We needed a room in Managua upon our arrival and between our Little Corn Island and San Juan del Sur legs of our stay in Nicaragua. The easy thing would have been to book the hotel right outside the airport. But that seemed bland, and the reviews of La Pyramide led me to email Manfred about staying at his place...it was a great decision.
Leading up to our trip, Manfred was very attentive to emails that helped us prepare. He's got a quick wit and a friendly manner - along with a wealth of knowledge and experience - all of which serves him extremely well in his chosen line of business.
Manfred arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport, take us to dinner our first night, take us back to the airport (very early to catch the first plane to Little Corn Island), pick us up again at the airport, etc. All at a very reasonable rate - and I wouldn't have wanted to drive myself in Managua anyway...fairly chaotic and confusing to say the least!
Due to our early morning flight to Little Corn Island, we didn't get to enjoy the regular full breakfast service but Manfred did arrange for fresh fruit to be available to us that day which was appreciated.
We ate a full breakfast one morning and a delicious meal (at very reasonable prices) one evening at La Pyramide. And...cold beer is on hand. Always a plus.
We stayed one night on a main floor room in the main building & one night in an upper floor room in one of the side buildings. Both were comfortable and clean - the one in the main building was larger.
I would not hesitate one bit to recommend La Pyramide to anyone seeking a non-cookie cutter hotel chain - the reviewers here have it right: Manfred's service and attention to detail are top notch. You'll be glad to stay in this unique lodging in a residential part of Managua, and you'll feel like you've made a new friend in Manfred. We'll definitely be back on future trips to Nicaragua.
