The hotel is in a good location, less than 10 minutes walk from public transport and about 30 minutes walk from the main malls area. There's a casino just at the end of the road. It's ok, the room was decent but with lots of fluff under the bed. The bathroom was very clean, but I found everything too old.... More

I had an overnight layover in Panama before going to the Dominican Republic. The hotel was a $30 cab ride from Tocumen and was $55 for the night; I was able to get a room easily without a reservation. The room was clean and the staff was as helpful as they could be between their broken English and my slightly... More

I do not recomend this hotel. Location is not bad, but many facilities in the room are not working. AC not working all the day, TV commander not working. Asked to change and 2 days later waiting. ALso do not expect even 1 hour late check out, even if the hotel is empty. Bed is confortable, but the bathroom is... More

I have stayed at the Marbella hotel at least 5 times in the past 7 years and can recommend it as a great stopover hotel if you are in Panama City for a few days. Located within walking distance to city center, the hotel has a very good restaurant of it's own and is walking distance a plethora of eating... More

Wifi works great, on it as I write this. Close to a casino that was okay and was able to walk around the area and it felt like a safe area. I am by myself and just checking out the area for my first night in Panama.... Very quite and the A/C is working good.

Stayed in this hotel as park of a package for a tour with Aventuras Panama. It was in a good location, close walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Clean, pretty quiet considering location around busy streets. Not the best for a solo traveler just because it's a hotel and there is no common area. I also like having a... More

Location, location, location... It's just a short walk from via Espana, there's a bookstore nearby, other shopping, and Panama's only brew pub (Istmo) is around the corner. Could you ask for more? The hotel is clean and safe, the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple, have cable, hot water and excellent wifi. The AC in my room... More

We have stayed here many times and service is always efficient and friendly. The rooms are plain and simple, but fill the need for a/c and a comfortable bed with a good tv. The central location is a definite plus. Also, the restaurant , although plain, serves spectacular food. The shrimp with garlic is some of the best in Panama... More

We've stayed in Panamá a few times now and normally stay at the Milan, just round the corner, but it was full. The Marbella is $10 cheaper and it shows. The rooms are a little tired and ours had a slightly damp smell. Beds are big, room felt small, but it was clean enough, just nothing special. On the plus... More

Right downtown close to casino. And nightlife. There's a laundry mat down the road very good value for what you pay good little restaurant in the hotel. They don't speak very much English. But everyone was very nice. Security right outside
