Someone came into my room at 2:00 am--didn't take anything or bother me--but the door closing is what awakened me. It made me notice that there are not security locks or bars on the doors something that I will take more seriously in the future. Though I like this hotel for a lot of reasons, this issue makes it impossible... More

We are a family of five and recently stayed for three nights. The location is indeed this hotel's best asset. Our opinion essentially mirrors several other reviews. We are not that particular and found the hotel adequate. The room was clean and spacious though not fancy. For us the staff were friendly enough, never mean but also not warm and... More

The room was basic but fine - you get what you pay for. The location was good - easy walking to pubs/eating; BUT, ... the staff were totally useless, disinterested, uncommunicative and operating in a world of their own. i suspect that none had ever stayed in a hotel themselves and had received no hospitality training whatsoever. They had no... More

Good location. Free breakfast is a joke, restaurant staff are the worst I've ever seen, very slow, ignored me for about 15 minutes until I approached and nicely asked for service, rude, acts like they hate their job. Food was cold, I left and went to a real restaurant. Front desk staff is not much better. Room was basic, not... More

Ideally located hotel, on walking distance from shops (Multicentro) and restaurants etc. Large rooms, nothing fancy but complete. Small pool on rooftop. Free parking (small). Staff does not speak English very well. Breakfast in simple, extra coffee at reasonable charge. Free Wifi, but not always working. Hot water may also not always work, but with temperatures in Panama that should... More

I literally was in and out in less than 5 minutes. This places is a half star hotel. Rooms are olddddd, not clean, bathrooms are a nightmare. Sorry but for the same price or less more you can find better solutions. People at lobby were very kind, the let me see the room before paying for it, because let me... More

I stayed at this hotel a few months back and wanted to write a review. The location is the reason I stayed here as there were restaurants and shopping and is a short taxi ride to downtown. The hotel is a lower cost alternative to its highend neighbors, Waldorf Astoria and Le Meridian, so enjoy your savings. The rooms were... More

We had the luck to book this hotel at a great (low) price (<€50), looking at its regular prices I would say this hotel is not worth it. This hotel is located in the vibrant area of Panama City, Calle Republica de Uruguay (or short Calle Uruguay). This location makes it easy to walk to nearly all great side seeing... More

I made reservations on this hotel's web site, the policy (and reservation email) said I could cancel up to 3 days prior to arrival date. When I went back to their site to cancel 4 hours later, within the time window, the site said "Cancellation Not Allowed." I called 3 times to cancel, the staff insist they cannot understand my...

When we arrived in Panama City on June 20th, we had not finalized our hotel. Cab driver mentioned Terranova for $90 - we knew it was one we had checked out but couldn't recall details. Since it was after 8 p.m. we said sure. Room was basic but clean, and neighbourhood had some places to walk to. Staff seemed relatively... More
