Staying at Hotel Xalteva was an experience we enjoyed immensely. The pool and courtyard are so lovely. A beautiful breakfast is served poolside by friendly and accommodating staff. We were there for a week, so rented only a bedroom which was very nice. We looked at some of the suites with full kitchens and were very impressed with their charm... More

A delight, not a surprise! The website and staff email communication said it all. Well, almost all. Friends had recently stayed twice, highly recommending Xalteva. Purpose-built in 2007 as a boutique condo hotel incorporating colonial Nicaraguan architectural features, immersed in an authentic central Granada neighbourhood. Manager Melissa has groomed an exceptionally pleasant, informative and helpful staff. The premises are small,... More

We stayed at the Hotel Xalteva last week and our expectations were more than exceeded. We had the # 1 unit with 2bedrooms and 2 baths. It was spacious, clean, comfortable in every way.

When we booked in at the reception and looked at our allocated rooms, we were disappointed at the size of the rooms and bed - "deluxe queen rooms"? However, we were offered a 2 bedroom suite which had a kitchen and lounge area for a little extra money. This proved to be a better option because it gave us space... More

When you walk through the gates of this hotel it looks wonderful. It is absolutely spotlessly clean in all areas. The management and staff are a true asset to the hotel, they were great. The rooms were deluxe queen rooms, but only if the queen was very small and not very fussy. These are some of the smallest bedrooms and... More

We just completed a month long stay in Granada and could not be happier with the both the location and accommodation of Hotel Xalteva. It was the right distance from downtown, the lake, food markets, the "real" market, etc. that can all be walked(or jogged!) to + it afforded us the chance to see what's going on in many parts...
