    I stayed here for only one night. The hotel looks good from the outside and view of the sea was nice. But when i entered the room, there were dirt on the floor and the toilet was not cleaned enough. The foods on the restaurant took a very long time to prepare. On the bright side, the wifi was all...

    Colon must be where Neil Young wrote "Keep on Rocking in the Free world". Took a taxi from the Cruise Terminal. Colon is like the old Havana with attitude. 10 times worse than Harlem in the 60's. It is definitely edgy and decrepit -which is eye opening. Never have I seen so much street litter and rubbish. We could see... More

    Our stay was short. We checked in at 11:30 am and out at 4pm.... Same day. We spent the afternoon having lunch in the hotel's restaurant, walking the grounds to view its crumbling facade, and interior public space. The Spectacle of canal shipping moving past its waterfront is quite impressive. Amazingly, there's a grounded vessel resting alongside the hotels sea... More

    I would not recommend this place to anyone. We stayed 1 night as we were curious to see colon and we couldn't wait to leave. The lobby showed traces of its old glory but rooms and the grounds were sadly in disrepair. You just don't feel safe or comfortable here, it's not a nice environment.

    We did not actually stay here, just called in for a beer. However that experience was enough to convince me never to stay. There was no proper bar so we asked for the beers at Reception. The staff were some of the rudest we have met, sullen and resentful. However the deciding factor was the ladies' toilets. There were 3... More

    The outside of the hotel allured me into staying. I was very disappointed. The building is amazing though I wished I had stayed somewhere else and made a visit to see the hotel. The rooms are very shoddy and not very clean (rust on the fixtures in the bathroom, holes in the walls from installing cable - not patched, some... More

The building is very beautiful, but need a very urgent restaurauration! this could be one of the most beautiful heritage hotels in the... More

    One way or another, it´s nice to stay in old hotels, even when they have known better days. The setting couldn´t be better (with views on the ships on their way to the Canal), you can use the pool and the rooms are OK (however, you can tell that the bathroom wasn´t a very important room during the glory days...
