The hotel is located in a quiet area in front of the Panama Canal. This area used to be the "American Zone" but is now home to several universities and NGOs. Albroock Mall is a 15-minute drive away and there is shuttle service to the Mall and the airport at certain times of the day. The hotel is clean and... More

The hotel does NOT offer free airport transportation. They have a shuttle that will drop you off at the airport. It only runs at 7 am and 2 pm. You can see the canal but it is rather far. They do not suggest you walk there. The taxi to the canal and back to the hotel was a total of... More

The place, room and service were fine. People where very nice. However, I found the place a little noisy, especially around the spa room that is literally inside the gym. While the massage lady did her best to make it a relaxing moment, noises came next to the room with door slapping and God knows what else. I also found... More

Excellent hotel for a reasonable price. The breakfast was excellent. You get a made to order omelette and freshly made waffles. You have a great choice of pastries, juices, fruits, cut meats and cheeses. You also have cereals and good coffee. Comfortable and spacious rooms. We got a poolside room because it is cheaper. Since we spent an entire day... More

My daughter and I visited Panama for pleasure for six nights and I wanted to stay at this specific property because it was very reasonable for me to utilize my Priority Club Points and had a nice view of the canal.

Staff service is the best. A bit far from the city, but if you're working in Clayton or near the Panama Canal, it's the best you can get. Sometimes the train will wake you like at 5:00, but nothing you can't bear.
