We enjoyed our stay at this hotel a lot. Everyone was very nice and helpful. It was a little further from the city center than we had been expecting, but it was an enjoyable stay. The food at the restaurant was good and our room was very nice.

I live in Southern Pacific coast Nicaragua. My husband had a surfing accident requiring an arduous drive to Hospital Metropolitan in Managua and an overnight stay. After he was checked in I called Contempo to see if they had a room for me. Upon arriving, I was given a much appreciated glass of white wine. Even though the restaurant was officially closed and the staff cleaning up, they cajoled a delicious chicken Caesar salad from the off duty chef. Staff goes out of their way to make you comfortable, restaurant is excellent and rooms soothing and quiet

This hotel has amazing staff. They went above and beyond for us, hands down the best hotel service we've ever received. They also had very good food and good amenities. We realized this was more a business hotel as it was not really an activity hotel and we were there for our honeymoon, hoping for some nightly entertainment. However we still enjoyed it and give it a 5/5 rating. Anyone looking to stay in Managua should definitely stay at Hotel Contempo. We loved it and would like to return one day. We miss the staff already!

My stay at Contempo was truly pleasant. The staff is fantastic. Beginning with Jaime Osorio, the manager, Daria Mitrofana, the hostess, who made me feel at home and the waiters at restaurant. The hotel is just like an oasis in Manágua. The restaurant is wonderful. Food is really first quality and very tasty. I would recommend it for people looking for an exclusive hotel, a quiet place and very relaxing. I was traveling alone, but I can imagine is a wonderful place for people traveling together and in love. There's privacy and beauty. The pool is not big, but located in a very special location, with trees and a garden and you can really swim.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different and you must clarify what kind of decoration you prefer.

I'm from Miami and i travel to Nicaragua for business purposes and always stay at the Contempo Hotel due to their great customer service and good food. They make you feel welcome that soonest you get out of the taxi.
Trust me they will take care of you.

Room Tip: I personally stay at the Madera room, very quite.

This surprisingly beautiful hotel is off a busy and unattractive road south of Managua. It's modern, clean, elegant, spare, and very comfortable. The staff is attentive and caring, and the facilities are top notch. Our two-queen room had a living room and beautiful bathroom, muted natural light, and marble floors. The beds were comfortable, and the A/C ice cold (very welcome in Managua!)

The restaurant is particularly good, and the food rivals that at the best restaurants in Nicaragua and in the United States. We had fish, chicken, and a vegetarian option, and all were superior, and the service was excellent.

The outdoor pool is in a lovely private garden setting, and is clean and warm. It's long and thin, good for laps, with a very shallow shelf at one end for sitting on or playing with babies or toddlers.

The location of the hotel makes it an odd choice if you'll be staying for more than one or two days, as there is nothing nearby and Managua isn't a great destination (the rest of the country is the reason to visit Nicaragua). But we met a couple who had spent their entire week-long vacation there and were very happy.

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in, and I'd stay here any time I was passing through Managua. The free airport shuttle is a deal, and there's a Hertz desk in the lobby, so you can pick up/drop off a rental car from the hotel, instead of at the airport.
