Excelent hotel for you to take as an HQ to travel the rest of the city and its surroundings. It is centric and very close to the metro station which is definitely a plus. Breakfast was nice and the bed was comfortable.

Well finally I cancelled. Thanks to the receptionist. Picture and location looked great, but the picture showing the best time of the hotel couple of years ago. Being there seeing heavy construction work/ renovation going on. Wifi on/ off, elevator off. I did not feel to spend my time there. But situation may change fast, after renovation.

If the good service and super value that you get from the restaurant is any hint, this hotel is a sure bet. Built in the 80s with a long running operation this hotel has a good record of affordable service. The restaurant albeit looking like a throwback to the best of the late 20th century its good service and value... More

Dear Lt. Freck, We are delighted to hear that you had such an enjoyable experience at our beloved hotel. We are flattered that you felt our property is younger then it is (it was built in 1969 by my Father and his Father), but she has aged gracefully.

With the explosion of new hotels arriving on the scene this mid to large size establishment remains an icon in the sprawling city of Panama.

My experience in the Executive hotel was truly amazing. Needed a place to stay since in town for a friend's wedding and stumbled across this comfy accommodation. This place satisfied all my needs and much more. Reasonably priced, the rooms are welcoming with clean sheets, towels, toiletries, refrigerator with bottled water, safe, flat screen TV with cable and balcony. Very... More

I've stayed at another hotel while in the city for several years. That property has continually gone downhill so we opted for the Executive as an alternative. Let me start by saying that breakfast is included in the room charge and several cuts above the average breakfast you'll find in Panama. If you're inclined you can have espresso or a... More

The Executive Hotel provides great value for money. Breakfast came with the room and it was comparable to more expensive hotels in Montreal, and Bogota. The room itself was spacious and clean. However, the room was dated and bathroom tiny. Also the walls of the room was very thin, you can hear the flushing of the toilet in the next... More

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.
