good hotel and the best in granada. get the rooms upstairs as cleaner newer air co with good ceiling fans, newer good quality beds high ceilings and spacious room. cross ventilation with balcony door and fron door. big wooden doors. tiled floors.. slept well . the bigger rooms with big balcony at the front are not as comfortable due to poorly located air conditioners and older slower one speed fan and lumpy beds.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. First, the pre-stay communications. It started off with the hotel being unresponsive to my initial inquiry. But, after a quick follow up, the general manager immediately replied and was very apologetic. My original email probably got lost somewhere in the cloud. Thereafter, they have been very responsive and helpful - and I wrote quite a few emails with plenty of questions. The rates were not the cheapest but not crazy either. Considering that breakfast was included, and wifi was free (although can't stream anything), we thought the rates were fair.

Second, the stay. The hotel was right in front of Parque Central. It was also beautiful. It had a small pool and breakfast was served in the pool area. We opted to have a balcony view of Parque Cental. The room was very spacious, had air conditioning and a ceiling fan. The bathroom was modern (shower only, no bathtub) and very clean. The bed was comfortable. My favorite part of the room was our large balcony. It had two rocking chairs and a table -- a perfect place to sip the local rum (flor de cana) or any other drink when having a nightcap or just a comfortable place to people watch during the day.

Third, the breakfast. The menu changed everyday but, for the most part, the dishes we chose that were traditional Nicaraguan food were tasty. The time I chose to eat the eggs benedict, it was not very good.

Fourth, the people. All the staff we met were very helpful and friendly. Special thanks to Virginia who arranged our transportation to/from the airport (the hotel does not contract with anyone but just makes arrangements with third parties -- payment goes directly to the third party vendor). When the car service came late and we ended up getting a cab from the airport to the hotel, she was very apologetic and ensured that our transportation back to the airport was timely. Sure enough, when we were about to head back to the airport, which coincidentally was on a day when there was a taxi strike (where the taxis blocked the entire street and left their cars there) that shut down the street in front of the hotel, our car was early. Virginia was also a great source of information about the city. She was also very helpful when something went awry with our flight. The other staff members from the servers (breakfast) to the cleaning people were all very friendly.

Overall, we had a great stay at the hotel.

We stayed a total of 5 nights in this wonderful hotel, from the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. We arrived before lunch and as our room was not ready we were offered a welcome cocktail and had lunch at the attached sandwich bar next door. Our room was spacious with a large balcony overlooking the plaza, we enjoyed watching the comings and goings in the square. Every evening we had cocktails during the 2 for 1 happy hour and enjoyed chatting to the staff and people watching on the veranda. Breakfast by the pool was delicious with plenty of choice ranging from typical Nicaraguan dishes to western favourites all served up by smiling and friendly staff. In general the staff and service were exceptional and in particular Carlos made our stay a most memorable one in this outstanding hotel.

Room Tip: It's worth paying a little extra for a balcony overlooking the Plaza, although the birds can be...

Best location in town, very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful property, pool, and cafe. Room was clean and modern with excellent bed and bathroom. I spent three nights and it was the perfect spot from which to explore Granada. It opens onto the park and is a short walk to practically all of the sights and top restaurants.

The minute we checked in we were impressed by the property and the excellent staff. The beds were so comfortable and the rooms spotless. The bar service was friendly and professional. The breakfast buffet was exceptional and delicious. The front desk staff attended to all our needs. The hotel is right in the heart of beautiful Granada. With all the festivities going on (The Hipica) we could duck into the hotel coutyard and pool for relaxation. Dont miss the pool appetizer menu and their bloody marys and mojitos. I am looking forward to my return to the Plaza Colon and will recommend the hotel to all my friends.

We were surprised at the old world beauty and calm at the Hotel Plaza Colon ..We arrived in Granada during a crazy noisy festival day. Entering the court yard of the hotel with a beautiful pool and landscaping , one would not know of the noise outside. The rooms were huge and well appointed ..the breakfast was wonderful and set around the beautiful pool area. My husband and I had a room with a baloney over looking the beautiful square and church ..once all the festivities ended ..this was a wonderful place to sit and have coffee and people watch ..I would return to the Colon on our next trip to Granada

Room Tip: Room with a balcony facing Square I do not know if there was a fitness center...I cannot unmark s...

I stayed 3 days in the Hotel Plaza Colon. The hotel is beautiful, incredibly clean, just so great. I have honestly travel working all over the world from Dubai, to Singapore, Thailand, US, Europe and more. I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world which are beautiful but it is the people (the staff) at the hotel Plaza Colon that makes it one of the best I have stayed. The staff are so incredible, helpful, friendly and genuinely such good souled people. Everyone at the hotel. I reccomend it highly.
