First, let me say, Hotel Plaza Colon, thank you for a great stay we had with you a few weeks ago. Your hotel helped us have wonderful memories of Nicaragua.

Traveling with 3 young kids (12, 10, 7) can sometimes be difficult, but not at Plaza Colon.
1. They let all 5 of us use a single room, unlike many other hotels that required 2 rooms. It was one overlooking the Plaza, with a gorgeous balcony.
2. The facilities were lovely - what a nice swimming pool for the kids in the inside patio.
3. Can't say enough about the helpful staff - They were ready whenever we needed anything - laundry: they had it done for us same day for a reasonable price; van to San Jorge to get to Ometepe: a quick call and they had it arranged.
4. Breakfast was big and filling -- the standard breakfast you get everywhere around Nicaragua, eggs, Gallo y pinto, fruit (delicious fresh of all types), bread....
5. The business center is airconditioned and has internet access free. Hope you don't need it, but it's there and handy.

Only one thing -- and I would not call this a criticism as I face the same thing everywhere -- for the jet lagged morning person who needs a 4 or 5 a.m. cup of coffee, you will have a hard time in Granada. I had to take a walk down into the working streets where ladies start selling it from little thermoses they carry for about 25 cordobas (5 cents?). It is presweetened and already has milk, which I guess is there custom, but boy, it is caffeine when you need it. But, try to have exact change. If the hotel had one of those little coffee pots with some coffee, I'd have been in heaven. But, by 7 am, the hotel has their breakfast and coffee ready for everyone, so no biggy for the normal tourist.

Again, thank you Hotel Plaza Colon!
Roberto

Not much new to report other than what everyone else is saying. We stayed 3 nights at the Gran Francia, 2 nights at the Alhambra and 3 nights at the Plaza Colon. While all three are very nice hotels (hard to go wrong in Granada, what a great town) the Plaza Colon was the tops of the three places we stayed.

The breakfast gets a B-, but everything else was A++, especially the service. Definitely spring for a room with a huge balcony over looking the central park.

The location of the hotel was excellent, right on the main plaza. Our room was comfortable, modern and very clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed using the courtyard pool and we liked that the price included breakfast in the morning.

First class hotel in the heart of Granada, if lucky enough you could be treated to a night of classical guitar, wine and cigars
