Firstly, I would like to mention that I travel a lot and have seen good and bad hotels. However, what I saw in this hotel was very poor and I feel that it is necessary to warn everyone who sees the pictures and thinks, oh well looks nice and cheap. Let me beginn, I traveled last week to Panama with... More

Let's starts with the positives: - Nice staff, don't speak English but are very welcoming with big smiles. - free coffee - free Wifi The Negatives: - Every things seems not to be finished, kinda like when you do some DIY and not level the door properly or put back the plug screws - you can hear other guests in...

Great location - in a cheaper neighborhood, but smart and walking distance to Casco Viejo. The cheapest rooms do not have windows and our room had cockroaches!! I still rate this average for price, friendly and helpful staff, and location. Other than cockroaches, cleanliness was fine, hot water and controllable AC. Receptionist was accommodating and helped us book a tour... More

Generally, this is a very good budget option. It has "smart" location as it's just on the border of the cheap quarter and close to the nice and safe promenade. It's on walking distance to the old city Casco Viejo, but also close to metro and modern city. From the bus main terminal, taxi charged us 8$, but it's less... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights and would have stayed two more but had reservations at another place that it was too late to cancel. This place is about two blocks from Panama Bay and across the street from a hospital so many of the rooms are used by people wither needing the hospital or with family there.... More

I stayed at Residencial Cibeles for 6 nights all told during my one month in Panama. The total nights should indicate in some way my reaction to RC. It's simple, with somewhat variable room quality (check before settling in) but the staff are very nice, the location is great for access to Casco Viejo, El Parque Metropolitano and the fish...

Although I stayed in this hotel for only one night, I have some good tips to give. First, I asked for assitence with the transportation from the airport to the hotel. They said that they would be waiting for me at the arranged time, but they weren't. If it happens to you, call the as soon as you get in... More

Good: aircon and private bath in hotel for hostel price. Room cleaning daily with towels. Bad: they didn't pick us up from airport as arranged, even after having the info center calling them to ask why. The staff are Spanish speaking and not helpful about anything that has to do with tourists including knowing where the grocery store is.the set... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the new town and the old town, so it is easy walking distance to either along the waterfront path - which is safe. The area around the hotel felt pretty safe and we didn't see any prostitutes - perhaps because it was Easter. The price for a private room with AC is... More
