I'm on my fourth night at the hotel, and the ONLY bad thing I have to say about the Bristol is that the pool is only about 40 feet by 10 feet, and it was closed for maintenance. They were just filling it up, but it had a few missing tiles, so who knows. It's also a small pool area....

bristol is definitely a very nice property in PC, however there are SO many choices. Bristol is great if you are partial to the chain or subscribe to their points program. Stay here especially if you can get rooms for close to the price of a mid range hotel. that being said if you are most comfortable first world luxury...

We stayed one night in this hotel on our way to a cruise ship. The rooms are large, well appointed, and clean. However, furnishings are old and the shower in our bathroom needed serious work. The door was hanging to the side from top hinge while the fit left a quarter inch separation on both sides. This flooded the bathroom...

This is a lovely modern and elegant boutique hotel in a great central location. The room was spacious and very well decorated with all the quality touches expected, and the bath was very large. With a separate shower and tub you could choose your preferred way to relax. The penthouse Spa offered an extra level of pampering and relaxation. Dining...

We stayed for one night before heading out to Buenaventura. From start to finish, we had a great stay here. Hotel staff are extremely friendly. We also got a great dinner recommendation/reservation. Rooms, staff, breakfast - 5 stars through and through!

A welcome refuge in the city! Nora, the concierge was absolutely wonderful! Clean, nice staff. The location is just ok - had to Uber quite a bit, but that was no problem. I give it 4 stars because it's really lacking a pool and rooftop/outdoor oasis. Would recommend a high floor, because we were on the 6th floor and not...

Stayed here 1 night with my girlfriend before heading to Bocas Del Toro. Got dropped off by an Uber in the main driveway. No one offered assistance with the bags, which I thought was strange for a nice hotel with a high ranking. Check in was fine. We asked for a room on a high floor and the front desk...

The staff always makes or breaks a good hotel and this is not an exception. From the front desk to the maids, the staff was friendly and very helpful. We stayed in the executive tower. The rooms were very spacious and very comfortable. Excellent, comfortable bed and pillows. Very quiet, despite the downtown location. The bathroom was spacious with a...

We only spent one night in this hotel, but we would have enjoyed staying longer. The room was lovely, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is good. The decor of the public spaces and the room is elegant, the linens are high quality, and the amenities stocking the bathroom were very nice.

A buzy city hotel with class. We were very well taken of from check in to departure. I want to say a special thanks to the room maid who found my house keys. I didn't get her name but she knows who she is and it was so kind. It saved our holiday.
