We were on a Travelspere tour of Costa Rica and Nicaragua, 9th -25th November 2015. We stayed at six different hotels, some for 2 nights, some for 3 nights. We were on tours all day, so we used the hotel for bed and breakfast only, and had little time to use all their facilities. I don’t know what the hotels...

La Gran Francia just has a new addition to its grounds. The new addition is located in the corner from the restaurant and few minutes down from the main lobby. It is new and gorgeous! Rooms inside are modern. Staff is great as always! Great internet connection. Also, do not forget your swimming suit; pool is just as you enter...

Granada is a gem and the historical Gran Francia Hotel is the place to stay. Lovely big rooms, excellent service, fantastic Nicaraguan breakfast and great location. Closed to everything , do not miss the Cathedral, historical houses, the Nicaragua Lake and the islands.

We have made it a tradition for the past few years to come to Nicaragua during the month of August. We usually travel with a group. This time our group was large about 30 people. Last year we stayed for the first time in La Gran Francia and were happy with the location, the accommodations, and the service. Last year...

It's only skin deep beauty... Not so pretty on the inside... Meaning service much to be desired, feel of entering the room... Not as nice as I expected... Especially From the outer patio and facade of the hotel. Needs some TLC in rooms. Particularly the bathroom. Price was good, considering the tourist that Granada attracts. Won't stay again but that's...

Amazing courtyard. Great location. Very close to the square and main pub/restaurant street. Reception spoke English pretty well, if that's important to you. Everything is old but quaint. Clean rooms. Hot water. Excellent breakfast. I had the omelette and my boyfriend had the Nicaraguan breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Criticism - the pool is more decorative than useful.

I am often in Granada for business and come several times a year. La Gran Francia is the primary hotel that I book at. The staff has the highest level of customer service I have experienced. They are always so welcoming, accommodating, and we are always greeted by the General Manager who has now become a good friend. The rooms...

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
