There is no category just to review Panama City itself. So I chose a location at random in order to leave my comments. I never visited this hotel. We saw Panama City only in passing (from the canal). What a surprise. High rise buildings and skyscrapers began to come into view, visible over the intervening hill. Then, as we got...

This hotel is not one of the better ones. Very tired room, scratched furniture, broken drawers, double bed, skimpy pillows, broken shower head, not up to date on maintenance at all. Wouldn't stay again. Breakfast was "free" and not much choice. Look for better. Several in the general area. Construction next door, if a tall bldg, then any view will...

I understand not everything can be done but just a small effort or even make it seem like you're trying goes a long way. Before the stay i sent many mails requesting payment info in Spanish and English but no reply.. Then the staff was also unwilling to make an effort to comply.. How won't a hotel charge a credit...

Don't spend your money here. The people are unfriendly. The two women behind the reception are awful. The room and the food is not special. The room smells musty. Only the swimming pool on the roof is nice, but that's all. I'm never going back to this hotel (and that's the first time I said this in my life).

This hotel is in a great area, has a rooftop pool with city view, a free served breakfast, wifi, free garage parking, and computers for your use, and comfy clean rooms. Supermarkets, a varity of restaurants are within walking distance.

Very good hotel for a short period of time! It is comfortable. I did have a bad experience with the food, the meat was really hard and it was really unpleasant, they didn't give any discount because of it. Besides that, the hotel had a very good service and very nice rooms, clean bathrooms and good wifi!

Other than price and location (which is excellent) across the street from a topnotch restaurant, near shopping, taxis, wine bars - this hotel has nothing to offer except a bed. The rooms (I looked at several) were not clean, and the smell of mildew is strong). No way to access fresh air except through shared balcony. Security is poor (no...

This hotel represents great value for money in Panama. It is close to main roads and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Dont expect 5 star amenities, but really when you look at the room rate you would hardly expect that - but I do think this hotel offers a little more than you would expect for the price....

The location is good, you can walk to interesting areas, and not particularly noisy considering where you are. Of course, don't expect top performances, yet room is acceptable, flat screen TV is a pleasant plus, staff - beyond the lazy first impression - is smiling and helpful, and all in all we were glad about the choice. Again, if you...

This is an old hotel, kind of dingy, about a mile off the main drag, Avienda Balboa, so nicely located near all the big name hotels, but neighborhood seemed to be in at the beginning of an area that was starting to look rather rough. The view from my balcony looked over what appeared to be a junk yard that...
