Reviewed May 13, 2014

Our first two nights in a Granada, we stayed two nights in a very nice, highly-rated hotel a bit further from the centre. For the next two nights, we stayed at Hotel Plaza Colón. We preferred Hotel Plaza Colón by a significant margin.

This hotel is certainly punching above its weight.

The staff were superb — really helpful. They remembered our names, helped with arranging a tour, rental car exchange, directions, etc. (Carlos and Nelson, and the front desk staff esp.)

Great location on the Central Park, but we were not disturbed by the city noise.

We had a rental car and there was free parking right behind the hotel.

The pool is not large but nicely maintained and pleasant for a dip.

Buffet breakfast (included) is served from 7:00 until 10:00 am and gets high marks for variety and quality and service.

We liked the room: nice linens, great AC (which we didn't have to use all the time because of the ceiling fan and thick walls), pleasant furnishing, clean, well-stocked bathroom with lots of hot water, minibar with reasonable prices, two free bottles of water and purified drinking water for refills available in the business centre and bar.

All these points combine to create a very special hotel with a tranquil and welcoming ambience.

We spent two nights in this very pleasant colonial-style hotel in the center of Granada. The location couldn't be better, as the front of the hotel faces the central park and is directly across from the cathedral. Our second-floor room, which opened to a courtyard balcony, was dark, with little natural lighting, but it was huge, and we were happy with it. The pool area has plenty of room to relax after a day of sightseeing, and the staff were always friendly and helpful. Although the hotel has no restaurant, they do serve an excellent breakfast by the courtyard pool. Calle la Calzada is "Restaurant Row" in Granada, and is behind the cathedral just across the park. .

Stayed here our first two nights of our 16 day trip and loved everything about it.
The hotel arranged our pick up from the airport and we ended up using that company ourselves for the odd taxi service for us personally as the drivers were so great and prices were the same or just slightly higer than the norm, run down local taxis.
The staff were attentive and nice. The concierge arranged a fabulous tour to the Mombacho volcano which ended up being our own tour with this fabulous guide named Erick. Ask for him, his knowledge of history, flora and fauna is nothing short of impressive.
As everyone says pay extra for the balcony rooms. Yes its loud when they are open or you are sitting out there but we were surprised of how quiet the rooms were when you had them shut.
Pool is delicious after a hot day and the breakfast is amazing.
Would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

We spent 4 nights at the Plaza Colon and it could not have been better! The room was perfect, very clean and the balcony overlooking the plaza was our favorite place to sit in the evenings. Victor and the rest of the staff were the best and always helpful. The pool was another favorite hangout and was never crowded. The bartenders were exceptional also. The Plaza Colon was close to the major strip of restaurants and bars and we always had something to do or visit nearby. I would highly recommend this hotel and if I return to Granada we will most certainly be staying here again!

Room Tip: Go for the balcony rooms overlooking the plaza. Great people watching and the noise you would expec...

Exceptional location, service and facility. No hotel has a better location in Granada. The exterior is attractive, but the real beauty lies with the two interior courtyards. The hotel has a cozy colonial feeling along with modern amenities.

The staff was friendly, professional and I cannot imagine a better experience.

Dear James,

Thank you very much for your comments and I'm happy to hear that you not only enjoyed Granada, but also our rooms, location and were pleased with our Staff, they work hard everyday and fortunately they enjoy what they do a lot!!

Guests' feedback is precious to us, so if you would be so kind to send me specific comments about why your experience with our breakfast fell short, I would be so grateful. We use local produce only (except for bacon, cheddar cheese, raisins and almonds, which are not produced locally), everything but the bread is made fresh in house (we buy fresh bread from the local bakery), the eggs and chia seeds served are 100% organic and come from an NGO that provides technical education in organic agriculture to Granadino high school students (they have the school too!). We do try our best every time but also realize that perfection in our industry can be achieved only in the follow up with feedback from our clients. When we miss the target (100% GREAT) we always try to do service-repair immediately.

Thank you again and I appreciate in advance your valuable input!

Love the Plaza Colon. Only problem is it will spoil you for everywhere else you'll ever stay! It just won't be as nice, have as much character, or have as heartwarming and caring staff. We cannot wait to stay again, it's just So beautiful! And yes will be the best place you'll ever stay for $100.
