We stayed 2 nights the end of November at Hotel Con Corazon and loved every minute. They are walking distance to the central park, lots of restaurants and attractions but far enough off that it is quieter at night. Having said that though, our second night was the start of the Conception of Mary festival and you won't be getting much sleep anywhere in Granada.
This is a very charming hotel. The rooms are a little dark but are very clean and have a/c. The bathrooms are very spacious with hot water. The wifi only works in the lobby but was having problems when we were there and was very infrequent. The staff would happily reset it for you but the provider was working on the power poles so at times there wasn't a lot they could do.
We did have to switch rooms our first night cause the a/c unit sprayed all over the bed and us. Luckily, there was rooms to switch too and the next room was just as nice as the previous room.
The courtyard and pool are beautiful. The pool was very refreshing after a day walking or riding around the hot city.
The breakfast is amazing! Granola, juice, yogurt, eggs and the best bread we had in Central America. Delicious!
The staff are outstanding and speak English. I cannot say enough good things about Dennis. The service is so good there that Dennis actually walked me down the street to find a tailor that would repair my only swimsuit that came unthreaded during my 3 week trip in Costa Rica. He translated the entire thing, it was fixed within minutes and it only cost a $1.00.
The front desk staff set up a bike tour for us with an english speaking guide and it was worth every penny. Wow, did we see a lot! We went thru every church, went along the lake and thru central park. You will get to see areas of Granada you wouldn't normally see and we've been there before.
And the best part is the money goes to help education.
