In a central location next to San Francisco’s church (one of many, many in the city), Hotel El Convento was the first convent in Leon, and the bedrooms and corridors are filled with antiques that really enhance the traditional feel.
There are 32 spacious guest rooms in total, which surround a large and beautifully landscaped courtyard garden filled with bougainvillea and other flowers, manicured hedges and a central fountain.
The hotel has its own restaurant, El Victoriano, which is one of the nicest in the city, but please note there is no swimming pool at this property.
Why we love it
After a day's exploration of the city, make time to sit in the lovely courtyard gardens watching beautiful humming birds feeding on the many flowers.
