“Perfectly situated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Right on the main square, close to all the main sights, spacious rooms (mine was at the back of the hotel and quiet) and a nice terrace where you can sit for breakfast or with a drink and watch the activity in the sqaure.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel (not fronting the sqaure) are quiet.

The hotel Alhambra was the only hotel in Nicaragua we stayed in so we cannot compare it with other hotels. We liked it a lot, not just because of the market place right in front of the entrance. The hotel has got charm. The lobby, the rooms, the interior, simply everything with its colonial style. Breakfast is good, typical Tico style or western style, you can choose.We tried the restaurant once and were very pleased with the service and the food as well.The staff doesn´t speak English very well so you better try Spanish, but they are very friendly. Only thing that was not so good is that there are a lot of beggers, mostly children, who try to get some money or food while you are trying to have dinner or breakfast on the terrace. Giving them what they want (and certainly need) doesn´t keep them from going on begging, so the staff has to send them away in an extremely rude tone. That was quite sad to watch but you can´t help those things in such a poor country.If you can take this, the Alhambra should be your choice.

worth a journey, in a well maintained colonial building with many nice details and very compfy rooms. Pool in the patio, during the day mostly in the shade to refresh form a day full of Granada´s impressions. Friedly staff, a/c internet café in the house.

Best place to stay in Granada. Rooms are big and clean. The staff is very helpful.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back of the hotel because it can get loud in the park at times.

Only stayed one night, our last night in Nicaragua. The location is superb. The lobby is elegant. The rocking chairs facing the park are a great place to meet people & people watch. The room was adequate, nothing special, clean & functional but not luxurious. As with all the hotels where we stayed, there is a shower but no bath tub, & no blow dryer in the room. There was TV (never watched) & A/C (noisy unit), a safe, & adequate space to hang clothes. The beds were comfortable. The staff we interacted with were all very pleasant, especially the porter who checked us in who had the gracious welcoming style of Mr. Roark ("Fantasy Island"). Maybe 50% spoke English. In the morning we overslept & needed a quick breakfast, & the restaurant threw together delicious omelets in record time. Courteous service. Overall I'd gladly stay here any time & give it a high grade. We paid $75 for our room (2 beds, interior on 1st floor).

We were very disappointed with this hotel especially after paying the high price. The room that we stayed in was dirty, and noisy. We had planned to stay a week but moved out after the first night of not sleeping because the bed was not comfortable, there was a noisy pump outside that came on frequently and everytime the air conditioning came on it beeped. We moved to a smaller, more comfortable quite hotel.

Room Tip: Check trip advisor for another hotel

I had never been to Nicaragua before, and after staying at Hotel Alhambra and experiencing Granada I so want to go back and see more. The hotel is beautiful. It has been restored and maintained to perfection. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is centrally located on Central Park so you can basically walk to anything that you might want to see in the city. The pool is located inside within a garden area and at night the staff light beautiful candles everywhere to great you when come in. This is a beautiful gem in one of the oldest cities in Central America. If this was in New York, Chicago, Toronto or Montreal it would be over $250 a night, but for less than $100 a night, it ranks as one of the nicest places I have stayed.
