We really enjoyed staying at Terrasol. We spent 5 days in Granada and the surrounding area near the start of our trip, and even stayed one more night there after returning from Ometepe (on our way to the north). The location was perfect for us- a few blocks away from the Cathedral square and the main tourist area, so we could easily walk there when we wanted to....but it was tucked away in a quieter/safe neighborhood, and easy to "get away from the crowd."
Like many people have said before, the owners (Victor and Katya) were excellent hosts. They were typically around each morning, and were very accommodating. Depending on your travel style, they were willing to help you with transportation arrangements or find a tour company to set up a trip...or simply answer questions and offer advice about where to get the best currency exchange rate, bus routes/locations, where to go in the market to find certain things, and how best the explore the area on your own terms. The rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful as well, even helping me get some clothes tailored on short notice. Cold beer was always close-at-hand, and they even humored me, letting me practice my Spanish with them. Couldn't have been better.
The rooms are a bit small, but they're comfortable...a very good bargain. With the heat, we were glad to have a window and a fan, and in the cooler evenings, we made sure to sit out on the communal balcony and take in the views. The on-site restaurant was only serving breakfast at the time- but that was a good start to each day. Large croissant, coffee, mixed fruit, and homemade guava jelly- light meal, but very tasty! We would definitely recommend Terrasol to our traveling friends, and hope to stay there again, if/when we go to Granada again. Thanks!
