We recently stayed in the Plaza Colon and enjoyed the experience. We arrived in the midst of some trouble caused by a taxi strike and the hotel staff went out of their way to make us feel secure and allowed us to change our booking without charge. We came back to Granada at the end of our holiday in Nicaragua when the situation was more stable and had a good time staying at the Plaza Colon.

The hotel has a fantastic location (right on the main square) and in my view is nicer than the other hotels in that part of town. The quality of the rooms is good (flat screen tv, good AC, hardwood floors etc.). The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helped us organise various tours and activities.

Granada is a lovely city and this hotel is the place to stay!

This hotel is excellent in all ways. Decided to go to Granada for our birthdays vacation and get married at the same time. This was the icing on the cake. The wedding party was very small, but the staff, and especially Srta.Maria Isabel, the manager, went out of their way to arrange everything and make our stay so romantic and memorable. The ceremony was held at dusk around the courtyard pool which they had decorated with candles and white flowers. Srta.Maria Isabel had arranged a hairdresser, lawyer to perform the ceremony, wedding cake, buffet, champagne, wine, photographer, and musicians. A great vacation and a wonderful place to get married.

My family enjoyed the 2010 Easter holiday weekend in Granada, Nicaragua. Our stay at Hotel Plaza Colon greatly contributed to the enjoyment of our three-day stay. The room was spacious and nicely appointed (204) and overlooked the central square (plaza). The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. In particular, we appreciated the "customer care" provided by Freddy at the front desk. He attentively arranged for our tours and transportation. We had no problems with any of the arrangements and our drivers for the tours always arrived on time. The interior of the hotel is lovely, particularly the interior court area surrounding the swimming pool. With such a fair room rate, we highly recommend the Hotel Plaza Colon as not only a great place to stay but also as a great value.

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful, stylish and elegant. The staff are extremely friendly and accomodating. I appreciated the free internet near the pool. My husband used the pool every day. Breakfast had a lot of choice and served by the pool. Our room was gorgeous and decorated with flowers and petals for honeymoon. We loved the balcony and the minibar in the evenings. This was the best aspect. We were overlooking the plaza and could see the comings and goings every evening while reading and having a drink. The location was ideal for exploring Granada. We left very eary on our last day (4am!) and the reception arrage for juice, fruit and croissants. I would recomend this hotel unreservedly.

This lovely hotel, located on the central square in Granada, is clean and beautifully decorated. If the heat of Nicaragua bothers you, the super-strength air conditioning in the guest rooms will be a delightful respite.

Beautiful interior courtyards, nice breakfast buffet, polite and helpful staff. Our room, on the upper level, had a spacious balcony with a view of the Cathedral across the central square. The one drawback was the lighting in the room, which was quite dim, making reading difficult.

There are so many wonderful things about the city of Granada, not the least of which is the Hotel Plaza Colon. Spacious rooms, beautifully appointed and new, the hotel is like an oasis. The staff is the second best thing about the hotel. So attentive, knowledgeable, and willing to help. One of our traveling companions was not feeling well and stayed behind while the rest of us went out to dinner. I mentioned it to the front desk staff just as an aside. After we left, one of them went out to find a pharmacy open late and bought my friend what he needed to settle his stomach. So thoughtful! The third best thing about the Hotel Plaza Colon is the the lovely wine bar attached to the lobby! Of course the kids in our group probably loved the pool best...

I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. The service and friendliness from the staff at the Hotel Plaza Colon was superior to just about any accommodation I have ever experienced. Even if the rooms at the Hotel Plaza Colon were sub-par, which they are not, I would strongly encourage a stay at the Hotel Plaza Colon. Lovely, modern design sense with comfortable rooms. Also- very nice complimentary breakfast buffet.
