Overlooking Granada’s Parque Colon (also known as Parque Central), Hotel Plaza Colon is an elegant building which has been restored to its original Colonial style.
The external courtyards and balconies overlook the park and the Cathedral, which is one of the most prominent buildings in the city. The swimming pool is located in the courtyard where guests can relax after a day exploring all that this historical city has to offer.
Each of the large rooms is tastefully decorated, and we highly recommend a room with a balcony overlooking the Parque Colon and cathedral. Unlike student town Leon, Granada is pretty quiet at night so there shouldn't be any late night shenanigans involving statues and traffic cones going on outside your window.
Why we love it
Even non-Spanish speakers might deduce that 'El Bar' is the hotel's bar, and the barman makes a mean Macau - Nicaragua's national cocktail, made of one part white rum, one part guava juice, a little ice and sugar and some lemon juice.
