This is an option in case you need to stay close to the ciudad del saber. The rooms are old and not taken care. The services are efficient (including cash advance and shuttles to Miraflores) bar food is reasonable, breakfast is just basic.

This is probably our at least 5th time staying here....probably more. We arrived today purposely almost 1 1/2 hours after check in time, only to be told the room was not ready. We didn't see hardly any vehicles in the parking lot, so guessing there were plenty of rooms that could have been ready. The guy got right on it...I...

Superb Hotel, Very friendly staff. I was immediately upgraded to a room overlooking the Panama Canal. Incredible views of the ocean liners passing through the Canal. Room was spacious with a 32in TV and all the amenities provided by the IHG group of hotels.

The hotel is located in a good spot if you want to be detached from pretty much everything. Although you can see the locks....it is not feasible to walk to them. That being said..it is conveniently located to the local bus stops. And I would truly recommend taking one of the very local buses during rush hour...if for nothing else...

It is a good hotel, however, the location is not so good. In my case, I had to go to Panamá Channel for work, so it was fine. You need to rent a car, taxi, or Uber to move around. Even for lunch or dinner, you have no choice: Hotel restaurant.

We visited this hotel firstly as part of an exodus tour group and then remained an extra three nights as a couple. Our stay got off to a terrible start in that our first group meal was a disaster.

Just off the Miraflores locks a little lonely, not much to do without a car. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms, comfy bed and good shower. Small pool. Non smoking hotel like all hotels in Panama. Small bar and good food at reasonable prices. Take a room with even numbers for Canal view
