's not along the streets where most other hostels are, so it's much quieter. It's only just a five or ten minute walk down to the cathedral and there are so many other sites nearby. Plus you can see more of the residential spaces nearby so you can interact with the locals more. Rosario runs...

A gem close to the city center, with a friendly and helpful owner, amazing garden and very nice rooms. You feel like back in colonial times when you relax after a busy day sitting in a chair and smoking cigar.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first thing you may notice about the guesthouse is that it is a historic colonial house located in Leon, Nicaragua. The guesthouse gives off a homey and inviting atmosphere that distinguishes it from other impersonal hotels and hostels you may be familiar with. The magic of this place is its well preserved Spanish cultural heritage which is ever present in its architecture and decor. The Casona Colonial Guesthouse is the perfect guesthouse for those who want to be at home even when they are far from home. This place is for those looking for the rich warmth of a home they know well, where they feel welcome and wanted. It is for those who want to immerse themselves into the history of Leon in a small way by spending a few nights under our roof and our care. Even the furniture housed here is antique, characterizing the old style that people who have lived in Leon for many years remember. The guesthouse is also for those who have a desire for and a little adventure. When you enter this colonial mansion, you will not be greeted by an impersonal and bland registration desk but rather you are very likely to receive the warm smile of the owner and her welcome. In place of the registration desk, your first impression will be of the two beautiful gardens located in the center of the guesthouse. The Casona Colonial Guesthouse is located a half block from the San Juan park and a short walk from excellent restaurants and the center of town, which is where the historic Cathedral of Leon sits. Wikipedia notes that the Cathedral is a significantly important and historic landmark in Nicaragua. The Cathedral was awarded World Heritage Site status with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). So join us! Leon, Nicaragua waits for you and we have a room reserved just for you at the Casona Colonial Guesthouse! ... more   less
