Let me say that I'm a little harsh by only giving it 3 stars, however Trump Tower, Hard Rock are close by so it would be hard to give this a rating higher than those just because they are so modern and much more expensive. The Paitilla Is in a great location. You have a great view of the bay... More

The rooms are clean and recently remodeled, spacious rooms. If outside is painted, it will look new. The dinner options at the restaurant are limited. On second night, we went to the Mall which is walk-able. Nice view of the city from rooms. People are friendly and service is good.

Plaza Paitilla is adequate, and just fine for passing through Panama City. Stayed for two separate nights. Lovely view and location along the waterfront, good breakfast buffet, and pretty well equipped gym for Panama. Excellent value for the money, and very friendly staff.

I recently visited this hotel with some friends. It was clean, the staff helpful, the breakfast much better than average. I want to to specifically mention Jair Duque at the front desk. He dealt with some rather grumpy customers ahead of me, and was totally courteous and professional throughout.

The Plaza Paitilla Inn is a nice hotel, about 3.5 stars in my opinion. It has not been recently updated, but the marble lobby is nice, the breakfast is good, and there is a nice bar located in the hotel. The pool area could use some updating, but I'm not a big pool guy, so that made no difference to... More

Service was great, tasteful, and the hotel was very clean and accommodating. We asked for a nice view and got it. See pics attached. We... More

Stayed at Plaza Paitilla for 3 nights. The hotel is not the newest one, pool is so so and rooms are old-styled but still in perfect conditions and clean. I loved the view from my bed, I got a room on the last floor facing on the city-bay skyline and was just awesome as you can see from the attached... More

Stayed at this place one night. Ask for a view of the bay. Spectacular view in that direction. Breakfast was included in my rate and it was quite good. Hotel is right across the street from the multicentro shopping complex. Easy to get to other attractions in Panama City too. You get a complimentary drink when you check in. I... More

I stayed at this hotel the middle of August for a family reunion. The hotel is an older property, but there were a lot of pluses I can write about. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The view was beautiful. I attended a welcome reception and a dinner that was part of my family reunion. The hotel provided the food... More

The positive reviews were what helped us to choose this hotel, the perfect location, the cleanliness and spacious comfortable rooms, more than ample breakfast buffet, complimentary coupons for cocktails. What more could weary travellers ask for? If it is a quiet room with a door that locks do not let them give you room 306. We discovered on our last... More
