Hotel Los Felipe is now Hotel Santa Maria The name just changed to Hotel Santa Maria. I came home one evening and the hotel had a new sign. Rumor has it that there was a divorce, and El Felipe is no longer in the picture. Contact info is probably still the same. Ariel at the front desk during the day... More

It was late at night when we arrived. But a man checked us in and was there at 4am when we checked out- so great service (no English spoken here). Let me start by saying we paid $35 US dollars for the room. So we did get what we paid for. When we got into the room, we were glad... More

We only left the hotel 1 hour to get some food/diner around the corner and within that hour both our creditcards and some cash were stolen from our (locked!) room!!! 1000$ were withdrawn within that night. So do not go here! It had to be an inside job because there is a big wall around the property and always someone... More

A $20 a night room with a fan. Clean bedding and towels. A bland room with limited decor but with windows out on to the shared area. No safety box but we locked our rucksack and attached it to furniture. A good option for a budget for a night or two, but the fan wasn't quite enough and I had... More

I paid for a room with airco but soon after check in the power was cut off. When I complained at frontdesk they told me that there was a problem with the powerstation and out of their hands. Obviously they never paid the bill.

On June 10 2014 a large amount of money, $340 US and 7500 Nicaraguan cordobas, was stolen from my room at this hotel. Staff were hostile to me and said it was not their responsibility. They lied, saying I had had visitors. They refused to let me access their security video. I complained to the police and Intur and the... More

Wow- what a dump. Cats, birds, and more cats and more birds. A dirty pool I would not let my kids swim in. An owner who is constantly on the computer playing games or facebooking, pretty much anything but cleaning or helping guests. Rooms very basic. Would have liked to stay at Backpacker Inn but they were full. Make a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It was in a beautiful setting with trees surrounding the rooms. There was a nice pool that was clean and refreshing. The rooms were small, but had a private bathroom, tv and we went for the fan option. My only complaint with the room was that the water in our shower took for ever... More

I stayed here the evening of 7/24/13 in transit to San Salvador due to the close 1/2 block proximity to the Tica Bus station in Managua. I arrived in evening from Leon and thought the $12 room with fan and private bath, which was few doors past reception on the right a few doors down from the kitchen, seemed adequate... More
