This is not a 3 star hotel or not the two rooms I was shown. The rooms I saw do not look like the photos they use to promote it so lower any expectations you may have. This is a pti stop to or from the airport or other destinations. Great SHUTTLE here. Staff are warm and friendly and helpful....

After 12 hours travel time, with little knowledge or understanding of Spanish, nothing made me happier than to see the crew from Hotel Don Carmelo holding up a sign to the glass door at the airport with my name on it! After clearing customs we loaded into a van and arrived at the hotel shortly after. My room was small...

Don Carmelo is an excellent choice to stay in Managua. Free airport and bus transportation truly makes traveling easier. Everyone on the staff from the driver, receptionists and cleaning crew were extremely friendly and helpful. Henry, the owner, is a brilliant professional who helped to navigate me to all the right places. The rooms are clean, have an AC, TV,...

Hotel Don Carmelo was a great and affordable hotel close to the airport that met all of our needs. The shuttle service to and from the airport was complimentary. They were waiting for us with a sign on our arrival. The staff was very kind and helpful but only spoke Spanish (very easy to understand even for beginners). Check in...

The perfect transit stop. Small but clean rooms and free wifi. AC in all rooms and a free breakfast in the morning. The free shuttle to or from the airport is a real plus. Don Carmelo is a $20 taxi ride from the airport. The front desk personnel are very helpful and a few speak very good English. I will...

I stayed here overnight on my way in to Nicaragua and again on my way out. Having someone pick you up at the airport and ferry you back really made all the difference to me especially as a solo traveler a little apprehensive about arriving at night. They also picked me up from the bus station when I returned the...

The Don Carmelo Hotel was a great stay the day of our arrival and our departure back home. A nice and welcoming gentleman was waiting for us at the airport holding our name so we would not miss him.

We stayed at the don Carmelo on either end of a trip to corn island as part of our Nicaragua itinerary.First off, as mentioned, the hotel is not located in a tourist area, and yes, as the rooms are basic and the bathroom is tiny. IMO, these quirks are more than compensated by many positives. All areas of the hotel...
