“safe and clean place for women travelers!!!”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

we arrived late at this hotel refer to us by a taxi driver and were greeted by the owner pet who offered us a room with hot shower A/C and fast wifi!!! we heard that Honduras is a dangerous place but we felt very safe.
the next day we missed the morning ferry to utila and pet gave us a beutiful tour around the city and had brunch with us while we waited for the next ferry !!
what i liked about this hotel is the personalised costumer service that was rendered !! i highly recommend this hotel to any solo women traveleres looking for a safe,clean and cheap place to stay!!!!
We will be coming back from the bay islands and we´ll be staying here again.....

Hotel El Estadio is located in close proximity to the ferry terminal, bus terminals, good restaurants and a large shopping mall. Getting to these places is made super easy, as Peter, the owner of this joint is more than happy to drive you anywhere, anytime for the same price as a local cab. Peter recommended restaurants to eat at, drove us and picked us up from there, picked us up from the ferry terminal, drove us to ATMs and the mall to get supplies, and has heaps of helpful advice about how to book in for trips and buses etc.

The room we had had both a fan and AC, private bathroom which was clean, and cable tv. The value for money on this room was second to none. There is the option of breakfast in the morning, including a Caribbean Omelette and steaming hot coffee.

Definitely worth a night or 2 here, and the perfect launching pad before heading off to the Bay Islands.

Room Tip: Private rooms are inexpensive and have extras such as AC and tv.

We stayed 3 days in la Ceiba, it was longer than expected but we felt good in this hotel. Rooms and showers are much cleaner than in other hotel/hostel i stayed in during my journey in central America.
Another good point is the internet connexion, it was faster than what i expected. The hotel location is good enough, It's not far from the center and really close to a 24/7 tienda.
Nothing to say about the security except you really feel safe inside the building.
Special thanks to Peter and his couzin, these guys are really helpful.

If you have one night to kill in La Ceiba, kill it at Estadio. If you have a little extra time on your hands, set up Estadio as your main base!
The place is safe, clean and centrally located, so you can give your worries about the practical necessities a well deserved rest. The formalities are one thing though, the real reason to pay this place a visit is almost certainly the welcoming, attentive and just flat out cool staff that runs the place. The owner, Pete, has been living in Boston for a couple of years and is more than capable of helping you with basically everything, at least everything we needed. As a huge bonus he also has a whole lot of know how about what is actually going on in the city and country as a whole.

so in short, go there and do yourself the favor of staying there for more than just the mandatory night.

The hostel owner has some kind of scam set up with the taxi drivers. He (the owner) told us that we needed to leave one hour and 15 mins early for the ferry to Utila and that it was very far and we needed to pay the driver 200 L ($10). The driver repeated the same to us. It's a five minute drive. After dropping us at the ferry, the same driver had time to leave and come back FOUR TIMES bringing other people from our hostel. SCAM! Also, there was NO RUNNING WATER but this could have been the city's fault - I'm not sure. Either way, it was miserable not being able to shower or even wash our hands. Also, just FYI, diving in Utila really isn't very good. I know it's super cheap (except for the ferry! $27 each way!!!) but it's really not worth it. The reefs are half dead and there's barely any sealife to see even on the North side. I really don't think the trip is worth it.

hotelestadio, Owner at Hotel El Estadio, responded to this review, 13 April 2014
PLENTY OF RUNNIG WATER & NO SCAMS WITH TAXI DRIVERS.. we have our own water well plus the city's water supply but on this date the city had shut off their main supply due to some major work & changes they were doing so because we had a full house we asked everybody to be consider it on the amount water they were using...As far as the taxi business our business is lodging but we go out of our way to accommodate our guest so they can be safe, get to the ferry station on time and buy their tickets.
Now as far as the comment about the reefs in Utila i feel this is mis-placed & mis -appropriated but im not the blame for that, also we're located in the city of La Ceiba not the island of Utila....

I arrived in Honduras at the end of November and leaving tomorrow, for business purposes. I needed a budget hotel that is centrally located, safe and -important- has good Internet. A friend of mine recommended hotel El Estadio.

The hotel is located close to the center of La Ceiba and also in walking distance to La Zona Viva (bars!).
It is very safe; it has a metal gate where you can get a key for and at night they place another lock on it. You have to ring the bell and this prevents that 'unsafe' persons to enter. They also have security cameras all around. I think it is more safe than many luxury hotels where anyone can basically walk in and out.

The room is nice and complete. It has: a/c, 2 fans, fridge, TV, table, chair, closet, bathroom with hot shower. They have wireless Internet and the connection is excellent. They have hammocks on the balcony. The hotel is kept clean. On the ground floor there is an area with tables and a bar where you can hang around. They do not have a kitchen but can provide meals if you want to. They do sell beer!

The staff is friendly and helpful. They were forgiving when I came back in the middle of the night, slightly drunk... They speak English. Peter, the owner, goes all the way to help people out with anything you want e.g. tomorrow I have to catch a bus at 5:15am and Peter will bring me to the bus station, so I don't have to worry about a taxi in the middle of the night.

After living here for almost 3 months the people of the hotel became friends :-)

I can recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a decent place for a very fair price!

Room Tip: They have singe rooms, double rooms, with balcony and dormitories (separate man/woman) as well.
