Excellent staff, perfect service and lovely place!!! I was looking for a great hotel because we have to go often in Managua and El Contempo is really the best!!
This place is quiet, peaceful and really beautiful!!! Rooms are very comfortable and clean!
The French restaurant Azul became one of my favorite place in Managua. You have to try the meat!!!!
Everything was perfect and I want to to thank you especially Marlon who is the best concierge I never seen!!!
See you soon!

When you stay somewhere your first impression is developed when you are greeted by the staff. We were met at the airport late at night by the hotel driver. He was very friendly and contacted the hotel that we were on our way. The restaurant was going to close so we were offered dinner which we order from the car. At our arrival we were greeted by a very friendly gentleman at the front desk and taken to our room immediately and dinner arrived within minutes. The next morning we explored the hotel, the grounds were beautiful! We had breakfast and the waiter and waitress were very friendly. The food was amazing. We hired the hotel driver for the day and we had a wonderful day driving around Managua. We went to other areas of Nicaragua but before leaving we returned to Contempo. The staff remember our names and the smiles and friendliness was the best of any where in Managua. Dinner at Azule was some of the best food we experienced on our trip. Just make sure and save room for dessert! We are all ready planning a trip back in the spring. Hotel Contempo will be our first and last stop. The beds are so comfortable I felt I was at home. The room was clean and very comfortable. Thank you Daniel (the singing concierge), Stephano, Linda, Juan, Fransico, and all the others that made our visit outstanding!!

We had the pleasure to stay, probably for the tenth time, at our favourite hotel in Managua with what we feel is the best restaurant in Nicaragua. Everything was wonderful as always, but this time they went above and beyond their usual level of excellent service. A shuttle had been booked to go to the airport for an early morning flight. The car was five minutes late and my husband, who has turned in to a somewhat nervous traveller, was doing back flips. With a minimum amount of fuss another car and driver was produced and we were whisked to the airport, encountering the other car one minute from the hotel. Thank you so much hotel and staff.

Overall a good stay. Being led straight to the room from the taxi was a nice touch. Complimentary juice in the afternoon was also appreciated. Breakfast was tasty. Splurged on the jacuzzi room, but the jets quit after a few minutes, and it's not too convenient to reach the front desk when you're already in the tub. Wifi in the room was a bit spotty and having to relogin with username and password every time to access it quickly became annoying. Woke up early due to construction on a neighboring room. Avoid the car service offered for extortionate rates. Hope this is helpful.

I have been traveling to Nicaragua since 2005, several times a year. During those trips I have stayed at all of the well known hotels. I was delighted that the Contempo was recommended to me. In the future it will be the only place that I will stay. My family had two rooms that were large and very comfortable. The staff goes out of their way to meet all of the guest's needs or wants.
The Contempo is the place to stay in Managua. Our stay was five very enjoyable nights.

Some friends booked a couple of nights here for us as a gift at the end of a month backpacking and it felt like pure luxury. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, we felt like royalty as soon as we walked through the door. The rooms are lovely, quiet and have ac. The beds are comfy. Each room has good bathroom facilities with toiletries. The rooms don't have any tea/coffee making facilities or fridge/mini bar which I though was unusual for a hotel of that standard. The restaurant has excellent food and the breakfast menu is good for cooked breakfasts. It is located about 11km from the city centre so expect to get a taxi or bus everywhere if you don't have a car but it is only a 20 minute drive from the airport (with no traffic).

Room Tip: We had the basic contempo room - 2 double beds with a shower facility.
