I asked my 7 year old daughter what she liked most about our holiday in Nicaragua and she said: 'the lovely bed with the white blankets in the Barrio Hotel'. We only stayed 1 night, the staff was very friendly, the girls at the reception helped me out with our next hotel reservation, they were so kind..Breakfast was delicious, but...

As an American on my first trip to Nicaragua, I wasn't sure what to expect. Barrio was a very pleasant surprise. the rooms are modern, new finishes with a European look to them. The entire hotel was clean. I felt safe the whole time. And breakfast at the restaurant was fantastic. Highly recommend!

This is a small but great hotel. The rooms are clean and basic but have a nice decor. The air conditioning was new and worked like a charm. The mornings and evenings can get loud due to the restaurant cafe below. The beds were comfortable and clean. Rooftop balcony does bring some traffic past the rooms for sunsets but you...

Check in was quick and easy. Rooms were immaculate and the location is perfect. Your about a block from the beach. A block from "bar row" and the must try restaurants. I had a 6 am departure and the hosts were kind enough to supply fresh fruit (more than I can finish) as well as yogurt and granola. Highly recommend...

This is mainly a restaurant (good, but probably the most pricy in town) with a few rooms on the back. Rooms are nicely decorated and have a much needed AC. However, the problem is that the rooms' windows face the restaurant (at least those in the ground floor), so they are literally useless, meaning, no natural light. Staff is not...

GREAT LOCATION - Very easy walk to the beach, plenty of great shopping steps away. Hotel has 8 total rooms, and it was a bit noisy in the evening but overall, very clean and simple. We stayed in room 7 with the small balcony and had two beds with clean sheets, a TV (with some english channels), a safe, wifi,...

I booked a room at The Barrio Cafe Hotel based on the price listed and reviews given on Trip Advisor. And they did not disappoint! This is a wonderful, small hotel in the center of San Juan del Sur. The staff is friendly and easy to work with. The rooms are lovely - clean and restful. The beds are super...

Barrio Cafe Hotel is right in the middle of SJdS so very convenient. It's also a good price point and staff are very friendly. The Barrio Cafe also has great food and drinks. Only downside is the property itself and the rooms are very small. It's fine if you plan to be out-and-about most of the time, but if you...

The hotel is located on a main street in close proximity to bars and restaurants. The hotel's own cafe/restaurant serves AMAZING breakfast, cakes, smoothies and cocktails. They also serve lunch/dinner but we never ate there. The room was really clean and modern with a comfortable bed and good AC. The shower was lovely with good pressure but we couldn't seem...

The Barrio Hotel was all good. We stayed in a double room, and actually stayed in three different rooms because we kept extending our stay. The rooms were very clean, nice beds, good a/c, cable tv, and wifi. The cleaning crew cleaned the room everyday. The location is as central in town as you can get, around the restaurants, the...
