Reviewed 4 March 2014

We used this hotel for one night at the end of our adventure, before a morning flight. For that purpose it was perfect, clean, quiet and friendly and with a good on-site restaurant. They provide free/safe airport transfer and the trip was not too long. It is in what seems to be an upscale residential neighborhood and we felt safe taking a short walk, but all the homes are behind high security fences. The hotel has a very small pool and hot tub in a pleasant, but not spectacular, outdoor courtyard. The restaurant is very modern and cafeteria-like (unfortunately having a TV going really ruins any ambiance for me), but the food was good. Our room was small, very clean and a bit strange - like someone trying for "boutique hotel" who had never really seen one. But it had a working safe and the bed was comfortable. There was a very fancy wedding going on the night we were there, which makes me think it may actually be very good by Managua standards - nothing with which to compare it, but certainly nothing like as nice as the hotels we stayed in at Granada and San Juan del Sur.

Room Tip: strangely our room had no outside windows, so ask if that is important to you.

This was our 2nd stay at Hotel Contempo. The hotel offers comfortable rooms, food and service - a great spot to start your Nicaragua adventure. Rooms are spacious, the bathrooms modern. The hotel restaurant and bar offer a good selection and service. And, the staff accommodating,.

We spent a few nights in Managua. The hotel was great, clean and quiet. Located in a residencial area. The restaurant was excellent, breakfasts and dinners. Service was very friendly and accessible at all times.

One night was not enough, but we got a lovely taste of this superbly run hotel and restaurant. The service was outstanding, the food delicious, the room and bed extremely comfortable. It was privately located away from the hustle and bustle of Managua's main drag. Free shuttle service to and from the Managua airport was a real plus. A must-stay for those with discriminating taste! Unfortunately, we had an early morning flight to catch and missed what the taxi driver told us was the best breakfast in Managua. Well, next time!

Stayed for one night as we flew into Managua and our transfer to the beach resort was the next day. The hotel sent a driver to meet us at the airport which was great so that when we came out of customs they were right there. Dinner was the best that I had while in Nicaragua and breakfast was great as well. Very clean room with comfortable bed and the staff were super friendly. The location is a bit out of the way of the airport but since they send a car it was definitely worth the 20 minute drive!

Contempo was a real dream come true for me and my now wife! Our wedding was on Dec 28th, 2013.
The staff was so helpful from the early stages of planning. Everything on Wedding Day worked out just as planned. Food was amazing (I was a little doubtful that our tasting that was for 3 people, would as good on Wedding Day; for 230 people!), everybody loved it! Service received many compliments as well.
Our hotel planner (Marjorie we love you!) stayed all through the night helping us and making sure everything came out just as we planned it.
In the end, all of our expectations were exceeded and we could not be any happier.
Highly recommend for an over night stay, every room is a unique experience.

We arrived late in Managua and the Contempo shuttle car are waiting to quickly whisk us away to the hotel. The hotel is out of the way but for just spending a night there that wasn't a concern. The entrance and lobby are gorgeous and modern. It was a treat to have them meet us at the car and take our bags and walk us directly to our room. No waiting for check-in. They offered to make us something to eat even though the restaurant was closed. We declined but that was they type of service they provided the whole time we were there. Instead we enjoyed a couple of local beers and visited with one of their employees. Wonderful young man he was but I can't remember his name. It's always a treat to be treated like someone special and Contempo does this well! Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Pictures were true to what we received.
