The hotel is very nice. It has a very pretty central garden. The hotel was once a convent- so the decorations tend toward religious- but the rooms were very nice, the Wi-Fi was good and the food was good. The location is close to everything as well. Would recommend it.

My wife and I stayed at this beautifully-restored property with 2 adult friends and our 7-month-old for one night. We wanted somewhere that was centrally located in Leon but would offer a quiet environment with a bit of character. We think we found it with Hotel El Convento, which feels like an oasis as soon as you leave the bustling...

We were two nights at El Convento in early January, and it was a pleasure from beginning to end. Arriving on a typically hot Leon afternoon, by the time we were shown to our room, a waiter arrived with two tall glasses of iced tea, unbidden! We attended a wedding reception at the hotel, and it was a pleasure. All...

We stayed here for five nights and enjoyed every minute of our time here. Our rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Nice shades on the windows, nice bathroom, daily room cleaning. Atmosphere is so peaceful and quiet. Open air buffet breakfasts were delightful overlooking the flower-filled gardens. Staff is very friendly and accomodated our needs. One staff member, Aurelio,...

The quiet rooms that look out on the gardens are restful, spacious and attractive, with comfortable beds. The shower can be tepid and more of a trickle than usual, but it worked for washing a mane of thick hair! Breakfasts were buffet style and satisfactory. Staff were generally friendly and helpful, especially when the best English-speaker was around to interpret....

We loved our stay at this hotel. Rooms: the rooms are quite large, well maintained and clean. All of them are arranged around a beautiful courtyard, ask for one as far away from the dining and reception areas. The air conditioning worked well. We Thought the rooms were wonderful. Food: we only had breakfast here. They had a large variety...

Clean comfortable rooms in a beautiful garden setting of spanish design. An old convent reconstructed following the original design plans. This spanish style building is well laid out with a wonderful central garden court-yard. Rooms were roomy enough and comfortable. Water pressure in the bathroom wasn't all that great and my room's air-conditioning shut down on it's own a couple...

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. The service was very good, especially the house keepers. We had a language barrier but they were always very helpful and we always managed to explain want we needed. All of the staff was friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet was excellent-fried cheese was some of the best we tried on this trip....
