I have stayed twice for two nights each time. The hotel is noisy if you want to be on the street front because it is directly across/above from the Irish Pub and lots of night time action but I asked for street front both times anyway. I find it fun. The rest of the hotel is quiet. The restaurant is excellent but the coffee shop is terrible. Terrible service and stale espresso. The restaurant is awesome! The staff both times have been really great! One guy working the front desk day shift not so friendly but the women at the desk are great and the security guard is very helpful. Late one arrival night he took me to the internet room, turned on the computer, got me water, turned on the A/C and checked to make sure I was able to get online. (They have wireless as well.) The swimming pool is small but clean and nice little garden surrounding it with a waterfall into the pool. All in all it is a nice place and my second choice in Granada, but Hotel Plaza Colon is my number one place to stay.

I did not stay there, but ate at the hotel and enjoyed coffee at 6 AM several times...The Calzada can be very hectic, with too many street vendors, it was a pleasure that this establishment has two excellent dining opportunities; one formal...the other with coffee and light food .. The service was attentive in a beautiful setting

Wow! We stayed at hotel colon but went here for dinner, i was blown away by service and food. We live in costa rica and this is the best dinner we have had! The service was incredible! Our server was so on top of it ! Yet he didn't bother us like most over eager servers do.. Food was perfection and after lobster, filet , apps, wine and kids food the bill was only 60bucks.... And it was so good! The architecture was awesome, the courtyards were beautiful! We hit areselve for not staying here! Hotel colOn didn't even have a restaurant...

Yes, the hotel is located centrally, although we found it quite noisy due to being right on the street.

It was the treatment from the management that took me for a spin!

We had a little misunderstanding about somethings and instead of working it out in the office, as I pointed out numerous of times, the manager decided to deal with it in front of all the guests that were sitting in the social area as he screamed and yelled at us with pure arrogance and complete disregard that everyone was privy to his behavior.

This is definitely not a hotel I would every recommend staying at!

Vanica, Director Comercial at Hotel Dario, responded to this reviewResponded 7 November 2011

Regarding the negative review "management issues" recently made, we would clarify that the person who made this comment has never been a guest of Hotel Dario.
She visited The Hotel to Know and promote it and also publicize in her website. In appreciation of his interest we offered a "discount" to dinner in our restaurant. NEVER offered a complimentary dinner as stated in previous correspondence exchanged with the lady .The lady pretended not to pay the bill that was generated by your dinner and your family as it was accompanied by her husband and their two sons and disgust arises when asked for clarification.
Fortunately, those who do us the honor of choosing the Hotel Dario during his stay in Granada can attest to the quality of our facilities and special of the warmth and spirit of service that characterizes our staff. Take this opportunity to thank those who also do us the honor to take a minute of your time to share in Tripadvisor the result of his experience at Hotel Dario.

Sincerely.
Hotel Dario.

After 10 hours on the bus from Costa Rica...Hotel Dario was a welcome change. The staff were very helpful. The pool was not great...but I wasn't in Granada to hang out at a hotel pool anyway. You can't beat the location. We really enjoyed our few days at the hotel.

We stayed at the Hotel Dario one night and everything was awesome. The room was spacious and very clean. The best thing about this hotel is definitely the staff. They are all well trained, very professional, and most speak English.
Staying at this hotel was the best part of our trip to Nicaragua.

It is the first time I have visit hotel Dario, but not the last. It has a cosy atmosphere and the prices is quite attractive. It is a wonderful colonial hotel and it has the best location in town. Right on the Calzada. The staff is very nice and they speak in general English. The rooms are big and clean and everything works. They also have a very nice restaurant and cafe, both with good food and good location. Their menu card is quite advanced and the service is fast and good.
