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

I only stayed here for one night but it was very enjoyable. The building is a beautiful old colonial villa with a swimming pool where the original garden would have been in the centre of the building. Our room was large with large wooden furniture. The bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was OK with a fantastic personalised ornate ceramic...

If you are looking for probably the best hotel in town this is should be your choice. Located a few steps from the cathedral and main square, this hotel is just extraordinary! Very welcoming staff, comfortable rooms and impressive decoration of the main hall and rooms of course. There is also a nice pool inside the main court.

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
