Hotel Los Cisneros
Ranked #46 of 50 Hotels in Managua
Reviewed 31 January 2010

It was nice to find cheerfully colourful apartments in a lovely garden with lots of plants and mango trees. There are chairs and rocking-chairs outside the rooms, so it is pleasant to sit out there in front of your apartment in the evenings.
A free locked parking in the yard of the next door house was available.
I do not know what breakfasts other guests are talking about. The only breakfast that we got as included In the room price consisted of tea, coffee and a plate of fruit. Probably if you pay extra you can get more.
Unfortunately the downsides were also considerable, and we would avoid staying there again. The room (apartment) and particularly the kitchen and the bathroom were very dirty. There was even some red substance looking very much like blood on the bathroom doorpost. (It was not paint as it was coming off with water when we were cleaning ourselves.)
There was a fridge (with a layer of dust on it) in the apartment, but it was not working. You are required to pay extra for it to be switched on.
The old electricity wires in the bedroom next to the bed made us a bit wary.
There were horizontal glass blinds in the windows and vertical plastic blinds at the windows inside the room. The wind during the night was blowing in and moving the plastic blinds with noise that made it difficult to sleep. The mechanism of the glass blinds shutter was broken so it was not possible to shut the windows and stop that noise.
Water in the toilet was running all night and we did not manage to stop it, too.
They have a computer with internet they allowed us to use, but Internet was not working (most probably not their fault).
The district itself is not pleasant. The bus station is close, but otherwise you do not feel much safe walking around there. We did, but would not recommend.
If driving yourself, the place is a bit difficult to find. Therefore we asked the hotel receptionist to mark the location of the hotel in the map and she did it wrongly that made driving back that night even more confusing.
If you can afford more expensive place in a better district, do so. If you need to stay close to the bus station and can not pay more, then this option is bearable and probably better than the others in the neighbourhood.

Stayed 2 nights at Hotel Los Cisneros. Everything was perfect there. The flight into Managua was delayed and did not arrive until 2 am......our transport was waiting right out front. Rooms are clean, food is delicious, and management is very helpful. No complaints whatsoever.

Hotel Los Cisneros is absolutely wonderful. The hotel is beautiful and the service is amazing. We were given a ton of information as to what places we might enjoy visiting, were we might like to eat, and were recomended to a driver who took excelent care of us. The breakfasts we had there each morning were delicious - some of the best food we had in all of Nicaragua. Fresh fruit, omlets, pancakes, and gallo pinto - all delicious. We will for sure stay at Hotel Los Cisneros on our next trip to Nicaragua.

We enjoyed the overall atmosphere here. Hotel in a typical neighborhood. Short walk to the Presidents residence and Tica bus station. Funky ,small restaurant two doors down open at night. Seriously fantastic food and family run. Fried chicken and typical Nica food around corner and up the street. Walk another mile or so to a new modern shopping center and American style grocery store La Colonial

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Los Cisneros during our first night in Nicaragua. We arrived at 12am, 2 hrs past our expected arrival due to getting lost for 2 hrs in Managua! Thankfully the night staff person was nice enough to let us in and show us to our room. We stayed in a non-air conditioned room with fan, tv, and two double beds for $35/night. The room and hotel grounds were very clean and very well kept. There is even a locked gated area were we parked our rental car. The staff was very nice and considerate and made our quick stay a pleasant one. There is a small restaurant connected to the hotel which we had breakfast which was delicious and definitely affordable. Overall this is a very good option for a hotel in Managua and is kind to the budget as well.

Upsides: Very clean, affordable, restaurant near hotel, safe

Downsides: Hard to find if driving yourself for the first time, area surrounding the hotel is a little rough at night and is not conducive to walking around by yourself

There is nothing to complain. The value you get for the price is more than good.
