This is a charming place with beautiful paintings hanging on the walls and a classic environment. The restaurant is good, the breakfast service offers tasty options and the lunch and dinner menus include seafood and...

The hotel is so charming. I love the layout of it with the pool in the middle. Staff was friendly. The included breakfast is tasty too! Beds were comfortable and rooms were really good sized. My one critique would be to have the staff restock the rooms when they clean (we had glasses we used that weren't replaced and coffee...

This hotel is located very close to city center, you can walk to anywhere in the city form here. The service was great, the rooms clean, and quiet. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. Fluent English helped, since my Spanish is average.

What can I say.... Service, food, and hospitality was more than great. Provided with more than a room, gave me a calm place to eat and drink, as well the friendly staff who made sure we didn't need a thing. Thank you!!!

We had lunch here after our brief city tour of Granada. It was a beautiful building, restored to a great standard and with beautiful old touches. The food was delicious....The courtyard garden was just gorgeous - I just wish we could have spent more time there. The bathroom sinks were beautiful, too !!

Lovely boutique hotel located just off the main square. Large well furnished rooms with AC and first floor rooms have balconies over the street - great for people watching! Small swimming pool on the ground floor. Hotel has adjacent restaurant and coffee shop that are a bit classier than other offerings in the city

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
