Great hotel, beautiful art collection, great service, good food, nice rooms and great products (Molton Brown). Will definitely stay and recommend this hotel for its five star service and beautiful atmosphere. The hotel is immaculate. Our room was a little dated but it was spotless. Lots of who's who in and out. The lounge on the top floor is also... More

This was the best hotel on my trip to Central America. The hotel is located close to the metro station and one can get easily to the old town. It is not the best location if you want to enjoy an evening walk nearby so I would probably look for something else for my holidays. For business travellers it is... More

Nice Hotel in the business quarter. Big rooms with internet that works well. Breakfast ok. The beds are VERY comforttable. Roomy bathroom. We travelled with a group on a roundtrip in Central Amerrica so i can't say anything about roomprice. Panama city is a very interesting city!

I was back at the Bristol last night on a return visit to Panama City. At check-in there was a problem with the key-reading units in the room and even though the rooms were ready, the keys didn't work and I had to be escorted to my room with a bellman and a master key. Otto at the front desk,... More

I was delighted with my stay at the Bristol. The concierge arranged a van to pick us up at the airport, our smiling driver was there to greet us as soon as we exited customs. Check-in was a breeze, cool towels and cold water were offered immediately. Our quiet room was spacious and very well appointed. We had a separate... More

We stayed there one night before meeting a cruise. Very stylish rooms, very clean, interesting art, pleasant staff, good breakfast and tasty snack in the lounge. No complaints of any sort, although we were there only 16 hours. It is fairly pricy, however. It was worth it for one night, but I would probably find something else cheaper if I... More

Stayed three nights at the hotel with a break after the first night. The hotel is pretty well located, though yu need a taxi for wherever you want to go (unless you walk quite a lot). The rooms are spacious and really well equipped, service is excellent and professional. Breakfast is OK, not too vast a choice, but more than... More

I stayed a night there. The good things are a classy decor, a big nice bathroom with designer bathroom amenities (Etro). The things I didn't like: The 5th floor is a place rented for parties. I was in the 7th floor and the noise was extremely loud. They change me to the 12th floor and I can't still listen to... More
