Leon accomadation


New Member
Hi Ivar,
I remember reading a posting for hotels/hostals in Leon near the cathedral but can't find it. We fly into Madrid Sept. 11 and will take train/bus to Leon that day. Can we stay at a hostal if we haven't started walking yet? Other posts suggested the convent. We want to book a spot fairly soon for 4 people. thanks, jayne

My other half recommends the Hotel Paris which is very close to the cathedral, and is on the Camino itself on C/ Ancha. After a day travelling you'll want a nice-ish place to stay before the rigours of walking and refugios start the next morning!

Remember that the convent has a 9pm-ish curfew but you can get your credencial from there.

you shouldn't have any problem to stay in the albergue if you are going to walk the next day. I've done it many times.

Buen Camino,

Camino walkers love this gripping, intriguing, mystery with history novel.
