This is a very scenic motel across the street from lake Nicaragua. If you are looking for a place to lay your head at a good price, clean room, and good hospitality this is the place. However, except for a nice breakfast there are no amenities, not even soap. Also, this may be a better option if you are Spanish... More

The good thing about the hotel is that the front desk lady; Maria Louisa is knowledgeable and will help out in most every situation. The staff is nice and appear to care. The negative aspects we learned was that the new owner has downsized the staff to which just a few people have to take care of everything. As a... More

Doña Maria, the manager, will do almost anything for her guests. Our agent (not the hotel) made a mistake and didn't book enough rooms for our group of 27. We arrived late at night but María immediately organized rooms in another hotel, made sure somebody would be there at the reception and even drove the guests there! The other staff... More

I stayed at El Maltese after reading excellent reviews here. It was good and bad in different aspects. The people taking care of the hotel were very nice but were not equipped in terms of language or resources. The rooms were very clean and as described. The hotel was in a very nice spot away from the craziness of the... More

I ended up at Hotel Maltese by accident with students in tow when kayak.com booked us into a hotel in Granada, Spain. We and loved it! Quiet location across from Lago Nicaragua within a 10-minute walk to the center of the colonial city. Quiet, safe, and affordable for students. Maria Luisa, the manager, and Bobby Jung, the owner, were so... More

Hotel El Maltese is the place to stay, by far, when visiting Granada. Situated across from Lake Nicaragua where a new park entices early risers for exercise in the mornings. It is the "coolest place" for two reasons: it usually has a breeze blowing onshore from the lake which is quite refreshing, and the staff is very personable and accommodating.... More
