“Awesome Hotel – Courtyard, view, staff, food, Top Notch!”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

Didn’t know what to expect, but this colonial hotel is in the heart of town, our balcony overlooking the town square was wonderful. We sat outside, and enjoyed the feel of the town, watching the horse drawn carriages go by. The room was great, big, the doors to the huge Patio, A/C worked great, and the Hotel staff, was so friendly! The little bar downstairs sold great cigars, and served a mean drink. Oh, and the breakfast, I’m still missing it… Spectacular place. If you want to be in the heart of Granada, with the friendliest staff, and a wonderful hotel, there is no better place to stay!

Room Tip: E-mail the Hotel, and ask for their best rate!

This was a beautiful hotel. The first stop on our honeymoon in Nicaragua and it was amazing. The staff is very friendly and professional. Granada is a great little town to explore and the people are great! This was a great hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park.

Lovely, lovely place - wonderful front desk staff was so helpful that I wound up chatting with them frequently. The food was divine, and the breakfast menu changed daily (nice!) The staff was quietly efficient, yet friendly. The whole place seemed to be spotless, and the pool area was maintained constantly -- the room? Wonderfully appointed and great big comfy beds...

Great location and great staff. I can't overstate how important it is to have such a helpful, English speaking hotel staff ready to help when your Spanish is as bad as mine (especially in a place like Nicaragua). The staff at Plaza Colon were some of the best I've seen in Central America.

The rooms were large and well equipped, though a little dark for lack of natural light. I would highly recommend paying a little extra and getting a balcony room. Just be warned that the balcony rooms can get a little loud at night with all of the birds in Parque Central.

Overall a great place.

Take a step back in time while enjoying every modern amenity. You'd never know the the hotel building is 200+ years old the way the polished wood gleams and everything is meticulously maintained. (Usually the musty smell in old places gets to my allergies, but not here.) Two beautifully landscaped courtyards, one with a lovely, refreshing pool (much appreciated in the heat of Granada). Outstanding full buffet breakfast included. We opted for a room with an enormous balcony overlooking the main square; relaxing there with the view of all the horse-drawn carriages below outweighed the down-side of the extra noise at night. Room was huge, with AC and flat-screen TV. Take a carriage tour of the city with Carmen, the jovial driver. (She's the only female, but could be mistaken for a guy at first glance with her short hair and tee-shirt.) She'll also take you to the dock for a boat tour of Las Isletas. Our favorite restaurant was at the Hotel Darius. A charming town to visit for a few days.

I can't say enough good things about this place. We loved it, and the staff was the best! They all knew our names and I have to give a special shout out to Carlos he goes above & beyond-when I was having a problem with my debit card he walked with me to the bank to speak with the staff there to fix it. All the front desk staff were great-I feel bad that I don't remember all their names. We travel a lot and this trip to Nicaragua has been just great due in part to the hotels we stayed in (read my other reviews) and the Plaza Colon is the best in Granada!

This hotel was amazing! Rooms were spacious and clean and the location right on the square was great. The staff at hotel plaza colon were super helpful and even knew us by name. We will definitely return!
