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

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

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

$30 for double bed, cable TV, hot water, AC. Room was clean and quiet. Bed was comfortable and new. Hotel staff was friendly. WiFi available and internet access in lobby and next door. Convenient to local bus stop (right outside door) and free shuttle to/from airport ($25 dollar value). Restaurant in lobby. Area seemed safe at night, though I wouldn't... More
