Excellent hotel,,i booked just for a quick stay from advice of a friend who lives in another province. Perfect price, clean,,everything working fine. I was only here about 8hrs,killing time between flights,,but found this area amazing,,felt perfectly safe,,food options galore within walking distance. I was also very delightfully met a the beautiful receptionist, she helped me become familiar with all the dinner options available,,special thanks to her😊. Im planning on adding more time between flights next trip to experience the area more,,I'll definitely book the Saba.

The room was overall OK. It was large and clean, but dark with very little natural light. Unfortunately, I found the staff to be so rude and disrespectful that I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone. For the money, you can find much better accomodations, and I highly recommend that you do so.

The hotel is basically fine, rooms are large and clean. There’s some weird aspects to the place though. Housekeeping was somewhat haphazard - the glasses in our room weren’t clean, we had to ask for towels (three times) the trash wasn’t emptied. We also were disappointed that they did not offer check-in until 3pm. (Also, if you are, as my wife says, ‘idiot Americans like us’ you should be aware that most of the staff does not speak any English)

I had advised the hotel that I would arrive at 3 am, so a late check-in. Confirmed in writing the arrival again to make clear that I arrive at 3 am, so on my second day of reservation. The receptionist took forever for check-in with the excuse that cut-off is at midnight and after that the room key never worked. It took till 4 am until I was in my room, still no working key. I had the impression the room was not freshly made. The trash can was still full from the previous guest and there were no towels in the bathroom. Another delay. The street is under construction and the cab could not get there. Not fun to walk in that area at 3 am with luggage. The room safe did not function. Looks like the place needs some work and better management!

This was our second stay at Saba Hotel and once again we were treated like royalty. Our flight to the USA was at a rather odd hour, but the hotel were happy to accommodate our special requests of an early and late check in during our stay in Panama City as well as assist with a good rate. Their staff are wonderfully welcoming and ensure that all your needs are met and then some. The hotel is beautifully clean, calmly decorated and a pleasure to stay in. The breakfast is simple but still tasty and good. Our room was clean, large and comfortable with an en suite bathroom containing a large shower and plenty linen. The hotel is perfectly located as it is on a popular taxi route and within walking distance of restaurants and shops. This hotel is highly recommended.
