“A step back in time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

We spent 2 nights at La Bocona with our 2 children, ages 3 and 5. Our flight got in late at night, and we were picked up by Miguel at the airport which was greatly appreciated after a long day of travelling with small children. Our daughters loved the hotel and the gorgeous beds with their mosquito netting, and the staff were all very sweet with them. We had 2 king beds, and our room was absolutely massive! It faced on to the street, which had some noise, but was truly no bother at all. Miguel was happy to offer up suggestions of things to do, and arranged a boat cruise for us and suggested a great restaurant that was totally family friendly. We felt very safe, and the bathrooms across the hall was no bother at all. I had a facial at the spa which was lovely, and the pool was delightful. I would absolutely return, and would recommend for travellers of all types.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with family

The bed is very good,and the room huge, but you do not have your own bathroom.You have your own bathroom outside your room........
You do not have airconditioning and no window in your room..
There is no bar in the hotel and the breakfast is regular.
That alltogether makes it very unconfortable and for that price we will never come back.

Room Tip: Choose an other hotel.

Thank you for your review

It looks like you have never been in a colonial mansion before

When a room faces the street there is room for window....safety reasons and also building regulations you dont need no one to peep thru your room.

The breakfast is nor regular....is Nicaraguan style!!

A converted colonial villa with six spacious rooms, antique furnishings, and a perfectly central location in Granada. After a long day of sightseeing and navigating through the chaos in the city, it's great to be able to walk a few blocks back to the hotel and recharge.

Miguel, the manager, is helpful in recommending things to do and routes to take. The breakfasts are also excellent, my favorite being the crepes with papaya, lemon, and honey.

There is a karaoke club nearby and it is on one of the central streets, so it can get a little noisy. In general, with the fan and the A/C on we did not have any trouble falling asleep.

It is very noisy. The hotel is located right in the middle of the city. There are no traffic lights in Granada, so the locals honk their horns at intersections to alert others. Even with the fan and AC on, we could not get much sleep.

In addition, the bathrooms are separate, which is clearly stated, but you need to walk across a mini outdoor courtyard to access. I was not super comfortable roaming around there in my PJ's.

Lastly, the rooms are very nice, but the beds are quite firm. That may be okay for some, but not so much for us.

The man at the front desk, Miguel is super nice though. The only one there who speaks English. I just wanted to mention that as he was very helpful getting us settled, identifying good places for us to eat, and also agreed to refund our money for the nights we did not remain there.

This is a great place with a lot of history. It’s nice and quiet and located just a couple of blocks from the main square. Romantic rooms with four post beds and high vaulted ceilings. Miguel, who manages the place, is super friendly and helpful. I wish we had stayed longer.

This hotel is, the best place that you enjoy peacefully and quietly your staying. It is situated, close to everything you need. After a day in that historical city of Granada, you will feel peace and comfort in those enormous rooms that, La Bocona have. Amazing staff and Miguel, manager of La Bocona, will help you on any question, no matter how many, and answer with honestly and smile. Very professionals. Thank you so much. Be back soon

Hotel Bocona is aesthetically charming, with good service, and well situated as a destination to explore Granada, a starting point into south west Nicaragua, or a return stop for a night before heading to the airport.

Rooms are enormous, albeit sparse, there is a lovely, small swimming pool, an excellent massage studio, hammocks and tables throughout. Breakfast is simple, but very good, with attentive service. And provided the manager Miguel is there, problems or needs can be solved quickly.

The hotel isn't cheap, especially to Nica standards, but it is worth it. Enjoy.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room off of the street, as those on the street can be a bit noisier. This...
