Hostal de San Marcos is a Parador Nacional, that is, a state-owned hotel, in a historic building.
The Hostal de San Marcos was begun in the 16th century. It was built to house the western headquarters of the Military Order of Saint James. The project was financed by King Ferdinand the Catholic. Over the centuries, the friars tended the battered bodies of pilgrims.
Unique Quality: If you stay in the Parador you will be able to visit the historical building. the Chapter house, the cloister, where you can access from the ground floor, but also from the third floor, going up the magnificent stairs you see from the hall; the library, from which you can see the adjacent San Marcos church, its altarpiece and the choir.
I was very lucky to stay in this Parador when I attended a conference at the University of Leon. There is an agreement between the hotel and the University and I could take profit of a reduced tariff.
This hotel of the Government-run Paradores chain is located in one of the most beautiful buildings of Leon. Built in the 13th century as accomodation for the Santiago Route pilgrims, it also has a nice church and a beautiful cloisters, that can be visited separately.
The rooms are in a new building, behind the old one, but the hall and the restaurant are in the old part.
