A small hotel with great character, located just off the main square of the historic colonial city of Granada.
The attractive building is a typical example of Nicaraguan colonial architecture and was thoroughly restored in the 1990s. The hotel has comfortable, air-conditioned rooms, all of which have broadband internet access. Balconies with wrought iron railings overlook the interior patio, which contains a small swimming pool.
The hotel also has a good restaurant and two bars, which are housed in a separate building just across the street.
La Gran Francia makes an ideal base for exploring Granada, as well as other local attractions including the cloud forest of the nearby Mombacho volcano, the famous markets at Masaya and the archipelagos of Lake Nicaragua.
The building was once the home of the French Duke of Praslin - hence its name.
