Summary

  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Small fitness center with pool views
  • Business center

  • Fee for airport shuttle (though it's not high)

Bottom Line

The Holiday Inn Managua is a large, above-average chain hotel. It's arguably a bit nicer than the Hotel Camino Real (the rooms and common spaces are more modern), but it's not as nice as the Intercontinental Real Metrocentro. The outdoor pool is attractive but can get quite crowded in the late afternoon, and the restaurant is solid. Rooms are about what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn -- clean and contemporary, with comfortable beds and generic decor -- and many have views of the pool or lake. There's a convenient airport shuttle (for a small fee) and Wi-Fi is available free of charge.

Within a short drive of a shopping mall and Ruben Dario National Theater

Map of Holiday Inn Managua - Convention Center

Managua is Nicaragua's capital and main commercial center, though it holds little appeal for tourists, who typically only stop over here before or after a flight. The Malecon area on Lake Managua is a bustling area with multiple restaurants, and there are ferries departing from the pier to tour the lake (though note that the lake itself is polluted).

  • 6-minute drive to Plaza Inter, the country's largest shopping mall
  • 9-minute drive to the Ruben Dario National Theater
  • 10-minute drive to Malecon de Managua, a restaurant area and pier on Lake Managua
  • 20-minute drive to the airport in Managua (though can be much longer in traffic)
  • 43-minute drive to Granada
  • 2-hour drive to San Juan Del Sur
  • 2-hour-5-minute drive to Leon
