When looking for a business hotel in Managua, there are still not too many options. But the Barcelo Managua is one of the few properties that should meet all of your basic business hotel needs.
The Barceló is not located within walking distance of anything so if you want to eat, shop or go out for the night (other than the casino across the parking lot), you will need to take a taxi. However most of the places are just a few minutes away by taxi.
We upgraded to the suite after taking a brief look at the standard room. While the basic room was clean and completely serviceable, the moderate increase in the price for a suite made the larger room, separate sitting area, spacious bathroom and small kitchen area worth it.
The hotel carries many amenities that could be useful and/or relaxing - a small but modern gym, a large pool with a very nice view of the city and the lake beyond, car rental, plethora of meeting space, and an office center.
We ate at the onsite Japanese restaurant and were treated to some delicious sushi. The breakfast buffet was not interesting although they did have the standard continental breakfast items along with a few nicaraguan items (i.e. gallo pinto, etc.).
Across the parking lot from the front entrance is a casino. While the signage has bright lights, the casino itself felt unobtrusive. I went there at night and it was fairly empty with just a few basic table games and some slot machines.
The service from various staff members was prompt and friendly - pretty much what you would expect from this level of business hotel. It would be hard to go wrong here.
