We stayed in the Holiday Inn as a last minute decision. We originally was going to be camping but with it being rainy season and since we were caught out in the rain whilst on a hike and were wet through setting up a camp site wasnt going to happen. We turned up at night, soaking wet and carrying our... More

People at the hotel was flexible and gave nice attention. The hotel is located on a safe area, near to the Canal of Panama. Room clean. I had to leave earlier than the regular hour for the breakfast, but front desk people prepared my breakfast to take with me.

We stayed here to be close to the canal and it is a mixed bag-- yes, you are realtively near the canal and can see the canal traffic through binoculars (assuming you brought binoculars) but you are also very far from the rest of the city and isolated on a former military base, so be warned. Rooms are small, clean... More

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.
