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

My stay was overall nice, hotel cost included breakfast and it was very good, centrally located but little out of the busy part of the city, making walking or driving great, I bought a GPS Map from Panama-gps.com and it made my life so much easier every time I left the hotel getting back was so easy. The parking garage... More

I'll be leaving in a couple of days, after 2 months at this hotel. The room is very large and sufficiently well equipped, air conditioning, terrace with nice swimming pool. Personnel nice and perfect laundry service. Location close to subway station of Iglesia del Carmen, and to many restaurants, discos, banks, supermarkets, and much more. To be suggested for a... More

The rooms are quite spacious but the walls are dirty with cracks and holes. I got food poisoning from the breakfast and after arguing with management in broken English got a couple of bottles of water and told to get lost. The other staff act like you're a burden rather than a customer, would not recommend or stay again.

The staff do not speak any english. This hotel does not offer any facilities except a pool. At the beginning we were very happy with the room, given its size, but very fast we realised that everything was very dirty including the floor that had not been cleaned for ages. The cleaning staff was very impolite knocking the door, calling... More
