We stayed in La Siesta just for one night, it's a great place to relax after a hot day walking around Granada. Very friendly staff, lovely natural fruit juice (fresco) to enjoy in the little patio. I recommend this place.

Really nice hospedaje. Personel and owner were very friendly. Excellent breakfast!

    Every summer I travel to Nicaragua to work, play and travel. I go to have the true Nicaraguan experience. I wish to know the people and the culture. I discovered La Siesta five years ago and I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Granada. I have the comforts of a clean and comfortable bed and the company of people who truly love Granada and Nicaragua, Boris and Marcela. Marcela and I always have many things to discuss about the social projects that we are involved in through volunteer efforts. Marcela’s passion for Nicaragua is born into her as she is a true Nicaraguense. I have adopted the country. Both Marcela and Boris are always available to help me with my Spanish, to give me ideas where to visit and to give advice about the culture and the people that they love so dearly. Their staff has always been the most friendly and ready to assist of anywhere I have visited. La Siesta truly feels like a visit with family friends.
    Additionally, I have always loved meeting people from around the world, and La Siesta has guests from many different places. But, one thing I love the most about La Siesta is that the traveling Nicaraguenses also choose this lovely place to stay when passing through Granada or staying for an extended visit. It is a place with a true Nica essence and a global heart!

    Nous avons passé 4 jours sur Granada et les environs et dormi dans cette magnifique auberge de famille super bien entretenue.
    Ce fut le dernier hôtel de notre séjour et nous y avons passé d'agréables moments et de bons souvenirs vont rester.
    Le petit hamac où je faisais la sieste me manque déjà...
    Merci à Boris et Marcella pour leur accueil chaleureux, tous vos conseils (déjeuner chez Dona Tulida, excursions), de nous avoir fait partagé vos moments en famille !
    Vous êtes supers, continuez, on fera de la pub dès qu'on le pourra !
    A très bientôt,
    Ingrid & Farid

    We give our highest recommendation to La Siesta! in Granada, Nicaragua. A great value, very clean, family-friendly run by a lovely couple who very clearly have a passion for service and offer the highest level of true hospitality I have ever encountered in my worldwide travels. Its location on a quiet street a few blocks from the central city is restful and safe. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in January 2010. We arrived much later in the night than expected yet Boris and Marcela had waited up for us. At first, we were told we would have to move rooms the last night, but they managed to arrange for us to keep our same clean, comfortable room, with private shower, all 4 nights. We woke each morning to the sounds of gentle people speaking several different languages while working their Wi-fi gadgets, children giggling, and wonderful breakfasts cooking. We will always remember Granada fondly because of our warm welcome to Nicaragua at La Siesta!

    I´ve spent some days in this great hostel.
    Well furnisched and nicely clean.

    The owners Boris and Sandra are absolutely wonderful and eager to share helpful information to discover the region. The patio is very sociable and I loved every minute of my stay.

    My wife and I stayed at La Siesta in July 2008 for 2 nights, and we wish it was longer!! Great relaxing place felt like home, and the breakfast was excellent. I will for sure go back and stay. Prices are awesome as well!!!

    Thanks Very much!!

    We spent all together four nights at la Siesta and we can highly recommend the place! The rooms and the whole environment were very beautiful and tidy. But the best at this place are definately the great owners, Boris and Marcela together with little miss sunshine Triana. If you are looking for a place to stay in Granada only a few blocks away from the center with great ambiance and clean rooms, la Siesta is definately the place to stay.

    Merci beaucoup Boris et Marcela,nous gardons un trés bonne souvenir de la vistite a la Siesta et Granada!

    We had a wonderful experience at La Siesta, one that we will never forget. It was our first time in Nicaragua and our first stop. Boris, Marcela and their staff made us feel very much at home, very comfortable and welcomed. I think our experience of Nica would have been very different if we hadn´t had an immersion into the lives of people who live there because they love it. I took Spanish lessons from Marcela and we always went over time because we had so much fun! Well, at least I did! La Siesta is within walking distance of the center of town, but far enough away for it to be quiet and pleasant. The rooms are simple and very clean. The coffee is great as is the early morning conversation and information that they so gladly share. Numerous times both Boris and Marcela went out of their way to make arrangements for us so we could have an even better experience in Granada. I always felt safe and well taken care of by all of the people they recommended to help us. La Siesta is not for you if you´re looking for a big backpacking party scene...there´s plenty of dorm style hostels in Granada specializing in that. If you´re looking for something more intimate and low key, I would highly recommend La Siesta. Plus, you can´t beat the price for the quality. It is by far the best value of any place we have stayed. Muchas gracias amigos!

    Merci beaucoup à Marcela et Boris pour ce séjour très sympa à la Siesta ! J'ai apprécié l'ambiance détendue, la propreté des lieux et en bon français, le petit-déjeuner avec crêpes !
    Une super adresse à 2 pas du centre de Granada !!!

    Oui je sais, un peu tard pour le message ;-)
    Nous sommes passés a la Siesta avec un ami pdt notre voyage au costa rica / nicaragua, et c'est de loin l'endroit ou nous nous sommes senti le mieux.
    La gentilesse de Boris et Marcella, l'ambiance tranquille du lieu... les bons conseils et les crepes la matin, miam !
    Sans oublier evidemment les parties de scrabble nocturnes avec Boris, mais quand je reviendrais, promis Boris je te bat !!!

    Tout est impeccable a la siesta, et n'hesitez pas a tester la frintanga d'a coté, mais de toutes façons, Boris vous y enverra !!!

    Bonne continuation !

    A very nice place, clean rooms. Boris & Marcela are wonderful.
    They will give you a ton of useful information about the city, the area, the country...
    If you want they can also teach you spanish or french at a very inexpensive price ($5 / hour)

    It's almost like to be at home !!!

    I strongly recommend this address

  • Whitney Weber wrote on Jan 4, 2007:

    Boris and Marcela are the best hosts. Anyone wishing to visit Granada and have a relaxing, comfortable, and inexpensive place to stay should stay at La Siesta. In addition, they are both experienced Spanish teachers and take their jobs as both hosts and teachers very seriously while never forgetting to make you feel at home. I've visited Granada several times and always stayed at La Siesta. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

    I was there with my girlfirend in july 2006 and we are still keeping REALLY good memory! Go there!

    I stayed at La Siesta with Boris and Marcela for 2 weeks in March 2006 and found the experience delightful. They are gracious hosts and also excellent language teachers. They are very generous with their time and willing to share their knowledge of the country. I highly recommend La Siesta for a memorable travel experience.

  • Laurence wrote on Dec 4, 2006:

    This little hospedaje is probably one of the best in Granada. The rooms are nice and it is very useful to have access to the kitchen. Moreover, Marcela and Boris are FANTASTIC and they give a lot of information about the region. You feel more like living with friends than living in a hostel...

The atmosphere of Hospedaje La Siesta is very open and comfortable, encouraging cordiality and friendship between guests, staff and the two friendly owners: Boris and Marcela.
