Needs some rehab and a good coat of paint. Basic hotel, noisy due to traffic. I did not find the location all that bad. I could walk to the old city or downtown or take a taxi for $3 to $5 dollars Most likely I will not return but for the price I felt safe just wish it was better... More

I was there in December for a couple of days and the first room was sparse. No hot water and the air conditioner remote consisted of unplugging the unit from an unprotected, uncovered receptacle. No screens on windows and pretty noisy. I could not get the safe to open and after the receptionist mocked me for not being able to... More

I cannot say enough about Jose Carlos and his staff. I was moving from Los Angeles to Bocas del Toro, with an overnight stop in Panama City. The Hotel Benidorm was one of two hotels I was looking at, based on the fact that they both accepted pets. After exchanging a couple of emails with Jose Carlos, it was very... More

The staff at this hotel were fabulous! The front desk staff were always helpful and had big smiles for their customers. We could not get Wi-Fi in our room and Jose personally came and worked with us until we were up and running!! Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable.

The hotel meets all of the basics: clean, not a violent neighborhood, wifi. It is located in a very working-class neighborhood. A meet-the-basics kinda place like this needs something to set it apart to make it feel like you could come back again, but it doesn't. What killed it for me were two events. 1 although I had asked the... More

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Benidorm, these are the reasons: 1. Both managers Patricia and Jose do their very best to serve you. I once had a disagreement with one of the waiters at the restaurant and they paid my breakfast at another hotel and next day the disagreement was solved and service got much better. 2. I assure...

I have stayed at the Benidorm several times over a lengthy period of time. The internet is included in the price, the location is great, very central and right across the street from a supermarket.
