“Wonderful hotel and staff”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

This air-conditioned hotel is super clean, beautifully decorated with all the modern comforts we needed. It is perfectly situated right off the square in Granada and near coffee shops, restaurants and all the sights. The rooms are extremely spacious and well-appointed. Ice-cold bottled water is readily available and reasonably priced. The staff (all of them) are absolutely wonderful. They provided fantastic service for us at every turn from help with the bags (in and out), directions, restaurant recommendations, and everything in between. Attentive management and super wi-fi. We are highly recommending this property and staff to our family and friends.

Room Tip: The family suites are particularly wonderful. The loft is great for the kids leaving a nice private...

My girlfriend and I stayed at this lovely hotel for about 5 nights during Semana Santa. We changed rooms a couple of times because we left town once or twice, and each room was absolutely gorgeous and comfortable. It seemed like no matter where we were within the hotel itself, our rooms had private outdoor sitting areas either overlooking one of the two pools or some local artwork, very comfy beds, hot water, quiet air conditioning. One of the most impressive aspects of this cosmopolitan hotel was the hospitality of the entire staff -- including the gracious owners, the staff at the front desk, Claudia at the pool bar, the breakfast servers, the housekeepers. Each one was so friendly and helpful -- we felt warmly welcomed and right at home. Conveniently located about a half-block from the main square, noisiness was never an issue. There were several choices for breakfast, but I always chose the fruit -- fresh and delicious -- with yogurt. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to stay in Granada. Colonial Hotel is definitely a place to return to again and again and again. Oh -- be sure to have dinner at Las Colinas -- the absolute best fish, and a favorite of the owners'.

Great end to our holiday staying at this hotel. The welcome by the owners was warming and personal.the hotel is beautifully decorated.
We stayed in a family room on the first night which was fantastic. Room was huge, split level, four poster bed downstairs and 2 queen beds upstairs . We stayed in a junior suite for a further 2 nights which has a balcony overlooking the pool. Again great room and facilities, quiet air con and hot water.
The hotel staff were helpful and the bar staff had great sense of humour. The 2 small swimming pools were well placed with both sun and shade a great to have a swim after a day of sight seeing.
The owner assisted in making dinner reservations for us and recommended places to eat. There is a plethora of good places to eat in Granada and the city has a good vibe. We stayed over Easter weekend and observed a few processions and lively celebrations.
The hotel is in a great location and Granada has a lot of charm.
Would highly recommend the hotel.

Our room (#13) for our family with two teenagers was absolutely gorgeous - giant poster bed downstairs for the adults, two beds upstairs for the kids. It overlooked a beautiful pool that was wonderful to come back to after a day in 90-plus degree weather. The owner was so kind and helpful and friendly...over breakfast he made sure to check in with every family. And I felt spoiled to not only have all this beauty but also luxuries like AC, wifi and delicious fruit every morning for breakfast. If I ever am lucky enough to return to Grenada, we will certainly stay here again.

A little gem of a hotel. Friendly, unpretentious, beautifully decorated. After travelling through hot and sweaty Nicaragua it was a real pleasure to be greeted by the owners on our arrival. I'd booked a single room and was pleasantly pleased to find a queen sized bed, not the usual single. The room was bright and even though it was on the street, very quiet. And joy of joys, aircon, and a quiet aircon too + ceiling fan. 1 small issue was water temperature. I had no hot water whilst there although I did not complain as cold showers are the order of the day in this hot country.
The staff were very friendly, especially on reception and in the bar where Claudia ;) serves up great piña colada's and gin n tonic and does not skimp on the alcohol like some places I've been.
Location could not be better, just off the main square. All trips are available to be booked from reception with just a small premium to pay on top of what you can haggle down the street.
