Stayed on a Sunday night when they offered a cheaper rate...$110. Bar on the roof was still noisy as others have said...but it calmed down earlier than on other nights as others have complained. View from the bar across the bay to the city skyline is worth a visit. Food was tapas-like and good. Room was spacious. Problem with my... More

I stay only one night and i enjoy a lot. Fantastic staff, amazing view and party from the rooftop. If you want long nights sleep this is not the place, if you want to have fun this is the place to go. Very close to several restaurants and monuments in casco antiguo

I stayed here for two nights with a friend to explore Panama City. It's in the heart of Casa Viejo, which is Panama City's colonial area and a UNESCO heritage sight. Plenty of fantastic dining/drinking/(tourist) shopping is in the direct vicinity. It's a great introduction and jumping off point to the city. My general travel preference is to get around... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Tantalo for 2 nights this week. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and well-decorated. The rooftop bar has a great view, but mediocre service. As other reviewers have noted, there's a fair amount of street noise outside the hotel. However, we didn't find the staff to be particularly helpful or polite. The first real... More

Tantalo is a fun and lively restaurant with a constant energetic vibe. The food is phenomenal, the rooms are clean and spacious and the staff is very friendly. After having a poor experience with Casa Antigua, I had to find an alternative hotel to stay at in Panama City. I wanted to stay in Casco Viejo, bit most hotels were... More

This is your perfect stop when visiting Panama's old city. The restaurant on the street level is great and the people are very friendly. There is a rooftop bar with good music and the perfect place for a sunset drink.

When we first arrived to Tantalo on a Thursday night the restaurant and roof top bar was in full swing. It was exciting! The front desk staff were attentive and welcoming upon our arrival. The room we stayed in had a funky cool street art vibe. The staff were accommodating and always greeted us during our stay. The roof top... More

We travel extensively and have a good basis of comparison for outstanding versus basic, Tantalo was outstanding. Are the rooms cool? Yes. Is the food delicious? Yes. Is the bar the place to be at night? Yes. But the service... the service is simply outstanding. We emailed in advance of arriving and had a great response from Antonio at the... More

My friends and I stopped by the restaurant earlier in the day asking about if they had happy hour and was told the had 2 for 1 drinks. We returned for happy hour to find out only the local beers were 2 for 1. We waited for a long time for a $9 drink that was only half full. We... More

Me and two friends stayed here for 5-days and had a fantastic time. I love the layout of the place, the staff is very helpful and speak great English, we really felt at home here. The room was also spectacular and we were given a free upgrade given that it was off-peak. I would come back here if I were... More
