The good: The staff is wonderful, nice and very helpful! Great location to be in the culture of the city and very close to the new modern area of Panama City! Close grocery store, local resturants and bars. A lot of police presence which is very good! The bad: Not enough towels, no hand towels, the wi-fi is poor, no... More

This hotel is great if you are looking for some place to stay that is affordable. It's really close to the big shopping malls and the less extravagant ones. (bare in mind that the latter has aewsome deals $3.99 and up on blouses and $5.99 and up on jeans for men and women!) yards away from the hotel and they're... More

The place was in a dirty run down part of town. Our flight got in late, we were tired, couldn't find the place. The lady was super nice checking us in. The room was super plain, sorta clean,tv didn't work, no shampoo or anything extra. We didn't want to shower there. Very noisy outside, but we were exhausted from travel.... More

If they want to charge American prices, they should provide American amenities. I can get a cheap motel in the States with more to offer. The air conditioner blew warm air, there is one outlet available that is 6 ft. up the wall, the toilet didn't flush, there was a desk with no chair, no toiletries, iron, trash can, coffee... More

Spent 7 days at this hotel. I think some of the reviews here might give this place a bad reputation, so I felt the need to weigh in on my honest experience. I travelled here alone, and in the past I've spent my vacations on all-inclusive style resorts rated 4 stars or higher. I truly enjoyed my time spent at... More

We spent 4 nights at Hotel 2 Mares. The first 3 nights happened to be while carnival was happening. We were so suprised that we could walk to the festivities in 10 min. The staff were all very professional and helpful. All spoke english and help out with all our questions and never made us feel like we were imposing... More

I booked this hotel at the last minute as I decided after 11 nights in resort areas that I should spend a few nights in the city. Big Mistake!! Could have ruined my vacation but I just wouldn't let it. I will say the only saving grace for me was a few of the staff who were very nice -... More

My wife & I stayed here during mid-December 2012. The hotel is affordable and provides free breakfast and air-conditioning (you have to ask the receptionist to turn the AC on each day when you come back to the hotel). The staff is friendly. It would help if you spoke some Spanish because the farther you are away from the posh... More

If you are familiar with hotels in developing countries and are looking for a simple, clean and cheap place to stay, this was not bad. If you've never been to a developing country before, I would recommend looking for a hotel in a more touristy part of town. There are not many good restaurants nearby. Most of the people around...
