This hotel has as much history as the city of Granada! The staff is super friendly and very accommodating. They will arrange tours and transportation for you too. I loved the bathrooms since the design was very colonial and it felt elegantly historic. I hope to stay here next time I visit.

The food and staff are really wonderful. The wifi wasn't very dependable unless you stood up at the front desk, so make sure that's not a necessary component to your stay. The rooms are spacious with beautiful views and hot showers. All things considered I would certainly stay again!

This hotel is in the ideal location in the city, right off the major square, views of the cathedral and mountains. The staff is wonderful and are always willing to assist. The B&B style is a nice touch for morning breakfast in a beautiful garden area. Rooms are large with modern bathrooms. The pool in the center of the hotel...

After a very long drive from Cosat Rica, we arrived in this "oasis" and immediately felt at home. The hotel is in the middle of town, near all the main touristy stuff, yet is relatively quiet. The rooms are very spacious with double queen sized beds, roof fan and A/C. Furniture comprises 2 armchairs, a wardrobe with TV and safety...

I stayed here with a group in April. Our room was very nice and reasonably bright. The bathroom was nice and it had a small window and a nice shower. There was lots of nice art and the common areas were well decorated. There were also many places to sit. The pool is quite small but it will cool you...

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.

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.

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
