I have always loved downtown Tegucigalpa. The pedestrian streets, the parks, the museums and churches. If you are visiting town and want to get a feel for the soul of Tegucigalpa, you should stay in the downtown area, and the MacArthur Hotel is without doubt, the best spot. Totally renovated, sparkling clean, friendly staff that will go out of their... More

'Tegus' is a tough city...but Hotel MacArthur was a respite and the pool area was nice. We, too, were on a mission trip for a week. The other reviews are all accurate depictions of this hotel, the area, and the amenities. And yes, the staff was very sincere in listening and communicating in Spanish. I have one HUGE complaint that... More

It is a cheap hotel in the downtown of Tegucigalpa however is very clean and nice. Very good if you have a car or if you would like to walk for the downtown. The area is not nice but where you are in the hotel is better. Simple room and there are rooms with A/C or Fan.

Had a great one night stay here recently! This hotel is near all in Centro Historico. This is great for photographers like me. At night there is not a lot going on, but you can take a secure taxi anywhere. The hotel was VERY clean, very organized, and I was able to check in early. The staff was very attentive... More

We arrived on June 15 as part of a mission trip. At first I was a little put off by the location (didn't fit with the web photos) but the hospitality was great, the service was great, and the daily breakfast buffet was great. A/C also worked efficiently and quietly. There is no elevator service and we were all housed... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in May 2014. The hotel doesn't use local taxis for European guests. Instead they use a friend of the managers. This does ensure guest safety in the city but it does mean guests end up charging extra for his services. This is why it costs 300 Lempira to get to the Tica... More

The place was quite comfortable indeed. But the management was completely unable to provide any information to the customer about bus transport to Nicaragua. They didn't know which company goes to Leon and which does not. They did not even know that the Tica bus terminal had moved one year before from downtown to another place far away in the... More

We stayed one night in this hotel and were quite disappointed. The service was pretty good, but there were couple of things that ruined the whole stay. First of all, the pool wasn't in use at all. They had some kind of maintenance going on. Secondly, the restaurant was open only in the morning. We also felt cheated about our... More

This hotel had everything we needed for a brief stay in the capital. The staff were particularly helpful with advice on travelling to our next destination in Honduras. Room was comfortable and only drawback is the lack of a restaurant at the hotel and a very limited range of places nearby to eat in the evening.

stayed here for the first time last week. rooms were very clean. service was excellent. breakfast was great. and the view from the roof was just breath taking. i would stay here again. there aren`t any places for supper nearby, but we found that the little tienda around the corner has a beautiful courtyard and pretty good chicken tacos.
