The hotel is surprisingly quiet even though it is very close to a major street. The carpet and couch are a bit dated but clean. I'm giving this hotel a 4 instead of a 5 only because of the previous statement, rooms could use a little update. Front desk, breakfast, and cleaning staff are terrific. I've stayed at a Country Inn & Suites during a visit in Panama before so I chose this hotel during this 9-day trip, not at all disappointed. I will definitely look for this chain again for my next trip.
