Hotel Colonial

We are planning a trip to Managua in early April. Our first trip. Have read many good things about Hotel Colonial, but I can't seem to figure out where it is or how to tget there. I want to stay near Managua so if it is in Granada it may be too far. Thanks

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.

I've been to Nicaragua several times and usually stay at the Best Western Las Mercedes while in Managua, which is very close to the airport. Very nice accomodations and reasonable rates. It's a cab ride to City Center.
