I recently stayed at Avila Hotel for a whole week and was expecting a better experience. After arriving in town about 7pm I had to drive 30 minutes to get to downtown Panama City. Once I got there, it took over an hour to find the hotel (even after asking police, taxi drivers and others). When I finally it, I... More

I visited the Avila Hotel with my daughter in law and used my Jubilado discount. The discount was applied, but they chose to charge me the same amount saved for the 'extra' person in the double room. I would never stay there again. The room did not have the advertised amenities, down to the shower cap which I insisted they... More

The hotel website photos look nothing like what we saw. It states the rooms are spacious and "are elegantly furnished with cozy, intimate feeling" for long term stay with quality towels, robes and toiletries to include moisture lotion. The room was adequately clean, but the towels were cheap and small, no robes and basic toiletries which did not include the... More

I stayed in the Avila for about ten days in January 2013 and was very satisfied. I changed to the Avila from another hotel in the area because of a poor WiFi connection in the first hotel. The free WiFi in the Avila worked perfectly. The room and bathroom were quite nice. The personnel was always helpful, with whom I... More

I stayed here only one night. I had a reservation (made online with 2 other couples) but did not have my confirmation number with me. The staff who speak almost no English were unable to find the reservation even though I printed the names for all 3 rooms booked. I finally phoned my friend who gave me the number and... More

The property is average, but location wise is not right. My compliment to the management, booked for 3 nights, pay in advance. had to leave in 1 night, and they willing to refund the unused nights. A quality which almost impossible to be found in any other place.

Stayed here one night at a good price. The room was clean a a sky scraper could ve viewed from my window. Breakfast was ok and underground parking was good. The AC did take a while to cool the room but no problem after it was running.

The hotel it is just average and nothing else! Let me start from the beginning... (1) The welcoming was average, not that I wanted a royal treatment, but a smile goes a long way. (2) The first room that they put me in smelled sooo badddd, that all I did was to enter & exit out right away, it was... More
