My first impression was that the two women working the front desk were not very nice. Cold and very unhelpful. The checked us in without any conversation and took a long time for the process. They never spoke to us until they handed us the key. The lobby was air conditioned but as soon as we checked in with our... More

The room was at least clean and the hot water worked fine. Internet was also available in our room. The room had a window. There is no real airport transfer as they mention in the web. The latest transfer they could arrange was at 2pm while our flight was at 9pm. The AC was horrible. It was so loud, that... More

I stayed one night there in August. I had booked a room online for $35, and my very late arrival did not cause any check-in problem. Let me start with the downside of the hotel. The elevator either did not exist or work, and I had to walk up to the sixth floor. There was no food or even a... More

The place seemed reasonably clean, but the elevators were broken. The other side of the hotel, the 'pension' leads to a common hallway, and that charges by the hour, but i the rooms for the less reputable 'pension' side and the 'hotel' side are shared. I laid down for about an hour in the night then woke up, and my... More

We checked in there late at night and enjoyed our 2 night stay. It was dead cheap and with all the necessary things like air conditioning, sky TV, Wi-Fi and hot water. It was not outstanding but much better and cheaper then other hotels in the area - $45 - $80 There is also a night bar next door, which... More

Usually I don't write the negative reviews, but this hotel will be one of the exceptions. We spent in it 4 nights in urgent situation (we found in the Tocumen that our online reservation with other B&B was not honured - it is the subject for another review), so we didn't have possibility to make online research. The hotel is... More

This was ou first night in Central America and a dreadful start. The hotel let rooms by the hour and one can imagine the reason for this with a red light outside!! The rooms were dark and dingy and the area around the hotel was dismal.

DO NOT STAY HERE. We went to Panama for our honeymoon and chose this hotel based on reviews and was the worst decision ever. We were advised by the taxi driver this is a very unsafe place for tourist but we didn't listen. When we walked into the place it looked weird but walking into the room it just looked... More
