The area is a bit dodgy, but not as bad as Caledonia a few blocks south of it. Half an house walking distance to both the Old town in the south and the skyscraper district, 10 minutes from the seaside. Lack of atmosphere and warmth, staff friendly, rooms clean, water warm. Matress really hard, room dark and noisy due to... More

After the sunset it wasn't easy to find this hostel, because the name of it is written on the top of the street and if you are already on the right side of the street you walk threw under it can't can not read it. The entree is very dark and don't look inviting. Nonetheless the people on the reception... More

We were dubious to stay here after reading poor reviews. We stayed one night in a hostel close by and spent a long time on the internet and walking about looking at hotels. We stayed in Corona for 5 nights. Our room was on the street which was noisy in rush hour but our sleep was not interrupted. In regards... More

Location was fairly close to panama pacifico airport which was what I needed. When my booking reservation on another website fell through because of a processing error the manager still honored the discounted price. The staff at this hotel were extremely helpful with every request I had. Good Value for the money

I had to make a visa run to Panama – I live in Medellin, Colombia – and I ended up staying at the Pension Corona as the hostelworld.com place I had booked didn’t have an address. It is a long story and nobody is interested in the details. The Pension Corona is centrally located, secure and the staff are very... More

After reading previous reviews we were leery to stay here. Here's the deal. Pros; - Clean - Solid location; 3 blocks to metro, 5 to water. Not as bad as people suggest, it's safe until 9 or so as in almost all of Panama City (PC). - AC - Hot water - One of the cheapest options. Much cheaper than... More

Perfect for one night transit. Not very comfy and can get noisy, but it is clean. We chose to stay here between our flights Panama City/ Bocas Del Toro just for one night. If you just want some place cheap for a night, it's perfect. I would not recommend for a long stay. The staff does not speak English but... More

We booked Pension Corona for all the nights that we decided to stay in Panama City.The hotel is located in the middleclass neighbourhood, quite safe to walk around during the day. Four blocks from the water, walking distance from Old Panama City and downtown. A good option if you wanna a private bedroom, with a good shower and air conditioner.... More

Perfect for a weekend in Panama city, but it's nothing special. It's a clean room, a clean bathroom, a TV and WiFi. It's not cozy but it has everything you need if you don't want to spend much time in the hotel room. I have nothing to complain about.

This place was terrible. There was noise throughout the night with the internal security gate banging as punters came and left. The area felt unsafe. The only plus was the sleazy adult channels available free of charge!
