“Nice stay everything needed”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

I enjoyed the stay with everything you ask for you hotel. Nice beds, hot water, pool, flat screen TV, etc. The hotel was centrally located and small chain but with everything needed in our travels. The staff was very kind to us.

I returned to Nicaragua and went straight to the hotel that stole my heart. However, I came to discover that the owners who built and beautifully managed this hotel sold their hotel to new owners. Guess that explains why I never saw them and when I asked for them, no one knew who I was talking about.

Needless to say, this place isn't the same without them. I cut my expected two-week stay here short, to only 2 days and went to another hotel/B&B. The prior owners had so much love and care for their property, they were proud to host their guests. This time around, I did not get that feeling. So sad.

I just read a few reviews for this hotel and most seem quite good. The question is if they are talking about the same property in Managua which turned out to be my worst possible stay anywhere that I have visited before. Here´s why and the staff cannot refute any of my complaints:
1. For two days there was no running water, period. I was told it was a temporary thing but 48 hours is a long time in anyones watch.
2. The waste basket in the bathroom had not been cleaned upon my arrival.
3. We asked for a cab and the condition of the car was so bad, it would take me a lot of time to detail.
4. I do not know why they say that breakfast is included because the amount of food is ideal for a two year old kid, maybe.
5. The receptionist did not know how to use a credit card.
6. At one point I had to beg for a bucket of water so that I could flush the toilette. I got the bucket alright but without water so I ended up collecting water from the swimming pool myself.
I feel like the owners suddenly decided to abandon their business and left it to the cleaning staff who I believe are not to blame. Please do yurselves a favor and avoid this property.

I stayed at Hotel El Gran marquez with a friend while exploring Managua, and had a great experience there. The hotel was clean and so cute because it has a garden and pool area, free access to internet, knowledged staff, and tasty complimentary breakfast! It was important for me to be in a safe area (one of my main concerns) and close to restaurants and shopping too, and this hotel was perfect for that! It gave me a homey feel because of the hotel set up, the staff and the access to everything. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Nicaragua, and I am a really picky person, and just saying the honest truth! You wont be disappointed and will have a peace of mind!

This small hotel is clean, friendly and safe. In an upper-scale residential neighbourhood, it has a small garden with birds and flowers, and is a close walk to good restaurants and a shopping mall. The restaurant is basic, the cleaning service could use a little "greening", and the staff are helpful and warm.

I recently traveled to Nicaragua for a medical mission trip. I landed at the Nicaragua airport at midnight alone. Knowing very little spanish, I spoke with several taxi drivers trying to find the cleanest, safest, most affordable hotel in downtown Managua. Most stated that the Hotel Gran Marquez was the place for me. Upon arriving to the hotel I was greeted by one of the owners, Cesar. He spent an hour or so talking with me in both english and spanish, as he is bilingual. Immediately I had a sense that he was looking out for my safety and well being. The hotel proved to be very safe as it was monitored by a security guard who also brought me cold beer on a silver tray. The room was very clean and tasteful. The next day I was greeted by Patricia, the other owner. She was delightful and encouraged my exploration of spanish with a great sense of humor. Breakfast was delicious and my time by the pool (pascina) was very relaxing. Overall, I felt like I was taken in by a family and I'm very greatful for the experience. If I was to return to Nicaragua, I would make it a point to visit with them again in Managua.
