Stayed two nights in January 2014. This is pretty much your standard budget hotel. Nothing fancy, but clean and safe. We paid $45 per night for a double room with two twin beds. No A/C, but we did have a window based cooling unit which worked fine to cool the rough enough to be comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful.... More

Stayed here for one nights and will never go back. With so many nice places to stay in Panama City the staff at this hotel should learn to be friendlier, or at least keep the place cleaner! Was given a dark, damp, and dirty room and was not accommodated when I requested a change. Then, when I asked to stay... More

Great Price and a reasonably central location in the Bella Vista district. We stayed in this hotel for four nights in February 2009. Rooms are a bit spartan, but adequate with functioning air conditioners. An adequate restaurant is in the hotel. Staff is accommodating.

It's a shame to have to write this review, because the hotel was otherwise convenient and fairly clean. However, our room was broken into during the last night of our stay when we were out to dinner, and our camera was stolen out of our bag. The locks on these doors are extremely easy to pick, and do not provide... More

I walked into the hotel without a reservation and they were more than happy to show me a room before I decided to stay. The staff was super friendly and always took a minute to speak to me if they saw me in the hallway. The hotel is a little outdated but comfortable and very clean. The rooms have hot... More

After our reservation was dumped by Albrook Inn we found this hotel by desperately knocking on many hotel doors at 2 am. The hotel is centrally located in the Bella Vista district of Panama City on a quiet residential street. The accomodations are spartan but they are clean and the staff is very friendly. The rooms have air conditioning and... More
