“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

I had spent several months in Granada so when I decided to bring a group it was an easy choice. The Plaza Colon has the best location, the best breakfast and the best staff in the whole city ! The rooms are so cool and spacious and we loved all being on the ground floor, just steps from the pool. The manager Joan was a pleasure to work with and every member of the staff was friendly and accommodating. I couldn't recommend it more.

One of the great assets of Hotel Plaza Colon is it's concierge, Virginia, who is in charge of guest relations. Virginia helped plan the whole vacation and Hotel Plaza Colon is a world class hotel and a highlight of the trip. Excellent buffet breakfast, efficient and professional staff and room 204 overlooking the plaza gives you an action view of the sights and sounds of the Nicaraguan people.

Room Tip: We liked the room with a balcony facing the plaza but naturally they are more noisy. The room number...

We rented 4 rooms on a family vacation and everyone not only liked the rooms but the breakfasts were great. The staff were very attentive to all of our needs. The location in the center of Granada cannot be beat. We will stay there again on our next trip to Grenada.

I've stayed in plenty of hotels, but the cleanliness of this one amazed me. The workers were constantly cleaning, even caring for the plants and winding the vine up the post. The breakfast was fresh and delicious with a wonderful buffet.

I'm so glad the Hotel Plaza Colon is the one we chose.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room with 2 queen beds, although I thought they looked like kings. The room was...

We enjoyed our three night stay here - it is an old colonial building facing the main square and Cathedral and as such is well placed for everything in the beautiful town of Granada. Inside, there is a small but very attractive swimming pool at the centre of a lovely courtyard - a real oasis of calm bringing relief from the hustle and bustle of the town. The excellent breakfasts are served here. There is no restaurant, but there is a coffee shop serving cakes which is physically part of the hotel, though not owned by it.
Our room was large and comfortable, overlooking a side street just off the square, but unfortunately the balcony was not accessible as it needed repair.
There were a couple of 'niggles' which led to us taking off one star - on one of the days our rooms were not cleaned until very late afternoon; and in the evening (about 9.00 pm) it was not possible to get a cup of coffee i.e. coffe is simply not available - we were just advised to go to a cafe across the square. However, it was a very good place to stay overall - the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
One of the issues which some other reviews have mentioned is street noise in some rooms - we are very sensitive to this when travelling but we did not find it a problem - you have to bear in mind that if you stay in the centre of a town, on the main square, there will undoubtedly be some noise, but actually it was surprisingly quiet between about 11.00pm and around 6.00 am and was never particularly bad, despite our stay coinciding with the final night of a festival.

Dear Dave,

Thank you for such a detailed review of our property! I am very glad to know that you enjoyed our facilities and service.

I appreciate your feedback about the 'niggles' you experienced on your stay. In general, housekeeping services the rooms between 9AM and 2PM; by your comment, I understand your room might have been cleaned on the latter end of that period. I am very sorry if this presented an inconvenience for you and your wife, I wish you had let us know your discontent while still on the premises, as we would have found a way to make it up to you (even though the cleaning schedule is disclosed in the information booklet in the room, we strive to make our guests happy).

I hope we have the opportunity to host you again in the future, if we do, we will make sure that those 'niggles' are gone and you leave satisfied. :)

Warm regards from La Gran Sultana,

Maria Isabel Canton
General manager

We stayed 3 nights in room 202, which as you look from the square, is in the left hand corner of the building.The large balcony is ideal for relaxing in the late afternoon, enjoying a cocktail, whilst sitting in a rocking chair, watching the people below in the square. Also fascinating to watch the gathering of hundreds of birds in the trees in the square, which happens at dusk each day - the noise is amazing!
All the staff are very helpful and everyone has a smile, particularly Carlos, who always seemed to be there at the appropriate time to offer whatever assistance you required.
The rooms are a good size and we had 2 Queen sized beds, good wardrobe space and a fridge. 2 complementary bottles of water were provided on arrival, but were not replenished during our stay.
The bathroom is small, but perfectly adequate and the shower works well
Breakfast, served by the pool is very good and we did enjoy a swim whilst we were there as well.
The only downside is that the birds make a great deal of noise at dawn as well as dusk and the banging of the Cathedral bell is a bit irritating at 7am, but it's worth it for the upsides.
Granada is a lovely city and we thoroughly recommend both the city and the Plaza Colon. If you are looking for an excellent guide, try Careli Tours and ask for Elvis Madrigal, who certainly made our time in Nicaragua a fantastic experience. He takes care of anything and everything you need, has a great sense of humour coupled with an in depth knowledge of his country and, like his namesake can sing and play the guitar as well.

Our second time to Granada. We were able to book this room with credit card points. Very nice and luxurious hotel centrally located in Granada. It is walking distance to most everything. Very large and clean rooms with comfortable beds. The room had a safe and fridge. The hotel had a restaurant, bar and pool which we did not have time to use. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel if it fits your budget.
