Hotel Casa Capricho
Ranked #36 of 75 Granada B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 April 2016 via mobile

The reason we were there was that most other places were booked for the poetry festival.
We were walk-ins and paid for 6 nights.
The room had a spiral staircase up to the second bed which cut a great deal of the space from the room. The door out if the room did not seal at the bottom and had no inside lock or latch, so anyone with a key could have walked in.
Because of the odd floor plan the tv had to be moved to view it.
The on demand shower head was cheap and fell apart often while taking a shower.
Breakfast was nothing special. There were no signs to let you know when it might be served by the rather surly, unsmiling, unfriendly staff.
The desk personnel were friendly enough but when we had to leave a day early they refused to refund the one day. We had to go through the credit card with a dispute. They claimed it was against their policy which we never saw and were never given.
There are much better places in Granada to stay and I would recommend booking one of the others.
On the plus, it is three blocks from town center.

This is a nice little hotel centrally located. It is an old colonial style building, very charming, with a little pool. I felt very welcomed by the friendly staff and very safe. The room was small but clean and I used the air condition during the night which was comfortable.

Casa Capricho encompassed all the things I wanted and more during my stay in Granada. A boutique hotel, with a colonial-feel style, perfect for couples on a budget. Room with AC is clean and spacious. Also included in the price was breakfast. Gallopinto and eggs were my preference for the three days I stayed there.
Centrally located, the hotel is two blocks from the lively "La Calzada" ( Main Street with restaurants and bars) and one block from the famous San Francisco Convent in a safe and quiet area. The personnel were very helpful and available to assist me with any booking needs (they booked my trips to the Mombacho and Las Isletas).
The pool was perfect for a mid-afternoon cool down from the hot Nicaraguan days. If you're looking for a boutique hotel in the Granada area for a great price, I definitely recommend Casa Capricho.

Centrally located in the beautiful town of Granada. Nice and clean room with air-condition. Shared kitchen, nice pool and cosy common areas. Helpful staff, some speaks english. Good breakfast, however the time for breakfast was a bit late for us (8.30), seems like they divided the guests in a breakfast schedule, so it might be possible to change the time.

It doesn't look like much from the outside in keeping with colonial architecture prevalent in Nica. This hotel is clean and comfortable with a beautiful courtyard with a dip pool and plenty of space to relax use computers (good wifi) watch tv or listen to music. There are 2 kitchen areas to cook your own food but a delicious and varied breakfast is included with the price of the room. The real win is the staff. Anna the cook was great and Irvin the front desk guy were so friendly and helpful with advice and making arrangements for me. I can't wait to go back.....A real gem

Room Tip: All rooms look into courtyard as with most in nica
