We just returned from an 8 day stay in Nicaragua with 3 nights at the beginning of the trip at La Gran Francia & then 1 night a the end. We booked tours & transfers through the hotel ( they were a little more expensive) & they did an excellent job, making us feel almost like family. The first 3 nights we stayed in the El Duque Suite & while beautifully decorated, it was very dark. The last night we were in a Junior Suite & much preferred that room. The unfortunate part of our stay was that the hot water heater was broken & they could not get a part to fix it so we never had hot water. Also, I agree that the hotel is noisy but it is a fabulous location with wonderful views of the cathedral & Mombocho. We thought breakfast was good. The manager, Barbara, made booking of everything very easy & our driver Renee was great. Both tour guides, Alejandro & Elvis did an excellent job.

In two distinct and centric settings, La Gran Francia Colonial Hotel offers its guests a total of 35 air-conditioned rooms, with all modern comforts and amenities.
