I have stayed here several times and I am never disappointed. Close to the central square,the colourful decor, quiet ambience and friendly staff make it a pleasure to return. Choose a back room if possible as it is away from any street noise and they are also located around a lovely pool. Breakfast is an option but is not included...

This hotel was a last minute booking and was in a great location just off the main square. Despite that it was quiet inside and had two pools plus comfortable rooms with air con. Staff were friendly and helpful. Easy walking distance to major attractions in the city.

I was in Managua for two weeks on business, and wanted to spend my weekend in Granada. I chose to stay at Hotel Colonial because it was close to the Central Park, and to La Calzada (the strip with the bars) and the online pictures looked pretty. To be honest, I didn't expect much from a hotel where the nicest...
