“Perfect introduction to Nicaragua”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Our family of three stayed at the Hotel Colonial for five nights in July. We had a wonderful experience. The room and common areas were very clean and comfortable. Our room was spacious. The staff were helpful, friendly and kind. Both the AC in our room and the pool help elevate some of the hot, sweaty, humid Granada days more tolerable. The only negative is that for the $90 US dollars we paid, it should really include breakfast like so many other places in Nicaragua.

Dear "Surfista"

Thank you for commenting on us on Trip Advisor.

I am glad you liked your stay with us. Thank you for the kind recommendation.

Concerning the breakfast we decided not to include our a la carte breakfast (from US$ 4 - US$ 8.-) in the room rate as many people who stay a bit longer in Granada wish to eat as well in one of the many Restaurants in Granada. Guests who would like to have an early coffee before going out to explore Granada are getting of course complimentary coffee from 7 - 10am.

We are looking forward seeing you again in beautiful Granada/Nicaragua and hope to welcome you again at Hotel Colonial.

Kind regards from Granada

We spent two nights at this hotel. Upon arrival they carried our "heavy" bags up a flight of stairs to a really nice room with a canopy bed. The pool is the centerpiece of the courtyard with beautiful vegetation surrounding. The staff was super friendly and gave us directions to everywhere and helped us reserve our ferry to Omotepe Island. Granada is very interesting with lots of history and things to see and EAT!

I have stayed at Hotel Colonial twice now, and I have loved it both times. The hotel is located conveniently near the central, great shops, and great restaurants. You can also take a walk to the lake and enjoy the beauty. I was very pleased with the comfort and help at the hotel. Granada is one of my favorite cities in Central America!! If I go back, I will stay at Hotel Colonial again.

We came rolling into Granada on a rainy day after being picked up in Managua by a Julian...a driver sent by Colonial Hotel. Hands down, the best driver we've ever had anywhere in the world. In fact, everyone we encountered at this quaint hotel was friendly and helpful. The rooms are well appointed - ours even had a jacuzzi tub. Lots of great art and colorful plants. Felt safe and well cared for.

Room Tip: Stay in a room out back near the smaller pool. When all is quiet, you can slip in for a midnight sw...

My family and I stayed at Hotel Colonial with Monkey Tours. The hotel is located conveniently near the central park, near a beautiful cathedral and restaurants. The rooms were ornately decorated with colors that I felt mixed with the colorfulness of Granada, and were clean and had good quality air conditioning. The garden inside was also absolutely beautiful with a pool in the center. The reception was very helpful with giving directions and recommending restaurants that do not use tap water in cooking. The host and hostess are great people and are fluent in a variety of languages. They personally served us breakfast, which was delicious and filling for a long day's ride. The only minor issue that I had was that I could not get wifi reception from my room, so I had to sit in the hallway to get wifi. Luckily, there were wooden benches placed in the hallways so I could sit comfortably. Highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Granada!

I stayed with four other friends at Hotel Colonial in January 2014. It has a perfect central location enabling us to walk everywhere. We had a situation at the end of the trip come up and the Swiss owners were very accommodating and understanding of the situation. They were friendly and extremely personable. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and clean. We had a room facing the street and surprisingly we did not hear any street traffic! The balcony area was a great perk as well. The staff was also exceptionally friendly. The pool area and swim up bar were magnificent and the food was great. I highly recommend this hotel and I look forward to visiting again.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Colonial in 2013 ... and fell in love with Granada during our stay. The hotel is perfectly located right off of Central Park so all of the best sites are only minutes away. The rooms are clean, air conditioned and very comfortable. The prices are very reasonable for Granada ...not the highest or the lowest ... definitely a great value! The pool is inviting with a swim up bar which connects to an actual bar where you can relax and enjoy the day. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a great place to stay in Granada.
