Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is a real boutique hotel. Lovely spacious rooms with beautiful bedding. Very peaceful and relaxing. The food was top notch. I had salmon with a summery sauce which was delicious. Highly recommended

Have stayed at this hotel multiple times, and it is an absolutely beautiful property with a superb staff and a fantastic restaurant on-site. I cannot say enough good things about it, and I look forward to every return visit.

Room Tip: Rooms 1-13 are my favorites.

I went there with a friend last July. It is a safe and comfy hotel which is nicely decorated. It is located in an residential area. It is not far away from the city center by taxi. They've got a restaurant and an outdoor swimming pool. The rooms are cleanned and big. They've got all the facilities needed plus a great garden where to relax after a long day visiting Managua.

However we would usually spend a lot of time awaiting for breakfast to be served. At the same time, we felt there was a lady at reception who was not very welcoming, even giving us 'funny' faces. It is important not to judge people by how they look like, but how they relate to you with polite manners. On the other hand, the chauffeur and the gentleman at reception were very kind and profesional. That's why I would go back.

We live down near San Juan del Sur and many of the flights out of Managua are so early that an overnight stay is often a necessity... and until we found this hotel... an unpleasant necessity. It's contemporary (as the name indicates), clean, welcoming and nicely priced.
The best part for me? The breakfast. It's exceptional and included and this last time I had their eggs benedict... real eggs benedict .. topped with fresh dill :) And this last time we stayed in a room called Volcan and it even inspired me to photograph it... So I thought it was time to write a review for the hotel. We have stayed here half a dozen times now and will again.
It may be located in the 'burbs' but the big shopping mall Galleria is a few minutes drive and features many restaurants and a great movie theater but the food at Contempo is exceptional.
This hotel is not like most in Nicaragua and kudos to the management team for making it all happen.

Room Tip: The rooms in the 'newer' section are better. Breakfast is outstanding.. don't sleep in.

This hotel was really beautiful! I had seen photos of it online but even so, it had exceeded my expectations when I walked into it in real life. The rooms are all designed according to a theme; we got the "woods" room which was small but very pretty, it almost felt like we were in a luxe log cabin! The service was excellent, and the staff were very polite. If I had to say something negative about the hotel it would be that it could use a few more staff members. We felt like our breakfast waiter was doing everything (he was taking care of the bar as well as the restaurant area which has two levels). Also, we were surprised that there was no gym or fitness centre; I guess it got to the point that we never check beforehand if there is one or not since most hotels we go to have them, but that is our fault for expecting a gym and not checking before booking. The rooms were very clean. The pool area is very pleasant and relaxing. We had a problem with the hot water in our room - this was dealt with very promptly (we finished breakfast and it was already fixed)! If I am ever in Managua again I wouldn't hesitate to book with this hotel again.

This place is a delight. Each room is different, and we want to return and return to stay in as many as possible. In the room, the bedding is comfortable, the jacuzzi tubs are great. The long, narrow pool area is minimalist and elegant and also, surprisingly great for little kids because there's a very shallow end. Everyone who worked in the hotel was attentive to us and very sweet to our 1 year old daughter. But the real standout was the food...especially all the breads which are made in house.

A wonderful small hotel in Managua - very clean, minimalistic design and lovely green patios throughout the property. Staff is super friendly and well trained. And I must tell that the food in the restaurant is simply out of this world! The chef is French and he performs miracles from wonderful local and organic produce and sea food!!! Definitely would not hesistate to recommend anybody!

Room Tip: We stayed in room #1...everything worked just fine.
