“Fab place whatever your budget”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We loved this place and wish we had managed more nights there. We spent 2 nights in one of the 'suites' - a really big ensuite room with 2 big double beds and loads of room for the 2 travel cots we had for our young children, as well as our endless amounts of luggage.

It is a hotel, however is so laid back it has bit of a 'hostel' feel to it ... And I Mean that in a good way as it is friendly and informal. There is a small pool to cool off in which we spent a lot of time in, it's perfect for children.

The food was superb and very good value, and the girls in the kitchen were very flexible at cooking what we wanted for our children (one of whom is a baby requiring purées which they did no problem for us). The fresh fruit juices were delicious.

Manfred, the owner, is by far the best host of a hotel we have had - anywhere in the world. He is German but speaks almost perfect English. He helped with dinner and other accommodation bookings, dropped us off at the local markets or playgrounds and was generally just super duper. All his staff seemed happy and like a family to each other.

Managua is much nicer than we expected - very green and lush, great restaurants - including several within easy and safe walking distance from the hotel. So ignore the guide books and have more than a 1-2 night stopover if you can!

Room Tip: Can't vouch for the other rooms but the 'suites' were very big and good value.

We stayed at La Pyramid for three nights, then went to Corn Islands and back to La Pyramid for two additional nights. This place is great, clean, comfortable, good AC, good food and excellent service from the staff. Location is great, neighborhood is safe and there is good security. They pick you up and drop you at the airport, bus station etc....Manfred, the owner is a hands on type of guy. He will make sure you have anything you need during your stay. The Hilton is right around the corner but don't waste your money....everything you need is right here. We are very happy with our stay and will stay here in the future.

Room Tip: It's all good.

From the moment we booked host was most accomodating. By the way the barking dog is gone, to Chile, so I am told, but doesn't matter, no dog. Most important this is an owner hands on hotel. Manfred is family, there for you. You can depend on him. He arranged and took us to get the rent car, helped with getting a cell phone, anything he can do for you he will. It is a small pousada type hotel. As important the staff are most attentive and cordial. You will not be disappointed.

Manfred was very friendly and helpful. Clean hotel, priced right and it's walking distance to some good restraunts. Next visit I would definitely go back. The Wifi network is strong as well. Chill clients seem to stay there which is always nice.

Our stay in La Pyramide was wonderful. We stayed in the magnificent Tutankahmun room inside the pyramid. We were really wow'd by the room. It was huge and really nicely decorated. The shower was also huge. The food was excellent and we had dinner here twice- delicious. Breakfast was included and we really enjoyed it.
Manfred the owner is absolutley wonderful. He gave us great advice and dropped us off at various locations. He was great to chat to about Nicaragua and we felt really at home in La Pyramide.

Landing in Managua during the middle of the night I needed a place to stay. Since it was my first time to the country that was naturally a little scary. When I arrived at the airport the cab driver the hotel owner appointed for me was waiting with a big sign on my name on it; this was a welcomed relief after flying for so long.

After a short drive to the hotel with a friendly cab driver I met the night watchmen who escorted me to my room. The room was simple, clean and comfortable. Compared to other airport hotels the stay here is also very affordable - the taxi to the hotel was a deal as well.

The next day I woke up to and had an excellent breakfast at the hotel restaurant, which is to the side on a comfortable patio deck. The food was wonderful, and included with the room. Manfred the owner, whom I met after, was outgoing and warm. After speaking with him he gave me a free Lonely Planet book about Nicaragua, which was nice of him; reading it while traveling greatly added to my experience in this country.
