My wife, Trish, and I spent one wonderful night at La Gran Francia hotel just off the main public square in lovely Granada, Nicaragua. La Gran Francia had been recommended to us by our son and his wife, who had stayed there 10 years ago. We arrived by microbus from Managua and wheeled our luggage around the corner to our hotel. The checkin (and checkout) staff were very attentive to our needs, the room on the 2nd floor was very spacious, and the hand-painted sink in the bathroom unique in our travel experience. Unique enough for me to take a photo of it. In the 17 days and nights we spent in both Costa Rica and Nicaragua, the mattress on our bed at La Gran Francia was the best of the whole trip. Trish wanted to tie it to the roof of the bus to San Jose, but I talked her out of it. For the sheer comfort and convenience to walking around the downtown area, La Gran Francia cannot be beat.

This architectural jewel was restored during the decade of the 1990's, recovering the majesty and splendor of its heyday and today houses our hotel restaurant, bars and banquet hall facilities. 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.
