Nicaraguan Guest House (also known to taxi drivers as âbackpacker'sâ) is one of the few hotels in Managua that you can book online. The hotel has clean, if austere, rooms with large bathrooms and is within walking distance (through the leafy neighborhood) of Centro Comercial Las Americas, a mall with a food court and movie theater. Each room has a fan, television and air conditioning unit (although the last costs USD$35 to use). While the guest house is secure and has a friendly staff, the owners have oddly strict rules. Bello Horizonte's bars might be just down the road, but the hotel is only open between the hours of 4:30 a.m. and 11 p.m. -- the latter being both a guest curfew and time in which the electricity is shut off in the hotel (but not in the rooms). Signs over the toilets note that sexual tourism is prohibited; sets of guest rules are taped to almost every wall. Combine the curfew with a 10 a.m. checkout time, a bowl of fruit and cracker packet for breakfast, and location that airport taxis don't want to go to and Nicaragua Guest House becomes the place to book if you want a secure night before moving on to a better location.
