Stayed in the New beautiful annexe, Rouge. The rooms were great with big comfy beds and a great shower and good toiletries. But apart from a plunge pool, there was nothing else there. No cafe or services at all in Rouge. Unfortunately the desk gave room keys to a con artist who robbed folks in the hotel while I was...

We had stayed at La Gran Francia three times before. We happily booked again for our last night in Nicaragua because we had loved it. We were imagining waking up and going right across the street for breakfast before catching our plane. We arrived hot and tired from travel and were told we had to walk "just around the corner"...

The hotel is really beautiful, charming and centrally located, and the service, especially from Fatima and Grisel, is fantastic. If you need anything for your stay, make sure to communicate with them: they are responsive, efficient and very nice. The rooms are charming and big enough. We stayed on the lower floor, and our only complain is that you can...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located right off the main square of the historical colonial city of Granada, La Gran Francia is a splendid ancestral building whose existence historians argue dates back to the years immediately following the founding of Granada, in 1524. This architectural jewel was restored during the decade of the 1990's, recovering the majesty and splendor of its heyday and today houses our hotel restaurant, bars and banquet hall facilities. In two distinct and centric settings, La Gran Francia Colonial Hotel offers its guests a total of 35 air-conditioned rooms, with all modern comforts and amenities. At La Gran Francia Colonial Hotel, you will be able to enjoy the best of Nicaraguan hospitality and the rustic elegance of colonial Granada. La Gran Francia has been recommended by Conde Nast Traveller and Samantha Brown from The Discovery Channel, among others. ... more   less
