Located in the beautiful city of Leon, in the urban heart of the city, surrounded by many interesting places such as Booties House, the Church of San Marcelo, the Palace of Guzman and current Leon County Council or the lovely, Cid lush park. This is where you'll find the Hotel Sercotel Alfonso V, a magnificent and luxurious hotel with modern design in an important commercial and financial location, surrounded by many local dining and entertainment options and only 7km from Leon Airport.
Leon, whenever I'm in the vicinity I stay at this Hotel. It's in the most central area but it's still quiet as it's in a pedestrian area in the same street that leads to the Plaza de la Cathedral, Leon Cathedral is 100 meters. The hotel has parking, the staff is very friendly. A great Spa included in the price. Free Wifi Next to the hotel and part of the complex is a winery that offers quality caps and towards the back there's the dining room that serves good food. The value for money is perfect.
My partner and I decided to go to Leon for Easter weekend. The problem was that we brought our dog, and most hotels and hostels wouldn't accept him. However, we found this hotel, with a perfect location, 5 minutes from the cathedral. You can stay with your pet for a surcharge of 10 euros. The room we were given was on the third floor and the truth is that despite the bustle of the street we did not hear anything from outside. However, the worst thing thing about this hotel is that the walls are paper-thin, so we could always hear everything happening in the next room! The hotel staff were very friendly, and the price isn't that cheap, but you pay for the location.
It was a pleasure staying at Purple Dog in the heart of León, just 1 minute from the cathedral, a pedestrian street that divides the Barrio Humedo and Barrio Romantico. Unbeatable situation. Rocio, the owner, tells you how to get there, and where to park. We went in October, which was a delight. Broad, high, modern ceilings, practical and spotless. The stainless steel kitchen gives a clean feel. Equipped with everything you might need. Upon arrival you will find what you need for your breakfast the next day. Milk, coffee, oranges, strawberries, butter, jam, sugar, pastries and tea; all fresh.
It also has a toaster, juicer and Nespresso machine. The bathroom is impeccably clean, top marks for the shower. The bed 2 x 2, with very comfortable mattress and two different pillows to choose from; good rest is assured. Although you're in a very noisy street, everything disappears when you close the windows, great soundproofing. Also with Air conditioning and heating and a stylish and practical lounge area. It does not lack detail. Above all, thanks to Rocio for her kindness and availability 24 hours a day, to make the stay of its guests satisfactory. Thanks For everything.
This adjoins the Basilica of San Isidoro, and is an integral part of it which has been renovated to enable it for this purpose. The house has a reception, conference room, restaurant, a small chapel,and simple rooms with bathroom, TV and telephone. It's purpose built to be a place of meditation, relaxation and rest.
My stay at this hotel was very interesting, in the center of Leon, I visited all the local areas and some of the places further out of the centre as well. The quality accommodation, good service, good rooms (mine was like a small suite with entrance) but stopped short at the hotel, I went, the two days I was there to get to know the city. The first-Leonese cuisine, 10 out of 10 and very polite and helpful people.
Hotel A is a charming and very well located hotel next to the cathedral. It has great rooms with modern bathrooms that are comfortable. The balconies of the rooms overlook parts of the wall, and the cathedral is lit up at night. The staff are friendly and helpful. The truth is that our stay was excellent. It is also only 2 minutes walk from the old town, which is great for tapas and wine. Perfect!
Located behind the cathedral, near the Húmedo neighbourhood (place to go for wine or cocktails), this is a new hotel opened in 2006. There are rooms for business meetings, events and weddings. The restaurant is good and nice, with good food. From the terrace of the third floor, you can see the cathedral.
Como en Casa is the first Hostel in León. A place where the maximum priority is to make you feel "at home". We are one of the most emblematic buildings of the city, at the gates of the busy Barrio Húmedo.
Albany Hostel is located right next to León cathedral. It has 19 rooms which are distributed among 3 floors. All rooms have a bathroom, telephone, plasma TV and minibar. They are spacious, bright (if possible ask if there are any rooms with a view of the cathedral), modern and comfortable for travellers. As great as it's location is, the price is even better. In high season a double room costs 67 €. In the reception floor there is a restaurant and leaving the hostel, a few meters from the Cathedral, there is a cafe for breakfast with sweet and savoury pastries which are very good. Highly recommended, if you want to go to Albany, book early, because it is almost always full!
A B & B in the center of León, it's different from the typical guesthouses with a modern decor and updated amenities such as wi-fi internet access. It's a typical resting place for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago, and its owner is a source of reliable information on Lion, its cuisine and nightlife.
Due to a serious problem with my house, I had to move out temporarily to allow urgent work to be done. I decided to rent an apartment for a few days, and found these: there aren't many options in Leon, but I knew about these apartments, managed by the Hotel Puerta de Leon. They have several apartments for rent in different buildings in the city but, as they were all full, I was offered the chance to stay in a brand-new building. It stands on Avenida Alvaro Lopez Nuñez, next to the Colegio de los Maristas and the Arco de la Carcel.
It's a new construction, and of the five apartments here, only two were furnished and ready for guests when I stayed. In fact, they had to bring me a couple of blankets and some blankets, and the heating had never benen turned on before! It really was fantastic: a bedroom with two beds pushed together and a spacious cupboard, a bathroom with bath, a spacious living room with a sofa and a huge flat-screen TV, and a dining table with four chairs. The living room has a door leading to a small fully equipped kitchen with fridge, washing machine and microwave with grill (since there is no oven). There are cutlery, pans, glasses, cups, sheets, towels, etc, but there aren't a lot of any of them.
There is central heating, radiators, and a thermostat to regulate the room temperature. The manager is a real star, and gave me a lot of help, as these apartments really are brand new. Payment is made in advance (in my case, 50 € + VAT each day, but there's enough space for 2 people), and a deposit of 200 €. The minimum stay is one week, and the apartment is cleaned twice a week (the sheets are changed once a week). Anyway, I liked it. Ideal for extended stays, a 10 minute walk from the city center (Plaza de Santo Domingo).
