Hotel con Corazón featured as “our pick” in the Lonely Planet edition 2009
What does Lucas Vidgen, author of Lonely Planet Nicaragua & El Salvador, have to say about Hotel con Corazón?
Vidgen: “In a large, tastefully renovated building a few blocks from the central park, one of Granada’s newest hotels is also one of its most stylish, with a minimalist approach that is as comfortable as it is aesthetically pleasing. The Corazón’s rooms are simple and elegant, spacious enough without going overboard. The building blends traditional and modern styles to perfection, with much of the decoration and fittings made from recycled materials salvaged during renovation. There’s an on-site restaurant serving simple meals made from fresh local produce in a light and airy dining room. Out back, a good-sized swimming pool awaits, with deckchairs and a little thatched-roof bar. The icing on the cake is that the hotel is set up as an NGO and all profits go to the development of local schools, micro-credit loans and small business incubation.”
On top of that, Hotel con Corazón is featured in the first green index all the way in the back of the guide. Board member Petra de Boer says: “I am extremely proud that we are included in the very first listing of ‘good & green’ initiatives in the Lonely Planet. I hope many other tourist ventures will join us in the years to come. The greener, the better!”
