Hotel /location advice


I am interested in a hotel where I can walk to everything and. I can get the RIU or the El Panama for roughly the same price. Which one would be a better choice? Keeping in mind location and hotel quality and swimming pool? Thank you very much

What do you mean "walk to everything" - what things do you want to walk to ?

The Panama is in El Cangrejo and is close to a lot of restaurants.

The Riu is right on Calle 50 - about a kilometre from Calle Uruguay or across Calle 50 and a short walk to various restaurants between there and Via Espana - but I have no idea how easy it is to cross Calle 50 (5 lanes of solid traffic).

If you are wanting to go anywhere by taxi, be aware that the area by the Riu can get badly gridlocked. The main road in front of the Panama, too - but there are probably more options there.

I don't know what the hotels are like themselves.
