Fairly priced. Mediocre rooms. Amenities: 1 bar of (cheap) soap. Ripped and ragged towels. No A/C control. Good (hot and cold) water pressure in the shower. At night, you can hear everything from the rooms next to yours; even the scratching of the cheap sheets when your neighbor moves in the bed. My neighbor snored, so - as you can... More

fair value for money; good central position and not expensive; rooms fairly clean although bathrooms could use improvements (towels, soaps, shampoos etc); TV sets and channels below average; no breakfast room service; AC clean but a bit noisy

WIFE AND I stayed here on our return from COSTA RICA. Not really knowing hotels in the area we chose this one. Very nice and clean. Hotel offers restaurant, car rental, hot water. Wi-Fi ,the town is small, but shops in the area are in walking distance. The hotel staff and manager are more than courteous, and willing to please.... More

The room was clean. The three beds in the room were comfortable. The A/C worked fine. The hot water shower was also a welcome treat. We had the grilled chicken dinner at the restaurant next door...delicious. This hotel is way down on our list as far as nice places to stay. But what can you expect for $35 a night... More

I was in the area 3 nights for work and this hotel was perfect. Basic with no frills, but everything worked well (wifi, cable, hot water, A/C), it was clean and comfortable, the restaurant downstairs is quite decent and not too pricey, and the hotel itself is safe and decently priced. What else could I ask for? Thanks!

I've been to Changuinola 6 times over the last 7 years. There aren't many hotels to choose from, but SemiRami is probably the best. The rooms are clean and they have reliable water which can be an issue in Changuinola. The hotel is located near a supermarket, several restaurants and various shops. Be sure to check out the local Kuna... More

Stop over on our way to Almirante. Super close to airport less than five minutes. Convenient restaurant on first floor with very good selections. Service with a smile. Friendly saff, clean rooms and bath with shower. Tv and Internet . Simple not pretentious and a 30.00 room fare. Several area restaurants open early for breakfast. ATM machine accessible within steps... More

This hotel was fine. Nothing exciting, but there isn't much of exceitement in Changuinola. The room was simple, but spotlessly clean. The AC worked. The beds were comfortable. The water was hot. We felt very secure. The front desk staff were very friendly - they don't speak English though. The cost of $35 for 2 adults and 2 kids was... More

We had to take the ferry in Almirante to go to Bocas del Toro. This ferry only leaves in the morning, so we needed a place to stay overnight. Apparently the best thing to do is to go to Changuinola instead of trying to find a hotel in Almirante. Changuinola is a 20 minutes drive from Almirante in the direction... More
