La Gran Francia, Granada
Not the "best"
While this was an acceptable hotel for our trip to Granada, the hotel is on the "old" side. Clean enough but older. Room only had a small rocking chair, desk 2 beds and a nightstand. Would have liked to have a "regular" chair. (probably could have asked) Room was on the ground floor next to a busy street. Courtyard echoed into room so loud guests arriving at 2am could be heard and disturbed sleep. There is a brand new hotel opening in town that I think would be worth a look first, otherwise this is about as good as it gets. Get a room upstairs and in the back. The town is "quaint" but there are many good restaurants and many "excursions" you can take.

Great experience
Really accommodating to our needs, so stayed part of the time in great outbuilding really well renovated with great mod cons, and part in the main building fantastically renovated, comfortable rooms, lovely atmosphere and the best possible location in town. Great breakfast in the associated restaurant, which was also great for dinner and chilling in garden courtyard setting. Some quirks: free water which was great, and coffee maker in room, but you only get coffee for first night - go figure that!? WiFi generally OK but better in public areas than room.

Enjoyable stay in historic hotel
I picked hotel La Gran Francia because it looked like an historic hotel near the central plaza. It was. However, on the first night, the hotel sent us to a property they own down the road that is much newer called La Rouge. So if you actually want to stay in La Gran Francia, book a deluxe room rather than a King room. On the second night, I requested a move, which they granted after some discussion. La Gran Francia had a lot more character than La Rouge, and we really took advantage of the nice dipping pool at La Gran Francia. On the other hand, the bed at La Rouge was more comfortable. Across the way from La Gran Francia, they serve breakfast. It was usually fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice, scrambled eggs, bread, and a rice and bean mixture (a Nicaraguan staple). It was convenient, and the courtyard in which they serve it is very pretty. Are there little things the hotel could improve upon? Well of course, but this is Nicaragua not England or the U.S. Granada is a beautiful town, and we enjoyed our stay in Granada and at the hotel. The air conditioner worked really well.

terrible experience
1) they didn't find my reservation when i arrived 2) hotel hall was noisy all night for 5 nights 3) a cockroach appeared in the shower 4) room had a lot of dust 5) found my room door unlocked during my entire stay (5 days) after the cleaning lady was done cleaning 6) refrigerator was taken out of my room without noticing me and no one knows where it went (hope they dont charge it on my credit card) 7) doors were slammed during midnights

Room purchased not available
I would not book here. The room we booked was not available. We were told it was our fault for making a "last minute booking." While we did book the day before (probably about 22 hours in advance), I don't see how it is our fault we booked a room that the website showed as available and let us purchase. We were also told that we would not be charged by since it was not available and they would charge us a lower price, but that did not happen. (The manager was supposed to send an email to explaining this, but I have not seen evidence of this.) So, now I still have to contact the website after returning home from my vacation. They also have two locations, so we were about 3 blocks (3-5 minute walk) from the actual hotel. None of this was clear in the booking. Overall, it was a waste of over an hour of our last day of vacation trying to get a room, and we never got what we paid for. Ultimately, we did get a very basic room and it was fine. Just not worth what we paid.
