The Bristol has once again rose to the occasion and surpassed all of my expectations. The friendly staff as well as the cleanliness throughout the hotel was outstanding. Its nice to be greeted with warm smile and helping hand at the front desk and concierge. I continue to be extremely satisfied on all fronts.

Fantastic room with modern and luxurious room. The bathroom was enormous and the WiFi fast. The breakfast buffet was top quality and the staff always attentive. Nice location near Calle 50 and Uruguay for dining options. I was very impressed with this property and the hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. Would absolutely stay here again.

My son and I went to Panama on business. My lawyer set up our hotel reservations, and I'm glad he did. The location is right in the heart of the city, surrounded by highrises, restaurants, casinos, a mall within walking distance. The guards and doormen immediately started looking after us when we got out of the taxi. We arrived at... More

We sat down at the 8.58 Restaurant Bar. Nice ambiance. No service. A young waiter (name withheld out of basic human kindness) took our order. One small pizza, two salads. 45 minutes later no pizza; no salads. The young waiter kept saying: "it's on the way". The place was 2/3 empty. He also said the kitchen was busy. The place... More
