I've only been to Nica once, last year. Going again in 2 weeks. My guess is the Colonial you are asking about is the one in Granada, just off the plaza. If you are only going to be in Managua then you probably won't find the Colonial you are asking about. But Granada is like an hour from Managua by little express shuttle buses, cheap trip. And it's an interesting little city. Quiet, quaint, and worth seeing. Walk, take a taxi or horse cart down to Puerto Asese by the lake. Enjoy.
I have lived on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua for 15 years.
When I'm staying a night or nights in Managua; I sleep in "Hotel El Conquistador".
The rooms and common areas are very attractive and the service is great from all people working in the hotel. The owner is "Dona Luz" who speaks fairly good English. The breakfasts are included in the U$60/night rate. The full-breakfasts include eggs, gallopintos, toast, and best of all is the so very fresh fruit bowl.
The hotel is only one block from "Plaza Inter" (shopping mall) and a short taxi ride to everything else in Managua.
If you make a reservation there, tell them that Alan and Marty recommended the hotel.
Hello! Alan, Marty and Doña Luz.
My name is Ricardo and I will be joining you from April 2 - 9. I will be traveling with my friends Eduardo, Felix Mario who have already been there, and also with my other friend Reinaldo. I cant wait to meet you all if possible and enjoy not only your hospitality and attractive hotel (recommended by Alan and Marty), but also your beautiful country. I hope we can all have a good time and share many of our experiences. See you all in April.
From Puerto Rico with love;
