We spent two nights here, on our arrival and before we left Panama. We arranged a transfer from Tocumen after our evening arrival and then another to the Allbrook airport in the mornign where we hired a car for our vacation. Sitting on top of the hill, Cerra Ancon, the hotel is in a quiet treed area and feels like an oasis high above the hustle and bustle of the city. The rooms are small but adequate with a ceiling fan and A/C and private bathrooms. There are two balconies overlooking some trees outside where there are some bird feeders which attract some interesting birds. The breakfasts are excellent and are partly buffet style and partly served. Fruit, yoghurt, cereal and a hot egg dish cooked in the way you choose. Juice and coffee and tea and toast too. The staff are helpful and arrange transfers and taxis and will order meals to be delivered too, if you ask them. The written directions for driving to the hotel could be clearer - we got lost because exactly which lane one should be in to get onto the Cerro Ancon road was confusingly expressed.
