The hotel has a good location and it's nice, even when it's a bit old. I found the service a bit lacking, people from the hotel were innatentive to the guests, to the point of being uncomfortable a couple of times. The food was not very good and the menu is very limited. Good enough to not feel cheap, but... More

Walk all the way to Casco Viejo for drinks and food. About a three mile easy walk. Great buffet breakfast with omelette station. Shopping and casinos nearby, however beware of the casino in the Hilton! When you cash in your chips they keep out some of the money for some reason.

The hotel have seen better days. Although It's very well located, close to a mall and several fast food restaurants, it's very old and it shows it. The rooms are big the view is great (from some rooms) but the smell of mold is very much overwhelming. The carpet has a dirty appearance. There is no air conditioner on the... More

It is very well locates, but needs to modernize. Air conditioners are old and noisy. We had buffet lunch once....terrible and poor. Dinner, a la carte, was not better. The attendants at the front desk are not nice. It is clean.

This hotel has seen better days. The price was right and now I know why. It is very dated and simply worn down and the rooms, hallways show its age. The breakfast buffet was nothing remarkable. Edible at best, but again they aren't charging the same as a luxury hotel so one shouldn't expect that. You get what you pay... More

We were very pleased with the quality and value provided during our recent stay. We would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel or return to it for another stay when circumstances allow for another stay in Panama.

We weren't sure of anything going to Panama for the first time. We chose a package with a three star hotel instead of an all inclusive. Plaza Paitilla Inn was a winner! The only problem we had was that alot of them didn't speak much English and my Spanish was long gone. Otherwise, the room was nice and the breakfast... More

Centrally located hotel near Balbao and Italia Avenidas. Easy walk to the Marina and cheap Yellow Taxi ride to any attractions you might want to visit. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Not all the staff can speak even rudimentary English, but that is overcome by their willingness to please; any language barrier encountered was never a problem. The buffet... More
