I spent six nights at Hotel Plaza Colon in November of 2011. It is a very nice hotel. All of the facilities are excellent and very clean. The staff is also friendly and helpful. It is in a great location, across from the central park, within walking distance of everything.

Hotel Plaza Colon is an amazing hotel right prime location right on the main plaza in Granada. With colonial architecture, fantastic service, and a beautiful open setting for swimming, eating and lounging, this is the place to stay while in Granada. Spend the extra money for a balcony room facing the plaza and you will not be disappointed. The staff is super friendly and will go out their way to help and organize any day trips you might want to do. Great place to relax and soak in Nicaraguan culture.

I decided to treat myself and splurge on something nice and comfortable with atmosphere and location. The Hotel Plaza Colon had them all, espeically if you upgrade to a balacony room overlooking the square and Cathedral. The glow on the setting sun onto the yellow Cathedral with a couple of Tonas (great Nica beer) was just what I was looking for. Also, the service and staff were all extremely personable and helpful.

Room Tip: If plan to spend much time in the room, spring for a balcony room.

We stayed 2 nights in a king balcony room. The rooms are large, with bed, small desk, closet, dresser. There was space for a chaise or sofa, which would've been a nice touch (but not there). The bathroom is small but clean; we were advised not to drink the tap water and the hotel provides bottled water for you. The balcony looks over the park, which is usually full of people--but the doors completely shut out all noise and light, so no worries on that front. We arranged airport transfer through the hotel, and had no problems with this: $35 cash, driver waiting outside the doors of the airport. You can walk from the hotel to most city sights, or the horse-drawn carriages line up right outside. Breakfast was quite good. I would highly recommend sucking it up and taking the 45 minute ride from Managua airport to Granada to start your trip from here.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms overlook the park; there are only a few so book early

While I was in Granada we stayed at this wonderful hotel with the best location in town. Right in front of the park Central. The service is really good and both rooms and bathrooms are very nice and clean. In connection with the hotel, they have a cafe with a very nice view over the park Central. My highest recommendation of this beautiful and colonial hotel.

Yesterday, I returned from a five night stay at the Hotel Plaza Colon. It ranks very high as a preferred property as it should. They have 27 rooms and a staff ratio of about one person per room. It is a beautiful hotel due to it's authentic colonial style. The staff works constantly to maintain all aspects of the property, cleanliness, charm, and offering a very high degree of customer service. I was slightly dissapointed that the pool and the cafe were closed for renovations and upgrades, but, that it a small price to pay for keeping the place in elegant, pristine condition. I believe these renovations will be finished very shortly.The location on the main plaza in town is perfect for watching streetlife, or walking 3-5 minutes to local restaurants. The concierge staff were very helpful in recommending the right tours, friendly drivers and good local restaurants. The authenticity of this gem in a colonial city such as Granada is an unbeatable combination. I hope to return someday for another visit.

Room Tip: Interior rooms do not have street noise. Balcony rooms overlooking the main plaza have a great view...
