“A Wonderful Place to Stay in the Old City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

We spent four nights in Granada at this lovely hotel. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms were quiet, clean and luxurious and the balcony was absolutely great. Awesome view of the Plaza and the Cathedral. It is the perfect location for exploring the city and taking tours of the surrounding region. It was so nice to be able to stop into our air-conditioned room whenever we wanted to as it could get quite hot during the afternoon. All of the staff were great. They set up transportation and tours and helped us figure out details of our trip. The courtyard and pool were beautiful and refreshing. I highly recommend this hotel for a memorable stay in the charming and vibrant old city of Granada.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Plaza are the best for views and experience. We loved the rocking chairs.

Spectacularly sited, this is nearly a "must-stay" in Nicaragua. The Hotel is located right on the main square overlooking the Cathedral; ideally suited to sight-seeing and dining. Not the cheapest, but given the ambiance, service, and convenience it is clearly one of, (if not THE), best hotels in the country!

This hotel was excellent in practically every way. It was beautiful with an interesting history. It was very clean, comfortable, and roomy. I did not see any bugs in the hotel. The A/C worked great and was not noisy. It was perfectly located in the city. Everything was within a reasonable walking distance. I was very impressed with the staff. They were always available, extremely courteous, and genuinely friendly and helpful. I can not praise the staff adequately.

As a guest of this hotel, I posted a review on 6/2, citing a time consuming problem with the in-room safe. Two days later upon checkout -- without additional prompting from me -- the manager again apologized again for the problem and presented us a superior bottle of wine as compensation. I was unable to change my already posted review. Problems happen in all places, it's how the management handles them that counts. This was handled well in my opinion. Enjoy you stay.

WE stayed at the Plaza Colon first week of Sep '12. the staff was absolutely amazing and welcoming. They were willing to help with anything at all. Carlos one of the bellman greeted me and my girlfriend each day with a great smile and made us real comfortable. Virginia at the guest services desk made last second changes for any tours or transportaton we needed and was always extremely professional and friendly. Yes the rooms are expensive for Nicaragua, but it is definitley worth it with. thank you again for a wonderful experience

The best ever.......good friendly staff, the breakfast was really excellent, first class, clean rooms and a very enjoyable stay. We liked the hotel so much that we returned for a second stay shortly after the first. The concierge actually took us on a tour on his day off and we had a great time.
I look forward to going again soon.

This place was fantastic. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, and the location can't be beat. We weren't able to get a balcony because of renovations, but our room was great nonetheless. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was spotless. But what sets it apart is the staff - the concierge was incredibly helpful getting things set up so we could enjoy Granada and it's surrounding places to the fullest. Stay here!
