If you wake up at the Hotel La Bocona, you're doing something right in life. Utterly charming - the rooms live up to every photograph: impossibly high ceilings, inviting, elegant surroundings and a charming garden courtyard for breakfast. The staff was great and arranged drivers for us - including the 4 am drive to the Managua airport. If you're worried... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014 and loved every minute. The hotel is perfectly located within Granada--just 2 blocks from the central square, but at enough of a distance that it is nice and quiet throughout the day and night. GIANT rooms with A/C available, everything is immaculately clean, and the entire place has an air of... More

We spent 2 nights at La Bocona with our 2 children, ages 3 and 5. Our flight got in late at night, and we were picked up by Miguel at the airport which was greatly appreciated after a long day of travelling with small children. Our daughters loved the hotel and the gorgeous beds with their mosquito netting, and the... More

Thank you for your review It looks like you have never been in a colonial mansion before When a room faces the street there is room for window....safety reasons and also building regulations you dont need no one to peep thru your room. The breakfast is nor regular....is Nicaraguan style!! More

A converted colonial villa with six spacious rooms, antique furnishings, and a perfectly central location in Granada. After a long day of sightseeing and navigating through the chaos in the city, it's great to be able to walk a few blocks back to the hotel and recharge.

It is very noisy. The hotel is located right in the middle of the city. There are no traffic lights in Granada, so the locals honk their horns at intersections to alert others. Even with the fan and AC on, we could not get much sleep. In addition, the bathrooms are separate, which is clearly stated, but you need to... More

This is a great place with a lot of history. It’s nice and quiet and located just a couple of blocks from the main square. Romantic rooms with four post beds and high vaulted ceilings. Miguel, who manages the place, is super friendly and helpful. I wish we had stayed longer.
