Clean, slick modern with Japanese flair, the Contempo is a welcome sight amidst the chaos that is Managua. We were hungry and stuck in the awful Santo Domingo traffic when we saw the Contempo sign. We decided to try their restaurant, Azul. The restaurant is beautifully designed, light airy bright. The staff was pleasant.

We stayed at Hotel Contempo for one night before leaving Nicaragua. The hotel is modern and looked like it was primarily used by the business community, but the staff could not have been more welcoming to our family (3 kids). Every staff member we encountered was so pleasant and helpful and everyone spoke English. What really sold me on this... More

Great to be back for a second time and stay at Contempo!! Staff was great as always, customer service lovely, location is just about right either for going into the city of Managua or heading out of the city. Juan Carlos, Josue ,Hernaldo thank you very much for serving us, made us feel at home with a touch of royalty!!... More

Close enough to the airport to be convient but far enough away from city area. Felt safe and the staff was great. Helped grab transports to the airport a few times. Stayed in two different rooms (arriving in Managua and then on the way home before an early flight). Restaurant staff was great as well. Car transport waiting when we... More

The hotel is the only modern boutique hotel in the city, and has great style (especially in the restaurant where great dinners and free breakfasts are served). The service is good and since airport transfer is normally included, why even consider staying at the unappealing Camino Real or Best Western? Massages are also affordably priced. We always stay here if... More

Normally I abstain from writing reviews about places I don't recommend. However, considering the general happiness with this hotel and not least the price level, I will make my comments. We travel with back packs and a 6 year old. This might be the reason why the staff at Contempo did not seem to bother to give us the attention,... More

A hotel with staff ready to please Hotel Contempo is as the name implies a contemporary styled complex. Sometimes design trumped utility in the bathroom. There is a small gym, lap pool and hot tub on premises. The restaurant has large glass walls that overlook their garden . Nicaraguan beef is quite excellent ,grass fed and free range, and was...

After 5 years without a vacation, my husband and I were really picky about where to stay in regards to quality and hospitality. This hotel met our expectations. The staff was very courteous and the room and hotel facilities kept clean and high quality (as we expected). We decided to stay here based on my dad's recommendation. The hotel did... More
