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

Great location for victors at the city of knowledge. Very close the the canal and the locks. Hotel was clean and modern. Bed was fairly firm. And though they had the option of both firm and soft pillows, to me They both were over inflated. Bathroom was clean. The free wifi on the 6 th floor was non-existent. Only could... More

I went on a business trip to Panama travelling all the way from Europe so I was very tired and really hoped for a good night's sleep. They outdid themselves. The quality of the beds is superb and they also have very good air conditioning. I was upgraded to a "canal view" room, which was very nice of them but... More

Very nice, friendly staff, all amenities in the rooms, very safe area. Will stay here during our next visits. Easy access from albrook and corredor norte. The airport shuttle is a fantastic idea, specially if you are comming from the interior and spending the night to take the 1st flight the next day.

The room and service were great but the gym had no elliptical machines. The Internet was reliable less than 50% of the time, buthey were working on fixing it. The two dinners I had at the restaurant were reasonably priced and superbly prepared.

A good comfortable hotel next to the canal. It served a purpose for a week as I was there on business, but, the hotel bar could be better and very little to do in the local area in the evening. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, plus, the free airport transfer in the morning was great, so, I... More

I had the opportunity to stay 3 times in this hotel, Sep. '13, Nov. '13 together with my wife and now in March and each time has been a great stay.

very impressed by this small hotel overlooking the passing of the ships/vessels crossing the Canal. Clean and very customer oriented. with free shuttle to shopping center and panama canal, and free wifi. Food was good though a bit expensive but Panama overall has gone expensive these past two years. management as well friendly and customer focused.
