We stayed one night while traveling to Boquete. The hotel is great for stopping in David overnight. Rooms are clean, comfortable, safe, and has an attached restaurant. Within blocks of the bus terminal.

I had just spent 3 nights at the Country Inn & Suites over looking the beautiful pool and water leading into the Panama Canal, with walking and jogging path right behind the property. I wanted to visit Boquete. And decided to stay in David and take the 45 minute bus ride to and from these 2 cities for $1.75. I... More

Brilliant to stay fora night e.g. if you are on the move from panama city to bocas. David s a bustling small town (at least it was on a sunday morning), but nothing really special to stay longer. the bus terminal is very close (about 5 min. on foot), but still check the map before you get there.

I've stayed here at least 10 times. While not the most luxurious, it is very clean and reasonably priced. Most of the staff has been very friendly with me....a few going above and beyond to take care of my needs. I don't speak Spanish very well so sometimes have a little fun at the front desk but they are pretty... More

This hotel is worth every penny! We only stayed here one night but found the front desk staff very friendly (although bring your Google Translate app if you don't speak Spanish). The room was somewhat spartan but very clean. Air conditioning worked fine and was really needed on the hot day we arrived there. Wi-fi worked well. The bed was... More

This hotel is only a few blocks from the bus station and a few blocks from the Central Park. It's close to shopping and many restaurants. Our room was basic with cold a/c and hot water. The flat screen TV was a nice addition. The front desk ladies were very sweet although only one spoke English. The on-site restaurant was... More

Hotel Alcala get high marks from me for large, clean rooms, helpful staff and indoor parking. We ended our Panama trip with a week in David at the Hotel Alcala. One of the nicer places we’ve stayed and the town feels safe. The tiled rooms are huge, the two double beds are comfortable, the large shower never runs out of... More

Hotel Alcala is a very good hotel bargain. It was a blessing after the long drive from Chitre to David. The government is adding more lanes to the main highway and the trip can take up to 4 1/2 hours. When we got to the hotel it was raining hard; we were pleasantly surprised because the hotel has indoor parking... More
