Staying at this hotel again, and thoroughly impressed with the good service and overall experience. In a time where hotels are constantly having to reinvent themselves, this place is taking charge and making their mark. This is by far the best value for money in the city!

So glad that I found this hotel online. This was exactly what I needed after a few nights in a cheap hostel in Casco Viejo. The Riande Granada offers five star amenities for a very reasonable price. It is a bargain really, if you compared it with other places. The rooms are spacious and equipped with a nice bathroom with... More

This hotel is recently redecorated with cheap, trendy , nik naks on walls. The pictures will fool you a bit. From outside looks nice, but it is an old hotel, with small rooms, and noisy at night from the noise from the outside bar outside your window, and I was on the 5th floor. Service was fine, but there are... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times. They are pet friendly which is awesome. The rooms are clean and new and everything works. There is a gym and pool and lounge area on a level up from the pool. Food is good but the service is very slow. The staff are friendly and helpful for the most part... More

We decided to say at the Riande because of the previous reviews. No other hotel in the area had such great reviews and they were right. We loved all the staff, the food and of course the pool. We stayed a week and would definitely not hesitate to stay again. Before going to Panama we were hesitant about the crime... More

I chose this hotel over similarly located and rated Toscana hotel because of the pool. I thought, hey, why not get the one with the pool. Great decision! This hotel is awesome. It's got funky art, an awesome pool, lounge deck and beer garden out back. The restaurant inside is above average, and all of the staff are great. My... More

The place looks really nice from the entrance, lobby, restaurant, and patio / pool area out back. Interesting art and a modern feel. Unfortunately the rest of the place doesn't live up to the lobby. The hallways smelled bad, but our room smelled worse. We left the windows open a lot to try to bring in fresh air but it... More

I loved this hotel! everything about it and as soon as we checked in got introduced to a great tour guide Clyde. the deco is awesome. the breakfast helped so much every morning, not your rinky-dink breakfast; fresh made omelets or scrambled eggs, pancakes, fruit, sausage and pastries. all in all great experience!
