Pros: Airport shuttle (for a fee) was at airport as arranged. Felt safe walking in neighborhood, which was mixed new/modern and old/rundown. Surprisingly, the bathroom had a bidet, but no electrical outlet. The free breakfast was decent. Still, we were glad we were only there for one night. Nice rooftop/pool. Cons: First impression of our room: Scary! Building was very... More

There were cockroach and other bucks in the room. The hotel is in really bad condition. People working in the hotel aren't friendly or helpfull. Even when we arrived the guy was calling and hadn't any time to explain anything or answer our questions. Even de location of the breakfast or the WiFi code were to Much to ask for.... More

When my brother shows up in the hotel they said they had no rooms and they didnt get the reservation or the lady who is in charge of the reservations is not there. I called from Belgium to explain the lady that I... More

I stayed there in July 2014 for 10 days. With breakfast included, pool on roof top, and location close to many restaurants, theater plays, bookstores, supermarkets, and any store you may need...you are not going to find a better deal. I agree with some customers on: towels could be better, breakfast is just ok with 3 options, personnel at restaurant... More

wow! where do I begin? I have never encountered an entire staff full of rude and inconsiderate incompetents in my life! It started badly and only got worse then we checked out early for anything else we could find. They wouldn't let us check in because we had our confirmation number written down and they said if it is not... More

I can really see the points in the negative reviews. The only thing is hey, they had a place for me when I tried 8 or 9 places in the area. Even my driver was out of ideas. It was economical for the best description. But nowhere to really walk to or sights in the area. Good little pizza place... More

Staff are so rude and the hotel is terribly overpriced. We booked on booking.com, saved over half. They said they didn't have our booking and when they found it wanted us to pay more. Wouldn't let us have breakfast. Room was dirty. Don't go there!!!

This hotel was dirty, the breakfast was terrible, the staff is unfriendly and unmotivated. It is really far from the city center. I am pretty sure you can find something better! In general I would advice not to choose Panama City as a holiday target, it is worth to come here only for the Canal.

Reception courteous, helpful and spoke English. Clean and comfortable room. Only one chair. View of backyards and construction, but birds and squirrels in trees. Parking in garage. We used both elevator and stairs, which were clean. Nice complimentary breakfast. Nice supper in the restaurant - enough for two seniors to share.. Computer available with internet. I sent an email from... More

I got stranded at the airport & asked a taxi driver to take me to a reasonably priced hotel. I supposedly got the last room in the place and they told me through the driver that the room was $85 because it had two beds. I was alone and said I only needed one. They gave it to me for... More
