Actually I would rate Estrella 4 stars, but the place is so beautiful, the value for money deserves 5 stars. The building is unbelievably stunning, especially the open lobby with direct view of the ocean. The beach is just scross the street.

It looks like a high class hotel but has a hostel vibe with the laid back staff, shared bathrooms and small kitchen. This was no problem for us, we enjoyed the whole package. We had a room with ocean view from the side which was gorgeous.

Everything was super clean.

Only downsides: cold showers and if you wake up easily, it‘s quite loud from 7 in the morning (coffee machine and music). Also we has strong wind which was pounding at the windows and made the kitchen without doors difficult to use (the gas flame would turn off easily). We didn’t mind the rather hard matresses, they were still very comfortable.

If you get the chance, try the great cheesecake.

My wife and I for family reasons come to Nicaragua almost every year. Once in a while we cone to San Juan del Sur and every time we tried to book a room at the Estrella it was booked.. This time we lucked out and booked 4 nights. San Juan was our stop over for a rest and recuperation from the trip from Canada.
The Estrella was built in the early 1920s. It's been renovated but still retains its colonial architecture and feel. We selected a non air conditioned room overlooking the ocean which was great for the view and the ocean breeze but hot in the late afternoon when the sun arched over the hotel and shinned through our room. No peoblem, the ocean is across the steet with a cool dip waiting for you. Restaurants and shops are all a short walk away. The restaurants serves excellent coffee with a great restaurant to boot .

Room tip: Rooms are small but ocean views are great but hot in the late afternoon. Rooms with AC are dark and closterfobic. Ask for room 5 or 6.

We stayed in the Hotel for two nights and really enjoyed it. Room, shared kitchen and bathroom were very clean and in the kitchen you can find everything you need. Staff was very friendly as well.
The room we stayed in had a small balkony but no windows. The bed was quiet hard.
