From the moment the Hotel arranged transport picked us up at the airport, until the moment they dropped us back at the airport for our return home this hotel consistently exceeded our expectations Our room was immaculate and cool with a small balcony overlooking the street, on which serveral nights we just sat, had a beer and took in street life. The bathroom, although short of storage was perfecctly adequate. EVERYTHING worked - A/C, hot water room safe, mini bar!!
Whilst we were away my partner celebrated her birthday. I asked the hotel to arrange for a birthday cake as a surprise and to deliver it to our table after dinner. Not only did the cake arrive, with singing staff but earlier that day on our return from a day trip a hugh bouquet, wishing her a happy birthday was delivered to our room from the hotel. What a great gesture
Breakfast is served on a patio overlooking a small garden - the food served sets you up perfectly for a "hard" day's sightseeing - and believe me, there is plently to see both in Granada and in the rest of Nicaragua.
We had two evening meals at the hotel both were excellent - the one night that i had steak it was likely the biggest steak that I have ever been faced with in my entire life.
If you are thinking of a trip to Nicaragua which includes Granada give this hotel a try - I promise you that you will not be disappointed.

This architectural jewel was restored during the decade of the 1990's, recovering the majesty and splendor of its heyday and today houses our hotel restaurant, bars and banquet hall facilities. In two distinct and centric settings, La Gran Francia Colonial Hotel offers its guests a total of 35 air-conditioned rooms, with all modern comforts and amenities.
