When I visited Granada I had lunch at the Casa San Franciso Hotel, Restaurant and Bar. The lunch was delightful and I checked around the hotel and it looks like another great hotel in Granada to stay at. The Casa San Francisco is owned by Terry Leary, Nancy and John Bergman. It is located at Desde el Convento de San Francisco, Calle Corral #207, in the centre of old Nicaragua, close to everything you would like to see in Granada.
This wonderful hotel in Granada is clean, with eclectic décor fused with a Latin American style and a distinct charm. It’s a small hotel, one would say, if to compare with others, let’s call it a boutique hotel. Each room has a balcony or private patio with views of the gardens, fountains or pools. The bathrooms are beautifully tiled. Air conditioning, great mattresses, linens, internet access is available and complimentary breakfast comes with every suite. The price ranges from $60 to $80 US for a room. As with all hotels in Nicaragua, the costs of a hotel room is extremely reasonable compared to other countries. Prices differ depending on the season, but whatever season, it’s a bargain. This is the current reality in Nicaragua. There is a lovely swimming pool, tropical greenery everywhere and a couple of green parrots seem to make their home in the tropical fauna by the restaurant and pool area. Beauty surrounds you.
Hotel Casa San Francisco Restaurant
The restaurant serves a menu of Mexican and Latin cuisine. Our lunch of fish, rice and salad was delicious, promptly and professionally served. However, I wished, just a little, that the servers had been a little more friendly to our table of six guests. No complaints about the food though. And there’s a lovely dark bar at the Casa San Francisco where you can savour any drink you wish on a warm sunny afternoon when you are seeking a quiet moment of respite from your travels in Nicaragua.

I’ve added some photos of the Casa San Francisco Hotel in Granada which will give you some idea of the hotel and the delightful lunch I had at their restaurant. We all enjoyed our lunch at the hotel immensely.
