Wow...what an amazing view! We came here for cocktails at sunset and we were not disappointed. It starts to get busy around this time but we were lucky and managed to get a table. The mojitos were excellent, almost as good as the view! This bar is a must if you are visiting Panama City.

Amazing first time visit to Panama City! Travelled alone on holiday - Stayed 4 of my 7 nights at Tantalo Hotel in Casco Viejo in Room #5 (corner room) "Geo Orga" which was massive and incredibly cool vibe. I loved my corner room with the 3 huge doors and windows bathing my room with sun and tropical breezes from my... More

We went here to have a bite on the rooftop terrace and were pleasantly surprised by the vegetarian options. The portions are a bit small (count on two dishes per head), but the food tasted very well. Nice view too - overlooking both the old city and the skyscrapers.

This is a review of the downstairs lounge/bar and rooftop bar. I thoroughly enjoyed both. Service is friendly and attentive, drinks are reasonably priced (perhaps a touch on the expensive side but I imagine that comes from being a top destination in Casco Viejo). Definitely worth checking out. Note: our time at the rooftop was cut short because of an... More

Probably the best place in Panama at the moment. Everywhere from the food itself to the ambiance. It is tapas style. Great cocktails. Good for drinks at the bar upstairs as well. Great view from above.

This is a super hip, fun hotel with very friendly staff, comfy beds and overall a great vibe. I could sit in the lobby bar, snack on the delicious cocktails and listen to the great music all night!

Tantalo is freaking amazing. The rooms are all different and well decorated. The beds were comfortable. The lotion they have is great. Trust me it smells great. Showers are good.

When have you booked a hotel and been able to choose the exact room in which you wanted to stay? At Tantalo, you can. Each room is designed by a different artist, and you can choose your "theme" upon booking. Pretty cool, especially since some styles may not suit your taste. The hotel is very reasonably priced. Rooms are a... More

What I like the most about this hotel is that it welcomes both tourists and locals into the same space to interact and have a good time. The service is outstanding, the food is delicious, and so are the drinks. The hotel merges art with culture and live music, making it quite unique within the Casco Antiguo scene. If I... More
