Hotel con Corazon

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 23, 2009

I recently stayed here while traveling through Nicaragua with my boyfriend. We arrived in Granada late at night and found a very upscale hotel to stay in. They were charging almost a 100 dollars to stay there a night. When we told them them that we were looking for a more economical place to stay, and they recommended Hotel con Corazon. Luckily for us, there was availability and we booked the hotel without even seeing it. How lucky were we!? The hotel looked the same as the first one we had arrived at, and cost a considerable amount less. The room was air conditioned and had cable television. It was really close to the center of town where all of the restaurants and nightlife is located. The breakfast (which is included in the price of the hotel stay) was excellent and everything was really fresh -- I highly recommend the smoothies. And we were so impressed by the fact that this hotel is a nonprofit and gives money to educating children in Nicaragua! I can't recommend this hotel enough!

We stayed three nights at Hotel con Corozon during a whirlwind trip to Granada and area, dragging along with us two small children aged 5 and 3, and we couldn't have found a better place to rest our weary bodies.
Travelling with small children is not always easy, nor are they always welcomed by hotels or other guests. But the staff at Hotel con Corozon went out of their way to make us feel welcome and even brought in a pint-sized child's bed -- with matching bedspread -- so we would each have a comfortable night's rest.
Staff were also very helpful in offering age-appropriate sight-seeing suggestions and assisting in making reservations when and where needed. They also provided a laptop computer on loan so we could research places we wanted to see and let family back home know we were in good hands.
Although there is no parking on site, the hotel pointed us to an inexpensive safe parking lot only steps from their front door.
The minimalist decore is pleasing; the rooms spic and span and very homey. It is right in keeping with their theme of working with the community and creating a better future for the children of Nicaragua.
The rates for this new lodging , which includes a heaping and healthy breakfast -- are also reasonable -- so reasonable they bound to go up as word spreads about this brand new hotel.
So get there soon because this place is destined to become one the must-stay places in Granada.

This was a wonderful hotel to come to on our Day 2 of our first trip to Nicaragua. Fantastic! The hotel helps non-profits in the area with its proceeds. It has been open less than 6 months. Marcel (one of the owners) is a great guy, building this hotel over the last 2 years and bringing the dream to fruition. We felt so good staying here knowing that this hotel is catalyst for change, a giver. The hotel is comfortable, inviting and charming. We loved sitting on the balcony reading, or eating meals in the outdoor dining area. The pool is just the right size, clean and everyone working there is HELPFUL. Our Spanish was rather limited, so we often needed help in getting cabs, understanding directions, questions etc. Everyone (especially Alfredo & Martin) were there to support our journey. This was my first time in a Third World country. I had some adjusting to make and Hotel Con Corazon was the perfect place for me to be. The rooms are basic, but very clean and comfortable. All my needs were met and even beyond. We stayed there 3 nights when we arrived and at the end of our 24 day trip we spent the last 3 nights there. This should tell you how much we enjoyed our visit and staying here. You won't be sorry you chose this place.

I just got back from one night at the Hotel Con Corazon with a group of my friends and we all wish we could have stayed longer. It has a rustic feel to it with an attention to detail. We stayed in the 'family room' and it was just perfect. All the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The location is perfect. It is exactly 2 blocks from the town square. Thus you can walk to everything but not be near the noise.

We had to leave very early in the morning to make our flight. Thus we had to checkout the night before. As we left the next morning, the security guard handed each of us carryout breakfast. We never even asked for it. That gesture in a nutshell summarizes the warmth and charm of this hotel.

Just returned from Hotel Con Corozon knowing that I will return sometime soon. The gracious owners from Holland made us feel so much at home. But it was the attention to detail in this brand new property that put it to the top of my list. It had sparkling new bathrooms, with custom tiles, attractive decor throughout, new silent AC, great TV with many stations, wifi, sparkling pool, pool towels, large open areas for relaxing and mingling, and a bar. A huge and delicious breakfast with cappuchino(yum!!) was included in the room rate(as was the tax) and 3 course reasonably priced dinners were offered 5 nights a week. Great staff. And the best? It's a non profit enterprise offering funding for various educational opportunities in Nicaragua. Best value in Granada. $50!

This is a new hotel in Granada, a wonderful and fun place to stay, with a helpful staff that mostly speaks English. Hotel con Corazon is very affordable, at $30-$40 cheaper than other hotels in its class. It is two blocks north of the main square and that funnels all profits to help local kids stay in school. My wife and I stayed here one night (unfortunately we didn't know it existed until our last night) in a cheery room and had a great meal of gaspacho, chili, and a great dessert of pineapple drizzled with a tasty vanilla sauce. The food is affordable and some of the best we have eaten in Latin America. They have hammocks, a great pool, a bar and a courtyard, as well as a oversize chess set with two-foot tall pieces. Its a great place that we plan to stay at again and I would recommend it to anyone!

Basically one of the nicest places I've had the joy of staying in. Fantastic vibe, just enough style without being over the top, and a really relaxing place to spend your days and nights.

Having toured Nicaragua for three weeks, we left Granada for the end. It's a beautiful city, along with Leon it was pretty sweet to spend a few days chilling there, allowing yourself to get a contrast to Nicaragua's beaches and rural countryside.

Being set a block down from the east side of the main square means the Hotel Con Corazon is a perfect arms length from the over the top tourist side of things. It certainly feels as if Granada has quite a few hotels and restaurants that fall into that category (and that's cool if that's your kind of thing).

The guys who run it a really passionate about their project (as the hotel is run to help a street children charity), they have quality coffee, a sweet pool, and you can even get a $35 taxi back to Managua airport from the Nicaraguan chess champion. Their website is pretty true to the hotels set up and style, and should let you gauge if it's your cup of tea.

It's not only exactly where you should stay, but exactly where your money should be going.
