Enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was AMAZING!! Very accommodating and always helpful. The breakfast was great everyday and they always went out of their way to make sure we were okay. Hotel was clean and well maintained and I always felt safe. I had no problems with my room. Would definitely come back!
I stayed at Aloha Hotel for a total of 7 days in Oct./Nov, 2017. My first consideration when looking for a hotel in this area was to be close to Metrocentro and the UCA bus station. Well, I didn't use the bus station even once, but Metrocentro became my daily evening hangout while I was in Managua, due to a vibrant presence of people at all times, and a diversity of shopping and restaurants.
My week at Aloha ended up being much more than just a room to sleep. As it is a small hotel, I received personalized attention, being asked every morning how I wanted my omelette prepared, if I had slept well, if there was something that the hotel could do to make my stay more pleasant, etc.
The greatest asset of this hotel is the staff. Without exception, all the ladies who work there were VERY polite, hard working, and performed their duties with pride.
Even though the hotel is close to main streets, it's very quiet, being in a dead-end residential street. Every morning, I just had to walk one block to the Consulate of Costa Rica, and take one of the many inexpensive taxis waiting for passengers, to go where I wanted to.
I recommend Aloha Hotel as a good budget option in Central Managua.
This place is at the lower-middle end of prices for hotels in Managua (Any lower and you start getting really rough and it very questionable locations).
All the staff are very friendly and keen to help (one man on reception speaks fluent English)
Room was OK. Water pressure in the shower was pathetic though. They had older type of air con units which I mistakenly left on overnight and woke up with a sore throat)
Breakfast is free but basic - rice and beans, fruit, juice, tortillas with chicken.
Wifi was good and strong.
It's a little tucked away but all the taxi drivers knew where it was. (Top tip, coming from the airport, walk onto the main road and get a taxi from there. On the way back to the airport, my taxi was only $7.50!! I think the rather ancient driver thought I was a local)
Spent one night in Managua to begin a two week vacation. This little B&B was a little hard to find at first, but I blame Google maps for that. Staff is friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quiet. There was major construction happening across the street in front of our room, but once inside we couldn't hear it. We were very surprised by that. Breakfast was fine with platano maduro, gallo pinto, some sort of salty cheese, yogurt, cereal, and eggs made to order. The really nice Hilton is right up the street, but significantly more expensive. We were glad to stay at Hotel Aloha.
Hotel Aloha was a site for sore eyes in the midst of the Managua madness.
I was very sick when I went there and was pleasantly surprised to find a very clean and comfortable place to stay. The staff were very accommodating and helped with taxis and directions. I loved it so much I stay there again on my way back to the airport and was able to book the day of easily.
internet was a bit spotty depending on the room we stayed in... but that's Nicaragua for you.
