Reasonably clean but old. We stayed 1 night. Didn't use the restaurant, went out to eat. Receptionist was cranky. Cold atmosphere. I would suggest keep looking. Wi-if was sketchy. We found a good sushi bar very close by.

We chose this hotel because it was supposed to have an airport shuttle. It doesn't, but the receptionist at the front desk was helpful by informing us what the taxis should cost. The room was much smaller than expected, the furnishings old but adequate. Our room had a small balcony that we could stand on. There were no chairs on... More

This hotel is centrally located. There are casinos, restaurants, supermarkets and banks all within walking distance of the hotel. For the price they include free WI-FI, free breakfast (must get the chip downstairs at 7:00am). Please understand the breakfast is very basic (Eggs, toast, juice or coffee), but at least it is provided. The rooms are air conditioned and have... More

This is rather basic. Just a not-new building with clean rooms, a bed and a somewhat attractive room (I like that it has the wood look of a Panama I remember from when I lived here when I was a toddler), but it's better than some of the other 2 or 3 stars in Panama City. Also, it's a bit... More

I stay in this hotel twice a year and have found it to be clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, and possessed of helpful courteous staff. Sadly, my Spanish is limited, so I cannot communicate as well, as I would like (yeah, yeah, I'm working on this, so as to not become 'An Ugly American'. I have never had an issue with... More

Update: Located right next to the Milan in the Cangrejo district, this hotel is old school. Rates are lower than the Milan with breakfast included...BUT...for that you do have some drawbacks (thus the update). You MUST check your room before you sign on the dotted line. Airconditioners vary as do what comes with the room. Some now have refrigerators, some... More

This Hotel is very nicely situated in the center of the capital. If is very good hub to plan your vacation or trip in the city. It is within few miles from all major attractions. The hotel itself is very basic. But it is clean and cheap, so you get a good value for your money. The staff is very... More

Stayed for 3 nights in June. Nothing new since my last review, still more than adequate and an excellent value. Great location, clean, quiet rooms, excellent service, good restaurant. However, my new favorite hotel in Panama City is the Milan, just a few hundred feet from the El Parador, about $3 per night more, and a much more upscale hotel.

Most depressing hotel of the year. On the plus side, the hotel is well-located, clean, the (unappetizing) rooftop pool is open 24 hrs, and the wifi works. On the down sides, "YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED VISITORS IN YOUR ROOM" is the first sign that will meet you at reception. I hate this and dont see why an adult should be... More
