My husband and I stayed here two nights and would have stayed two more but had reservations at another place that it was too late to cancel. This place is about two blocks from Panama Bay and across the street from a hospital so many of the rooms are used by people wither needing the hospital or with family there.... More

I stayed at Residencial Cibeles for 6 nights all told during my one month in Panama. The total nights should indicate in some way my reaction to RC. It's simple, with somewhat variable room quality (check before settling in) but the staff are very nice, the location is great for access to Casco Viejo, El Parque Metropolitano and the fish... More

Although I stayed in this hotel for only one night, I have some good tips to give. First, I asked for assitence with the transportation from the airport to the hotel. They said that they would be waiting for me at the arranged time, but they weren't. If it happens to you, call the as soon as you get in... More

Good: aircon and private bath in hotel for hostel price. Room cleaning daily with towels. Bad: they didn't pick us up from airport as arranged, even after having the info center calling them to ask why. The staff are Spanish speaking and not helpful about anything that has to do with tourists including knowing where the grocery store is.the set... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the new town and the old town, so it is easy walking distance to either along the waterfront path - which is safe. The area around the hotel felt pretty safe and we didn't see any prostitutes - perhaps because it was Easter. The price for a private room with AC is... More

3 big problems: 1) there are many prostitutes lingering in the area and I suspect that they entertain the bulk of the clientele at this hotel. 2) The hotel shuttle transfer is free to the hotel and can be between $20 - 30 back to the airport, depending on which employee you speak with. 3) Record of payment was 'lost'...

This was more motel style accommodation - clean, unadorned room with a comfortable bed, cable TV, good AC, wardrobes and decent bathroom. There was a large bug in the room when we arrived but otherwise we were very happy with the cleanliness of the place. This hotel does not cater to English-speaking tourists - it is more a place where... More

I travel to enjoy the area to where i traveled. My sole concern is clean at good price. This place was both and very close to the ocean park area. The neighborhood looks a bit rough but everyone we met were friendly.

Very clean, excellent staff and location. Just two blocks to Balboa Avenue. A block from Hospital Del Nino. The Hotel is under expansion construction. I had an extended stay. I saw lots of local from the interior of the country, staying mainly for medical/hospital visits. About two blocks away there is the Zona Roja. Not an issue on the hotel... More
