We just came back from a one week Business trip to Panama City, my wife made the booking and the price value (110USD per night) is a great deal if one considers all the offerings. The weakest part of the stay was the internet service, if at all this would be one reason why I may not return. We both... More

It’s a very charming small hotel in Panama City. The hotel has great rooms with Jacuzzi and king size beds. The breakfast is good. You have to ask if you want some thing additional. Only we didn’t understand why the owner decided to build this nice hotel in that location.

Great experience, especially knowing the price was more than reasonable. The room was spacious, and came with a hot tub! Also in the lobby you get the benefit of free iced tea and wine, as well as cookies. The best part was our host, Leonard at the front desk, who was amazing. He really knows how to make the guests...

Nice hotel - quirky and boutique, but most of the comforts of a bigger, more anonymous chain hotel. Great, if fairly basic, breakfasts. Lovely to have free wine and tea/biscuits in the lobby. Staff were super friendly and helpful. A couple of things to critique: the loo is tricky to flush (have to hold it down for 40+ seconds and... More

Nicely decorated, clean and comfortable rooms. Nice touches like complimentary wine in the lobby. The jacuzzi was great especially after our other stay in Panama city didn't even have hot water (at a hotel that cost 3 times as much). This place is certainly a great value. It is centrally located and there is a good little indian restaurant conviniently... More

The hotel is a good hotel for the price range. The location would be good in a safer city, but I felt unsafe in the area. The InterContinental is better located. If I was prepared to spend quite a bit more then I would have chosen this location. Even though the hotel is just a few streets away from the... More

We stayed at all the top hotels in the city when I travel for business but this time, we wanted to try something different and we got it right. It is very small so must come here with an open mind that it doesn't have 1000 staff around but the decor, the size of the rooms and quality of the... More

Hidden gem found on booking.com that was amazing! Warm welcome with free espresso or wine and the front desk booked all restaurants and site seeing for us. Breakfast was nothing special but filled us up. Great soaking bath with beautiful modern hotel decor. Easy transport via taxi to most sites. Walking distance to walkway on the water. Would definitely stay... More

We moved in after a dreadful stay at another boutique hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are huge, the staff extremely helpful and the location is practical to go to casco vieho. In case you need advice the staff will help you through Panama City ( places to go , how much to pay cabs ...)
