I spent a couple of days with my family in beautiful Granada. This was our first trip and, I'm glad to say, the hotel was a significant part of an overall wonderful experience. The room was immaculate. The one we stayed in had a lovely balcony facing the La Calzada street, the main artery of night life in Granada. The... More

This hotel was nice but not more then that. Some staff was really really nice but others where almost unfriendly. A recomendation is to not do laundry here since it is really expensive. Breakfast and The whole resturant area was great! I recomend it.

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in Immediately upon entering the Dario you know you are in for a treat. The reception and courtyard ooze colonial style. Front desk staff are helpful and knowledgable about local surroundings and acquired members of staff to help with our bags - a nice touch after a bumpy 2 hour transfer. The... More

This hotel is an architectural jewel, beautiful rooma and garden, the special events venue behind the hotel it's also beautiful and you should check it, totally worth it. We had a room with a balcony, facing the beautiful Mombacho volcano, it was just awesome, however the noise coming from the "Party Street" could be a problem for some people, in... More

– I liked this one for its historic feel. It is right on Calle de la Calzada…the party street….and this could be a problem. Don’t get a balcony room on the front unless you want to be up all night with the noise. Choose instead one of the quieter rooms in one of the back patios. FYI – beware the... More

If anyone wants to travel to a colonial city, then head to Granada. Great view, wonderful food, and a staff that would be at home in any hotel in the world. Any words more that I might say, cannot do this hotel justice.

Upon arriving in Nicaragua at Granada we went straight here and we were not disappointed! This place had great views from the balcony and the rooms had tall ceilings (on the second floor). We were greeted with welcome drinks which were so nice with the heat! The bar downstairs had 2 for 1 drinks and we loaded up on those!... More

he hotel is beautiful. It has the colonial style of Granada and wonderfil gardens. Real feel of getting the local flavour. The rooms have a good size and the bathroom was huge. We traveled with our 1 year old baby, so the big bathroom was really a plus. We had a room upstairs, it has lots of stairs, but the... More

This hotel was the first hotel of my week in Nicaragua together with my daughter. The room had a great view, as asked on the volcano, Mombacho, but the noise from the street was a bit too much. The ear stops on the night table (should have warned us...) did not help at all. Good size room and clean. Breakfast... More

Catching up on some reviews from late last year, so this is not as recent as it looks. That said, it is every bit as good as it looks. The town of Granada is almost always on the itinerary when I get to Nicaragua, and Hotel Dario is my destination of choice. We had a nice room overlooking the main... More
