“Amazing Hospitality”
Reviewed January 23, 2009

After reading the reviews I really wanted to stay at La Pryamide. It was absolutely everything all the other reviewers have already said except, there were no bugs. It is shaped like a pryamide, it is spotless, Manfred is very entertaining, loves his adopted country and does absolutely everything he can to make your stay wonderful and safe. We walked the short 10 minutes to the lovely restaurants with out any problem. Manfred drove us by the area so we would know how to do it on our own. We agree with the another review El Garabato has excellent food and the staff is fluent in English. When we decided to go to the old center of Managua Manfred drove us there and made sure we had the cordobas we needed for a taxis. We have traveled a lot and met some very helpful people, Manfred goes to the top of the list. Can't say enough good things about this wonderful place.

We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to begin our trip to San Jaun del Sur with an overnight stay at La Pyrimide. The hotel was very accomodating to our late arrival, yet picked us up on time at the airport. A lovely light supper was prepared for us.
We stayed overnight again on our departure from Nicaragua, with another lovely evening meal awaiting us. The rooms are clean, cheerful and individually decorated. We recommend this hotel to anyone seeking value for their dollar.

I stay with Manfred in his "hotel with charme" every time I am in Managua for work and even the first time it felt like coming back to a place you know, to people who know you.
It´s a funky house with spotless rooms, nicely decorated, with TV and A/C, the best being the room right under the roof of the pyramid itself - with a little private balcony and furnished like a room at home might be...

Manfred (a former development worker who fell in love in Nicaragua and decided to stay) picks you up at the airport at all hours, makes sure you get what you need during your stay and has unlimited stories and anecdotes to tell. The restaurant serves excellent meals - with many of the vegetables grown on their farm outside Managua - either indoors or on their airy terrrace. The newest item is an open air yakuzzi to cool you down on hot days.

Compared to other hotels in Managua, it´s an excellent choice for a really fair price!

  • Liked — the homey feel to it; Manfred; the food; the balcony-room under the roof
  • Disliked — the noise of the aircon

If you have found this hotel, you must have a grrrrreat aura, because like attracts like. Not only does the German management exude a loving Energy, but the facility itself does as well, a tropical Oasis. The entire staff is professional yet treats you like you are "on a bed of cotton." We felt like we were the only guest, beyond our expectation. The meals were tailored to our needs, and all for such a great price....the best value in all of our stays while traveling in Centro America.

In addition, they have another restaurant nearby, that caters to vegetarians and yogis, with a huge yoga room, opening onto an enclosed lucious garden. Perfect for drifting away in your asana!

As we were on our honeymoon, the first hotel we booked was "an expensive one" ... but we didnt get the real feel for Managua by being there, and certainly didnt feel safe leaving the complex, we were technically "stuck". After meeting another couple, they introduced us to La Pyramide and Manfred, the owner. La Pyramide is clean, staff are friendly, food is fantastic, and the rates are very reasonable. It doesnt matter if your single, as a couple, or with your family, they cater to all. Manfred will bend over backwards for you and help you experience Nicaragua as you should, wanting you to see and experience the country he knows and loves. He also put us in touch with Christian Geller of Cocopeli Tours, www.cocopeli-tours.com Both men share a passion about this country which is contagious, you cant help but get drawn into the history, and the beauty. Their open, honest, friendly attitude toward us turned our honeymoon around!

  • Liked — The simplicity, the cleanliness of the rooms, the themes, the staff, the food, Manfred the owner!
  • Disliked — There was absolutely nothing wrong with the accommodation.

This is a very nice, value hotel in the middle of Managua. My flight arrived after midnight, and a shuttle was waiting to take me to the hotel. The cost of the shuttle bumped up the hotel to the price of the airport Best Western, but from the reviews on TripAdvisor, I think this was the better choice.

Clean rooms and linens, TVs, working air conditioners, basic but nice rooms. There's a balcony that looks out over Managua (kind of) that you can sit on for breakfast. A very small outdoor pool is available, too.

Overall, a good, solid experience. It seemed to be safe with a guard in a residential area of Managua, and a good value for the money.

We like off beat and unusual so, after reading the reviews we booked this for our last night in Nica instead of staying near the airport. It fit the bill! The only disappointing thing was the abundance of bugs in the room. I know, I know...it's the tropics, but I've stayed in more bug free places in the tropics. I don't think they were the biting kind, but I just wasn't expecting it. No problems otherwise. Great A/C and even some English cable TV for us gringos. Manfred as promised patiently waited for our late flight, and amused us with his great history. He is a character and worthy of the visit to the hotel alone. We wanted to experience one more night out so we walked from the hotel to El Garabato (excellent) restaurant. Even though it's only a 15 minute walk, it was a little confusing at night, in the rain, in an unfamiliar neighboorhood with many security gates. Perhaps in daylight and a lessed rushed (up early for a flight out) experience we would have had a better one night stay.
