“Lovely retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

I stayed here for 6 nights in August. The welcome at reception was warm and friendly, the room (no2) on the ground floor was large and comfortable, although a little on the dark side. The pool and bar area was clean and the staff very friendly, and the breakfasts were very good, if a little on the large side.

The calm, quiet and serene nature of this hotel is such a welcome contrast from the noise and dust of Granada's main square just outside the front door. I had a fabulous time in this city and at this hotel and I would have no hesitation in returning or recommending it to any of my friends.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

Staff was great, very clean rooms, nice showers, bed was comfortable (King size). Two swimming pools. everyone working there always had a smile. I lived in Nicaragua for 5 years off and on and never been inside. i was very impressed and my children loved it as well.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are great

Great hotel at a great price and located just off the main plaza in Granada. The rooms are spacious and well decorated with all the amenities you would expect. Very nice pool though small. On the day we were there size made no difference as no one was using the pool! Within the complex is a very homey bar along with outdoor table seating. The restaurant offers a varied menu though I can not comment on the quality of the food as we did not eat there. Next time... I would recommend this hotel due to its proximity to the heart of the entertainment district in Granada.

At the end of a gruelling charity bike through Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua our last stop was at the Hotel Colonial. May be it was because we'd stayed in cheap digs and camped all week but it felt really luxurious to our tired bodies!

The rooms were plush and the bed super comfy. The hot water was rather hit and miss but it was warm enough not to be too much of an issue.

Lovely little pool with a bar. But it took forever to get a drink so you had to plan ahead and buy two at a time.

We had an organised meal in and this was poor but I don't think they normally do evening meals.

Breakfasts were good - great pancakes with honey and fruit.

Great central location for wandering out day and night.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room overlooking the pool.

Hotel Colonial was right in the heart of Granada so we were easily able to explore the city while going on day excursions to the various volcanoes and canoeing in Lake Nicaragua. Most of their staff spoke English which was also helpful for us and their front desk is staffed 24 hours a day.
