We took advantage of excellent weekend low rates on Trivago. So we experienced luxury hotel accommodation at budget prices! Loved our big room, luxury extras and the outrageously comfortable bed. We took advantage of a hotel with a large bathtub for bubbles galore. Hotel is in a good central location to explore from, I'm sure in a few years when... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bristol Panama, but had some issues upon checking out and paying our bill. We had stayed 1 night on various occasions, but this time we spent 5 nights and had two connecting rooms. Checking out at the Bristol Hotel was difficult. They did not have my account very clear, stating that I had already... More

We booked online and were quite surprised how much nicer and luxurious the hotel was compared to the online photos. We loved the large spacious rooms, detail to luxury, extra service and super friendly and helpful staff. The location was perfect as we could walk to all the places we needed - even down to Avenue Balboa. I would highly... More

After enjoying the mountains and beaches, we ended our Panama vacation at the Bristol Panama. The hotel was lovely, the staff excellent. They helped us make dinner reservations and when one our planned partial transit of the Canal excursion was cancelled by the Canal Authority at the last minute, they helped book an alternative excursion. Thank you all

I arrived Panama City late, went to dinner checked into the Bristol about 11 pm and left in the morning at around 5 am, but I got a good feel for how great a hotel this is. Very good service, coffee and juice with wake upp call in the wee hours of the morning, big rooms.

The staff really made our stay...They could not do enough for us during our stay and were always eager to help. We rented a Tower Suite and I would definitely recommend. It was very spacious with a huge bathroom and large closet as well. I will definitely return to this hotel on our next visit to Panama.
