The hotel looks like a museum from outside. But as you enter, it is really majestic. The rooms are nice and comfortable- good sized with nice accessories. Breakfast was really sumptuous too. We could not spend much time but what we saw was lovely. Grat location in the center of town. Wonderful Wi-Fi and complimentary. Rooms are at the back...

I am a bit schizophrenic about this Parador and have reviewed dining separately with 5 stars. The old/public parts of the building is stunning, - cloisters, adjoining church, great open spaces etc. And the staff were very friendly and helpful apart from miserable and sneering bar staff. Our room, decent size - but how it could have done with a...

We had been in the bar on a previous trip to Leon and were keen to stay at the Parador as the building is stunning and historic. Got a very good B&B deal for a one night stay on the way to Santiago. Breakfast was excellent, lots of variety and high quality too. Dinner was a bit expensive and we...

We stayed here for two nights. Its listed as "5 Star" however I am not sure it is at that standard. The rooms, although large and comfortable, are a little tired and could do with refurbishment. If staying please check out the cloisters on the second floor up the stairs for a bit of a history tour and view of...

This "5-star" hotel is with a doubt the best and unique hotel in Spain. The building is truly impressive - considering that in past decades it has been a military barracks, a prison and a hospital and now hotel. It will soon be closing for a three-year renovation. The services and food are outstanding. The concierge is most helpful.

The imposing facade of the parador, taking up one entire side of a large square, sets the scene. We had an amazing room in the old part, in the tower near the diver, with soaring windows and a generous sized room. It could do with redecoration but this did not detract from the experience. the chapel is wonderful and the...

This is a beautiful building and extremely huge. It is beautifully decorated in the Spanish old style. We had booked a superior but we were upgraded to a junior suite. How comfortable to have a separate lounge/seating area. It would obviously double up as a further bedroom for a family of 4. The only problem was the distance to walk...

Great and wonderful facade. Has a grand feel about it. Did not see the modern extension. Staff helpful. Food fantastic. Watch those little extra charges that crop up.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hostal de San Marcos is one of the most extraordinary historic hotels on the Old Continent. Construction of the building was begun in the 16th century, together with the bridge across the River Bernesga in the outskirts of León. It was built to house the peninsula's western headquarters for the Military Order of Saint James. The project was financed by King Ferdinand the Catholic. The magnificent hotel is a museum of stately function rooms, with a spectacular cloister and chapter house; spacious, elegant guest rooms; a library; and a wonderful restaurant that offers beautifully prepared traditional cuisine. ... more   less
