“So quiet so nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

What an amazing experience. My wife, 2yo son and I stayed one night and wished we planed more time in Granada. The staff all spoke english well and was nothing but helpful with all our needs. Had a late dinner in the restaurant, the food was amazing and so inexpensive... Will be back next year for a much longer trip.

I am a business traveler from Spain and stayed only one night - a weekend escape from Managua - but it was unforgetable. Great property, great staff & attention and the setting in the surreal city of Granada is unbeatable. And don´t miss the jewelry made by the owner and for sale at the hotel: the best buy in Nicaragua.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the street

The service and atmosphere at La Gran Francia. I would highly recommend this hotel and its great restaurant. Wonderful central location and yet still quiet. Normally conference food can be dull and unpredictable but every lunch was delicous and included three courses.

La Gran Francia is a beautiful hotel in the center of all the action in Granada. We had a very pleasant stay here. The rooms were nicely air-conditioned (key to maintaining sanity in Nicaragua) and it was close to the lake as well as the center of town and a multitude of night-life. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed for six nights at La Gran Francia for a conference and enjoyed every minute of the experience even if it was for work!

Best staff in the world: I worked with the hotel staff each and every day from sun up to sun down. They were ALWAYS pleasant with a smile on their faces, getting to know me personally and asking me what I needed, if anything, when they noticed by my facial expression or body language that something was needed. They truly are the BEST team I've ever worked with so if you go, please tip them generously. They are humble and hard working and deserve it!

Convenient location: It is right on the central park and therefore close to everything to enjoy night or day. Only a few blocks away from the best restaurants and nightlife available in Nicaragua.

It is clean: Staff clean top to bottom all day long. You could probably eat off the floor and not get sick.

It is beautiful: High ceilings, giant wooden doors and antique sculptures and paintings reveal it is an historical treasure of colonial Central America.

You will NOT regret staying here!

Room Tip: Rooms towards the courtyard may be quieter. I was on street side but only one night (Sunday surprisi...

How can anyone have a poor opinion of this place? The staff is great, the atmosphere is soothing. They have a small jetted pool, A/C in the rooms. Ours had a balcony that we used quite often, and having the restaurant on the other side of the street was great. We're going back next year we're in Nicaragua.
