Nice, clean, good food, great location. It's much better that the pics it shows here. But check everything in the room, I had problems with the HOT water.

basic simple Nica hotel. Room was ok, clean and simple. The little courtyard by our room was filthy, cigar butts, clumps of hairballs, gross. Did have hot water. No ammenities at all. Restaurant attached was decent. Breakfast was just Ok, but included in the rate of $50 per nite. Don't stay in thi town if you are particular.

One block away from central park, this charming hotel combines surpreme location and unspoiled tranquility with a surprisingly good value. Some
secound level rooms offer a amazing view down to the beautyful courtyard.
All the staff is polite and dedicated, I just walked in and was granted a small discount on request !
Recommended for a quiet stay within the city !

Room Tip: Rooms on the secound level overlooking end of courtyard

It took time to communicate with the hotel what our needs were and the week we were about to leave we were told there was nothing available after receiving a confirmation. Rather than stay the full time, our stay was cut back by one night. The front desk clerk when we arrived was very nice. Cannot say the same about the day staff. It would help immensely if you spoke spanish. The room was clean. Although Esteli is rather comfortable temperature wise compared to Managua, we opted for a room with a/c. We were basically in town to visit my nephew who was living their and doing missionary work. The room included breakfast daily - which always had gallo pinto. Make sure you obtain your ticket from the front desk before you head into the restaurant. My husband ate at the restaurant one evening. He said it was good. Not much else to say. If you get a chance while in Esteli, you should definitely visit La Casita. Cute little natural food restaurant offering more snacks than meals.

We wre very well received and looked after. The rooms are simple, but very nice. Upon checking in, make shure that everything works, i.e. Hot water, electric lights. Breakfast is superb. Dinner: stick to Nicaraguan food. The waiting staff is very helpful, also in the Bar.

Los Arcos is a decent place to stay if you're in Esteli. It is definitely not world-class accomodations but is comfortable and more than adequate for a night. On the positive side, it is convenient to Parque Central, adequate restaurant, secure (locked) parking, free internet access. The outside rooms can be spacious but also noisy, the inside rooms a bit dark. Rooms are air conditioned, though this is not necessary most of the time. Our room had several broken lights but these were replaced very quickly. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly, but hardly anyone speaks English; if you don't speak at least a little Spanish, be sure to have a phrase book with you.

The bed was comfortable and there was hot water, although with minimal water pressure. Food in the restaurant was OK with a good selection of mostly local dishes; service was a bit slow, though friendly.

This hotel is undoubtally the best in Esteli and No. Nicaragua. It sits just one block back from the main square and well off the main highway. Its lovely hacienda style which is immaculately kept clean is quite charming. I think we had the two best rooms in the hotel, room 219 and 220, both had balconies facing a side street. The rest of the rooms opened on the the interior hallway. There was a roof terrace, stairway next to room 219 that would work well with other accomodations if wanting to sit outside.

The front desk staff was quite helpful. There is secure parking across the street, front desk staff opens it for you when you let them know your arrival/departure. The breakfast was great and included. The bar/restaurant staff was incredible, very friendly and helpful, we loved our visit tremendously. Just a note to early morning coffee drinkers, though breakfast isn't served until 7am you can go into the restaurant around 6am and get coffee, no cream just sugar so if you like cream bring your own...just take a coffee cup off one of the tables and take back to room.

Great hotel, great service. Highly recommended.
