2/10 Poor

Poor customer service
Very poor customer servoce on the phone when attempting to get assistance with parking since there was no sign indicating where to park the vehicle. The person kept saying she doesn’t speak English and cannot help me. She would then hang up the phone. Someone from attempted call the hotel on my behalf and she experienced the same thing.

The hotel El Maltese provided a good experience, overall. The staff is great, and will try their best to accommodate your needs. Regarding our room, it is relatively simple, could've used a fresh coat of paint, but overall, was clean. There's plenty of room to store your stuff, a minifridge, hot water, hair dryer, etc. Wifi was on and off (mostly off), which was disappointing. The room we had had very poor isolation from the neighbor upstairs; we could hear his every move. Location is great, right in front of the Nicaragua Lake. You'll have to walk 10 minutes to get to the main strip. The area is mostly frequented by locals, so that is something to keep in mind if you're coming back late (11pm +) from downtown Granada. However, there is a police ''outpost'' nearby. If you are an early bird, you can catch a beautiful sunrise on the lake by simply crossing the street to the waterfront. Included breakfast is simple but we loved it, it definitely gets your day going, and it's typical Nica food.

Great Spot!
I had a wonderful stay! They are uber accommodating; from Mohammad, the owner, Carina, the main receptionist, to the security guard! The property is directly across from the lake with a terrific running route. You can just sit out front and enjoy the buzz of activity without much of the noise and movement. It's also within leisure distance of the heart of everything - close enough to enjoy as much as you'd like but set away from all that overly commercial touristic core. It's great value for money: central, supportive staff, well maintained and there's a gym of sorts.

Nice hotel close to ocean
The staff was very pleasant and recommended great restauarants to eat at. The air conditioner went out the day i arrived and the manager worked dilligently to get it back up and running. The hotel also offers bikes to ride around town with. Would recommend this hotel it’s a great value, and close to the water.
