I have stayed at Hotel Puerta del Sol three times in the past 2 months and each time has been different. The first stay was fine. The elevator was out of order unfortunately, so I had to walk to the 3rd (Panamanian - 4th American) floor - but at least a bellman took my bag up for me. Once up... More

This is a great hotel for the money. I paid $42. The room was very clean, comfortable enough bed, hotel had an elevator and underground parking. A/C worked well-mine wasn't loud. I was in an interior room-nice and quiet. Great location-city park is just down the street. Hotel has a restaurant and a computer room. Wifi in the rooms included... More

David is interesting to see briefly; the traffic is an experience, but it's worth persevering to get around and the big shops off the Interamericana highway are worth visiting if stocking up on goods. This is a great hotel, very central, easy access to Interamericana and road to airport and near the central park which is a good spot for... More

We scheduled three days of our trip in David, getting to know our way around and this hotel suited us very well. It isn't new, but it is kept in immaculate condition and if you ask for a quiet room they can provide it. There are some obvious improvements that the hotel could make, including making sure that rooms have... More

This hotel has an excellent vibe in spite of looking pretty old from the outside. The desk staff does speak a little English and I had fun practicing my Spanish. If you are forced to spend a night or several in David, Panama and want a hotel in this price range it is a reasonable choice. The AC worked well... More

My first night my room was above the kitchen and I heard noise until after 10 PM. Also, there was almost no water pressure in the bathroom probably from use in kitchen. The next morning I changed to a front junior sweet. There was good water pressure in the bathroom but I had other issues. The room faces a new... More

We booked a junior suite for $65 a night, a good deal. The hotel doesn't look like much on the outside, but our room was comfortable--nothing fancy, but it was adequate. The location was central. The staff was efficient and friendly. As others have noted, this hotel is a good value.

I stayed at this hotel only because they were nice enough to open an extra secure parking area to accommodate my utility trailer being used to haul some boat motors. The staff were courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean, fresh, and the AC worked great. For the value, you can't beat this hotel and I highly recommend it.

This was my first hotel in Panama and it was simple, nice, vety clean and in the middle of the city of David. You can reach everything just in walking distance and if you need a taxi it's very cheap. Puerta del Sol is one block from the Central Park and the recpetion staff all speak English. The rooms are... More

This David stop over for me is ideal being near the town square and local feel. I stay here about once a year and am always greeted with a home town feeling. The rooms are small, clean, and comfortable.
