“Spacious, well priced & well worn grandeur - rooms w/ a view!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Location, location, location. This spacious hotel has incredible views of Matagalpa. We love sitting on the second or third floor, outdoor surround-balcany, sipping evening drinks and watching the parrots gather noisily for the night in the canopies surrounding the hotel. Lorie and I've spent about 8 or 9 nights here on two visits - one in 2012 and one in 2010. Everything considered, its a great value - the rooms and food. That said, the menu becomes limited by the third day - so go explore downtown,there are some great hidden treasure.

The outdoor gardens are beautiful and seem very well cared for (Lorie and I have worked as big-time-gardeners hahahahaha). The building is grandly built and designed. Little maintenance details are overlooked here and there but, nothing that put us out. We felt secure enough to sleep with the second and third story windows open to the night air and slept very comfortably each night. The showers work well, the toilets flush, TVS spew the usual nonsense, rooms are incredibly spacious. We've pretty much run through the entire menu and although its very average fare - its onsite, its priced right, the dining area is clean and spacious, service always has 100% effort and everybody is friendly. We walk into town (downhill) and always take a (cheap) cooperativa taxi back - works out very well for us. Location, value and semi-grand-design make this place a good choice for us.

Room Tip: Sleep on second or third floor and get a room that's on the west side facing the City. Its has s...

The hotel is considered "best in town". Location a little outside town and nice and quiet during day and night.
The building has grandeur and garden space around it, regretfully its condition has known better days.
The rooms are very large but with minimum furniture, they have a small fridge.
Only a few rooms have air conditioning, the others just a fan.
For those not speaking Spanish, there are only three persons with capability for English (during our stay).

Room Tip: Try to get one of the few rooms with air conditioning, They sell out first, but are an asset for sle...

The Hotel is great. The rooms are very spacious and clean and every room has a balcony. Also when the hotel is on a mountain, the town center is not far away (5-10 min by foot). The restaurant is nothing special. the only public computer is very slow and you just have Wifi at the ground floor.

The hotel is without a doubt the finest in Matagalpa.....it is located on a hill overlooking the city and the sunsets from the balcony are wonderful. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are large and clean. Service is excellent. The food is decent but not greaat.....and the bar prices are way overpriced. But all things considered, this is definitely the most romantic couples place in Matagalpa. And the rooms are moderately priced.....

Room Tip: Ask for one with a private balcony with a westward view.....

A very lovely old hotel but a little tired. Reasonably priced and very spacious rooms. Restaurant service was there but some what slow. The grounds were well manicured and pleasing. Signs indicating directions to locate hotel would be very helpful.

Room Tip: The air conditioned rooms are at the top of the stairs and have the best views.

We travelled around Nicaragua and found this to be one of the nicest places we stayed both for the beautiful rooms, hotel and grounds and the overall value and very good food and service. The view from the hotel over the city of Matagalpa is very good.

The hotel itself is nice. Yes, getting a little tired, but it's clean and has all the facilities you'd want. My only complaint about the hotel itself is the wifi. It really only works in the lobby. It would be nice to get a signal in the rooms. The only drawback of this place it its location. It kind of walkable going into town as it's downhill, but forget about the walk back and I wouldn't recommend the walk in either direction after dark. Cabs are cheap, so this may not be a big deal but it just makes those spontaneous strolls around town less likely.
