About this listing
Más que alojamiento, queremos que usted tenga la mejor experiencia de Nicaragua mientras descubre Granada con nosotros.
More than accommodation, we want you to have the best experience of Nicaragua while you discover Granada with us.
Casa Silas offers you a very comfortable Queen size bed and ensuite bathroom with hot shower. Our rooms each (listing is per room) are equipped with air-conditioning and ceiling fans, and also feature skylights for a gentle wake up call from the Nicaraguan sunrise and the parrots outside your window. The rooms look out upon the courtyard and swimming pool. Your most difficult decision at Casa Silas will be whether to have a morning dip in the pool before or after coffee. In addition to coffee we also offer a selection of fresh, local fruits, jams, and heartier breakfast fare to start your morning of exploring. We also offer complimentary high speed WiFi, VoIP telephone calls to the US, Canada and Mexico, and laundry service. There's more... full concierge services are also available, including arranging airport shuttle, car rentals, spanish lessons or area tours. Of course, we would be happy to take you on a walking tour of the city, a boat cruise of Las Isletas or if you prefer to explore on your own, we can arrange for a driver to take you to Volcano Mombacho or Volcano Masaya. There are also the artisan markets of Masaya or the pottery cooperatives of San Juan de Oriente. You won't want to go home empty-handed. We'll see you soon.
We are located a half block to the west of the municipal market which has served the community since 1892. We're a very comfortable walk to the central park, just beyond the market, passing through a few very active, colorful, sensory stimulating barrios. Pace yourselves, there's a lot to appreciate.
Public transit in Granada is frequent, fast, and affordable. Our colectivo taxis (C$10) passenger ride, urbanos (C$3), interurbanos or expresos (C$10+ destination dependent). Stations for Masaya, Managua, Rivas/San Juan del Sur are all located within 3 blocks of the casa. And if you prefer private car or shuttle we'll set you up and see you off in safety and comfort.

From start to finish a great experience. We have using Airbnb and are hosts and we rate our stay with Rob and Claudia as one of if not the best experiences we have in recent years. Claudia and Rob have a ton of knowledge of the area that is current and helped make or too short stay very easy. Of special note was the breakfasts. Yumm!
Easy hosts to get to know and an experience that we will repeat. Rob and Claudia have the hosting experience to know how to make things flow . Great space. Great food. Great time .
Saludos y un mil gracias...

Rob and Claudia have created (as other reviewers have said) an oasis in bustling Granada. We were met with open arms (and adorable dogs) and welcomed into their gorgeous home. The beds are comfortable, the AC cool, and the breakfasts absolutely delicious. Rob and Claudia were particularly helpful in planning our transportation in Granada and suggesting and setting up activities for us (we loved the horse and carriage history tour and the trip to San Simian at Laguna Apoyo. They were always available for advice on where to eat and coming home to cold beers and a dip in the pool wasn't half bad either! Highly recommended accommodations for those visiting Granada!
Casa Silas is a wonderful place to stay! I had the best time in Granada and Rob's place is within walking distance to everything fun! He made arrangements to have me picked up in the Managua airport and all went really smooth. Breakfast was awesome every day, and there are tons of great restaurants and bars close by. I highly recommend Casa Silas and look forward to returning the next time I'm in Granada :)
If you are looking for a place in Granada to stay this is the place, hands down! Just a few blocks from the square. The breakfast is good and the coffee is awesome! The host are bilingual and very hospitable. They were very helpful with booking our tour as well as arraigned taxi from and to the Costa Rica boarder. I left behind my blanky and the host is graciously working with me to get it back. I'm recommending this place to all my friends in Costa Rica for their exit trips! You should stay here too!
We had a great time in Granada. Rob & Claudia were great hosts, very helpful in suggesting things to do, restaurants, etc. The relaxed environment of Casa Silas was the prefect way to start our Nicaragua vacation.
This place is wonderful! Can't say enough good things - we will have to come back!
Rob and Claudia are really lovely hosts who put a lot of care into making you feel comfortable, really safe, and really well fed in the morning (breakfasts were awesome!). They also provide excellent recommendations and ideas for places in and around the city.
The space is perfect as well: just a block and half from a great outdoor market to really get a sense for Granada people, a few minutes walk from Parque Centrale and the many outdoor cafes, restaurants, and bars. The house has a wonderful open air interior courtyard and pool. The whole space has great art and decorations including in the rooms. WiFi was fast, and A/C was a nice treat in the heat of the late spring.
Casa Silas was our most enjoyable stay throughout our travels in Nicaragua. Rob and Clau were incredibly friendly and welcoming hosts who arranged for our pickup from the airport with a cheerful driver, Roberto, who accquainted us with the area as we drove to town. Casa Silas felt very safe and spacious, and met all of our comfort needs with great fans, air conditioning, and a great hot shower. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts each morning, delicious coffee, and many swims in the courtyard's pool. We also enjoyed time with the family's dogs who were always ready to be pet, but were in no way pesky to visitors. We greatly appreciated Rob and Clau's advice on where to eat, what to explore, and how much we should expect to pay throughout the city. By the time of departure, we felt more like old friends than just visitors at Casa Silas. I would absolutely recommend this as a great first stop in Nicaragua because of the graciousness of the welcome we received!
