“Great hotel, a bit far but worth it”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

This is a great hotel. It looks as if it was a huge house in an upscale neighborhood that was turned into a hotel. Overall, the place looks high quality and it is. The rooms are nice and big and well decorated. The lobby is modern, and the food is great. They even pick you up fro the airport for free and offer a hotel taxi service to take you anywhere you want. Pleasantly surprised by this place. The only negative: wifi internet service did not work well in my room (the signal was poor).

The staff are amazing! Very helpful and polite. Room was clean and very 'contempo'. Was only there one night while in transit to LCI, but will definitely stay again and have mentioned it to others as a hotel they should visit.

We spent 3 nights there. The staff was very attentive and helpful. It's a beautiful property. Check-in and out went smoothly. My sister missed her flight. The hotel sent a shuttle to pick her up at the airport and were very helpful in booking her for an extra night. The shuttle driver was also helpful in making stops along the way to the ATM and the mall.

We don't speak Spanish so it was a bit of a problem for us. Most of the staff have no English. Including the waiters and waitresses at the restaurant so communication was a problem for us.

The hotel is not centrally located. You will need a car if you stay there. There was a Hertz office in the lobby.

It looked liked rooms 1 - 14 have been recently renovated. Those rooms are very nice. The others room were not renovated. My sister got one of the unrenovated rooms when she stayed an extra night. She described it as "disgusting". She said the water did not get hot and the room looked dated. So be sure to book one of the renovated rooms.

I gave the hotel 4 stars instead of 5 because of the isolated location and the lack of English speakers. This won't be a problem if you speak Spanish and plan to rent a car. We were told that the hotel was 10 minutes from downtown by car.

Room Tip: Room 1 - 14 look to be recently renovated. Room 13 was very roomy and at the end of a walkway so ve...

My wife and I spent 5 nights at the Hotel Contempo in Managua, Nicaragua and had a wonderful time. The service was outstanding, our free breakfasts were cooked and delivered to order and everyone we came into contact with treated us like royalty. We took 4 day trips to different locations in Nicaragua and were very impressed. We visited Managua, Masaya, Granada and Leon. We were personally driven and guided by one of the hotel's employee's, Matveich Chavaria. He did an outstanding job making sure we saw all the main sights in each location we visited for a price that was comparable to a tour company's price where we would not have individual attention. Our visit ended with a free shuttle to the new Managua Airport. My only suggestion for the Hotel Contempo would be to have an exercise room on site.

We usually stay in the center of the city at Seminole or Intercontinental but this cool little place really impressed us! We liked the funky secret entrance that brings you into an enclave surrounded by big bucks houses and chock full of diplomats. Nice features in each room - unique and surprising. We were in 15 and liked the private back patio but the feng shui was a little off and I kept banging onto the bed corner. Nice restaurant but our breakfast service was super slow and my food was a little cool. Delicious anyway, and the view out of the glass walls kept me busy so I really didn't mind.
If you've got a rental car I'd definitely check it out!

Stayed here 3 days, Corn Island 2 days and then returned for 2 more days. Coming back for the last 2 days of our trip was like coming home. Rooms are spacious with crisp white bedding and nicely decorated. Everyone in this hotel is excellent, from registration, shuttle drivers, housekeeping, restaurant, and bar. You are treated like family and staff call you by name. We don't usually eat at restaurants in hotels, but this one was the exception. Beautiful presentation, the steaks were cooked to perfection, the French Onion Soup was delicious, the rolls are freshly baked. Would definitely return and recommend to friends and family. You will not be disappointed.

This is a real boutique hotel. Lovely spacious rooms with beautiful bedding. Very peaceful and relaxing. The food was top notch. I had salmon with a summery sauce which was delicious. Highly recommended
