I was in Panama for a week vacation. I reserved this hotel 2 months in advance on Orbitz for $78.00 day. I checked on Orbitz 2 weeks before my trip & price had increased to $108.00 so always book early. This hotel is right smack in middle of downtown with Habanos Cafe & Beirut Restaurant just one block away. There is also a Supermarket Rey to stock up on groceries only a couple blocks away. The hotel has a restaurant, bar, gym & a small swimming pool that I never saw anyone in. I did not have the breakfast buffet because I do not want to eat that much but did order the $7.00 fruit plate. I was just expecting waiter to fill plate with fruit from the buffet but they actually peeled all the papaya, pineapple, watermelon, etc fresh and best fruit I have had in awhile. The rooms are quite large with two double beds. The front desk was nice enough to give me the pool facing room, the street facing rooms can be noisy from all the taxis honking horns. The rooms were large & clean with flat screen TV & refrigerator, there is no microwave. The shower has a huge place size shower head which was really nice. The water does not get super hot so could not soak in a bath but hot enough for showers. All the staff is friendly of course. The BEST thing about this hotel is that the walls & floors are very thick...I did not hear the guests in the other rooms AT ALL! There is nothing worse than hearing the next room TV, talking, kids running, snoring, etc. This hotel is a regular hotel for business travelers from other countries such as Brazil , India, etc as I saw a lot of businessmen in suits & spoke to a few. One taxi driver told me this is considered one of the 5 star hotels along with the Marriott & Riande Luxury. I saw a placard on front desk showing room rates from $250.00 to $500.00. I asked are these normal rates & he said it is. You also get free WiFi (ask front desk for WiFi code) & there is business center with 8 free desktops with internet access. There is also hotel drivers but will cost you double what regular cab charges but the cars are new and air conditioned compared to the cabs. Overall a great place for the price I paid.
