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.

This was our arrival point in Nicaragua and Mid-America after a long flight from Europe. Arranged airport pick-up by the owner at reservation and it worked out perfectly! Nice room with lots of space. Clean and safe. The owners are really friendly, helpful and had time to talk to us while preparing our breakfast. Fresh fruits on-site and nice garden....

We arrived at the beautiful El Nancite and were very warmly welcomed by our host (Maria?). We had booked a private bedroom but she very nicely showed us some other rooms that were available. The room was clean and comfortable, and the common areas were beautiful. The breakfast was amazing! Homemade juice and mangoes from the garden. And I very...

I stayed at El Nancite for a full week. The owners John and Ledis have built a beautiful spot right in the heart of Leon, very near the Iglesia de El Calvario. I looked at the smaller first floor rooms and they are very nice, but I was convinced to spend a few dollars more for a large upstairs room...

Upon arrival I loved the beautiful house with the bright and inviting colors. What seems to be a rather small building, develops into a wonderful and spacious guesthouse with a beautiful interior garden. The rooms are well decorated and you feel the love, that's been put into everything by the owners John and Ledys. The personal and warm service including...

Owners John and Ledys make your stay relaxed and comfortable. John makes breakfast with healthy ingredients and great juices. He also provides the most accurate directions! The location is close to everything, on a quiet street. Inside art and flora abound. This was my second stay at El Nancite and I would recommend it to anyone.

We got off the microbes after a long journey and we stepped right into heaven. John and Ledte's hotel is a blast of color of the earth and of the sun. The rooms are comfortable with excellent beds. Homemade breakfast by John each morning. Finally, great coffee. Original paintings by Ledte adorn the walls. Really great and generous people. It...

We had the owner, John, arrange for a taxi for us from San Juan del Sur to Leon as we wanted to get in earlier than the shuttle would get us there. The taxi driver was arrived early & was really nice although the condition of his vehicle was very poor. The seats had no proper backing to them &...

Hello Ashley, Thanks for your positive review, overall. Sorry for the ride, I spoke to the driver after your trip and told him to take his better car the next time, and use the AC. I thought you weren't interested in breakfast, as you never came back to the kitchen to talk to us ever. Did you come through Booking.com?...
