Hotel Granada

This hotel rooms are well kept and quiet. There is a courtyard that is filled with plants. The hotel has hot water ALL the time. This can be rare in some areas. There is a pool and resturant.

This is a nice little hotel.

Casa San Francisco 1

The hotel is very unassuming from the outside but has a lovely courtyard with a swimming pool. We paid $40 for a double room with private bath which included breakfast as well.

The staff are very helpful and friendly and there is a nice pool in the small courtyard garden.

Hostel Oasis: Amazing hostel

This is a fantastic place: I have read mixed reviews but for this is the best hostel I have ever stayed at: for $7 a night (with tax), you can get a bunkbed in one of the three co-ed dorm rooms. They are big, very clean and have beautiful chandeliers and art on the roof. Try to get a bed close to a fan as the heat can be INSUPPORTABLE. There are also private room for quite a bit more that can have private or shared bath and air conditioning.

Pool- small but refreshing! Cafe where you can get basic breakfast, lots of hammocks, couches, chairs and tables for relaxing, visiting, drinking, reading; swings in the courtyard, free internet until 10 pm, a free 15 minute phone call anywhere in world every day (except for Denmark and Central America), charge soft drinks and water to your tab, lots of clean shared bathrooms (cleaned twice or three times a day). Staff was quite helpful and the art on the walls was beautiful. Located central Granada 2 blocks to the central park.

Hospedaje Cocibolca: The best low-priced hotel in Granada

I've tried a few places and this one is a terrific value. It's on the main drag between the main square and the lake, and you get a comfortable, if small room with a balcony. A good place to meet other budget travelers.

The Bearded Monkey hostel: The Bearded Monkey hostel

The Bearded Monkey is a very cool hostel located in downtown Grenada. Known as a great place to meet other travelers, it has a restaurant and bar and very cool common areas, hammocks, offers movies, and is nearby to the local sights.

The room was clean, I stayed in a large shared dorm with 10 other people - the huge room actually has 8 beds, but they let people throw mattresses on the floor when the beds are all full.

It costs $4US per night for a bed, and $2 for a mattress or hammock when they fill up. Lastly, the staff almost all speak very good English.

Known among travelers as a great destination in Grenada, therefore there are lots of cool people to meet and get travel info from.

For example, I am headed to Island Ometepe and I met two girls that had just returned. Their tips? 1. Dont feed the spider monkeys because they bite (she is on her way for a rabies vaccination as we speak) and 2. Dont stay at Hotel Central in Altagracia (she is trying to get her passport replaced, but her mp3 player, wallet, etc. is all gone - stolen while she slept).

The Monkey Hut: Quick get-away from Grenada

The Monkey Hut has the same owners as The Bearded Monkey and it is a short 20 minute ride away. I went to spend the day - it is on Lake Apoyo, a HUGE volcano created lake with warm hotspring-fed water. They have tubes, kayaks, and a canoe, as well as a basketball court and other sports and games to pass the day. It is a very relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a little R&R.

I would recommend staying there, but the fee of going is US$4 entry plus US$2 for transport (US$1 each way). It is only US$9 per night to stay and you dont have to pay the entry fee.

They have some minimal food there, as you are expected to bring your own food. They have a nice kitchen that you can cook in.

Transport is offered from The Bearded Monkey.

AMAZING views! You are actually swimming in the crater, which is filled with fresh water, with big mountainous cliffs all the way around. The lake is HUGE and goes to depths of 900 feet! It is crystal clear, so you may want to consider bringing a snorkel, although the fish are rumored to be small and maybe not too incredible to see.

Another Night in Paradise: Fabulous Affordable B&B

Note: I recently heard that the owner, Donna has sold this B&B, not sure who owns it now.
A wonderful Bed and Breakfast with a fabulous host/cook, Sergio and owner, Donna. Donna is an American who runs a project for streetboys in Granada. The rooms are funky and spotless. The prices range for rooms but are approximately $20US night for a double.

