“nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

this hotel is new and pretty. i feel that its a very business oriented hotel, so if u r looking for charming hotel, then this might not be for you. however, everything works perfectly. breakfast was nice. i had dinner at the restaurant and that was also nice.
the concierge was very helpful and all the staffs are friendly.
it is however, a taxi ride away from almost anything. but apart from that, i would gladly stay here again.

Well-located upscale hotel with outstanding service all around - from Concierge to wait staff to cleaning personnel. Very good food offered in two venues. It's less expensive to get cabs on street and not from hotel. Nice spa facilities.

Room Tip: Rooms are spacious and comfortable - wherever you end up!

The Hotel was very nice and extremely comfortable. No complaints. The staff was friendly and helpful and most speak both Spanish and English. The hotel is conveniently located downtown Panama City and close to the subway system.

My family stayed at Bristol for our wedding this past March (2015). I was nervous for my family visiting Panama and staying somewhere I had not yet been. However, I was quickly put at ease with the treatment we all received at Bristol. All staff were bilingual (my family speaks English) and incredibly helpful throughout their stay. The Bristol staff and management serve as an example of how customer service should be. Everyone was treated like royalty and truly made our stay even more memorable. I can say without hesitation that I would recommend Bristol to anyone visiting Panama and I will certainly be back for a visit (or at least to sample the ceviches again!).

The Bristol and its staff are amongst the best in the Hotel industry without a doubt.

I travel extensively for work and I stay in 5 start hotels frequently.

The Bristol in Panama is far and away my favourite.

So much so that I tend to compare other hotels against it.

Thanks to the Bristol team for another memorable stay and I look forward to my return

From being greeted on arrival with cold water and cool, refreshing wash cloths to the sweet treats waiting for us when we returned from the pool and the turn down service (which included freshening up the bathroom), the staff at this hotel goes above and beyond to meet and exceed every one of your needs.

The buffet breakfast is exceptional and worth the additional cost if not already included in the cost of your room.

We will definitely stay here again
