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

Nice hotel, clean rooms, a pool with a great view. Very good food. Located right next to the oceanside promenade Cinta Costera. Friendly staff. We have zero complaints. Started our trip here and before we left we decided to book one more night there before our return home.

Rooms newly refurbished. Beds soooooo comfortable. Excellent breakfast - omelets made to order, selection of hot foods, cereal, pastries, fruit, cold cuts and cheeses. Found staff to be very friendly and helpful - but not too many spoke English and my Spanish is terrible, so we kept all interactions at a basic level. Hotel is situated at the start of... More

We were fortunate and had a room on the top floor (19). Room was clean and well kept during our stay. Bar service was ok, but there were very few patrons at the bar. I agree with other reviewers, walk the one block to get a taxi! You will save yourself some money. It is walkable to Casco Viejo but... More

Amazing panoramic views across the bay- request a high floor. The location is great for visiting the top designer mall with food court and to walk out along the coastal footpath to the old town, but there is no nice restaurants nearby. We were disappointed that they had no special party or meal planned for New years eve. The Staff... More

This comfortable and well-located hotel gives panoramic views of the waterfront while noshing on breakfast near the pool. We found the staff to be friendly, however the rooms need some updating and renovations. The hotel was ideal located near a great mall and near a beautiful path along the water front. We shopped in the hotel gift shop for souvenirs... More

Comfortable room overlooking the waterfront and city skyline. Simple and clean. Most ofbthe rooms have been renovated but they have a long way to improve service. Nice pool and handy location to walk along the seafront to the fish market and Casco Viejo, old town. Staff should be more polite and professional. Avoid the overpriced taxis offered at the hotel...

This is a vintage hotel in Panama city, Panama but has certainly not succumbed to the ravages of time, both inside and out it remains as if it was built recently and obviously modern as well. We had our wedding party in this hotel over a year ago as well as our wedding night stay prior to departing on our... More
