I have been to Nicaragua on medical missions, on various occasions. We work long hours but extremely gratifying, but have to say that it's wonderful getting to the hotel and having a great night sleep. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are spacious and modern. These rooms are like a boutique hotel in NY or South Beach. The restaurant is... More

I chose this hotel by seen the beautifull pictures and calling them directly to ask questions regarding their rooms and services. They were extremely helpful and informative. We arrived late at night and they had a driver waiting for us and our rooms ready. Since the first night to the last night we were treated so well! We had two... More

We stayed here several nights (2 separate stays) and enjoyed the hotel. The service was excellent, the staff accommodating, professional, friendly and largely spoke English. Note: Room 3 (Vulcan) has the "fishbowl shower". Large, glass shower in the bedroom with a skylight that let in the early morning light was not our style. We were able to move in the... More

This is a beautiful hotel with great food, attentive staff, lovely gardens and a waiting shuttle to take you anywhere you need to go. Not downtown, but worth the extra time it takes to get there. Would DEFINITELY stay there again. Only area of improvement would be a hotter hot tub.

I stayed here on 2 occasions, greeted by staff like royalty & treated that way all through my stay. Staff was friendly & accommodating . The place was very clean & well kept. Restaurant served good meals @ a fair price! I do plan to stay there next time in Nicaragua !

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Contempo for Business. The hotel is more remote and not near much, but only a short drive from town. It was beautiful with mango and avocado trees, and felt like you were staying in Nicaragua, vs the more mainstream hotels in town. All of the staff was super friendly and very helpful. They... More

I have stayed at most of the nice hotels in Managua. This is my favorite by far. The only time I don't stay at the Contempo is when I don't have to go into Managua from the airport. Four things stand out, the style, the food, they pick you up at the airport and they have great bath tubs. If... More

This hotel has only about 24 rooms, and every one is different. The rooms range from ultra modern to contemporary to classic, The restaurant has a small menu, but there is a great variety. If you want to try Nicaraguan cuisine, there are many plates to choose from. The Chateaubriand is an excellent choice. Be sure to ask about the... More

We have chosen this hotel as a quiet place in the city, close to Masaya and Managua (on the carretera Masaya). During the day we were out on business/work outside of Managua and this was an excellent location for us. It is a boutique type hotel, the room was very nice, staff friendly (and they also spoke English) and the... More
