Perfect for one night transit. Not very comfy and can get noisy, but it is clean. We chose to stay here between our flights Panama City/ Bocas Del Toro just for one night. If you just want some place cheap for a night, it's perfect. I would not recommend for a long stay. The staff does not speak English but... More

We booked Pension Corona for all the nights that we decided to stay in Panama City.The hotel is located in the middleclass neighbourhood, quite safe to walk around during the day. Four blocks from the water, walking distance from Old Panama City and downtown. A good option if you wanna a private bedroom, with a good shower and air conditioner.... More

Perfect for a weekend in Panama city, but it's nothing special. It's a clean room, a clean bathroom, a TV and WiFi. It's not cozy but it has everything you need if you don't want to spend much time in the hotel room. I have nothing to complain about.

This place was terrible. There was noise throughout the night with the internal security gate banging as punters came and left. The area felt unsafe. The only plus was the sleazy adult channels available free of charge!

The room and bathroom were both extremely clean. The room had air con, TV with cable (including a few English channels) and the internet connection worked well. We were also provided with towels, soap and shampoo. However, the mattress on the bed was thin and very hard and the hotel was extremely noisy! We had just one small window which... More

While the room was clean, the bullet proof window, porn on the channel selection, and late-arriving suitcase-less guests all indicated that the place might moonlight as a short stay motel. We were glad we were only staying a few hours between flights. The room had no towels or toilet paper, so bring your own. Bottled water costs two dollars which... More

Although the rooms are sufficiently large and the bath is exceptionally large and clean, the bed was extremely hard, and the noise from the street was excessive. The TV carries maybe 20 or so stations, but only 1 or 2 in English, if that matters. The AC cools quickly. Bring earplugs.

The hotel is good value. For only $37 / night, you get a clean room with A/C a great private shower and eve n a TV. Sure its not a perfect location, but its still only a $2-$3 cab ride to either Casco Veijo or the Financial District. The Internet is slow and would occasionally drop for several minutes at... More

This clean, basic hotel is just what the traveler passing through Panama City is looking for. It is very clean and comfortable, with TV & free WiFi. It's located within a $2 taxi ride to the Albrook Bus Terminal-- a real plus. Don't expect a glamorous, fancy place-- you get pretty much exactly what you pay for with no nasty... More
