“Theft”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel three times over three years so this is not a hasty review. On my last visit my UK mobile phone was stolen from a locked hotel room. I reported this to the security guard who was the only person on duty at 5pm on a Saturday. He denied understanding my Spanish until I said that I was calling in the police. Please note that I have an 'A' level equivalent qualification in Spanish speaking and listening and have been to Latin America 14 times. I then spoke to the receptionist at her home. She denied understanding my English until I said that I was calling in the police. The following morning the hotel owner got involved and things temporarily improved as he arranged for me to go to the police and get the official document for an insurance claim. He promised to phone me back on my Nicaraguan mobile to tell me what was happening but failed to do so. Note that there are three hotels in neighbouring Reparto San Juan with exactly the same facilities minus the swimming pool for just over half the price of this hotel.

I stayed in one of the studios with kitchenette for 2 weeks in February on my first trip to Managua. The room was large, clean with a nice bathroom and excellent a.c. The bed was very comfortable, too. The garden sitting areas are what really give El Almendro that wow factor. It is an oasis in a busy city.
The excellent staff is very friendly and anxious to please. Usually, there was someone who spoke English, but even those that didn't, tried to communicate to ensure that I was enjoying my stay. The breakfasts were hearty: eggs, toast, beans and rice, cereal, plenty of fresh fruit, fruit juices, yogurt, and more, served by the small swimming pool.
The location is superb: 3 blocks from MetroCentro which has a very nice supermarket and adjacent to the University of Central America.

I've stayed at The Almendro twice in both my visits to Nicaragua and I love it. Its safe, clean, comfortable with an amazing staff. You also get a very nice complimentary breakfast which includes eggs, gallo pinto (rice and beans typical of Nicaragua) fruits among some other things. The rooms are very nice with A/C. It almost feels like you're in someone's home as a guest instead of a hotel. It is very well located in the center of Managua, walking distance to metro centro. It also has a very nice little pool to relax and refresh yourself if its too hot. I will keep staying there everythime i come back to Nicaragua.

Decided to stay in Managua our last night before heading to the states and decided on Hotel Almendro based on price and reviews from this site! Awesome! Definitely a hidden gem. It's safe and secure. Rooms are very modern and comfortable. Nice social areas such as the pool. Close to Metrocentro and Carretera Massaya which is where most of the activity is at. Staff is wonderful! Will definitely stay at El Almendro next time I am in Managua.

Very good location - near to UCA bus station and Metrocentro shopping center. I have visited 5 or 6 times, with friends, family and as a couple and the long-term staff are always welcoming and accommodating (early check in no problem etc.). Can arrange taxis for nights out. Free wifi. Smallish swimming pool and free buffet breakfast, although no other food available during the day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near to the pool.

Great little hotel. Very safe and secure. The streets surrounding the hotel are nice and its within walking distance of the mall. From the outside it looks like a prison. Walled up with barbed wire on top. But once you get in its beautiful. The pool is really cute. A little small but the area around the pool is really nice. The rooms are great. Clean. The staff was really helpful. The breakfast was ok. The only downside for my husband and I was our room was right next to the breakfast area which starts at 7am. So it was a little noisy early in the morning. Great stay though. Would definitely stay there again. Oh and there's no kitchen or restaurant in the hotel. So that sucks when youre hungry late at night.

very good location in the center of the city (you need a car anyway to go around the country no matter where you are staying as you should not (and cannot because of the way the city is built) walk around.
the staff is very kind and helpful
pools to jump in are very welcome at the end of the day
the kitchen available in some appartment is very practical for long stays
The whole place, rooms and bathrooms are very clean
Very good value for money !
