This historical hotel in the heart of the magical city of Leon is a true colonial jewel. San Francisco's Convent was the first and most ancient convent in Leon. In the 1830's, religious groups were expelled from Nicaragua, so San Francisco’s Convent became the Intituto Nacional de Occidente. Now it stands completely refurbished in its original state. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, cable TV, hot water, international dial tone, and internet access. There is also 24 hour room service, laundry service, and 24 hour surveillance. Their restaurant, El Victoriano, offers international cuisine. Hotel El Convento is located at the heart of Leon, on the site of the former San Francisco Convent.
