Bottom Line

The InterContinental Real Metrocentro is a polished business hotel that lives up to international expectations for luxury. Rooms have plush beds, modern bathrooms, and flat-screen TVs with cable (including English channels), and the features are extensive, including a staffed business center, ample meeting space, multiple restaurants, and a lovely outdoor pool. The hotel is a chain and feels like one, but there are elements of local charm in the common spaces -- brick ceilings, an ancient funerary urn displayed as art, and wrought iron grills in front of the restaurants. The food is solid: There's an extensive breakfast buffet with an omelet station, a lounge serving cocktails and sushi, and a steakhouse, not to mention 24-hour room service (a rarity in the country).

In downtown Managua, across the street from a shopping mall

Map of InterContinental Real Metrocentro Managua Hotel

The InterContinental has a central location in Managua, across from the country's largest shopping mall, Plaza Inter (though it's not especially large by international standards). 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).

  • 17-minute drive from the airport
  • 1-minute walk to Plaza Inter, the country's largest shopping mall
  • 6-minute drive to Malecon de Managua, a restaurant area and pier on Lake Managua
  • 45-minute drive to Granada
  • 2-hour drive to San Juan Del Sur
  • 2-hour-5-minute drive to Leon
