“Excellent hotel in good location”

The rooms were comfortable and clean with thoughtful decor, the courtyard pools are a nice touch. A great location for exploring Granada. My experience at this hotel was pleasant & enjoyable. A great destination.

I recently had the pleasure to stay seven nights at Hotel Colonial in Granada, Nicaragua while on mission serving the people of the area. My team made up of 14 members were treated to very clean rooms, hot water, a/c, and a staff that went out of their way to make us all feel welcome and at home. This hotel is in a perfect location, close to the center of town. We all felt secure and were treated with the utmost care while there. The front desk staff helped out greatly with restaurant recommendations and additional help in giving us directions within the area. We will definitely stay there again and would recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone for one night or many. You will be blessed to stay in this fabulous property in a beautiful city. Thanks to the owners and the staff. You make the hotel what it is!!!!

Dear Joey

It was a big pleasure having you, your friends and your wonderful young people at our hotel. We did say it every day again: if these youngsters mainly represent our future, future will be a good one.

Hope to see you all one day again.

In the meantime I send you kind regards and lots of good wishes

Only stayed at the Hotel Colonial for 3 nights but I wish it was longer. Rooms are nicely furnished, very comfortable beds. Breakfast is awesome, very tasty, lots of fresh fruit too. Though small, the pools are nice and refreshing, lots of lounge chairs to sit in the sun. Location is great, right near the main square and lots of restaurants, as well as some big banks. Staff were friendly, managers were always out and about asking if everything was okay.

Would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone staying in Grenada.

My family and I stayed there this week. This is the second time we have stayed there. We will only stay there in the future. The hotel is cozy, clean, the rooms are beautiful and very traditional. The kids loved swimming in the two pools. We also love to eat breakfast in the restaurant. It is near the plaza in Granada. We also took a tour to a volcano and enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide Julian was great.

I stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed the excellent location, access to many varied restaurants, service from all levels of staff and peaceful ambience---2 pools, beautiful landscaping--you feel like you are in a forest, etc. It's a gorgeous hotel! The managers are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. I enjoyed sitting by the pools reading and relaxing aftr a busy day of walking around and touring. Even though the hotel is very close to the main plaza so you would think it would be noisy, it wasn't at all. In fact, it was very peaceful and once you are inside the hotel/courtyard you feel like you are miles away from all the crowds. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel guide, Julian, is very helpful and a friendly guy so I recommend the various tours offered by the hotel. The room itself was very comfortable and elegant. I loved it here and would definitely stay here again next time I visit Granada. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: I think any room would be a fine one but I enjoyed staying in the back near the smaller pool.

Stayed here as family of 4 (girls 11 and 14). Really nice rooms, lots of space and great beds and bathrooms. Internet OK too. Location great for walking around Grenada and restaurants. Girls loved the 2 small pools and 4 poster beds. The hotel staff were kind and helpful. We found the hotel quiet and calm even though close to the main square. There is a chocolate museum a block away where you can learn about, and make chocolate - must do if you like chocolate !!
