My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights through my timeshare properties.
Big point for me: the people were really great. There were only a couple of people there who spoke English, which was fine. One of them worked at the front desk, and she would call other places for us to make reservations to do things (i.e. tours of Monkey Island in Gamboa) and tell us where we could go to find certain things to do in the area. She was very helpful and friendly.
The restaurant/bar is open until 11pm daily - the food is good and the staff is great. There is free (unsecured) wifi in the lobby, which we found also works in the restaurant, at least near the entrance.
For the area around the hotel in general, it's not in a great part of town, but the hotel itself and the grounds are relatively secure with a gate in front. However, the location isn't bad for exploring the east side of Panama. From there, we were able to make day trips to the Smithsonian Institute down on Isle de Flamenco (highly recommended), the Panama Canal (Miraflores Locks), and to the Gamboa Rainforest Resort - they have tours to Monkey Island and an aerial tram through the rainforest.
The room was very clean, although lacking in deep-cleaning, as pointed out by other reviewers, as there was mold in the tile grout. It really wasn't a big deal, particularly if you keep in mind that this is a very humid place in the rainforest. We also would get little, tiny "sugar/water" ants if we left out anything with sugar in it (tiny bits of granola bar on the floor, juice spilled on the counter, etc. Also, not a big deal since we learned early to not leave out anything.
Overall, this was a nice place to stay, and we would stay here again if we wanted to be in this area for a couple of nights. We left a day early, because we wanted to explore the beach areas west of the Canal - otherwise, we would have stayed the entire 7 days.
