“Very nice and comfortable; good value”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Stay in on of the lovely cottages out back. All in different colors and with their own porch and rocking chairs. Paid $12/night. You an rent a room for $8 but run the risk of being disturbed as the walls are thin. It's a nice, clean friendly place.

Room Tip: Rent a cottage in the back of the hotel.

I ended staying here 2 extra nights to rest and relax as I found the place quiet and staff attentive and very helpful. I had arrived on the ferry from Granada rather tired and unwell and I accidentally found this place after being annoyed by a guy who was recruiting for one of the other hotels in town on the ferry. The staff were very attentive and helpful, the hotel is clean and rooms too. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in town.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a hammock, great for some downtime between being on the road.

I often stayed at Hotel Central, but walked out last week. I had always prefered the lovely 'cabañas' in the garden. They are very nice. Very quiet, surrounded by huge old mango trees, and tamarindo. It used to be $16 for 2. Now it's $24 ($40 with A/C). Clearly not worth it.

Small rooms inside are available w/bath 2 for $16.


The staff changes constantly. Bad sign.

The kitchen produces relatively good meals, and I go there for breakfast and excellent coffee.

Room Tip: Patio cabañas are the nicest. Overpriced.

I traveled for 6 weeks in Morocco and this was by far the best value of all the hotels I stayed in. I paid 7 dollars (during the rainy season) for a very clean room that was nicer than some places I later stayed for three times as much.

We stayed at Hotel Central after arriving by ferry from Granada. Based on a recommendation by a fellow traveler we called ahead to make a booking and arrange for pickup from the Ferry. All worked out great, they called our name as soon as the ferry docked and took us in their pickup to the hotel.
The room only cost $14 a night and included the pickup. We left the next day for their sister Hotel "El Porvenir" in Santa Cruz. But hindsight, the Central was by far the best value for money that we found in all of Ompetepe, wish we stayed there longer.
The owner (or manager?) was very friendly, had good command of English.
We asked them to book the "El Porvenir" for us but they couldn't/wouldn't quote a price.

The food was pretty good, although we only had a little snack that night. But the fish that the couple next to us ate was looking very tasty.

If we ever return to Ometepe, we will make the Central in Altagracia our base.
