One of the best massages I ever had! I was not at the hotel, but the one I was staying booked for me and my friends massages here, and it was the best decision of all. Absolutely professional personnel in a lovely setting. Just to relax after a hot day in the town.

Near the Park Centrale, near to where I was staying nearby. I found the Balance spa for massage - great Massage therapist - I went three times the week I was there! With a spa service you can use the pool which is great on a hot (90F+) afternoon. Beautiful interior (an old colonial mansion) with 6 rooms for guests.... More

This is a hotel with great potential that is badly in need of improvement.. It is a beautiful old mansion with an outstanding collection of modern art. Our room was large and interestingly decorated with a very comfortable sitting area in the central courtyard. The location was ideal very near major sites, but far enough away to avoid the noise...

We just got back from a four night stay at La Bocona. The hotel is well situated and an easy walk to Central Granada; there's an ATM and a 24 hour convenience store on the same block.

I was very impressed and would definitely stay here again. There was good communication even before I arrived, the hotel was able to arrange the Masaya night hike with a tour company they work with--important to do in advance as I understand the park only allows a certain number of people in for the night hike each day.

The moment we walked into this old hacienda, it was like finding a sense of calmness amongst the hectic outside. The garden is just so beautiful and calm, the rooms are gorgeous! There is no view, but I didn't miss that at all and I loved the four poster bed. The room ceiling is very high and the rooms are... More

I stayed at La Bocona for a couple of days while traveling in Granada.

I love this place! The service was great, the massage was great, and you can't beat the location. The only gripe I have is that the A/C unit in room #6 is way too small for the size of the room.

Great location and beautiful grounds with great art. The room we stayed in was warm and very noisy but then that could be true for many places in downtown Granada.
