4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Upon checking in at Tantalo we were immediately welcomed by the staff at the desk. They were able to check us in early as we arrived around 1pm which was great. The vibe is great, lots of color, fun music and great layout. The rooms are all designed by local artists and we had a balcony that offered views of... More

Charming small boutique hotel with a fabulous rooftop bar and restaurant in historic district of Panama City. Our rooms were really comfortable with lovely balconies. I lioved everything about this hotel and would stay again, but with ear plugs. The music on the rooftop lounge goes on into the wee hours of the morning and is pretty loud. Having said... More

Breakfast, rooftop bar and staff all amazing. Always enjoyed coming here :) The atmosphere is nice, chill in the morning and party in the night. I have never stayed a night here but if you are in casco viejo this is the place to visit

We decided to get a drink at the rooftop bar and we were not disappointed! Good service and a nice view over Panama city! The cocktails are nice and the price is okay. 7 dollar for a cocktail and 3,5 for a local bear (take balbao). If you want to eat here to, don't forget to make a reservation because... More

If you are headed to Panama City, look no further than Tantalo! I was traveling on a girls trip for a short visit and found this gem on TripAdvisor. Otto met me at the reception desk and gave me a choice of 2 rooms. I chose #11 with 3 balconies, a wet bar, and lots of space. We loved the... More

I wasn't at all surprised by our recent stay at Tantalo. This is NOT a hotel. This is a restaurant bar, rooftop bar, party place that happens to have rooms available for rent. My wife and I were lucky to have missed our flight out of Colombia, so our Saturday arrival became a Sunday arrival. HOW LUCKY WE WERE!!! The... More

We stayed here on our first night in Panama before going to Bocas del Toro. The location in Casca Viejo is phenomonal! The staff was extremely helpful and professional - arranging an early morning can and even sending us off with breakfast since we had to leave for the airport before breakfast service started. The room was very spacious with... More

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The food was wonderful and they set the bar in service. Everyone on staff from the front desk to the bartenders to the wait staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

I invited a group of 12 here for dinner and then drinks on the roof. Service was great, food was good, and after dinner, we went up to the roof for some drinks with a nice view of the city. We all left impressed.
