“Super, great room, and great staff”
Reviewed 24 September 2008

My mom and I went to this year to Nicaragua and spent 4 days at Hotel Plaza Colon. The rooms, and the property is nice. The staff is so kind and helpful. Juan at the front desk was so helpful in making arragements for volcano tours and dinner recomendations. I would recomend this hotel, it is directly on the central park which makes it an ideal location.

  • Liked — It was clean and rooms were a nice size.

The Hotel Plaza Colon is a lovely hotel right on the main square of Granada. Though one of the "higher end" hotels, it is still a great deal for the price. Highly recommended!

I have stayed in many hotels in Granada and this is the best by far. Room, food, service, and location would make this a great hotel to stay in. The room price was also something that would make me return in the future.

  • Liked — Everything in my room was according my greatest expectation

We stayed at one of the rooms facing the park, very comfortable room with a huge balcony that we enjoyed very much. Very clean and neat, the staff and management are very hospitable. Highly recommend it.

Our son, Matt, who spent 2 years in Nicaragua in the Peace Corps told us about this new and very clean hotel in the classic city of Granada. My wife and I weren't disappointed in the least. The hotel manager, Maria Isabel, was very gracious as was the entire staff. We had a balcony room overlooking the square which was great for sight seeing especially around "cocktail hour" time. The rooms were spacious, beds were comfortable and the air-conditioning forced us to use blankets at night. Our experience at this fine hotel and the surrounding restaurants was every bit as enjoyable as Morgans Rock where we stayed another three nights. It's simply very nice and the staff couldn't have been more helpful............even the Budget car rental girl was very cordial and reliable.

Normally I would write "a charming old building on the edge of the city square, nicely renovated as a boutique hotel 3.5 stars or 4 stars".

Except this place deserves five stars. Why, not because of the building (although it is charming) or the fact that it was by far the cleanest hotel I have seen in Central America (much cleaner than the five star western chain hotels in Costa Rica for example).

It is the service. This place made everything so easy. The normal problems just did not exist. I had paid in Cash (with a special cash rate) and when I had problems with my bank they refunded my cash and allowed me to pay on credit card without any extra fee. They gave me my breakfast before I checked in because I was leaving before breakfast the next day. All in all the staff were amazing.

Add that to a charming building with clean modern rooms and a great location and you have a winner.

  • Liked — Clean modern rooms, lovely old building with great service
  • Disliked — Business facilities were a bit limited but in the location this is by no means unusual.

We have stayed in plenty of hotels around Nicaragua, and Plaza Colon was simply one of the best hotels in the country and the best of Granada. Its superb location, comfortable rooms and great people make it a obligatory stay in town. The fine details and craftsmanship of its design reflect the high quality of the place, and of the stay. One appreciates staying in well mantained place, with an environment that replicates very well the feeling of culture an tradition one seeks outside its doors.
