Hotel Patio del Malinche
Ranked #4 of 45 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 20, 2008

We stayed at the Hotel Patio del Malinche for two nights while in Nicaragua, as well as had them arrange our pick-up at the airport in Managua.

It was by far our favorite hotel we stayed in. It's beautifully re-done. Amazing court yards, convenient pool and bar. The rooms are small, but very comfortable and clean. You're not there to sit in your room anyway. It's a great location.

The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. The breakfast is delicious. We loved it so much here, we considered changing our travel plans to stay in Granada so we could come back to the hotel. We pushed on to Leon, but missed this place.

And gay friendly.

This is a great choice for a stay in Granada! The hotel is very welcoming and almost feels like home. Conveniently located only a few blocks from the Parque Central. The rooms are very simple and small (the only down side). There is basically room for the bed and a little walking space (no chair, desk, etc.), but they are clean and open up to the beautiful courtyard where you can sit on one of the rocking chairs, hammocks, etc. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful. It feels like everyone is part of the family. The courtyard areas are beautifully appointed and the breakfast is bountiful! It's a great deal for the price as well.

We are here for out second stay with Lidia and Ramon , the owners of this terrific hotel! The minute we arrive we feel like family. After staying here last year there was no question about where we would stay this time around. This is the only place for us!
The hotel is immaculate with wonderful service. The staff here does not turnover and it shows in every aspect. The garden, surrounded by a patio on which everyone enjoys the delicious breakfast (included in the room rate), is beautifully kept. The rooms are spotless! The rooms look onto a courtyard with a lovely pool and banana trees! Internet is available in the rooms but better in the courtyard or on the patio.
Lidia and Ramon always help us plan our itinerary once we arrive. They have never steered us wrong! They are able to answer any questions and provide us with any necessities we may have forgotten like an umbrella! The staff is wonderful and seems more like a family than a group of employees.
And let's not forget Pedro, everyone's favorite Nicaraguan dog!
For us there is no other place to stay while we are in Granada!

In May 2008 we chose this accommodation for several days in Granada. Cost was $80 for a triple room.

This converted colonial house with courtyards had modern amenities such as AC, pool and even WiFi.

Breakfasts were fabulous (see photographs) with several choices including eggs, muesli, tropical (great fruit selection) and cereal. All accompanied by fresh juice and coffee.

Front desk staff helped with booking for great local tours, local guides and taxis as needed.

What stood out the most is that the staff at this hotel made you feel like family. They were always smiling, shared their music and experiences with us. We did not want to leave.

We stayed at Patio del Malinche for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. All the employees at PDM are extremely helpful and full of smiles and recommendations of places to see, and things to do. The rooms and environs are very clean, and the garden and pool meticulous. The owners Ramone and Lydia have done a beautiful restoration job of a classic colonial. Their attention to detail is evident in the Nicaraguan pottery and art scattered around the property, the relaxing hammock slung by the pool, and the delicious breakfast. We were heartened to see Ramone and Lydia eating breakfast with their staff in the mornings, and through 3rd party sources learnt that they donate to local charities regularly. We really miss PDM, and the cute black and white stray dog that they have adopted, and who's wagging tail is a fixture around the hotel!!

We left this hotel today and were sorry we had to go. All of the staff were wonderful and it is a beautifully developed colonial building. The breakfasts were wonderful and very generous and the pool area is beautiful as well. We were saying that if that hotel was in some parts of Europe, it would literally be ten times the price.
The owner went out of his way too to bring us to the station as we left. We loved Granada and this hotel was special.

We loved staying here. It is a renovated colonial hacienda in a perfect location in a delightful town.

The room was a bit small. The wireless internet didn't work well in the room but did in the patio area where we had breakfast.

We were upstairs, with no elevator so if you if you prefer ground floor you need to specify.

There was a nice pool and the setting is beautiful. The staff were very helpful. Breakfast was quite good, especially the fruit platter!

We could walk pretty much anywhere we wanted in town and there are quite a few pretty good restaurants. Granada is in the process of a major transformation with places like our that have been bought by outsiders (in our case people from Spain) who are spending real money to upgrade the spaces, convert them to hotels and/or restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
More than a place in the world, a house is a place in one's heart. El Patio del Malinche is more than just another hotel, it's a dream come true. Our interest to live in a different culture and to get to know new horizons took us to the ancient town of Granada. The sun-dried bricks of Granada's old walls and the hospitality of its people bewitched us. By restoring an old colonial house we relived a life of peace and serenity created by its inside patios full of history. We hope our guests will be able to revive and share with us the atmosphere of other times. We will be delighted to share our house, where life pours from every corner. ... more   less
