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

Hotel location was excellent for bars and places to eat and general transport however, this hotel is old and tired. The rooms are very basic and you could smell mould in the corridors and rooms. TV has about 8 channels, not cable as advertised but the air con and hot showers are good. Staff are not really friendly but not... More

I would not stay there again. The locaction and the roof terrace are nice. But thats it. The staff is mostly unfriendly and speaks English rarely. The worst are the breakfast waiters in the restaurant. No greeting and no smile and working slowly. When you do not speak Spanish they look around angry. The food is also not good. Eggs... More

The price was very reasonable for Panama City. I am assuming the hotel has been remolded in the last 5 years, the manager was more than helpful. The AC was cold and the room large, it was clean but not Hilton clean. For the money you cant go wrong. I booked on price line and it was $20 less then... More

Cheap hotel on a great spot, close to a lot of restaurants and in the safe richer part of the city. $5 taxi drive from Casco Viejo (but you could also walk!). We liked the pool and the view on the top of the hotel. The rooms are very spacious! The rest is very dissapointing. Staff is very unfriendly! The... More

Underwhelmed overall. The location offers a few nice evening dinner and drink choices but the hotel is dank and buckets catching drips from over head pipes will greet you as you exit the elevators. I'd take a pass. Other choices in the immediate neighborhood like the el panama.
