The hotel has a very good location. Only 2 blocks from the main square. The Rooms are giant. Airco works great. The only thing we didnt like was the batheoom. It has a very strange smell (like An urinoir). The bathroom is not attached to the room so if you have to use the toilet at night, you have to...

The rooms of this hotel are fantastic, but after a better look you see its dacay. The space, the huge beds and the high cealings still make up for it but they have to be carefull. On our second night we found a sparrow flying and a mouse running through our room. The area of the swimmingpool is nice but...

Jose and staff are amazing. It is centrally located with easy access to local main streets, Central Park, Lake Nica, many historical churches. The massage is the best one I've ever had. I highly recommend this location to anyone who visits Granada! One I will definitely return to.

It was a colonial house that was turned into a lovely hotel. Great pool integrated in the house - very beautiful scenery. The rooms had A/C that didn't work properly - they didn't cooled down the temperature that much and they made so much noise, that sleeping with them ON was impossible. The fan was not very effective as well....

This was our second time at La Bocona. The rooms are exquisite -- palatial yet supremely comfortable, the pool is delightful, and the staff is kind and accommodating. The combination of colonial architecture and modern art is striking, the location is perfect, and it's good to know that the very reasonable cost of accommodation is helping the community. Because the...

We stayed at La Bocona to try out a new hotel as we typically stay at a neighboring hotel. It was a great overall option. The property is elegant. You feel like you are walking into an old grand house in Granada. The 2 courtyard areas (garden and pool) are delightful. The pool was pleasant and clean. It isn't huge,...

This hotel felt like I was house sitting a rich uncle or something. It's very small property, and he pool was right outside of our room, and no one else's, so it felt like our private pool, especially because we so rarely saw other people in it. The rooms are massive, the beds are comfortable and the staff is friendly....
