Can't praise this place enough. We had a front room with balcony overlooking the square. All it needed was a hammock and I could have lived out there! The square is endlessly fascinating - Nicaraguan life going by your eyes, so much more entertaining than any movie. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. Service was great and unobtrusive. Breakfast was delicious. The pool is small but very clean and private - a perfect retreat. The value is incredible.

Room Tip: I would definitely pay the little bit extra to get a balcony at the front overlooking the square. T...

The hotel is as awesome as it gets in Nicaragua -- (Mukul awesome) but for different reasons. The staff take the time to know you; they anticipate your needs before you know you need something; always a smile; a joke or some personal anecdote that makes you feel part of the family and not a guest. The hotel itself has steady and speedy internet, a pool, best breakfast in town, can't be better located across from El Parque Centrale and is affordable for all (unless you are looking for a hostel). Highly recommended

Room Tip: Go for on the 107-108-109 side for a quieter sleep (it is off the street and the park); and the firs...

Two lovely nights at the Plaza Colon with great Spanish colonial hacienda feel. Rooms are large and bathrooms and showers ample. Buffet breakfast at poolside in the rear courtyard was excellent. Staff very attentive. The hotel fronts on the Plaza Colon across from the main cathedral. We were there at the end of the 2014 International Poets Festival. Our room at the rest of the rear courtyard was quiet even with the music in the plaza and a wedding at the hotel next door. Enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave on the rainy morning when sitting with that extra cup of coffee and the newspaper would have been preferable to the drive to the airport!

I had spent several months in Granada so when I decided to bring a group it was an easy choice. The Plaza Colon has the best location, the best breakfast and the best staff in the whole city ! The rooms are so cool and spacious and we loved all being on the ground floor, just steps from the pool. The manager Joan was a pleasure to work with and every member of the staff was friendly and accommodating. I couldn't recommend it more.

One of the great assets of Hotel Plaza Colon is it's concierge, Virginia, who is in charge of guest relations. Virginia helped plan the whole vacation and Hotel Plaza Colon is a world class hotel and a highlight of the trip. Excellent buffet breakfast, efficient and professional staff and room 204 overlooking the plaza gives you an action view of the sights and sounds of the Nicaraguan people.

Room Tip: We liked the room with a balcony facing the plaza but naturally they are more noisy. The room number...

We rented 4 rooms on a family vacation and everyone not only liked the rooms but the breakfasts were great. The staff were very attentive to all of our needs. The location in the center of Granada cannot be beat. We will stay there again on our next trip to Grenada.

I've stayed in plenty of hotels, but the cleanliness of this one amazed me. The workers were constantly cleaning, even caring for the plants and winding the vine up the post. The breakfast was fresh and delicious with a wonderful buffet.

I'm so glad the Hotel Plaza Colon is the one we chose.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room with 2 queen beds, although I thought they looked like kings. The room was...
