The Hotel Colonial is bright, colourful, colonial-style property located just off Granada's main square. It features excellent rooms, plenty of character and two small but lovely swimming pools.
Dario Hotel, Granada, Nicaragua
The Dario Hotel is a charming, colonial property located just 100 metres from the Parque Central in the historic centre of Granada and only a few minutes from the great lake of Nicaragua.
There are wonderful views of the cathedral and the Mombacho volcano. Its original 19th century neoclassic building has been completely refurbished and now categorised as a building of historic interest. The 22 comfortably furnished bedrooms are set amongst a beautiful courtyard with a small pool, gym, internet access, a delightful 'chocolate' cafe and restaurant.
Please note this hotel is located right opposite the main bars so on occasion it can get a little noisy but generally it does not go on too late.
