“Lovely and welcoming hotel in the heart of Granada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Since my daughter (25) has been traveling in central America, my son (23) and I decided to meet up with her in Nicaragua for a different kind of Christmas. We chose Granada as our rendezvous point, and stayed in a good room with three twin beds at Hotel Patio del Malinche for three nights. We loved this hotel, with its warm and accommodating staff and beautiful courtyard (picture a small pool in the center for anyone who wants a dip, with flowering trees around it and the occasional hammock hanging along the side). My daughter wanted to give me the gift of a massage for Christmas, and the hotel recommended a woman who was out of this world great. They also allowed us to close off part of the large front entrance for an hour and a half so I could have the massage out there with total privacy but nevertheless a wonderful light streaming in from above the door.

We weren't wildly enthused about Granada itself, though I'm sure if we had made the effort we could have learned wonderful things about its rich culture. The hotel is right near the central park area and there are a lot of places to eat nearby. The streets are charming and the architecture (dating from the 1500s) is lovely. It is a great stopping place on the way to Ometepe island, where we really should have spent our entire holiday!

Our whole family enjoyed this hotel, the pool, architecture and gardens were beautiful, and the staff was trully amazing, we had to leave at 3am but they still did everything they could to make us feel comfortable, they made us coffee and provided food for our trip, they even arranged the taxi ride for us.

What a lovely little island of calm this is in the hustle and bustle of Granada. The rooms are nice, the pool and patio gorgeous and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The breakfast was amazing. We travelled through Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama by bike, but this was the best hotel we stayed in by some distance. Loved it!

Room Tip: The rooms are grouped round the pool and are all good.

The hotel really went out of its way to help us get our lost luggage back to us. They are very friendly and do everything they could to make our stay truly memorable. They are somewhat helped by being in a beautiful old town of Granada. Lovely breakfasts. Couldn't fault them on anything at all. They even helped to organise my friend getting me a birthday cake!

Well, back to Granada and Hotel " Patio del Malinche": hugs and hugs and volcano-hot welcome! Everybody there happy to have us back, this time for not less than 12 days. Again, the service was excellent and super friendly, staff with everlasting smile, great breakfast with plate of fresh fruits and natural juice (did you ever try Nicaraguan fruits? Fan-tas-tic!).
I would refuse to go somewhere else to stay in Granada, as the Patio del Malinche would offer me a beautiful patio to rest, a lovely swimming pool after a warm paseo in town, an awesome view on my beloved Volcan Mombacho, and the kindness and friendship of Lidia and Ramón, the happy owners of this superbly restored colonial house!
If visitors don't feel happy there, they should go to a psychiatrist for a complete mind check up...
One more thing: we'll be back there in 2013, of course!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first (and last) floor give you a beautiful view on giant Mombacho!

Thanks to the great staff my husband and I had a lovely visit to Granada - my second at Hotel patio el Malinche. apart from the well-appointed rooms, refreshing pool and the nice breakfast the staff are wonderful at helping arrange tours, advice on places to visit or eat out and just general know-how.
I arrived with a stomach bug I had imported from Costa Rica and everyone was so helpful as I spent a day languishing in bed. Glasses of water with lemon, fresh towels and anything I needed was not too much to ask. Thanks to all of you for letting me recover - with dignity!
I thoroughly recomend the hotel for its central location, great price and just lovely people. We'll be back!

We had excellent friendly service,Staff were helpful and friendly, from the night watchman who let us in when we arrived in the early morning. through the cleaning and wait staff , to the receptionists and owners. The hotel has an excellent location in walking distance to the centre of the town , the market, and in the other direction , to the lake. . Staff were helpful with recommendatiosn for activites, giving directions, and making reservations, and spoke excellent English. They also arranged a taxi from the airport That was very welcome as the plane arrived in Managual late at night ,not a time to negotiate public transit.
There was an excellent view of the nearby volcano . The hotel has pretty enclosed gardens and a small pool.

Room Tip: upper level rooms offer the best view.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
More than a place in the world, a house is a place in one's heart. El Patio del Malinche is more than just another hotel, it's a dream come true. Our interest to live in a different culture and to get to know new horizons took us to the ancient town of Granada. The sun-dried bricks of Granada's old walls and the hospitality of its people bewitched us. By restoring an old colonial house we relived a life of peace and serenity created by its inside patios full of history. We hope our guests will be able to revive and share with us the atmosphere of other times. We will be delighted to share our house, where life pours from every corner. ... more   less
