Once again, Hotel La Bocona has exceeded our expectations! We were in Nicaragua for about four weeks and wanted to spend two of those weeks in Granada. We booked a room (6) for that time and had absolutely no regrets! The hotel has installed air conditioning in some of the rooms making a difference with the level of humidity in...

I had a wonderful chance to stay at La Bocona twice in January of this year! I have travelled to many places in the world and stayed in many lovely hotels. I can almost say, that La Bocona is my favourite. I love architecture and this historic building has been restored beautifully retaining all the original features. There are only...

We stayed for 4 days and had a great time. The rooms are HUGE and the outdoor seating is delightful. The artwork gracing the walls is inspiring. The breakfast was delicious (jamon crepes w/ gallo pinto!) It's very centrally located so you can walk all over the city. We were there during holy week and got to see a few...

While reviews were generally positive, there was such review scatter I had to see for myself. My heart sank a little during the check-in when the receptionist eyed the Nicaraguan gentleman I had in tow suspiciously. He relaxed somewhat gradually when I let him know it was my fabulous driver, headed back to Managua for the night. I'm wondering if...

We stayed at three hotels in Granada and this was my least favorite. It is far away from the center of town, not a long distance by any means but in comparison to other hotels in the city, this is not the most centrally located. Given that there are tons of options in better locations for better prices, that is...

This is the PERFECT place to stay in Granada!! It is close enough to all the action like the cathedral and the lake, that is is easy to get around but a little bit out of the way so that you are not kept up at night by noise. The food is AMAZING (see pictures). The staff is SUPER friendly...

This hotel is so unique and so cool. My hosts at the hotel were nothing short of perfect. They were so helpful and friendly. Yes, it's true that some of the staff don't speak English. You're in Nicaragua. A lot of people don't speak English. It pays to learn some Spanish or carry a phrasebook or use a smartphone app....

I think your comments really help the reader to view La Bocona, Granada and Nicaragua with a realistic perspective. The beauty is that what is on offer is an authentic, almost untouched cultural experience that is not available at most vacation hotspots around the world. Thank you so much for your time to review. Much appreciated, Nadene
