“Just right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I stayed in this hotel during my visit to Panama City and loved it. The staff and service were all very friendly and helpful in getting around the city. There was a bit of a language barrier at times, but nothing too bad. This is a nice place to stay for just a little fun trip, in no way is it a honeymooner's hotel or anything of the sort. The whole building lacks any paintings or atmosphere. Blank white walls everywhere and also tiled floors throughout including in the rooms. This results in echoes when you talk even at a normal level. Other than that, the room was very clean and the hotel very well kept, breakfast was always very very good! Right down the road from a cool casino to go have some fun at. I would recommend staying here most definitely for the price.

I had only been in the city of Panama Connection flight somewhere I had previously. Truly know this place if it's worth, climate, friendly people and wonderful food is what identifies this place. The hotel has an amazing staff and environment in the lobby has a very good vibe.

My stay at Hotel Victoria was great. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The front desk, room service, service crew and maid service was always on point. Breakfast was pleasant and well prepared.
I am looking forward to booking with this hotel during my next trip to Panama. I felt at home at all times. The room was always extremely clean, very comfortable and quiet. I strongly recommended staying at this hotel. I will passing on this information to family and friends alike.
This hotel is conveniently located close to restaurants, all types of stores, a major supermarket, bus stops and taxi cab service is available 24/7. The workout room and swimming pool are easily accessible.
Makes the perfect setting for a family vacation.

After inadvertently charging the wrong card for my flight home on 4/28/13 and going through a week of hassle to get a credit, this hotel has now mysteriously charged me another $383.06. This was done on 5/22/13. I don't understand why this was charged to me as I pre-paid for my room and everything else at the time they accrued. I have been forced to call my credit card company to alert them of this fraudulent charge and get a new card. This is a nice hotel but their business practice is that of a con artist. I wouldn't stay at this hotel even if it was free!

We loved this hotel... My wife and I stayed from 4/22-4/25. We loved it. The Bell hop (do not remember his name) was one of the best parts, he was so helpful and every restaurant he suggested was top notch and was mentioned in all the travel books. The room was beautifully modern. Every evening we stood in the pools edge and watched the sunset as we read. My only negative was the hotel bar... dont spend your money on it, they dont know what they are doing, But over all great, what a great hotel!!!!

I recently stayed at the Victoria Hotel & Suites from April 23rd thru April 28th. The rooms were clean and the free breakfast was filling. Upon check in I gave them a credit card for any incidentals but informed them I would pay with cash or my bank card for all charges. This worked most of the trip as the tour desk provided excellent service and I paid him through the front desk.
I booked a car to the airport on my last day. At first I agreed to pay with cash. However, a driver I had never met before showed to pick me up. I told him I would pay the front desk as I didn't feel comfortable given him cash without a receipt. Mario, the person at the front desk, proceeded to check me out. He inadvertently charged my credit card. I told him that was incorrect. He then ran the credit card again for a refund. Next he charged my bank card. I left thinking everything was fine. However, I have returned home and now have a $30 charge on my credit card and bank card. I informed the Victoria of this error. The first person I spoke to at the front desk recognize the error and said she would pass it on to management who would correct it. Needless to say, management has not done anything. I have been back for a week. All management has done is said they would look into it. After numerous calls and emails this situation does not seem it will be resolved. I have resorted to calling my credit card company and letting them know of the fraudulent charges. One last note, do not stay here and expect family or friends to come visit you. They charge an extra $43 for visitors.

Our first time to Panama - the hotel amenities, staff and service at Victoria Hotel & Suites was superb.
Hotel: First class centrally located; continental breakfast was included; large clean corner suite; Wifi worked great - would stay again..
Staff: Though we did not speak Spanish front desk staff spoke English and were very knowledgeable. We took there directions and dining recommendations nightly for 4 nights and were not disappointed. Housekeeping staff were courteous & willing to make us as comfy as possible and our room was spotless. The front door/Concierge & dining staff were helpful, polite and professional.
Service: Excellent - better than some "5 stars"

Room Tip: Had corner room on 7th Floor
