I arrived in Honduras at the end of November and leaving tomorrow, for business purposes. I needed a budget hotel that is centrally located, safe and -important- has good Internet. A friend of mine recommended hotel El Estadio.
The hotel is located close to the center of La Ceiba and also in walking distance to La Zona Viva (bars!).
It is very safe; it has a metal gate where you can get a key for and at night they place another lock on it. You have to ring the bell and this prevents that 'unsafe' persons to enter. They also have security cameras all around. I think it is more safe than many luxury hotels where anyone can basically walk in and out.
The room is nice and complete. It has: a/c, 2 fans, fridge, TV, table, chair, closet, bathroom with hot shower. They have wireless Internet and the connection is excellent. They have hammocks on the balcony. The hotel is kept clean. On the ground floor there is an area with tables and a bar where you can hang around. They do not have a kitchen but can provide meals if you want to. They do sell beer!
The staff is friendly and helpful. They were forgiving when I came back in the middle of the night, slightly drunk... They speak English. Peter, the owner, goes all the way to help people out with anything you want e.g. tomorrow I have to catch a bus at 5:15am and Peter will bring me to the bus station, so I don't have to worry about a taxi in the middle of the night.
After living here for almost 3 months the people of the hotel became friends :-)
I can recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a decent place for a very fair price!
