The hotel is located on a main street in close proximity to bars and restaurants. The hotel's own cafe/restaurant serves AMAZING breakfast, cakes, smoothies and cocktails. They also serve lunch/dinner but we never ate there. The room was really clean and modern with a comfortable bed and good AC. The shower was lovely with good pressure but we couldn't seem... More

The Barrio Hotel was all good. We stayed in a double room, and actually stayed in three different rooms because we kept extending our stay. The rooms were very clean, nice beds, good a/c, cable tv, and wifi. The cleaning crew cleaned the room everyday. The location is as central in town as you can get, around the restaurants, the...

The coffee/breakfast bar is located on what seems to be the center of town. I stayed at this hotel for two nights when it was called The Azul Pitihaya . . . came back a year later, almost to the day, and Jonathan, the receptionist, remembered my name, the room I had liked so much, and told me to hang...

The beds are AMAZING and the shower was hot, the first hot shower in Nicaragua. The breakfast is nice and the staff is very friendly. I would recommend staying here if you want to spoil yourself! They have also a nice rooftop terracotta where you can see the ocean. Beautiful!

I was traveling to Nicaragua on my own for the weekend. As soon as I crossed the Costa Rican/Nicaraguan border, I noticed an email from Booking saying that my reservation had been cancelled due to failure to arrive on time. I chose Barrio Café because it looked cozy, bright, clean, and modern, and was afraid I would have to find... More

Antonio served us and he was amazing. The food was great. It was clean and all the staff was extremely friendly. I especially appreciated the staff being able to communicate in English. I will be back for breakfast again. Yum yum so good so good.

We stayed at the barrio cafe hotel for 5 nights and I would say our stay was ok. To be honest, I travel a lot for work and normal that means I stay in 4 & 5 star hotels but I've also stayed in a lot of smaller, quaint hotels and actually prefer B&B's. There are just a couple things... More

Comfortable room with AC and ceiling fan. Clean sheets and fresh towels. Very nice to come back to after long days out exploring and enjoying the area. Helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast was so delicious, fresh and a great way to fill up before heading out for the day. No REAL complaints. Just spotty wifi and some morning noise... More

The room was very modern, the bed was very very comfortable. The best bed in Nicaragua so far. Everything was very clean. They have a cool terrace on the roof with hammocks and a nice breeze. The service was incredible. One of our servers, Anibal, was very courteous, always treated us with a smile and had great suggestions for breakfast.... More

I was so happy to have found the Barrio Cafe Hotel!! My stay was comfortable and very clean. It seems like many reviews complain of the sound levels, yes the walls are not soundproof but the noise levels were really not bad, especially given the location. I specifically requested a terrace room on the second floor, and i recommend this... More
