“Again, excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

We stayed here again, loved it. Used the hotel to book car from Managua airport and trip to border as well-excellent service, on time and clean, reliable cars. We stayed in the balcony rooms and it is worth the coupla extra dollars to watch the square during the day, especially the morning set up. Service was flawless, we know Carlos by name now and he takes care of it all. Breakfast was excellent; rooms were clean and everything worked well. We can't find a reason to say anywhere else.

Room Tip: Book the balcony rooms, it is worth the coupla extra dollars for the view.....in a large party ask f...

Absolutely loved our stay at Plaza Colon. The location is amazing right on the central plaza. The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. We reserved a room with a balcony overlooking the plaza which is a perfect place to enjoy an early evening glass of wine with a fantastic view of the church and the hustle and bustle of all the evening activities in the plaza. we spent plenty of time around the pool as well which was a perfect way to relax and cool down during the hot city afternoons. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The woman who helps set up all the tours and activities even was able to schedule a fairy for us to take our car to Ometempe, which after going through the process of actually taking the fairy must have been quite a pain for her to set up. Also don't miss the free breakfast it is yummy, they cook your eggs to order. It's a great way to fill up and start your day and save some $$$. Loved everything about this hotel especially all the amenities and it is such an amazing value.

Room Tip: if your ok with a little morning noise definitely get a room with a balcony overlooking the plaza it...

This hotel is perfect. The location is ideal, the rooms are great and the staff is first class. The hotel was clean and the pool was a good place to cool off in the late afternoon. I normally do not like the "free breakfasts" that come with hotels, but this was great with a different selection everyday. Virginia in guest relations was excellent!!! She set up a tour, translated for us when we had a car delivered and even gave us her cell number in case we had problems with the car on her day off. We had a problem with a credit card (fraud alert notification) and had to call the States and Virginia had the front desk call for us and we got everything straightend out right away. Overall, this hotel was worth every bit of the VERY reasonable price and we would definitely stay here again. .

If one hotel represents the city of Granada it is the Hotel Plaza Colon. A colonial gem with rooms that are spacious and modern, yet represent the past wonders of this great city. I stayed in both the plaza facing rooms and the a side room without a view. Both have there place. The plaza facing rooms have wonderful balconies/patios, while my interior room had incredible architectural touches. Thehotel location is wonderful, as you are a short walk from almost any of the wonderful restaurants, cafes, and other sights. The plaza is literally in front of the hotel and a cafe that serves excellent nicaraguan coffee is on the front patio of the hotel affording great people watching. My only complaint was that I would have wished the pool was larger to swim laps, but that was a minor sacrifice to stay in such a wonderful hotel. Breakfast was included with the room and served great juices, fruits, yogurt, and dishes.

Room Tip: Absolute personal choice. Plaza facing rooms will have a bit more noise since the wide doors open o...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Plaza Colon for our honeymoon in June, and we could not have been happier with our choice.

First, the location. You can't ask for a better location. Right on Plaza Colon, with some rooms overlooking the plaza and beautiful views of the Cathedral (despite some reviewers complaints, we never had any issues with noise from the plaza). Also, it is centrally located--just a short walk to the bars and restaurants on calzada, but far enough away for some peace and quiet.

Second, the quality of the rooms/hotel. The rooms were extremely large and very clean, with beautiful wood floors and doors. Great hot water, water pressure and air conditioning, luxuries in Nicaragua. Some of the rooms overlook the plaza, and others overlook the two central courtyards in the hotel, with one of the courtyards having a nice pool. Although they don't have a fitness center, they offer free passes to a small, local gym. And the breakfast was simply amazing. We traveled all over Nicaragua for our honeymoon (Corn Islands, Managua, Ometepe, Pacific Coast), and one of our favorite times was having a nice, relaxing breakfast at the hotel as we planned our day.

Finally, and I really can't say enough about this, but the service was simply outstanding--from the bellboy, to the reception, to the servers, to the concierge. They were all not only extremely helpful, but also friendly and went out of their way to help and always with a smile on their faces. They helped us with ALL our transportation over Nicaragua, including arranging for transportation from our hotel on the Pacific coast back to the airport. They helped with our tours/siteseeing around Granada and with arranging a hotel on Ometepe.

We would highly recommend Hotel Plaza Colon to any and all travelers, with a couple looking for a romantic getaway, a family, or a solo traveler. It will not disappoint!

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the plaza are easily the best and worth the few extra dollars.

I loved this hotel. The location couldn't have been better. I was able to walk almost everywhere. I had a rental car so a gated, secured parking lot was a must for me, and this hotel had it. The room was spotless, with a fridge and new flat-screen TV. The a/c pointed right at the bed, so I was in heaven. The breakfast was typical Nicaraguan fare - eggs, gallo pinto, queso frito. All delicious. I will definitely stay here again if I'm in Granada. Highly recommend!

It would be almost impossible to have a better hotel experience. My husband, daughter and I stayed here for one week, and were so sad to leave. It felt like home.The service was out of this world, and everyone was so friendly. Great pool, A/C, breakfast, perfect location on the parque Central, and by far, the best bartender in Granada. Our room was huge, beds so comfortable, excellent bathroom, and all so immaculate. Everyone at the front desk went out of their way to help in every way. For us, the best hotel in Granada by far. Thank you, Hotel Plaza Colon for everything!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool (room 212) and was very quiet.
