Big hotel! Very friendly staff! My kingsize bedroom was spacious enough to have a couch beside the working table. Bathroom was clean and big too. Were on a so-called quite floor - and yes, it was quite. Breakfast buffet is huge and tasty. Nice neighborhood. Poolarea could be more green...

Facilities like swimming pool area, elevators and breakfast just crowded like the Panama City traffic areas. Many people and sometimes difficult to relax and enjoy, you have to dig into the crowd to get your breakfast despite the personnel is kind they... More

This is a good hotel, clean, with all necessary amenities, and good location. The hard thing is to get there! It is located on Calle 50 which is a one way street and extremely busy. Because of this, I would chose another hotel next time with easier access.

Everything tasted great and great variety of food to choose from. Visited the bar twice to watch a soccer game on the big wall tv. Nice atmosphere, enjoyed the... More

Went here for a conference and stayed through the weekend with family. They have a nice, large outdoor pool; the on-site restaurant and bar are good; and the breakfast buffet is outstanding: lots of fresh fruit and a wide selection of other choices. I recommend the hot chocolate.

Great location and service which is much better than the Meridien hotel. We didn't get the chance to experience the restaurants because there was to much fun in the Casco Viejo to miss! But we can say that breakfast service was very nice. It is in a very safe location.

The hotel room was modern and crisp. I think they can pay attention to smaller details like the shower caulking but overall I was very happy with the room overall. The shower had me confused for a bit but I managed. The restaurant food was great and they had a movie night at the lounge when I was there which... More
