Good mattress - always important for me. View from the sixth floor of the ships coming into the Miraflores Lock was super! Loved having passion fruit at the breakfast buffet, and the seafood dinners in the restaurant were delicious (we were there for "marisco night"). The hotel is clean and comfortable, and reception staff always friendly and helpful. Special accolades... More

Great location, helpful staff and great swimming pool. Paid $90 for the night which seemed high at the time but after traveling Panama, this hotel was better than the average but below the average price I paid. As for location, its right across the street from the canal, maybe 20 minute drive from Panama City which is out of the... More

Had an absolutely amazing stay at the Holiday Inn, overlooking the Panama Canal! Woke up every morning to see the huge ships passing through the canal, and was within walking distance of a beautiful park nearby to exercise everyday! Rooms were very clean, but what impressed me most were the unbelievably helpful and genuinely friendly staff from the front desk,... More

HI as you know varies in quality around the world. This is a nice one. We stayed here New Years Eve and it was a party. $50 got us a nice buffet, all we could drink, DJ with a good sound system, party favors and bubbly at midnight. They lost money on our table. The room was clean and modern... More

The road and the railway to Colon are just under your window... Breakfast just ok, meals just ok... Good swimming pool, staff very nice... Very isolated without... More

Holiday Inn with the confusing two names "at the Panama Canal" or "City of Knowledge" has a very conveniant location for visitors to the Miraflores locks and City of Knowledge. Stayed two periodes (canal view rooms at 5th and 6th floor). Great room-view of the gigantic vessels passing through the canal. Sadly it wasn't possible to open the dirty windows... More

It had been a while since I stayed at this HI. Location and view of the canal is what makes this a good place to stay although not central as far as downtown Panama. Property is on the newer side. Front desk service was good and priority club recognition great. Nice gesture to have a fresh plate of snacks and... More

While the rooms were clean and the restaurant quite good, the Internet was horrible. Furthermore, the IT rep was unable to keep anything beyond a weak wireless signal or a reliable cable connection. We could send some text-based e-mail but could not bring up a web page. As a businessman, I need to stay connected. If that means driving an... More
