We stayed at the Executive for four nights, following five nights at the Hard Rock Hotel. We knew it was going to be a different experience. The location was terrific. We could walk many places, or catch a taxi. The taxis at the hotel were more expensive than the street taxis, but the staff helped us catch the street taxis... More

The Executive hotel was one of the cheapest we booked on our current trip, so we were prepared for a certain degree of give and take. When we arrived we were somewhat apprehensive, based on what we thought was a deserted area of the city. However, this was only because of a national holiday and the area proved not to... More

Hi all-- 1st let me say that I have been lucky enough to have travled to many places all over the world, including Cent Am. Here's the truth--just got back from this city-last night.

The staff is very friendly, which is not always the case in Panama. The rooms are clean and uninspiring. The location is great and very close to all the banks and many of the good restaurants. The café in the hotel is quite good and average, if you get my meaning. Most of the walls and hallways are white to... More

I have traveled to Panama City several times over the years and love this place. Great location reasonable price. It looks like it has not been updated since the 80s but that is ok. When traveling to Panama you are there to see the sights not sit at the hotel. Easy to get to and plenty of places to get... More

Stay only if you are looking to save money...otherwise you will be better off somewhere else. The truth is it is a practical hotel, more or less clean, wireless internet works and there is a bed...but if you are used to staying at three or more stars hotels this is not it. Staff is OK, night time fella could very... More

I wished I could give this hotel a better review, but the shortcomings are just too many. On the positive side, it is well located, clean, good sized flat screen TV and definitely good enough for the spartan mindset. It is not a bad value choice compared to the neighboring alternatives. But the placed is badly needing updating. Furniture is... More

We stayed at the Executive Hotel for six days while visiting Panama City on vacation. The room was small but clean and everything worked although the air conditioning unit was a little on the noisy side.

On Sunday we enjoy brunch at different restaurants and or hotel restaurants. A recent brunch at the Executive hotel was one of the best! In a pleasant atmosphere, it appeared there were many Panamanian families dining. We did not have the breakfast buffet but rather ordered from the menu. I had the Heuvos a la Ranchero.
