Spacious rooms, nice views either on the city (very nice view at night) or on the swimming pool. The bar and the restaurants are very nice. Helpful staff. The swimming pool is very nice. We go there every time and then, and it's always a nice experience.

This hotel is built almost entirely in solid sheets of marble. We had a room on the 7th floor that was HUGE! The corridors are enormous with a lovely breeze like a wind tunnel on your way to the rooms. There are sitting areas with leather furniture at each elevator station and in the giant open air area just before... More

El Hotel Panamá location is fabulous, the location is perfect. You are right in via Espana (street) on the heart of the city with all kind of restaurants and stores. The hotel food is excellent, the service, the casino, and the people are wonderful. Very clean rooms and restaurant. I enjoyed the breakfast. The breakfast was included in the price... More

We just got back from Panama, and stayed at the El Panama Hotel! What a mistake! The price was not cheap, and the accommodations on the eighth floor were horrible. The noise from a party that was going on the floor above us made sleeping un feasible no matter that we called front desk and asked why so much noise.... More

We stayed on April, for 3 days and we had a good time! The hotel`s room was not so new and renovated it, BUT the staff was really nice and helpful. We had good and refreshing pina coladas at the lobby and pool bar... we enjoyed our stay!

This hotel is not bad, but not special. The lobby looks good and the staff is friendly. The rooms are a little dated and uninspiring. I had one bad experience is the hotel. I checked in and had to rush out so rather than go upstairs I left my luggage in the storage locker. I returned that night and asked... More

My whole trip to Panama was not as expected. Bad weather for almost a week, dated hotel, below everage rooms and no added value. I cannot comment on the room as the only good thing was the size. All the rest was just acceptable and very regular. The breakfast was good and the staff helpful. Check in/out was slow and... More

The staff is rude and unwilling to help you or answer questions. Asking for a spoon and a coffee 4 times at the breakfast table, had no effect. Rooms are okay but waterbottles were not available in the rooms, eventhough drinking tabwater is not safe. The disco at the pool is loud and attracts locals who hang out at the... More
