I revently traveled to Leon for work with a team of 12 colleagues for a 3 day assignment. Leon is not one of my typical cities to travel to in Nicaragua, but when i go i usually stay at El Convento, a beautifully restored, colonial building, very quaint. But since there wasn't enough rooms available to accommodate all of us, they suggested we stay at La Recoleccion, a newly built hotel which is a part of their group. Although i wasn't very happy, partly because i love the convent, and partly because i wanted to impress my guests, i looked it up online and it got pretty good reviews; so i made the reservations. Well, i fell in love with it from the moment we arrived. It is a beautiful, colonial-looking new building, right in downtown Leon, with very easy access to the touristy areas and old churches. The rooms are large and very comfortable, tastely decorated. The service, although there's room for improvement, you can see that the front desk and restaurant folks are doing their best to treat you well.
Breakfast, includes in the rate, is plenty good with choice of eggs, fruit and coffee. The restaurant, on the first floor doesn't have a great menu, but the choices they offer are quite good. And very inexpensive! Try the nachos!
All in all, a great experience! La Recoleccion will be my hotel now when in Leon!More
