I would recommend hotel Riu Plaza Panama. Good room, great service, excellent location, located at the heart of a business district. In would definitely come back here on my next visit to Panama City. Fitness center was only ok though. Food good.

We are Deaf couple. We wish some of the front desk knew Sign Language. But it was so good service. The breakfast was the best ever since I stayed in different hotels. Good warm foods and cold foods. Perfect service!!! God bless you.

My experience at the Rui was absolutely incredible, I had a wonderful time. I received excellent service, the hospitality was absolutely fantastic. Great location and very accessible to lots of places, I traveled within a three-mile radius by taxi for under $3.00.
