“The Plaza Colon Continues to be Outstanding...”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

If you are coming to Granada there is no better place to stay, in no better location. Maria Isabel and her staff continue to exceed my expectations by exuding warmth, competence and delivering value and safety during my travels. Breakfast is delicious, the front desk and bell staff are attentive and able, Joann and Maria even made a router for WIFI exclusive to my room. This stay is just under 3 weeks and I will be sorry to leave.

Room Tip: Go for a room on the side of the hotel not on the street -- there is a charming patio and no noise.

Hotel Plaza Colon and the staff are amazing!! The front desk and customer relations folks go way above and beyond to make ones time in Granada relaxing, comfortable and fun. They have really good insights into where to go, what to do, where to eat, how to get around etc. So helpful! They all deserve a raise. :)

Additionally, the rooms are immaculate with incredible views of the square. We stayed in one of the balcony rooms and ended everyday with a dip in the pool followed by drinks on the balcony. So good!

I did a lot of research when choosing hotels to stay in while in Nicaragua as we were there for our honeymoon and I was surprising my wife with all of it, so I wanted to it be perfect. My wife and I couldn't have been happier with Hotel Plaza Colon!

If you're staying in Granada, this is the place!

Room Tip: Stay in one of the rooms with a view of the square!

We loved Hotel Plaza Colon! Right in the center of Granada, Nicaragua and also very easy to find! The hotel staff were extremely friendly and the rooms were huge! Also, there's free WIFI everywhere in the hotel. Breakfast is also included and you can find anything from local breakfast to continental. Plaza Colon also has a lovely bar were you can sit outside and watch the people. There's really no better place to stay in Granada! It's a beautiful hotel as well!

You could not ask for a better place to stay in Granada, directly on the square & across from the cathederal. Don't be fooled by the exterior. That's what authentic colonial architecture is. Once inside you are taken into what feels like the home of an upper class city dweller. Fantastic room with ultra modern bath. Free WiFi & TV, along with things like a robe as you would expect in a 4 star property. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I experienced in Nicaragua. I stayed 2 nights as a single. The price with tax only $187.43. Truly a bargain.
Reserve directly, as the will match the rate of the hotel discounters.

Loved everything about this place. They serve breakfast which was great. Nice pool. Nice rooms. Walking distance to sights and info about touristy things. The lady at the concierge desk (Virginia was her name I think), was incredibly helpful!! Our tour guide from one day (whom we found across the street in the park) was great and so we set up a tour for the following day and he never showed. Virginia was able to make some calls and get us the same tour for the same day...only had to wait 20 mins! (Careful when getting guides from the park!) She was also very helpful when we were trying to book our hotel in Ometepe....she called a bunch for us. Would definitely stay here again. We had a room with the balcony facing the pool and there weren't any chairs to sit on. Definitely would've liked to sit outside on the balcony.

Room Tip: We weren't able to get a room with the balcony on the square but would've liked to!

My husband and I stayed here for our three night stint in Granada during our three-week Nicaragua honeymoon. It was the best three night's sleep of the entire trip because of it's beauty, charm and locale, first-rate service, level of comfort, and (by American standards) fantastic value. Overlooking the town center, the building is beautiful both inside and out. The staff is excellent. My husband and I both required medical attention (for different reasons), and they did not hesitate to send a great doctor to our room on both occasions. I mentioned that my husband's birthday was coming up, and we were greeted at breakfast with a hand-written card signed by the entire staff, and a special birthday muffin with a candle in it. They also made dinner recommendations and reservations for us, alerting the restaurant to my husband's birthday as well. Our room was air conditioned, the bed was large and comfortable, the shower hot, and there are multiple cable TV channels in both Spanish and English. Finally, the breakfast buffet was first rate - we looked forward to it every morning. During the off-season, in the most expensive room, we paid $99 a night (breakfast included).

Room Tip: Rooms with the balcony are worth it, but are noisier than rooms facing the courtyard during the day.

We enjoyed our time in Granada and felt the hotel really "made it so"!
The rooms were spacious, clean, cool, and comfortable. Breakfast was ample and delicious, and the setting and location ideal for exploring the area.

Room Tip: We liked being towards the back.
