My wife and I were traveling to Nicaragua with a place to stay outside of Managua, but our luggage didn't make our flight. We had to find a new hotel close to the airport. Our taxi driver told us about Hotel Don Quijote in la zona Bello Horizonte. They have modest rooms that were very clean with the following: air conditioned rooms, refrigerators, hot water, flat screen tvs, wifi and a hotel computer. The service was great and a night rate is between $46-60. It's about a ten minute driver from MGA and the area is very safe. They recommended El assado El Toro for lunch and that was like Fogo de Chao sans salad bar and a more rustic look. There is a security guard and night attendant Carlos, Emiliio and la Señora are very nice and wonderful people. Even after the attendant misquoted us with a lower price for the room, La Señora said it was the wrong price but since he had already given us the quote they had to honor it. These are very great people and they know the safe parts of Managua to take you to. They even have airport shuttle service for free, but you have to pay for them to take ou back. It was a great find for the price.
