Reviewed November 28, 2009

Wow. I don't know where to start! I was very impressed with this place! There is NOTHING like it in Managua and in the country of Nicaragua, that's for sure! Daniel in reception was amazing with helping me out with details for surprising my husband for a birthday night-away. All of the staff was extremely nice and the over all first impression was excellent! The rooms were spotless and we were treated like gold! The rooms are super funky and have a great feel to them. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who wants a romantic night away or for business.

Reviewed September 24, 2009

This hotel opened just a few months ago and I read about it in a NYTimes travel review and then went to their website www.hotelcontempo.com to reserve a room. The hotel looks/feels exactly like it does on the website...everything is sleek, clean, modern and calm/soothing. Lots of natural light, fountains and great landscaping. This is a boutique, local hotel...so much more unique and comfortable than the Hilton or Incontinental. The staff is very well trained...they all remember your name, remember what you had for dinner last night and ask if you you want to try something completely different or have the same. The director of the hotel, Bernardo, originally of Cuban descent, speaks english with a British accent and feels like your great-uncle you look forward to seeing at every family event. The food/menu is sooooo yummy. There are several really great and affordable options on the menu..for the appetizers, I recommend the beef carpaccio or salmon with cream cheese and scallion rolls. For the main courses, the salmon with lenguado [another fish] or the corvina [another fish] are really good. For breakfast, the nicaraguense [scrambled eggs with cheese tomatos and onions, rice and beans, and tortillas is delicious, healthy and filling.
The only downside is that it is 15minutes outside of the city [which could be good if you don't want to be in downtown Managua...but if you have meetings downtown and need to be there during rush hour, you need to allocate/plan for extra time]

I have stayed here twice, and each time I wish that I could recreate the experience everywhere I travel [and I travel a lot!] Enjoy!!!
