The hotel in beautifully restored, the staff are helpful and gracious, the breakfast was delicious and the pool and hammock were refreshing.

Thank you so much for your review. It was wonderful to have you here! I totally agree that Granada is a true anthropological treasure...Founded in 1524 by Spanish conquistador Francisco Hernández de Córdoba, Granada is the oldest city of the Americas on firm land. Prior to being colonized by the Spanish and becoming an important trade route, it was the...

My husband and I stayed at La Bocona for one night prior to heading to Ometepe. The hotel was absolutely lovely. The staff could not have been more gracious; the location is much more quiet than on the square, but close to everything; the garden patio and the pool provided a restful place to relax at the end of the...

And, we'd have you back in a heartbeat !! When traveling, it is nice to be close to the action but not right in the middle of it--particularly if you are looking for an easy-going restful vacation. As we are located only two blocks away from the "Zona Viva" or main strip of central park, restaurants and shops, we can...

This hotel is extraordinary. In the centre of a bustling city yet once inside the courtyards there is a serene peace.

It was a real pleasure having you here! We do have quite the collection of antique furniture and pieces on display--more than one hundred items in the guestrooms and around the courtyards, ensuring the colonial lux atmosphere along with the 1860 architecture. We are happy that you enjoyed it so! Tantas gracias and hopefully we'll see you again soon, Nadene

I spent almost a week in Granada and looked at all the top hotels. Here is why La Bocona is the prize. It is off the main square (Granadians are early and noisy risers, so the square is unbearably noisy by 7 a.m.), the hotel is a 'full colonial' which means there are two patios, one a garden another swimming...

This converted grand colonial residence is in a central location in Granada, just a short walk form the main square, banks and market. It is peaceful and has attractive courtyards.
