Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2009

Hotel con Corazon was recommended to us by the Hotel Patio Malinchi since they were full for the Semana Santa. Luckily we were able to reserve the family room (two standard rooms with a shared bath) for three nights. The hotel has only been open since October 2008 and is clean and well-appointed. Rooms are basic but comfortable with adequate AC. Bathrooms are of a sleek, poured concrete design and very functional.

The hotel was close to full for the time we were there but it remained very tranquil and relaxing. We loved the simple decor of the place -- old roof tiles as wall sconces, beer bottles stuffed with strings of lights as bar accents and hammocks scattered throughout. I had the pleasure of sitting and talking for a bit with the new manager Frank, whom I met after he spent an hour (literally) teaching my ten-year old daughter how to play chess on the big board in the lobby. I was impressed with his commitment to maintaining a high level of customer service at the hotel and his interest in expanding the outreach and education programs with the local Nica students which is at the cornerstone of Hotel con Corazon's mission as a non-profit. As a side note, the hotel advertises that all profits go towards local programs for the children of the barrio. I asked about what are considered "profits" and I was told that the two founders are not taking salaries from the hotel and that it was created solely as a generator of funds for their Foundation. Reason enough to support the Hotel in my book. In fact, while we were there, they were setting up an exhibition of photos taken by kids from the program supported by the hotel. We were able to buy a couple small photos for my daughter's room and have them signed by the 14-year old photographer who beamed with pride as she did so.

I would recommend Hotel con Corazon without hesitation. It is a quality hotel on its own and its philanthropic mission only enhances its appeal.

"Hotel con Corazon" is a wonderful place to stay for any type of traveler. It is a quite and comfortable hotel with AC and wireless internet. Service is perfect, staff is very friendly and helpful. It is very close to the main square.Rooms have great showers with hot water. Laundry service is also available. This place is non-profit which makes it even more attractive. If you need airport pick-up, Hotel con Corazon has a driver who will pick you up. The driver is very nice (even though he really likes to talk) and will tell you everything about his life during an hour long drive to the hotel.

On this trip I mostly stayed in b&b's but decided to get myself a little extra luxury at Hotel con Corazon, Granada. I loved it! It's very laid-back; the staff are especially helpful and friendly. They have a nice pool, it's not big but does the trick :) Rooms are simple but elegant (and they have hot water). And the food is great.

Highly recommended.

I absolutely love this place. It's got a really laid-back vibe that echoes the rest of Granada and has all the comforts of a modern hotel. The staff and the owner are all very nice and helpful. The rooms are really comfy and are really well designed as well. The shower is really unique. And to top it off, it's only 2 blocks from parque central!

Overall, one of the best places to stay in Granada possibly in all of Nicaragua. Would def recommend it all all travelers, young and old.

I recently stayed here while traveling through Nicaragua with my boyfriend. We arrived in Granada late at night and found a very upscale hotel to stay in. They were charging almost a 100 dollars to stay there a night. When we told them them that we were looking for a more economical place to stay, and they recommended Hotel con Corazon. Luckily for us, there was availability and we booked the hotel without even seeing it. How lucky were we!? The hotel looked the same as the first one we had arrived at, and cost a considerable amount less. The room was air conditioned and had cable television. It was really close to the center of town where all of the restaurants and nightlife is located. The breakfast (which is included in the price of the hotel stay) was excellent and everything was really fresh -- I highly recommend the smoothies. And we were so impressed by the fact that this hotel is a nonprofit and gives money to educating children in Nicaragua! I can't recommend this hotel enough!

We stayed three nights at Hotel con Corozon during a whirlwind trip to Granada and area, dragging along with us two small children aged 5 and 3, and we couldn't have found a better place to rest our weary bodies.
Travelling with small children is not always easy, nor are they always welcomed by hotels or other guests. But the staff at Hotel con Corozon went out of their way to make us feel welcome and even brought in a pint-sized child's bed -- with matching bedspread -- so we would each have a comfortable night's rest.
Staff were also very helpful in offering age-appropriate sight-seeing suggestions and assisting in making reservations when and where needed. They also provided a laptop computer on loan so we could research places we wanted to see and let family back home know we were in good hands.
Although there is no parking on site, the hotel pointed us to an inexpensive safe parking lot only steps from their front door.
The minimalist decore is pleasing; the rooms spic and span and very homey. It is right in keeping with their theme of working with the community and creating a better future for the children of Nicaragua.
The rates for this new lodging , which includes a heaping and healthy breakfast -- are also reasonable -- so reasonable they bound to go up as word spreads about this brand new hotel.
So get there soon because this place is destined to become one the must-stay places in Granada.

This was a wonderful hotel to come to on our Day 2 of our first trip to Nicaragua. Fantastic! The hotel helps non-profits in the area with its proceeds. It has been open less than 6 months. Marcel (one of the owners) is a great guy, building this hotel over the last 2 years and bringing the dream to fruition. We felt so good staying here knowing that this hotel is catalyst for change, a giver. The hotel is comfortable, inviting and charming. We loved sitting on the balcony reading, or eating meals in the outdoor dining area. The pool is just the right size, clean and everyone working there is HELPFUL. Our Spanish was rather limited, so we often needed help in getting cabs, understanding directions, questions etc. Everyone (especially Alfredo & Martin) were there to support our journey. This was my first time in a Third World country. I had some adjusting to make and Hotel Con Corazon was the perfect place for me to be. The rooms are basic, but very clean and comfortable. All my needs were met and even beyond. We stayed there 3 nights when we arrived and at the end of our 24 day trip we spent the last 3 nights there. This should tell you how much we enjoyed our visit and staying here. You won't be sorry you chose this place.
