I just spent 2 weeks at the Hotel Ivanias while studying Spanish in Masaya. There are few options for real hotels in Masaya rather than downscale hostels. The staff were incredibly helpful here, particularly Frederico, the day manager who is fluent and English and Marbell the night manager. You can order breakfast at 7 a.m and eat on tables poolside...

We stayed at the hotel for one night. It was actually quite dirty, the pillows had mice poop and the toilet seat was grey, I had to shrub it so that my young kids can go to the bathroom. Mattresses are old and we woke up with back pain. The place did not feel safe either.

I had heard about this hotel from a few acquaintances and the other day i needed a place to spend the night. I was pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. First and foremost it was clean and freshly painted. The rooms are spartan but then again thus was not a luxury hotel. The security was also impressive. The drink refrigerator even... More

My Husband & I stayed here one night. The man at the counter Fredrico was rood. I was very nice to him but he must not have liked us being foreigners to his country. Really did not feel welcome. He never smiled or at least acted friendly. Room was clean and had AC. The shower had no water pressure but... More

It is a nice building with a courtyard with a small and clean pool. The rooms are perfectly clean and ok. Mine had no windows at all, but a functioning airco unit. The shower in my room refused to produce warm water and that was a big let down. Hotel was fully booked so could not change the room, understandably.... More

The manager is a bit dour, but he speaks English (always important in these parts) and is pretty helpful. The staff is constantly busy cleaning. Our room with two queen beds was bigger than we expected. The hotel has a small pool and offers an okay breakfast that is made to order (choose between pancakes or eggs). The only negative... More

There is not many options in Masaya. We were looking for a place with secure parking lot and consider it as a good option. The rooms indeed are dark and the AC doesn't work at its best, but still good option for one night. Staff is average as well as their attention.

I had a one night stay here, booked here due to accessibility and I was against time, despite the negative reviews. The bed is comfortable, pillows are soft, AC works and shower has hot water. Not to mention that they have a free secure & private parking for guests. Staff is also very nice! No negative comments

After reading all the reviews online, I still booked Ivania's due to the location and minimal options nearby. The room I had was small and dark, but clean, and the air conditioning worked fine. There were problems with the water (low pressure and tepid at best), and the rattling of a nearby tin roof, which sounded like an amateur production... More

“I think all the rooms are solid, but if you are hyper sensitive about a small amount of noise, ask for a room a few yards away from where the (free) breakfast is served each morning. Also, there is no pool, but the above rating system doesn't give you such an option to select. Same for fitness center...the fitness center is actually all around you....favorite? The central park.”
