My husband and I just returned from a visit to Granada and a stay at La Gran Francia. We were very happy with the hotel. Everyone working there was friendly, helpful and professional; it's in a good location just off the Parque Central; it's spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated; and the room was quiet and comfortable with an extremely good...

Nice play to stay in Granada. The swimming pool inside the patio is perfect. The hotel location is central and the breakfast was good. We slept really well. We recommand if you like the local hacienda type.

The hotel is just as beautiful as the photos suggest. It's a lovely break from the chaos of the main square. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants or to find a carriage ride. The rooms are lovely, clean and spacious. The meals are more expensive than some of the other places nearby but it's worth it.

Had a one-night stay here at this hotel in Granada after a very late flight into Managua. Wonderful staff, quiet location, delicious complimentary breakfast, and fresh drinking water provided in the lobby. Beautiful clean room with fresh a/c. Wifi wasn't accessible in the room, and only in the courtyard.

I count myself fortunate to have been recommended to La Gran Francia in Granada. I arrived expecting to spend 3 nights but was so charmed that I stayed for eight! From the moment I arrived and the receptionist handed me a chilled glass of pomegranate juice and the dining room cooked up their excellent tortellini, I was hooked. The hotel...

A little bit of historic charm in a town that is moving with the times. The room was more than adequate and the bed solid but sumptuous. Breakfast was tasty very much to my fastidious liking. Position near the cathedral was a bonus.

This hotel is perfectly located 1/2 block away from the main square. Within walking distance to good restaurants, shops, and the Calzada. The hotel itself is a gem of colonial arquitecture, inside and out. There is a pool in the beautiful courtyard, plenty of places to just sit and relax. Even though the hotel is very close to La Calzada...

The hotel is centrally located very close to the cathedral, but in a quiet street. the room was large with quiet but effective air-con. Other facilities a bit lacking - no coffee, safe or fridge. A water cooler was provided in reception, but often empty. The only hotel on my trip where breakfast was a choice from a menu, rather...

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
