This was an elegant, modern hotel when it was built, obviously in the late 70's or early 80's. It's in its "faded glory" stage now, but the rooms are nice, clean, big, great views. Food is good, prices very reasonable. Really enjoyed the room service.

Lovely big family room overlooking the waterfront and city skyline. Simple and clean. Nice pool and handy location to walk along the seafront to the fish market and old town, taxi back if your feet get tired. Staff were a bit miserable and the food wasn't great. So eat elsewhere if you can. Lots of choices in the city, many... More

I had an amazing room and view for the price I paid!! The mini bar prices were all reasonable. The AC works very well. Breakfast buffet is a great bonus and includes lots of hot and cold food. Avoid the taxis they offer you as they're overpriced... although you can negotiate.

We stayed at this hotel for a short weekend and enjoyed every minute. The staff were welcoming and gracious in particular Ms. Landau, who helped arrange our accommodations. From our room you could see the entire coastline of Panama City from Casco Viejo up to the changing lights of the Hard Rock. You could pay more and stay at the... More

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

Plaza Paitilla was perfect ! We spent three days there during our honeymoon in August 2013. it was close to shopping, made for a nice walk to Old Panama, and the hotel was very nice. 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
