As is only to be expected from a capital city, Managua has a full range of accommodation options, from the crudest bedrooms with padlocks on the doors and shared outhouses, to the most plush suites with beds like clouds, staff at your beck and call and bathtubs big enough to swim in. For the most part, what youâ€™re willing to pay will determine where you should look for a room. Managua hostels and cheap hotels are generally situated in Barrio Martha Quezada, which has a range of backpacker hostels and hospedajes (of both the sordid and spotless varieties); the Centro Commercial has cornered the market when it comes to grand, luxury hotels (the exception being the Crown Plaza on Martha Quezada outer edge); while both Barrio BoloÃ±ia and Los Robles each claim a number of boutique and business-oriented hotels. Weekends are the best time to stay in the centro, since the luxury hotels lower their prices. Youâ€™re unlikely to ever be stuck without a room in Managua, but if you have your heart set on a particular hotel, make sure to call ahead and have them reserve a space.
