“We won't be back...”
Reviewed 30 August 2011

We arrived in Managua after dark and wanted a safe and reasonable place to stay. So, out came Lonely Planet - Central America on a Shoestring. "Our Pick" of Sleeping accommodation in Managua was the Hotel los Felipe, described as "hands down the best value in town..." Hmmmmm.

The front desk was smart enough, and the lady was friendly enough... but the rooms were dreadful. Anyway, it was dark out, and we were in no mood to risk walking round the area (we were warned that it wasn't safe, and even walking a few yards from the Ticabus station we were approached by some decidedly dodgy looking guys) so we checked in - 2 double rooms at $20 each. To some extent you get what you pay for but these grubby rooms didn't appear to have even been cleaned since the last people stayed there - there was still litter and empty drink bottles lying around. The bed sheets were old and threadbare, and there were spiders webs all over one pillow. Add to that, the toilet was leaking in one of the bathrooms, one of the taps was falling off and that both bathrooms were pretty grubby...

We checked out early the next morning.

Reviewed 26 February 2011

This place is for some completely incomprehensible reason listed as an “our pick” in the Lonely Planet Nicaragua – honestly, this evaluation is the most misleading we have come across in our 3.5 months in Central America. It’s affordable, sure, but it’s not very nice, rooms are tiny and smell, sheets don’t feel clean, the bathroom in our room was centimetres from “disgusting”. Oh, and the pool was not filled when we where there. The lady in reception was not the most accommodating we have met, and they would not let us leave a bag behind for 5 days while we went to the Corn Islands.
