Hotel El Convento
Once home to the historic San Francisco Convent, this lovingly converted building could be one of Nicaragua's most beautiful hotels. There are 31 spacious rooms and suites featuring antique décor, set around a gorgeous traditional interior garden and swimming pool. There's also a fine restaurant with view of the garden and features homemade ice cream from Nicaragua's tropical fruits.
The hotel is located just two blocks from the cathedral and Leon's central park.
