“Very good hotel in Granada”
Reviewed 4 January 2011

- Nice pool
- Good complimentary breakfast
- Helpful staff
- Centrally located on the major square
- Spotty Internet unfortunately
- Clean rooms with effective air conditioners

Only complaint is that it can be loud at night, so bring ear plugs.

A great place to stay. Super nice staff. A little loud outside, but hey, it was the week between Christmas and new years.

The previous review (lehigh98) is spot on. I'll just add this...

By far the best hotel service we received in Nicaragua. Staff were eager to help us find our destinations (shops, restaurants, museums, etc.), and especially eager to practice their (nearly fluent) English. Rooms provided a cozy, authentic colonial feel.

I've deducted a couple points for the following: the location is IDEAL for exploring Granada by foot, carriage or cab... assuming that you do not mind the street noise. For a couple from the country like ourselves, ear plugs and white noise were a necessity (which, of course, we brought along).

We reserve 5 stars for only the very best hotels.

We stayed at the Hotel Granada as part of an independent nine day trip within Nicaragua.

Although we have travelled all over the world and throughout Central and South America, we were a bit hesitant about what to expect in Nicaragua; however, our expectations were vastly exceeded at all levels throughout our trip.

Specifically in regard to the Hotel Granada, the Hotel is a gorgeously restored building. In fact, it is so beautifully appointed and designed that we coveted it for ourselves- if we were to own a private residence in this region we would want it to be designed similar to the Hotel Granada.

The hotel location in Granada is ideal and despite many travel books suggesting that Granada is a one day destination, we felt compelled to stay three nights.

THe employees are wonderfully helpful and very pleasant. It is obvious that the hotel is well managed.

We realize that other Hotels are rated slightly higher in TripAdvisor; however, I would be surprised if any other Hotels were superior. We would stay in Hotel Plaza Colon if we visit Granada again (which we very well may do)

Everything's almost said in those previous reviews, but maybe couple of notices.

The location is perfect, breakfast is spectacular and the premises truly exudes 19th century fashion and style. Our room was definitely high quality even in European standards, though little bit more daylight would have been nice (the window was quite small and towards a narrow steet). The staff is very helpful and friendly and they speak english also.

My stay at this hotel was amazing. The staff were what made it exceptional. I miss you so much Danilo, Carlos, Nelson and everyone else. I had a room with a balcony over-looking the park and it was so relaxing sitting there watching the world go by. I could not be happier with my room!...so spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was amazing...a buffet breakfast to die for. There is no doubt in my mind that I will return!!!
