“Amazing experience in Granada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

We stayed at La Gran Francia for 5 nights and could not have had a better experience. The inner courtyard and decor of hotel is done in a historical colonial style that is both beautiful and charming. The room was quiet, spacious and the bed plenty large and comfortable. We especially liked the central location of the hotel as it is a stones throw away from the main square and other goings on in the town. The staff was super accommodating, friendly and helpful in guiding us to various activities, arranging transportation and providing various other tips as well. All in all it was a wonderful experience and would love to be back if we make it down to Nicaragua again.

The hotel is located at one of the corners of the central plaza but still very quiet. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable and are also nicely decorated. The hotel has a swiming pool right in the open air interior central place. The breakfast is served at the restaurant on the other side of the street, and is good. We absolutely enjoyed our stay there and would definitely like to go back. It was one of the best hotels we had on our 3 week trip through central america.

I stayed here for over a week and my stay was very pleasant!! The staff is super kind and the room was very clean and had AC. The hotel is so beautiful and is centrally located which makes it very convenient. I can't wait to return as I'll definitely stay at La Gran Francia again!

My girlfriend and I have stayed at most of the top rated hotel/B&Bs in Granada and we have been in Nicaragua for 5 weeks now. We stayed at La Gran Francia two days ago and the room quality was the best so far. The king bed was super comfortable, with great linens, many comfy pillows. The bed was to die for really. The room was large and tastefully decorated and well insulated so it kept cool and quiet. If you want a good night's sleep in Granada, you cannot beat this place!

The narrow courtyard and pool is nice, but not expansive. We liked swimming and reading here, but you won't be able to get any sun in this place. That's ok for us. The location is probably the most central and convenient you will find in Granada. The staff is helpful and friendly and more professional and polished than most places which was nice.

We are currently staying in Hotel Patio del Malinche which is nice and well run, but we want to return to La Gran Francia which currently has no vacancies. The room quality is just far superior to Malinche.

The only place in Granada I would rather stay than Gran Francia is Miss Margrits which is usually booked full. No place in Granada beats Miss Margrits for feeling at home and comfortable, and I will say now that Gran Francia is our personal number two! I will now list in order what we liked best in Granada.

1. Miss Margrits 2. La Gran Francia 3. Malinche 4. La Islita 5. Casa Cubana

We have looked at many places in Granada and chose not to stay at other places, so being on our list means they are all good. Of note, we heard that La Bocona was nice, but chose not to stay there because no air conditioning as rooms are too large an not insulated for that. The huge rooms have mosquito nets which adds to the heat. It is a big place, but we didn't like the vibe. It was also obvious that these rooms would be very noisy since they are on the main street where trucks and cars drive on all day AND night. We know from experience that this street is noisy because we stayed at Casa Cubana also on the same street. Casa Cuba is beautiful, although smallish courtyard. The rooms are nice, but very noisy and we won't stay there again because of this.

I hope this helps future travelers here!

Room Tip: Away from the street is best as always in Granada at any place you stay.
