The room was lovely and Marena is such a sweet host. She picked me up at the bus station and my friend at the airport and early the next morning she brought us away again. So nice to not have to worry about anything. Staying at Marena was definitely a great experience!
Marena was a super kind and helpful host. She sent us all information about directions to her house etc. as soon as we booked and we could arrive at any time we wanted. The room itself is spacious, very clean and of much better quality than normal houses in Nicaragua. Marena also prepared a delicious fruit salad for us in the morning so all in all we were very happy about our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Marena was a really wonderful host. Friendly and helpful in any way possible. The room is more like a small studio apartment. Very clean with a separate small room that serves as a walk-in closet and kitchenette equipped with refrigerator and coffee machine. Very comfortable and located off the street so it is very quiet. Its a great stay for a stop over in Managua.
Our host, Marena as well as her daughter were extremely nice and helpful! They picked us up from the airport at a VERY late hour (1:30 AM) and helped us get currency exchange at the best rate available. (27 cordobas for 1 USD).
The studio room was very clean and cute, the fan was great and kept both my boyfriend and I cool the whole night.
We loved everything about this apartment!
Marena went out of her way to make us feel comfortable - she helped us with directions, told us how much to pay for cabs, and even surprised us with a large bowl of fresh fruit on our first morning. (If anything, the apartment is a little bigger/nicer than the photos.)
Ciudad Jardín is a cool little neighborhood (non-touristy) and enjoyable to explore. It's situated close to many attractions; we walked to the waterfront, the market, and a bunch of other places from the apartment.
We highly recommend this place!
Marena was very welcoming and easy to work with as she did everything she could to accommodate us (even though we did not speak Spanish). She sent us directions for the taxi driver in Spanish to ensure we got their safely, and even ordered pizza for us as we were looking for a night in! The space was very well decorated and clean. There were a few critters (ants and mosquitoes) that got into the room, and the room was very hot and humid during the night (we visited the beginning of April.
Tuve que cancelar por motivos de salud, pero mi amigo y la chica que lo acompañó en vez de mi dijeron que Marena fue una gran host. El bus se les retrasó y ella les esperó por dos horas y al día siguiente los llevó a desayunar unos tamales deliciosos. Encantados tanto con el lugar como con la amabilidad y la disponibilidad de ella para todo. También mientras planeaba mi viaje, Marena fue muy rápida y amable en contestar todas mis preguntas.
