My wife and I stayed at Hotel Plaza Colon for our honeymoon in June, and we could not have been happier with our choice.
First, the location. You can't ask for a better location. Right on Plaza Colon, with some rooms overlooking the plaza and beautiful views of the Cathedral (despite some reviewers complaints, we never had any issues with noise from the plaza). Also, it is centrally located--just a short walk to the bars and restaurants on calzada, but far enough away for some peace and quiet.
Second, the quality of the rooms/hotel. The rooms were extremely large and very clean, with beautiful wood floors and doors. Great hot water, water pressure and air conditioning, luxuries in Nicaragua. Some of the rooms overlook the plaza, and others overlook the two central courtyards in the hotel, with one of the courtyards having a nice pool. Although they don't have a fitness center, they offer free passes to a small, local gym. And the breakfast was simply amazing. We traveled all over Nicaragua for our honeymoon (Corn Islands, Managua, Ometepe, Pacific Coast), and one of our favorite times was having a nice, relaxing breakfast at the hotel as we planned our day.
Finally, and I really can't say enough about this, but the service was simply outstanding--from the bellboy, to the reception, to the servers, to the concierge. They were all not only extremely helpful, but also friendly and went out of their way to help and always with a smile on their faces. They helped us with ALL our transportation over Nicaragua, including arranging for transportation from our hotel on the Pacific coast back to the airport. They helped with our tours/siteseeing around Granada and with arranging a hotel on Ometepe.
We would highly recommend Hotel Plaza Colon to any and all travelers, with a couple looking for a romantic getaway, a family, or a solo traveler. It will not disappoint!
