This very special hotel in a square in the Romantic Quarter in the heart of León, just a short walk to the magnificent Cathedral, is full of history and art.

Forming part of the outstanding 11th century complex of the Real Colegiata de San Isidoro de Le?n and the Panteon de Los Reyes with its amazingly vivid Romanesque frescos, amongst the best preserved anywhere, the hotel was at one time a monastery. The monastery also houses the Caliz de Doña Urraca, thought by leading historians to be the authentic Holy Grail.

A living monument yet with modern touches, as you wander through its cloisters you will feel the spirituality which has reigned over the years. The hotel is quiet and nicely austere, but comfortable and light and well equipped for the modern world. Yet, stepping out onto the Roman walls at the back, the past will not evade you.

The very friendly and helpful staff will make sure you are well looked after and a guided visit of the building will ensure your stay is a memorable one.

Special note: At 10.15 each day there is a tour of the Colegiata including the Royal Panteon and Roman Walls. Visit lasts about an hour and is not to be missed (and you get a 20% discount!).
