The steak at the restaurant was as good as any prime cut at the best steak houses. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful with transportation and...

The La Gran was a beautiful building, with restaurant directly across the street. However, our stay was directly on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and the parties and parades were constant and loud. We loved our small balcony looking directly over one of the main square streets, but paid for it in noise. The staff was kind and helped us...

Stayed at the site a block away from the main square. Still a greta location. Rooms were more modern and clean. Staff at both locations were extremely helpful and nice. The only thing that I expected that we did not get for the price we paid was hot water.

We had an unplanned night and decided to check out Granada. La Gran Francia has a room at a reasonable rate. The room was very nice in an old hotel kind of way. All the rooms overlook an interior courtyard with a small pool. Although the widow faced the street, it was quiet. The front desk arranged a ride to...

It was a absolute pleasure to stay in this master piece of colonial architecture. The rooms are gorgeous, clean and the bed comfortable. The staff here are pleasant and more than happy to help out if you lack the gift of Spanish. We would highly recommend staying here if you love old buildings. This one has been restored to perfection....

I arrived early after overnight flight and transfer from Managua, and they were graciously able to accomodate me. They were also able to schedule transfer back to Managua at the end of my stay. This is a beautiful colonial building right in the center of Granada

Stayed at this hotel for three nights as part of a tour of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Put quite simply, this hotel could not have been in a better location- being just around the corner from the main square and Catherderal- literally 2 mins walk away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located right off the main square of the historical colonial city of Granada, La Gran Francia is a splendid ancestral building whose existence historians argue dates back to the years immediately following the founding of Granada, in 1524. This architectural jewel was restored during the decade of the 1990's, recovering the majesty and splendor of its heyday and today houses our hotel restaurant, bars and banquet hall facilities. In two distinct and centric settings, La Gran Francia Colonial Hotel offers its guests a total of 35 air-conditioned rooms, with all modern comforts and amenities. At La Gran Francia Colonial Hotel, you will be able to enjoy the best of Nicaraguan hospitality and the rustic elegance of colonial Granada. La Gran Francia has been recommended by Conde Nast Traveller and Samantha Brown from The Discovery Channel, among others. ... more   less
