Everything about this stay was quite good. If you'd want to be right at the doorstep of Granada's "in-scene" this hotel is perfectly located right at the "Calzada" Street where the cultural and night scene is. Plus it has one of the nicest colonial style looks around. Our room was right across from the gym and we had a nice... More

Hotel Dario has an excellent location in the middle of the action in Granada. The rooms have good air conditioning and well-appointed bathrooms (no stall showers). Most of the rooms are small, however, and face the interior of the hotel. Those interior rooms have relatively little privacy because people walk right by the room within a few feet of the... More

We stayed here two nights before heading home after our time in Ometepe and San Juan del Sur. Great location, right on the block with restaurants/bars. Clean rooms, nice breakfast. The front desk was good with directions to some of the spots we wanted to visit.

The hotel was very peaking to the eye at first, although our rooms air conditioning did not work. The coolest the room got was 80. I complained once and they said they fixed it. Clearly they did not. Also I went to buy 3 waters at the desk, and when realizing they were over 5$, I said forget it because... More

It is a great hotel, located on a main street, Calzada. If you like night-life, Latin music and vibrance, this place is for you. The staff is very friendly and service is good. Also, Hotel is very reasonably priced.

Cross the threshold with your luggage into the Dario and you can imagine yourself as one of those truly privileged travelers of the colonial era. You might want to indulge yourself in this fantasy for a while, after check-in, and explore the beautiful courtyards - 2 of them! - the pool and a street side cafe that comprise the premises...

I absolutely loved this hotel. It's right in the center of a street filled with restaurants, gelato and nightlife. Walking distance from the popular church and offers exceptional views of the volcanos, as well as the city. They have a quaint pool and it was always heated when I used it. Their rooms have elevated ceilings, tall doors, air conditioning,... More

This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Granada. The building is stunning with 2 centre courts one featuring a lovely poolside garden. The service was impecible and everyone was so friendly. It's conviniently located to the local market, a must to visit. While the theft challenges, Hotel Dario takes all the neessary steps. The property is safe with... More

The 100-year-old Hotel Dario oozes tropical Colonial charm. A beautifully-planted courtyard makes you want to put on a seersucker suit, don a Panama hat and sit down to write a novel. A second smaller courtyard with a pool is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a cigar and a glass of Flor de Cana. It's centrally-located in Grenada, near... More
