I had previously visited Granada five years ago and being disappointed in the Hotel Alhambra, I used an evening to visit many hotels in the city at the time. I had been impressed with the beautiful architecture of La Gran Francia and decided to stay there on my return visit. I was not disappointed. It is one of the best examples of Spanish Colonial construction in Nicaragua dating back to afew years later than 1524. I have traveled to El Veijo in San Juan, Puerto Rico and El Casco Viejo in Panama City. This stands as a hotel in the finest tradition of ancient colonial cities in Latin America. The staff are diligent, polite and so eager to provide good service. The restaurant serves delicious food. You can not go wrong here. The tours they arranged for us were led by an excellent tour guide, Juan Ponco. Osnar at the desk of the hotel is a eager young man, most concerned that your service is excellent.

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.
