This hotel was very close to the center of town. It was a great place to use if you're stopping over in David. I found this hotel to be very comfortable and convenient with location. The room came with a nice queen-sized bed and WiFi. The bathroom has walk-in shower with hot water. There is a restaurant onsite with drinks... More

This hotel is perfect for someone on a budget. It is clean and the staff is friendly. I recommend it highly! This hotel was utilized for a period of one week. It is extremely good value. There are many restaurants nearby. It is a good location for travelling to Boquete which I was doing all week.

The rooms have AC, TV´s and are very clean and quiet. The staff are friendly. Highly recommended if you need to stay in David. David is a very hot city and it was very welcoming to come home to a cool room with AC that worked quickly. Excellent value overall.

Most people don't go to David just for fun, but if you do need a hotel in the city, Hotel Alcala is a very nice, clean, hotel, with huge rooms, located in the centro. There's a plainly decorated restaurant with great breakfasts and a cute little bar with a very nice bartender.

After my fourth stay at the Alcala, I thought it was time to leave a review. This is the hotel I choose for my David stopovers as it is unbeatable on many fronts. - It's very close to the bus terminal - It's big and and you can usually get a room without booking first - The service is friendly...

Safe easy parking in the courtyard.. and the girl at the front desk spoke English which was a plus... More
