Guesthouse El Nancite
Ranked #3 of 39 Leon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 December 2017 via mobile

This is a great place to escape from the chaos in Leon. John is a really nice guy and super helpful. The breakfast was just perfect. Rooms look good and cozy. The only thing we didn’t really like was the shower, it is electricity driven to get hot, seemed really dangerous to us.

Rise up Surf and Yoga camp recommended El Nancite as a halfway stopover and they were bang on. Two senior citizen travellers were well looked after from the meet at the airport, to the room change upon arrival ( moved upstairs with an extra fan and avoided aircon) to the great breakfasts and conversation with John and other guests, the central location and even the morning roosters. Leon met expectations and El Nancite fits right in.

This place was a true oasis in the middle of Leon. The owner, John, is truly a wonderful and interesting host. Upon arrival we were given the choice of room upgrades for a very small additional fee, which we gladly accepted as the rooms were much bigger, airy, and had a private balcony and garden view. John took it upon himself to ask us what time we would need breakfast and made us delicious breakfasts every day during our stay. He was very informational and kind and is a very interesting and hospitable host. The hotel is minutes away from the center of Leon, yet feels so peaceful and welcoming. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone staying in Leon!!!!

Quiet and welcoming place with friendly and helpfull owners, spacy rooms, good coffee , and a lush garden to relax!
El Nancite is close by the main square and you can park your car in front of the place.

Room Tip: the rooms at the back are more quiet

We really enjoyed our stay here - we had the room pictured here and we loved the decor and space. The garden was also nice to relax in after exploring the city. John kindly arranged us a taxi from the airport and that made our arrival swift and easy!

The included breakfast was freshly prepared each morning and came with the most amazing fresh juice and great coffee.

It was also useful to be able to store drinks in the kitchen fridge as Leon is very hot in March!

I didn't realise they had rooms with AC so if I returned I would ask for one as we found the ceiling fan wasn't enough to cool the room at night (it was extremely hot in Leon during our stay). Perhaps a floor fan would be more effective?

As stated in other reviews the wifi is switched off when not in use but the router is in the lobby so you can just turn it on when needed.

Leon is small so it was an easy walk to all the main attractions from the B&B.

I would highly recommend this place!
