Nice hotel in business district. Friendly helpful staff and excellent rooms. Did not eat in the restaurant in the evening, but it has a very good reputation. The only negatives were that the pool area was very neglected and not of the standard of the rest of this hotel and the 5th floor bar was always empty without any atmosphere.... More

This hotel is located in the heart of the main business district of Panama City. I describe the hotel as "quaint" because it is relatively small and extremely high quality. The rooms are large, well-equipped, and spotless. The hotel staff is, in my opinion, the best overall in any hotel that I have experienced in Panama City. If I owned... More

The Bristol Hotel in the financial district of Panama City has turned out to be a GOOD experience for our two or three day business trips. The rooms, service, food, location, etc is top. I would recommend the Bristol anytime.

Well-located upscale hotel with outstanding service all around - from Concierge to wait staff to cleaning personnel. Very good food offered in two venues. It's less expensive to get cabs on street and not from hotel. Nice spa facilities.

The Hotel was very nice and extremely comfortable. No complaints. The staff was friendly and helpful and most speak both Spanish and English. The hotel is conveniently located downtown Panama City and close to the subway system.
