“Lovely Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Arriving in Granada was a pleasant surprise and encountering Tim and Andreas at their enchanting boutique was lovely. They were warm and accommodating and there was always someone around to attend to your needs. The location was convenient and within walking distance of everything. If they did not know the answer they would find out! Thank you Tim & Andreas for your hospitality!

Room Tip: We had a wonderful rooftop balcony.

We love love love this boutique hotel! We have stayed here on all our 7 trips to Granada.

The owners, Tim and Andres, are friendly, helpful and fun! The breakfast is amazing and the staff so sweet.

The rooms are comfortable and big with all European/American standard beds and pillows/bedding. So you will get a great night's rest and wake up fresh as a daisy! ;-)

Prices are very reasonable and the main area is beautiful with a tropical garden and fountain. Very centrally located and close to everything.

Must stay here!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing, but the rooms with balcony are extra special.

Wonderful little hotel just steps from everything in Granada. This was our first stop after arriving in Nicaragua. The quiet location, comfortable room and welcoming staff made for a perfect first day. Personal attention from the owner is also a big plus. We also had a large haul of goods with us bound for a remote village and staff were helpful in unloading/storing/reloading the pick up truck.

We stayed at La Islita a week ago. La Islita is a great boutique hotel situated close to the action in Granada. The proprietors, Tim and Andreas, along with their terrific staff, are perfect hosts and take great pleasure in their city and making one's time in Granada memorable. From dining suggestions to day-time excursions (along with complete logistical support) their advice was spot on. Stay at La Islita if you want the "personal touch" that you won't find in a larger establishment.

Michael and staff were very helpful and friendly. They arranged a taxi day trip for us to Masaya and for our departure to Ometepe. We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2014 and out of the 7 nights we spent in Nicaragua, this was the best place we stayed. The beds were very comfortable, huge hot water shower, quiet, AC & TV, upstairs terrace with a great view. Walking distance to the calzada and main square. Great breakfast in the morning!

Tim and Andres welcomed us so warmly, it felt like they were opening their home to us personally. It's a small, intimate and very lovely oasis In the midst of a very lovely town. Staff is excellent, rooms are very comfortable and Tim and Andres provided excellent guidance, recommendations and support as we ventured out to explore "their" world. Thank you thank you for making our stay such a great experience. Also thanks to excellent staff, Virginia, Pamela, Maykel and Esteven!!!! Muchas gracias,!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

A couple of us stayed here in late February and we all loved it. The lobby is beautiful and the rooms are a close second. The building is very well maintained, and in great shape(I'm thinking original tile). The staff was great, fluent in English, breakfast was good. The location is 4 blocks from central park, so if you don't mind a little walking it's a great location.
The beds are very comfortable, the a/c and hot water were very nice. They even included a sound machine to block out the neighbors rooster that liked to crow early.
