I recently spent 3 nights here on my trip through Nicaragua. This charming little hotel has an excellent location, clean rooms, good pool, AC and wifi, free breakfast, and free water cooler. It's a nice place to relax and go to and from when taking in the sights (and heat) in Granada. Great value for the price!

Spent one night here during my trip to central america. The room was good, and price was decent. Nice and clean bathroom. Nice pool was a big plus, and the location was good. Only a few minutes walk to many restaurants, and the city park. On the downside the breakfast was nothing to write home about, and prices for beer...

Comfortable room with a nice shower, pretty good value for the price and a good location within walking distance of the main market. Service was pretty good though we were promised a bagged breakfast due to an early departure which didn't happen.

We had a great time in Granada, which was in part thanks to this charming hotel. The rooms were fabulous - well equipped rooms with ensuite bathrooms, queen size beds, fresh bedlinen and towels - everything you would expect. The breakfast was good and filling and the hotel's location is just perfect for exploring Granada. There is an onsite swimming...

I stayed here two times - first with a group and then again with my father-in-law. The A/C chills the room so quickly here. The bed was very comfortable, the pool is really refreshing. The place is incredibly clean, and well maintained. Breakfast is kind of a mini buffet, but quite good. Oh, and they leave a water jug out...

Located just 1.5 blocks from Parque Central but away from the noise. The property is next to a school. The rooms are nice size with mini frig and AC. The people running the hotel are so nice and helpful. Very accommodating and helpful with questions about tours and transportation. There is a small pool in the courtyard. Not big enough...

The rooms are clean and nice. The swimming pool is nice for refreshment and very clean. Service not super friendly but OK. Breakfast was tasteful! Early in the morning and at night there was a lot of noise because of loud Americans... only negative comment

This hotel is a really great value, great location, and great amenities. It's 2 blocks from the main square. The central bar/restaurant district is only a couple of blocks away, and the shore is about a 10 minute walk. Angela was really helpful and arranged for Chester the amazing to pick us up at the Managua airport at 3am. Desayuno...

We were pretty disappointed with this place. It's in a good location, on a quiet street, a few blocks from the main plaza and the decor, pool and cleanliness are great but the service was pretty terrible. Most of the time there was no one around apart from the ladies in the kitchen. One time the only people we could...

This hotel was everything it advertised and more! The room was very nice and clean, the staff was kind and helpful, and the location is perfect. The amenities (hot water, a/c, pool, breakfast) are rare for this price range. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Granada.
