The hotel is beautiful and the staff is 5-star. But would I stay there again? No. Went to Panama on business (my boss just had to stay at this hotel), stayed a few extra days to play tourist. My overall impression is that this place is style over substance. The most gorgeous bathroom I've ever seen. The walls are paper... More

We live in Panama so when we go to the City we like to stay at the Bristol. It is usually quiet, near the places we want to visit and the staff is always very helpful. However this is the second time we have been disappointed with our stay and may be blamed partly on the time of year. They... More

From the time you enter this hotel the great smell and the aroma alone tells you that you are in the right place and that your stay is going to be great. I stayed there for eight days seven nights and enjoyed every day and night. The staff - Gustavo, Jorge, Wendy, Payal, Kathrine, Shalina, David, and Nelino, they are... More

We stayed at The Bristol for two nights on February 19 & 20, 2015. This is an excellent 5star hotel. The service was fine and the room splendid. The buffet breakfast was part of an included package. This was our best breakfast in Panama, but the coffee was just OK and where was the smoked salmon? We used the concierge... More

We stayed four nights and enjoyed a wonderful experience at the Bristol - Very helpful and courteous English-speaking staff (thank you Kathy and Wendy for the excellent concierge service!), beautiful, clean, quiet rooms with nice amenities, and speedy wifi. Located a short walk from the waterfront promenade and only $6 taxi ride to the old city (Casco Viejo). Breakfast buffet... More

The Bristol Panama hotel is well located, rooms are comfortable and well decorated the public areas are pleasant, but, Service personals are outstanding! Have to write again & again & again, when you have quality service the traveling experience gets a real upgrade. During our stay (February 11th -13th) the hotel had a rare blackout, matter that can arrive everywhere.... More
