Lots of glitches around the edges at this hotel. Maybe once had some frankness but invisible now. Lovely maid service. Staff tried to,help, but infrastructure not up to the game. Location is good however.

The hotel is located in a good, secure and centered area in the city. However, the service was not the best, something normal in Panama. We needed to call for clean towels several times, bed sheets were only changed few times in 10 days. Same boring breakfast every day. It does have a good pool, a plus for that hot... More

Excellent location and customer service. It is not the "best of the best"hotel, but I think it was proportional to the cost. The staff is nice and friendly; the room very clean; breakfast not good, but you find these lovely people trying to do their best at work, especially a young gentleman called Roger, and feel like at home.

I had a terrible experience in the hotel. First, the employees in reception are very slow and the reception always not fully occupied even when it's necessary. Second, when I asked for airport transportation they took 35 dollars for the drive (it's usualy cost maximum 25), the shuttle didn't come and then they found a taxi in the street and... More

A foodie's heaven just outside the hotel ala Pearl District(Portland), Melrose (LA), Midtown (ATL).Hot water, decent lobby, active center of city. Very comfortable bed. Not super quiet but ok. Dominos Pizza next door but 2 doors down there... More

Good value in the heart of Congrejo. Short walk to many resturants and the park. The staff is attentive and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Has a pool with patio area, resturant for breakfast (maybe included depending on booking).

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Was a bit concerned with the negative reviews but I did not find anything off. The staff were attentive and efficient. We asked for ice and was brought to our room within minutes. The attention to detail in the rooms is not the best perhaps but it is of the standard expected for... More

The location is great for active and secured nightlife close by: many restaurants panamanian, japanese, chinese, colombian, cuban, peruvian, etc), supermarkets closing late and 24 hrs, nightclubs. Nice swimming pool, on-site parking, on-site restaurant with excellent service. Room comfortable with basic toiletries, not soundproof.
