I stayed here for 3 nights and loved everything about it! The staff are so helpful, the location can't be beat and room was verry good. It's just a short walk to the subway. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Would not even call this a hotel. They did not accept - as usual for a hotel - to pay the bill with CC at the end of the stay. It is more a well located place renting rooms. So we had to pay cash every day (or in advance, what did no like). The downside was that wen friends... More

First over the phone, they denied I even had one.They finally found it when I showed up with my reservation print out at hand. Worst than that, I had my purse and documents lost in this hotel, someone took it from there. They have not returned our calls for help, they avoided us when calling for the manager: they said...

Rooms are modern, clean and a decent size. Shower was good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Pool was small but clean. Location is good, close to many restaurant and bar options. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again if we are back in Panama City.

Good location - easy walk to restaurants and subway station. Front desk clerk, Caesar, was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and exactly as depicted in the on line photos. Beds were extremely comfortable. Excellent value for the money. SMall market and bakery 10 steps away. Another desk clerk, David assisted with printing our boarding passes. Would definitely return...

For sure this is a hotel located in an excellent area no matter if you travel on vacation or business. For the first time, I rented a car in Panama and I picked this hotel among other things because it has its own parking area within the building free of charge. Additionally, there are many restaurants in the area for... More

OK room, poor wi-fi. It's a fairly modern hotel so it should be better, along with the TV recption. Speaking of Reception, fairly icy and cold welcome at the front desk, and most of the time we ask them for assistance they were not too forthcoming and informative, and left us with the impression that we were definitely putting them...

Great location. Just off Via Argentina with 20 good to great restaurants within a block or two. Directly across the street from "PowerGym", (the best place for a workout in the city). Less than 100 yards to the new subway entrance on Via Argentina, making going to huge Albrook Mall, or the national bus terminal super fast, safe and easy.... More

It is modern, upscale and reasonably priced. It is in a great location, within minutes of the major activity center. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I found the Principe to be quiet and I had no difficulty in relaxing. I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

I got this hotel on Expedia, and glad I did. Hotel is very new. Price was $65 tax included, and it is only one long block from the great metro. Desk is very friendly and helpful. Area via Argentina is loaded with restaurants and in-and out-doors bars. Fun people-watching, and all waiters either speak a little English or can quickly... More
