Somoto was a bit of a ghost town in january, there is really nothing to do at night and you'll have to roam around on the dark streets to find a restaurant. However, it's fun to travel to this town because you won't see a lot of tourists there, and the nearby canyon is absolutely breathtaking. Staying in El Rosario... More

We stayed three nights and we're well taken care of by the staff. The facility was very clean and well taken care of on all accounts. The Wifi was very good. We arranged a Cañón tour through the front desk and it was outstanding.

and it was fine... nice breakfast, clean & comfortable rooms, fair price. Not too much to say about the area but I did enjoy walking around town, eating street food, chatting with the people. I moved to the PanAmerican (because Rosario was full) for a 2nd night - cannot say one was better than the other.

Good value for money. Clean bed, place to sit outside, tv when you like, fan or AC, wifi. A nail in the bathroom wall would however be great for the towel!! Location is fair. They can serve breakfast but no other meals, and there are hardly restaurants in town. A guide tells you about the canyon, but didnt mention his... More

I've stayed at a few hotels in Somoto and I enjoyed this one the best. The breakfast was great, with a different menu each day. The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms were clean and well maintained with reliable Wifi and a decent amount of channels on the TV. Located on a quiet street within walking distance from everything.... More

Friendly staff at this hotel made this a real standout. Hand made tortillas cooked fresh in an outdoor kitchen topped off a solid breakfast in a lovely patio with tropical plants. Good wifi access, walking distance to excellent restaurants (just a few) and stores. We went on a tour of the canyon with Reinel, a knowledgeable, gentle guide who spoke... More

We stayed two nights at Hotel El Rosario on either side of our tour of Canon de Somoto. We stayed in an upstairs room with 6 single beds. (We are a family of 5.) The room was clean, bright, and airy. The balcony gave us a lovely view of the mountains over the rooftops of the other houses in the... More

Our family of four was very pleased with our two night stay at Hotel El Rosario. Rooms are basic, but clean and offer satellite TV and wifi. The owner is very helpful with restaurant recommendations (not too many options in town) and has a good connection to an excellent guide for rafting the canyon (Guia Tour). Breakfast which is served... More

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Rooms were clean. stayed first at Hotel Colonial, not very clean or helpful and cost $15 more per night. The owner of Hotel Rosario took me to his doctor for something i needed and was helpful in supplying information about the area. They washed our clothes for us and were very friendly. At two blocks... More

El Rosario is a friendly place to stay. The staff is nice and helpfull and breakfast in the small restaurant is fun and tasty. Rooms are clean and really affordable. They can organize a good guide for the canyon as well. I would recommend this place!
