This is the 2nd time I have stayed here at Hotel El Convento. I chose to stay here again because of my familiarity with it. The hotel itself is stunningly manicured and makes you feel like you are in a different world. They did an amazing job. This trip however, for some reason, EVERYTHING was loud. Maybe it is because...

The place is lovely, a converted convent close to the center of town, providing a serene, well manicured and period setting for a hotel stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Despite all this, the restaurant is at best mediocre, trying to be too many things for far too few guests, and the service is oddly cold. There are tons...

A very nice hotel within easy walking distance to downtown activities. Very good food and beautiful gardens to relax and read. The pool was under renovations so we went by taxi to the beach about 20 mins away.

Le Convento was a lovely place to relax in Leon. It's central and right next to the modern art gallery (a must visit). We were welcomed with a refreshing glass of juice and views of the beautiful garden. The room was spotless and had air conditioning which despite been low season was really necessary. We ate dinner there once and...

This review is only for the hotel. The hotel is clean, has a great staff that is super friendly and speaks English, has a security guard in the front and is in a great location walking distance from the Leon market. They have a very cool courtyard, exercise room and my wife purchased some hand made blankets as souvenirs from...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our Nicaraguan holiday earlier this month (July 2015). Our first impressions were favourable: an air of peace and tranquility, dimly lit corridors, artefacts displayed everywhere ..... a stunning central courtyard with a tinkling fountain playing. Very inviting. Our room was a good size with a comfortable looking bed and an...

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about our property. I will follow up your observations about breakfast and the loudness in the room area corridors. Very sad that on top of this noise, you had a noisy neighbor guest. I do have to confirm, about the loud siren in the city, that...

Stepping into the lobby of El Convento is like stepping into another world - out of Leon's heat and noise and into a place of quiet and peace. The hotel is beautiful with a central court that is stunning. You are right near the central park and very close to the art museums. Excellent restaurants are a 5 minute walk...

During my tour of Nicaragua for my goodwill mission for Operation Smile and SOS Children's Villages. This by far is the best location to stay in Leon. It's close to many historic landmarks, breathtaking gardens, museums, lots of scenic photos etc. I felt like I was taken back into time to another Era, but the rooms still had all the...

Great Hotel, perfectly located just 3 blocks away from Central Park, a place where you can relax. Great staff starting from the Bell Buttons, front desk executives, maids and restaurant staff.

When you walk into the lobby, the view of the courtyard is very impressive. It has beautiful flowers, palm trees, and excellently manicured shrubs. The room was spacious, but not very luxurious. I had wifi connection issues the entire time I was there. The breakfast buffet was the best I had on my entire trip. Made-to-order eggs, all kinds of...
