Had a great time in this Hotel. Room was very large. Bed was so comfortable I could not believe it. A/C worked flawlessly. Shower was awesome. The staff in the hotel was very friendly and the food (breakfast included) was great. Note: do not forget to order the amazing omelets. The only thing this hotel needs is a pool.

The first selling point about this hotel is the price. Very reasonable rates for the rooms which are comfortable, well -appointed, nicely furnished, spacious and clean. We stayed for 10 days and were fairly high up with a pretty nice view. Our room was also quiet. The hotel is located 2 blocks from the Metro which is really convenient and... More

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is well situated, near many restaurants and just a short walk to the Via Argentina metro stop. The service seemed fine, but we did not have any issues so interactions were minimal. Wifi was fast and reliable. I requested a late check out which they were willing to accommodate somewhat....

Excellent check in. Staff excellent, with a mention to William, who has provided us along our stay great & efficient answers. The room is rather standard, not decorated, the ones of those hotel chains, no particular design nor charm. The bathroom is however old, one sink with a missing sink stopper, and the shower is not so well lighted, no... More

We stayed twice - once at the beginning and once at the end of our trip to Panama in January 2016. Misiel at the front desk was such a pleasure - so hospitable and accommodating and he spoke English to us which was great since we're from Canada. He allowed us to check in early after a long overnight flight... More

What I loved about this hotel was the price! We paid approximately 70 a night which was a great price for the type of room that we had. The room was spacious and clean and had a nice flat screen TV and modern amenities. The bathroom was nice and once I figured out the shower it was great. The hotel... More
