Stayed here for three night. Very pleasant stay. Free breakfast is really well prepared. Also booked my Caynon Tour here. Was very well arranged. Had a very good time at Hotel Colonial. This place suits all audiences.

Good location, but that's all that was good about this place.

Poor rooms, we changed 3 of them until we got to stay in a decent one, the water in the bathroom wasn't working at all, we couldn't even go to the toilet, nor taking a shower.

Fortunately, we only had to spend there one night, as we were there only for the Somoto canyon trip.

I traveled to Somoto for the first time and our group originally reserved this hotel. Upon arrival our group leader told us that everything except for the upcoming lunch was canceled and that we would stay in another hotel due to the substandard of Hotel Colonial. The rooms were dirty, there were no toiletries, the towels had not been changed nor had some of the sheets been laundered. Luckily we changed hotels. Unfortunately the lunch that we still ate at the hotel was still planned. Aside from the gutter system flooding the restaurant floors we, a group of 20 people ate food that was under cooked and RAW. 8 people had raw chicken and had to ask for another plate. The waiter did not apologize and the owner never came out to apologize. This had to be the most disgusting meal I have had in my entire life and it was not a good start to my first visit to Somoto.

There's cockroaches falling from the roof in the middle of the night, only to land on your pillow with no covers, the sheets are clearly used since there's other peoples hair in it, there's moths all over the ground. The shower is a drain that wets you, that's about it. It's the worst hotel. I slept for an hour because I spent the rest of the night dodging the flying cockroaches.

Overall the actual hotel isn't too bad. The room is sufficient and comfortable if you can get it for the reduced price. We first went to Hotel Panamericano as this was recommended to us however $12 US p/p was out of our price range so we went to Hotel Colonial. After showing us a room the guys at reception told us the price of $20 US for the room but then asked us if we were going to do a canyon tour as they could discount the room to $12 US if we booked the tour through them. We hadn't seen any other accommodation options in town so decided we would stay here. While filling out our details the receptionists were asking which tour we wanted and when we asked if we could think about it they stated that we needed decide right away as we were getting a discounted rate for the room on the proviso that we booked a tour through them. It felt quite forced but the prices quoted for the tour were comparable to those we had seen elsewhere. The tour itself was quite disappointing as it was not as long as we had paid for (see my review for Somoto Canyon) but the hotel reception and management did not want to assist us when we raised our concerns over not getting what we paid for - they told us it was a problem with the guide however we had paid them and not the guide directly. There was a couple on our tour who also stayed at this hotel for the discounted rate however they organised the tour themselves using the reception telephone and paid $10 US less p/p. If staying at this hotel and booking a tour, make sure it is clear exactly what you are paying for and that everyone on your tour is doing the same number of hours you have paid for.
