Me and my fiancé recently caught a bus from Guatemala City to Managua. The bus came into Managua late at night but a rep from Don Carmelo was there to meet us as we got off the bus following a quick Email to the hotel a couple of days previous. Free shuttle pick up as soon as we stepped Foot... More

For $30 a night it's hard to beat the place. Staff was great. Free airport shuttle. Minimal breakfast (fried eggs with a piece of ham, slice of toast with butter, juice and a cup of coffee) but adequate was included. TV remote did not work. Bathroom so small one knee was in the shower and the other out the door... More

This is a great little hotel in central Managua. The rooms are very clean and come with AC, private bathroom, and free wifi. The owner, Henry, is fluent in English and is extremely helpful. The staff are very nice and efficient. The free shuttle service is great too. Highly recommended.

This hotel is run by a lovely chap called Henry who bent over backwards to give me a pleasant stay. the room as clean, attractive, with a big comfortable bed. The bathroom facilities were sufficient. The dining room has a nice double aspect with small balconies overlooking the fairly quiet road below. Wi-fi and a free pick-up / drop off... More

I'd never heard of this hotel and it's in the heart of Managua! In terms of walking around this part of town, at night - not so much, but you're going to find that anywhere. In terms of the hotel's locale itself - you're not far from anything really. The hotel is clean, modern decor and friendly staff. They have... More

Traveling by myself as a young woman, being in Managua has always made me a little nervous. This time around my flight didn't get in until almost 1am, so I knew I was going to have to find a place to stay. Hotel Don Carmelo caught my eye because of the price and free shuttle service. The day I booked... More

We stayed in this hotel twice - once on our way into Managua and another on the way out. We loved the free shuttle service, especially because we arrived late / left early in the morning and it would have been difficult trying to arrange a taxi to accommodate us. They also picked us up at the bus station which... More

We had a triple room for two people and you could hardly walk around the beds as the room was so small. We couldn't even close the bathroom door as the toilet was in the way. The bedding was clean but that's about all that was good. No filtered water and the area was not safe to walk in. The... More

Very small room, bathrooms just marginally okay. Good actually not close the bathroom door to use it as it is so small there is no room. Breakfast was dry toast and jam with coffee. The best thing was their shuttle, on time and brought you directly to the hotel but it was not very close to the airport – at... More
