“Outstanding staff and service and the location can't be beat”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

I spent 5 nights at the Hotel plaza Colon. Every member of the staff was extremely friendly and extremely efficient. The concierge, Virginia, was fantastic. She efficiently arranged so many tours and rides for me and her advice was invaluable. She patiently answered the many questions I asked her every day. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The hotel is perfectly located on the edge of the main plaza. My room,#201 was very large, clean and comfortable. It only had small windows that opened above the interior courtyard of the hotel. That aside, the room was fantastic.

I would definitely stay at the Plaza Colon again and I highly recommend it.

We spent the first two nights of a wonderful week in Nicaragua in this lovely hotel and city. They arranged for a driver to pick us up ($45) at the airport and it was a pleasant 50m ride to the hotel. The drive spoke perfect English and was very informed about the area. On arriving at the hotel the hotel the staff was welcoming and very efficient. The hotel is in a calm, tranquil place with a warm feeling. The snacks and drinks we had were all very good and well priced. The town of Granada and the square is spread out right in front of the hotel and made for great people watching. The horse and buggy rides are also right in front and they can be persistent but took no for an answer very well. Everyone we met in Granada was very kind and welcoming.

The room we had was down by the pool and was great, wonderful big bed, very comfortable high quality bedding and spotless.
I would recommend the hotel to any one staying in Granada. We went off to Hacienda Puerta Del Cielo Eco Spa, after our two days here and had a outstanding say there. I really must say that Nicaragua offers way more then you expect and I will be back!

Room Tip: I was told that the rooms facing the square could be noisy at night, our room 107 was quite and comf...

Stayed here for 3 nights with family and greatly enjoyed trip. The location can't be beat (right on the square) and the rooms were excellent. The rooms were well appointed, comfortable and we loved the large balcony facing the parque central. Courtyard and pool are pretty and surprisingly quiet, even though its in the middle of the city. Breakfast is excellent: The food is great and the service is also top notch.

We also appreciated Virginia's (Concierge/Guest Services) help in arranging a tour of the city (and isletas), going zip lining on Mombacho as well as arranging a tour of Masaya volcano and the some of the surrounding towns (the "Classico tour"). Our tour guide for the Classico was Carlos. Carlos also picked us up at MGA on our first night......highly recommend him.

I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the square have a huge balcony that faces the park/cathedral. It is very cool and v...

This quaint hotel has the best location in town since it is located right on the central plaza. Despite its central location, its interior courtyards and rooms and quiet and comfortable. After a day of touring, it is nice to take a dip in the small but clean pool and retreat to the comfortable hotel rooms. Everything is very clean. The rooms come with a delicious big breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: my room was on the first floor, but it was still quiet.

We chose to splurge and stay at Plaza Colon for one night while we explored Granada and renewed our Costa Rica tourist visas. The room was good sized with powerful AC, a very comfortable king bed, and a large flat screen TV. The bathroom was huge and the hot water was almost instantaneous!

Since we were in and out we didn't get a chance to enjoy the pool, which was set in a lovely garden, but the free breakfast buffet was outstanding! Service was excellent, the staff were very friendly and always eager to help, and overall we had a great experience!

If possible, try to get a room with balcony views facing the Parque Central, our room had patio doors that looked promising, but they opened up onto a sad little enclosed area. Also slightly disappointing was the wireless, our connections kept going in and out and weren't particularly strong. And while the free welcome drinks were a nice touch, they were disgusting! Unless you like Tamarind juice...

Room Tip: Try to get a room with views facing the Parque Central.

The rooms were the nicest we stayed in all week and they were very clean when we arrived. The breakfast buffet was by far the best hotel breakfast I'd ever had. The food was had a variety typical breakfast items as well as the traditional Nicaraguan items. They made your eggs according to order right in front of you and delicious seasonal juices were served. The pool was beautiful and very refreshing. The front desk service extended far beyond the expected duties and their English was excellent. We travelled with a large group which can be overwhelming for most hotels but they accommodated us with grace. I highly recommend it to all kinds of groups. By far the best hotel in Granada.
