“Nothing fancy, but great value for money vs other choices”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Hotel Venecia is a very average-looking budget hotel...however, compared to other options nearby it provides great value for money! For $30 per night you can get a room with a/c, cable tv, and a good private bathroom with hot shower. Nearby backpacker's hostel Mamallena's charges the same for its private rooms which are much more basic - have no tv, a/c that is only turned on at night time, and no bathroom (you must use the communal showers/toilets). Hotel Venecia is just two blocks away from Mamallena's...

The hotel is not particularly pretty, but it is clean, feels safe, and the reception staff were nice enough. There is also a restaurant attached to the hotel which serves pretty good food - the Club Sandwich (not on many menus in Panama!) was DELICIOUS! This is a really nice benefit if you're just there for a night or two and don't feel like trawling the local streets for lunch or dinner (there's not much to be found in that neighbourhood anyway). The location is fine as a base for exploring the city - pretty central.

Reviewed 12 September 2011

We stayed here in July when our regular budget hotel was full. It's on a busy street with the associated traffic noise but the window AC blocks out most of the noise. There is limited garage parking for about 10 cars, and the front desk has a view of the garage. The door is raised when you honk and lowered when you're inside. So i guess anyone could get inside but not everyone could get out :)
You climb a flight of stairs to go from street level to the front desk (no elevators or handicap access).

LIKES: The front desk staff was cordial and there are people to help you with your bags to the room. They DO honor the pensionado discount (for foreigners with a pensionado resident visa). There is free wi-fi in the lobby only. The rooms are okay with cable TV. The price is very reasonable. There is a small restaurant and bar adjacent to the hotel which you can enter without going out on the street.

DISLIKES: It's not in the best area of town for going out at night. There aren't many grocery stores or restaurants that are open and close in the evenings. The open areas are not air-conditioned, and the stairs can be tough for the elderly or handicapped.

OVERALL: For the discounted price it's a good value.

We liked this hotel. It was pretty cheap ($50 for a quad room), clean and with free internet. Service was good and employees very nice and helpful.
