“Mi Casa en Granada”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

I decided to study Spanish in Granada for 3 weeks this past month and was looking for a place to call home. Yexira and her lovely hotel could not have been a better choice. The hotel is a labor of love and was all I was hoping for. It is clean, quiet, well tended to, reasonably priced, decorated with care and in a vibrant Nicaraguan neighborhood 10 minute walk from the tourist center. (It would be a wonderful base for a few nights too.)
Walking home in the evening was always a pleasure as I saw the true city dwellers out and about and I never came home without some fresh food I had purchased at some of the many stands along the way. (Taxis are omnipresent and inexpensive as a night option.)
I had the pleasure to get to know Yexira throughout my stay. She is a fine, very nice, caring,intelligent woman who is there if you need her, but blends unobtrusively into the background when you do not.
I had one of the most wonderful stays here, in my many travels, because of Yexira's hotel that I was able to call home. perhaps, if you are as lucky as I was, you will have a chance to meet her delightful family and friends.

The rooms are nice and very clean, breakfast (5 USD) is very good.
The staff very helpful and kind, tells you about the city history and places to see.
Bad point: too far from the centre, not dangerous but at night you have to take a taxi
Good point: unique hotel where they accept credit card with NO charge!

Very nice hotel in Granada. Small, clean, quite and very friendly staff. Has little garden inside and serves delicious breakfast! We had stayed here for few days with family of two adult and our little boy. Just few blocks away (10 min.) from Granada main plaza. Save neighborhood as we had walked all days down to restaurant and churches with no problems at all. Sure, you must have common sense as everywhere in the world. And definitely we would stay here again if one day we will come back to beautiful town of Granada!

The location is 10 minutes walk from the town centre. It seems like out of the way because Granada is such a tiny town, but in London terms that is as close as a typical walk to the nearest tube station - there is nowhere in Granada that is not near the centre of town. Despite that the hotel does achieve the tranquil feel it strives for, being tucked away just off the main north-south road.

The rooms are good - they are in separate little huts, with lots of shrubbery around. This results in a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. We went for a room without air conditioning, but the large window and fan were more than capable of keeping the room at a comfortable temperature. They have cold water only, but in 30 degree heat I did not see that as a downside. The Internet connection is fast and as reliable as can be expected from an ADSL line.

Yexira is a wonderful hostess, is very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. She helped us plan trips to volcanoes and organise a trip to the islets to the south of Granada. The hotel owners are dedicated to making tourism in Nicaragua prosper, and as such try to find the best deals and experiences for tourists they can (if you ask them). They will also advise you of where to visit in town and what the good places to eat are.

The cooking was surprisingly good, and although the breakfasts are not included in the room price they are well worth the cost. I arrived to Granada around midday and walked from the bus stop, so when I got to the hotel I was noticeably sweating. Their lemonade + biscuits had truly restorative qualities.

The bikes they have are very... Nicaraguan. You'll see what I mean if you decide to make use of them. Just around the corner from the hotel there is an air-fill station - like a petrol station but one that provides air and bike servicing.

They also do laundry: It was about 10 times cheaper than in Managua, returned on the same day (in contrast to the 4 days Managuans managed to take), and didn't lose anything. All in all, a clear winner.

Property itself seems nice with rooms around a tree and plant filled courtyard. Location is a bit away from town and just off the edge of some of the local maps. As I had a young child with me I thought it was a bit far from the center of town. A local person that gave me a ride to another hotel told me that the area was not the best but I was not there long so could not say if it is true. They keep the front gate locked but this is not unusual and for the safety of the guests.

I stayed here one night when I first arrived and then moved to another hotel. I reserved a basic fan only room for $29 a night if I paid by cash ($35 by credit card). When I arrived they offered me an air conditioned room for $47 if I paid by credit card and $39 if by cash. It seemed like a big price difference for both the air conditioning and credit card use. I arrived late at night and they were kind enough to provide me with a cold beer at no charge. In my confirmation email they also offered to provide some food if we needed it on arrival.

Before I arrived they suggested a taxi from the airport for $35, but when I asked if there was a more reasonable alternative they took a while to respond and indicated the airport had more expensive options. In the mean time I found the PAXEO service on my own that cost only $27 for myself and young child (would have been cheaper if more passengers customers arrived) and the hotel asked me to tell them about it.

Beds quite high off the floor as was the sink. My young son could not reach. The hotel does not have hot water. Breakfast is also not included but is apparently available for an additional price.

A new hotel a few blocks from the main street, Casa Barcelona is a nice retreat from the hustle and bustel of town. It's about a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. The linen and towels are great quality and the comfortable bed ensured a great night sleep. There are signs all around town directing you to the hotel in case you get lost. The manager lives on-site and she is very helpful in providing advice about activities and transport. There are 5 options for breakfast at $5 - we had the American breakfast which was cooked to perfection and is filling. A hotel room for the price of a backpacker hostel, we could not fault Casa Barcelona. A taxi organized by the hotel greeted us at the Managua airport on our arrival with the hotel name and our name on a sign. For $35 for the hour trip, it was worth it knowing that there would be no issues with getting lost or ripped-off.

Room Tip: 5 bed dorms toward the back of the block; twin rooms and double bed rooms at the front. Room 2 is a...
