Free pickup from airport or bus terminal, free simple breakfast with coffee, free wifi in rooms, hot water, air conditioning, flat screen cable TV, fridge in the room. At $40.00 per night it's a great deal especially if you want your privacy. Our only complaint is that the lighting in the room is very dim so it is impossible to... More

stayed 8 nights, will definitely stay again next trip to Panama City. Not 5 star hotel, maybe not even one star, but spotless, friendly, easily accesible, free airport transport, both ways, free breakfast, basic, eggs, etc. The downsides are: Coffee in restaurant so weak, I had to add instant to strengthen it. Vegetarians, forget it! I brought my own granola... More

Nothing great, but nothing horrible. For two of us, the price of $40/night was comparable to getting a private room at a hostel, and this place actually had rooms available with only a couple of days notice. Room was basic and seemed generally clean. Everything is a bit old and worn, but for exhausted, hot, budget travelers were were fine.... More

I stayed here 3 nights, and would stay here again. Good: The front desk staff were friendly, the AC was nice and cold, and I loved the view of the city streets from my 4th floor room. My parents' 4th floor room has a slight view of the ocean. The shuttle was about 20 min late picking me up at... More

Went to Panama City by bus. Arranged with hotel to be picked up by "free shuttle". When they weren't there, I called the hotel and the receptionist told me to get a cab. The only reason we chose this place was the shuttle. We arrive at the hotel to find a small basic room (not really a problem) but the... More

I was very happy with my one-night stay at Hotel marparaiso. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant was good - not great. They did provide transportation from the airport for an extra $15 (cheap)

I stayed here for quite a few nights over the last month. The reception girls were friends and maids did a good job. Hotel rooms are just outdated and depressing but still a clean bed. Overpowering smell of mothballs. Restaurant is decent for meals but breakfast included is just scrambled eggs and rolls

$40 for ac room, clean and simple but hot water was only just warmer than the cold! Location was alright, area is safe but a taxi ride from most touristy places. Continental breakfast is scrambled eggs and bread rolls.

We were leaving the country, we payd 10 dollar eah to go to Tocumen airport, but this price is only 7 am and 3... More
