“Great Home Base while in Panama for Business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

I stayed at the Hotel Deville for 1 week on my last business trip to Panama. I was immediately impressed with the fantastic and personalized service. From the bell hop helping me check in while the reception person attended another client to the complimentary ironing of up to 2 garments, I felt very comfortable in this hotel. All the rooms are suites and while I believe mine was a standard suite, it had plenty of room with a very comfortable work table and consistently good wireless. The bed was very comfortable and while the breakfast was a little limited in its selections, there was always someone available to help with coffee and eggs any style you like. I was thoroughly impressed with Hotel Deville and will most definitely stay there again when I return to Panama on business.

Very nice hotel in the business district. Huge rooms with lovely big bathroom. The breakfast was great. The hotel is in walking distance to many restaurants. We only had one night here but would stay here again.

We had the best time, on two separate visits. Staff was MOST helpful and pleasant. Taxi service affiliated with the hotel was very reasonable and driver very friendly - we had a half day tour and then also a ride to the airport. Restaurant recommendations by them were perfect. We did have their breakfast buffet which was plentiful and yummy.

I would FOR SURE return to the Hotel De Ville when next in Panama City.

Room Tip: First floor, Theodore Roosevelt room, but #14 next door to that was also excellent, just smaller...

If you are not staying in Casco Viejo I recommend the Deville. We stayed here for one night before flying home the next morning and it was perfect. Huge rooms and bathrooms, personalized service, within walking of several restaurants. Would much rather stay here than the big boys.

This small (44-room) hotel is tucked within the financial district in Panama City and is much different from the large, international chain hotels in the neighborhood. We stayed twice in the same month and in different rooms; each was cozy and spotless. All the facilities that we used worked well, e.g. wi-fi, business center, breakfast room.

Best however is the staff. Without exception the staff were exceptionally warm and welcoming each time we arrived over the course of 10 days. Furthermore, they were uniformly very helpful whether in finding directions to a restaurant, dealing with faxing business documents overseas or thoughtfully providing a small bag of food when we had early departures before the breakfast room opened. They even volunteered to mail some postcards for us when we couldn't readily find a shop that sold postage stamps. Wonderful to find hotel staff so cordial and helpful. This hotel is a gem.