Patio with TV and hammock!

Tierra y Sol: Excellent Small Hotel

Not on anyone's map yet, that I know of, this little hotel is clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. But what really blew me away???? The food. Turns out the owners, husband and wife, are professionally trained cooks. They spent most of their lives in the States for edcuation and working in the culinary arts industry. The husband is a master with any dish and his wife has unbelievable talent with deserts. I have eaten at fine restaurants in many of the places you see on my map. I have not had such good meals as at this little hotel/restaurant. Give it a try. And price? Rediculously low for what you get. They both speak perfect English.

Hospedaje Cocibolca: A nice and central place

Very centrally located, at only a few hundred metres from the Parque Central of Granada, you will find the good guesthouse "Hospedaje Cocibolca". In this street, the Calle La Calzada, you will find several guesthouses, bars and restaurants, so you never have to walk far in the dark when you want to go out for a bite or a drink at night (also very pleasant when it is pouring with rain).

Downstairs you'll find the reception, some small corners where you can sit down to watch TV, read a book or have a drink. And here you'll also find the kitchen that you can use if you want. Upstairs there are the rooms, from where you have a great view of the Cathedral and the rooftops of all the houses in its surroundings.

The rooms are very basic, but clean. There is a fan that is really necessary because it can get very hot in the rooms, a simple bed and a small table and that's it. You will also get a private bathroom that is tiny, but at least you have a hot shower and a good toilet. Only disadvantage: the rooms are not mosquito-proof and that can get pretty annoying when you have 20+ mosquito-bites all over your body.

Final opinion: a good place to stay. The rooms are well worth the 12 dollars you have to pay for it.

Hospedaje Central: Most Popular Hostel in Granada

Most popular hostal in the city. Easy to see why. Lots of travellers hang out in the fabulous, affordable restaurant which is open to the street. You can spend hours sipping free tea/coffee while writing in your travel journal, reading guidebooks or just people watching. Great library of books.

Hotel La Siesta: Like visiting friends

Hotel La Siesta

Boris and Marcela run an incredibly clean and welcoming guesthouse. They make your visit feel like visiting old friends or relatives in a faraway place. It was the best hostel during our entire trip to the CA-4.

Bed is comfortable, and though it was warm in the evenings, the fan was plenty to keep one cool.

The breakfast was quite pleasant, and the communal kitchen was a nice convenience.

Boris was especially helpful with directions and travel advice. We spent Christmas eve, there, and the owners regaled us with Happy hour.

The location is not central, but the town center is a 10-minute walk, and most of Granada is within 20 minutes walking.

Laundry service was economical, although you get to view your clothes drying in the main courtyard.

Price was $25 for a double in 2009.

Address is Calle el Almendro, de los Bomberos 100 meters Norte y 10 meters este. Actually, all the cab drivers know the hotel, and you could get there from anywhere in central Granada for $2 or less.

Owners speak Spanish, English, and French

Hotel Casa La Luna, Granada, Nicaragua: Granada's best secreat

An incredible great place, I have stayed in Granada many times and I have never stayed
in a better place. The price is just so low, i could't beleive it.
So close to the central park, it is in the hart of granada. super safe.
rooms are just perfect, private bathrooms, new construction, super clean, very comfortable
and after a nice long day touring Granada with the help of the friendly nice staff, it was time to enjoy a beer in the courtyard, full of plants and water fountain.
You just can not get a better deal than that.

Great courtyard with lots of plants and a water fountain
new construction, very clean

Hotel Dario: High End Hotel In Granada

When I read the reviews for this hotel I was expecting a lot. Then when I showed up and saw the entry I thought, dang, I was expecting something different. Actually, the outside is not a good reflection of the interior. Rooms are a bit pricy as is the food but both are of excellent quality. No disappointments with this hotel. Right in the middle of all the night life action as well.
