This hotel gives you the comfort of hot water and air conditioning and the style of a typical hotel or hostel in Nicaragua, with several open courtyards, tile floors, fountains, etc. Convenient location, quiet. Definitely a good value.

Room Tip: Kids activities and swimming pool should be n/a

This small hotel is conveniently located about three blocks from the center of town, so it is within walking distance of the limited attractions Granada has to offer. Granada is promoted as the oldest city in the Americas -- but it was repeatedly burnt to the ground by pirates, lastly by American William Walker in 1856, so there is not much to see from the early days. The hotel, however, is quite pleasant and although the rooms are small and basic, there is plenty of open-air common space with tables, chairs, and hammocks that helped us feel much less cramped for space. It also meant we had more contact with other guests for sharing travel tips and highlights. Each room features a large tiled artwork; the series is based on local Indigenous stories (it would have been interesting to have access to a guide to the stories and artworks). We were in a room near the back, and could not access WiFi from our room, but the signal was strong in the common areas closer to the front of the hotel. Staff were always attentive and helpful, and the complimentary breakfast consisted of a fruit bowl, and self-serve toast, cereal, gallo pinto (rice and beans), juice, tea and coffee. Guests could also order eggs made a number of ways for under 30 limperas (about $1.50).

The location is great = three blocks away from city center, and restaurant row. Far enough away to avoid all the loud noises at night and yet close enough to all the attractions .Staff is very helpful. Rooms are immaculate. This is the first hotel I've seen where the staff actually balance the foot of the bed on a chair so that they can sweep and mop under the bed. This hotel has the best showers in Nicaragua. Lots of hot water and plenty of pressure. The breakfasts are nothing spectacular, but sufficient to get you started on your day. There are three garden areas within the hotel to gather and just relax ( the rocking chairs feel great after a long day of walking ).

Room Tip: Best rooms are towards the back, away from the street.

we found this to be a perfect place for us to stay, the perfect distance from the central square to have quiet and feel safe parking our car. if you're a light sleeper you are at the mercy of the courtesy of other guests, as the windows to each room face luscious courtyards. the shared areas for breakfast and lounging are lovely, with shady hammock and chirping birds. Breakfast is mediocre (no gallo tinto) but adequate, and this place well makes up for the value with luxuries such as in room a/c, clean towels changed daily, hot water showers round-the-clock, and decent pillows.

Room Tip: Let them know if you are a light sleeper, that you need a quiet room.

We stayed at the Kekoldi in 2007 and thoroughly enjoyed it, so it was easy to choose our hotel when we returned this summer. Again, we weren't disappointed.

The Kekoldi is single storey, and built around a central courtyard and garden area. The rooms are well furnished, have good beds, and a/c. Original modern art on the walls is a nice classy touch. Bathrooms are fine, showers hot.

Breakfast is provided in a little covered area at the back of the hotel garden. Whilst breakfast is included (inc rice and beans) an charge is levied for extras like eggs. I'd say charging for eggs is a little trivial, but it's a minor niggle really.

The hotel staff are friendly. English is spoken if your Spanish is limited.

The hotel is about 3 blocks (5 minutes walk, tops) from the Parque Central/plaza, so pretty central in terms of the city's sights and amenities - although Granada is small enough to be walkable anyway and feels pretty safe, too.
