Linda Vista (Calle Las Acacias 1438, tel. 504/238-2099, www.lindavistahotel.com, US$49 s, US$65 d) is an attractive bed and breakfast with six cozy, tastefully decorated rooms, each with TV, direct-dial telephone, air-conditioning, and wireless Internet. There is a small but lovely colonially furnished common area with tile floors, with a computer for Internet access. Living up to its name, Linda Vista has a beautiful view from its garden.
Leslie’s Place (tel. 504/220-7494, www.dormir.com, US$70 s, US$87 d), on the other side of Hotel San Martín in a converted house with a patio, offers eight rooms decorated with new furniture and equipped with TV, direct-dial telephone, and modem Internet.
An excellent midrange option run by a Honduran-American family, five minutes from the airport in the southeast part of the city, at Colonia Humuya 1150, is the Humuya Inn (tel. 504/235-7275, www.humuyainn.com, US$75 s, US$87 d), with nine spacious rooms and three suites, all with wood beams and tile floors, cable TV, air-conditioning, free wireless Internet access, and walk-in showers. Five efficiency apartments with full kitchens are available for US$1,100 per month. The only drawback (not a drawback at all, for some) is that there’s not much in the way of restaurants or nightlife in the quiet residential neighborhood well away from downtown or Boulevard Morazán, but the hotel offers a simple buffet breakfast with the price of the room, and lunch and dinner are also available. It can fill with mission groups, so try to book ahead.
Those who want the amenities of a larger hotel can consider the fairly new Florencia Plaza Hotel (tel. 504/232-3800, www.florenciaplazahotel.com, US$69 s, US$81 d), conveniently located on the Boulevard Suyapa, not far from the Mall Multiplaza. The hotel has a pool, bar, and restaurant, and rooms have TVs, Internet, and mini-fridges (suites with sitting areas are also available). Rates include breakfast.
