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 Hotel rooms are just outdated and depressing but still a clean bed.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 have just stayed and both been bitten by bed bugs. I have photo evidence. Sheets had urine stains on them. They also have the distinct grey dots you will find with bed bugs. Then of course there was some blood. Both pillows and sheets were marked. Breakfast is also 2 rolls and a coffee and juice.

Room are clean and spacious (double room at the back near elevator BUT lacks the view). A/C are in good working condition (old a/c... More
