“Clean, effective with everything you'd expect for this price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I have stayed at the Intercontinental several times when I have needed to spend a few days in Managua. There are several smaller and friendlier places to recommend to most travelers. They are certainly not as expensive as the Inter. However, for sheer practicality, Inter stands out. It is only a short walk from a shopping mall if you need to buy something. The gym is not particularly well equipped, but works just fine. The breakfast buffet contains a fine selection of fruits and Nicaraguan dishes. Nonetheless, the place is pretty dull and formal. This is not the place to meet Nicaraguans and learn about Nicaragua. In fact, the Inter feels like most hotels anywhere in the world. A place-less space for global travelers.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for your comment, all your opinions will help us grow and improve, but the next time you come to Managua you can visit our Concierge desk, he will arrange a tour for you, in that way you can go to different places full of culture and where you can learn more about the country. Just as I tell you that on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays we have DJs and different activities that make the atmosphere of the hotel The Place to Be in town. Although if you want to know more about the city I'm sure that if you ask our staff will recommend you a place to visit.

Have a great day.

Best regards,

Sayra Somoza

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We stayed here for two nights before heading to a resort on the Pacific and would not stay here again. I had a rate of $145/night and somehow my rate jumped to $196 and $180 for the two nights. They also would not honor my Ambassador coupon for 1 free night. Understood the 15% tax on the nights but they couldn't explain the additional $3.39 each night. English was a problem, still fighting the rates with both hotel management and Intercontinental.

We ate at the Restaurant Factory inside the hotel for dinner one night and I got food poisoning from the lobster bisque. Food at the Voltes restaurant inside was good but the Restaurant Factory soured us (especially me) on the food there.

Beds were extremely firm, did not sleep well here

Would highly recommend going somewhere else

This hotel is a copy of the hotel of Honduras in the sense of design and ambiance, so if you travel through out central america don´t expect anything special. Same restaurantes, pool gym, decor, etc. In this case I would have to say the service was in some things better, but also in some other aspects worst than what I am used to in other countries. I can only say it is an OK hotel, well located and practical.

A really beautiful hotel with nice rooms, beautiful lobby and fantastic pool & lounge area. Wonderful views from the executive lounge. Very good food. Decent service. Way better than the Hilton down the road. From all I could see this is the Nr. 1 in town.

Two thumbs up for this hotel The entire staff was very kind. They accommodated all my dietary needs which at times can be pretty strict. Everyone was very easy to talk too and their English was good. There is a great steak and lobster restaurant in the hotel, some amazing sushi at NAU, and their breakfast buffet is packed with fresh fruit and fresh fruit juices. I couldn't be happier with my stay here.
