“Their breakfasts seal the deal!”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

The owner & staff are friendly, very accommodating and hospitable.

The rooms are cosy, decorated with local arts/crafts and clean. When we stayed here they only had 1 room with 2 single beds available on the ground floor (facing the pool) but gladly made the beds up as a king (but at the cost of a queen) for a couple (us!) to enjoy.

Breakfast is included in the price of the room and it was not a disappointment! No continentals here; they served up eggs of your desire, fresh yogurt with seasonal fruit and granola (local honey too which is sooo good!), coffee & fresh juices. Their breakfasts' are proof that it truly is the most important meal of the day.

There's a lounging area w/free computer & Internet access and a coffee/bar where you can order beverages. The computers can get busy but maybe free wifi is available (we didn't bring a computer or iPhones).

My boyfriend and I lounged around in the large hammocks provided and I even goofed around on the large swing over by the giant-sized chess board & pieces!

This is a lovely hotel and I highly recommend it. We stayed for three nights and the staff were very accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The hotel is located just a couple of blocks from the main square- close enough to walk easily, far enough to stay relatively quiet.

We booked Hotel con Corazon based on its amazing online reputation and were not disappointed in the least.

The service from everyone at the hotel was so warm and friendly. Our room (#7) was clean and cozy and the complimentary breakfast was a great way to fuel up for a busy day.

We found the location to be just fine, close to the charming colonial heart of Granada but in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle. There's a nice little pool to help you cool down after a day of touring.

We arranged for transportation from San Jorge, and the cab driver who picked us up was punctual and very nice.

We took several tours from the hotel's in-house tour company during out stay and are very glad we did.

We went to the Masaya market, climbed around Mombacho volcano and took a cooking class. The guides were so nice and helpful (thanks Maria and Frank!) and the tours were such great value for all that we learned and experienced.

Last, but certainly not least: Read up on the hotel's mission to social responsibility and helping the local community. Really inspiring stuff.

It's not overly fancy, but who needs excess frills when you have a hotel with such heart. Bravo!

Very good, prompt service. Comfortable rooms, kept clean with great service. Managers visible and very friendly. The breakfast was wonderful and extensive. Short walk to many places in Granada. We stayed two nights and it was the best place during our 11 day stay in Nicaragua. I also appreciate that profits benefit education.

We booked a room in hotel Con Corazon for the first couple of nights of our family trip in Nicaragua. The only thing I can say is that I wished it had cost less, so I could stay there my whole visit :-) (we paid 80$/90$ a night, for a double bed and an extra bed+ a crib, which is not a lot, but was more than we expected to pay in such a destination). Since it was our first time in Nica, I only later came to appreciate how professional and high standard this place was. From the hospitable staff at the reception to the small but cosy and really clean rooms (with very soft linens and perfact matresses); from the delicious rich breakfast to the cute pool and the beautiful garden. This place is an oasis. It is indeed one of the only places I came across in Nica where you can feel how all the small detailes have been thought of . And the fact that it is also contributes to a good cause makes it even more appealing.
To sum things up: perfact hotel, good atmosphere, central location and if you can spare the extra dollars, it's definitly worth it.

This is a beautiful colonial hotel with great staff. The rooms are not large, but spotlessly clean and cosy. Nice, fresh bathroom. Both the room and the bath room have several shelves for storage. The room also has a safe and air conditioning.The best part of the hotel is the courtyard with lots of tropical green plants and flowers, hammocks, areas for relaxing and a (cold) pool. Wi-fi was fast in the courty yard.

Breakfast consisted of fresh fruits, müslie and yougurt, freshly squeezed juice, bread and eggs, everything super fresh. The atmosphere at the hotel was very relaxing. I definitely want to go back just for the hotel, to sit in the lovely court yard and read a book.

Some nights they serve dinner, but not when we were there. The bar makes excellent cocktails.

They arranged a cot for our 2 year old son and everybody was very friendly towards him. Granada was not the best place for a small child who wants to run around as it was too hot and we couldn't find any safe areas for him to let of steam. But when he is older I hope to go back and then I will definitely stay at Hotel Con Corazon.

My husband and I spent four nights here. We loved the atmosphere, the staff is very friendly (they help you arranging transport, guides,...), the room was rather small but very clean. There is a small and nice swimming pool but the water is cold (we recommend Laguna de Apoyo for a fantastic swim!). The hotel conveniently located, just a few blocks away from the main square. We loved their very open and transparant mission of supporting and establishing local education programmes with the profits!
