A/C was cold and the water ran hot (when wanted). Did have a problem connecting to WiFi, but other than that it was great. Friendly people and breakfast was awesome. They have a lot of rooms which worked well for our mission group on the way North into the rain forest.

Area is very safe . you will see guards around all day because ,the presidencial house is on the same neighborhood , adding more security to us the guests at the hotel.

The staff was helpful and bilingual. The walls were interesting, painted murals. The room was airconditioned and the shower worked well. This is definately a budget hotel and not in the best repair. The location around the hotel was safe due to armed guards around the president's residence. Nothing of interest in the immediate area. There are better options for... More

A homely place with lovely decor. We stayed there three nights. A little far from the centre of town but a safe area and taxis are not expensive. Can be noisy. On the second night the reception was playing loud music late. They are prone to turn off the water in the late morning but will turn it on again... More

This was one of the less expensive options in Managua. The place is clean, the rooms spacious and the showers have the best hot water pressure I experienced in Central America. While the block of the hotel is safe given it's right in front of the President's house, the outer area is shady. Not the best place to stay if... More

The hotel overall is really good, the beds, the price, the shower, the common areas, the location is very convenient, even thou there is not very much to do around. The hotel is located next to Nicaragua's President house, so expect a lot of police and army presence. The first thing I noticed when entering the hotel is the "Murales"... More

My impressions didn't get off to a good start because they took several days to reply to me e-mail requesting transport from the airport on arrival. However they did eventually arrange it and I made a pleasant landfall after a long, tiring flight. The hotel, more of a guest house than a standard hotel, is in a quiet part of... More

Centrally located, clean, working air conditioners and internet, and hot water, beds reasonably comfortable but had to ask for towels. No external facing windows in the rooms but each quite competently painted after a province or city in Nicaragua. Some limited but safe parking - the hotel is opposite Daniel Ortega's house and shares the security! Faults were a very... More

We call it "voice to voice" was one of the ways the owner's son described Nicaraguans behavior. He was a law student spending time at the hotel to help it gain in popularity and tourist trade.
