“So good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Casa San Francisco was our first place to stay in Nicaragua. We arrived late but were efficiently and graciously welcomed. The hotel is peaceful place with comfortable rooms in a beautiful renovated old building. The staff are really excellent and fluent in English helping us with information about Granada, local tours and ongoing travel arrangements. We loved the rooftop area with its great views over Granada. Terry the co-owner was around a lot helping to enhance the warm and friendly vibe of the place. A wonderful way to start a trip.

We were two couples traveling in Nicaragua and stayed here for our three nights in Granada. Sweet. There are a limited number of rooms making for an intimate atmosphere. The lobby and bar, the dining area, the small pool area and other public places are tastefully done - folk art and antiques mostly and not a bit of glitz. The rooms are modest and comfortable with good beds and pillows and decent showers. The tapas restaurant, operated by others as Bocadillos, is perfect in this setting. I would definitely return.

My husband and I just returned from an 8-night stay at Casa San Francisco. The entire staff were wonderful to us -- answering all questions, arranging excursions, providing extra services, giving good advice, etc. Lovely people and conveniently located. We felt safe and welcome at all times. The staff and food of Bocadillos in the evening were also great.

We stayed at the Hotel San Fran for a week while visiting the area and going to a wedding in the city center that was two blocks away. It was an enjoyable experience as the room was large with a bathroom with a walk- in shower, balcony, and air conditioning. Breakfast downstairs at 7 to 10am that is part of the arrangements or you can pay for a larger selection that is not necessary. They have about 10 rooms that were all full and we met other travelers at breakfast to share ideas as where to visit. The staff was always gracious and the owners were there each day for info. They had a clerk at the front 24/7 for your convince. A small bar with tapas was available from about 3pm to when the last customer leaves. We always felt safe. Our visit was January 2014.Good People.

This hotel is better than any of the pictures can show. It is what Granada is all about. The hotel is so beautiful. It is a quaint hotel with so many sides to it. First, the reception area with the bar to the left makes you feel very welcomed, Next the dining area with such nice atmosphere. The hall way going into the poll area. Upstairs is patio with a secluded wall for privacy. You cant tell it by the pictures but there is room for a least 16 people. The owners could not of done a better job with this place. It is absolutely perfect! First time I've ever felt that way. The restaurant inside is called Bocdllos and is just as good as the hotel. Way to go. Also, One block always from main square. Can not beat this location.

Room Tip: If you want to be right in front of pool stay done stairs. Want to be above pool and more private go...

This is a charming little place, priced reasonably. Location was very convenient for exploring this lovely town. Room was spacious, bathroom pleasent. Parking is external and chargable.
Breakfast was not that great, they bring you the plate which was not very aboundant for Nicaraguans standards..but it was tasty.

Pool is not really usable, very small and in constant shade, its more as a decor, so if you need a pool (i didnt) look elsewhere.

Overall very reccomended.

We stayed for four nights and got a great welcome. One of the owners, Terry, was extremely helpful with tips on what to do around Granada and her staff arranged transport and a guide. All the staff are brilliant (the night porter made us a 4am breakfast and the laundry service is fast and cheap). The bar is run by Shane and Corinna and their food and cocktails are superb. The rooms are good and have a safe. The pool is small but nice for a plunge on a hot day.
Two restaurants in the town have fabulous salads; El Garaje and Suenos. Try Imagine for nighttime live music. The Garden Cafe has an interesting shop and delicious smoothies.
