I stayed here as part of a group tour. The location is pretty central and reception staff was very welcoming. I stayed two nights here- once at the beginning of my tour and once at the end. The first night I had a room on the third floor which was clean with okay water pressure and mild water temperature. The... More

The room was lovely, air con works well, unfortunately a few down sides... Cold water, lights outside that stream through the crappy blinds, noisy area, tiny bathroom. Other than that, it's about 20 min walk to old city along the waterfront, which is lovely. Reception is very helpful, but limited English. Restaurant is just a step up from a greasy... More

We had originally booked through an accommodation site to spend an additional night in Panama City at the end of a organised tour through Central America.

The hotel is a 5 min walk from the waterfront Boardwalk. From there, you can walk to Caso Viejo and back, but it will take you 30 min one way. On Sunday mornings, you can rent a bike and ride out to El Amador .... if you are into cycling, this is a great ride. If you are not, you... More

I do not like to book places to stay online without really seeing what you are getting. That is why I originally booked this hotel for one night.

I stayed here on a G Adventures tour and would have been happy to stay here even longer. My room had AC (so helpful in the humid rainy season) and I was happy with both water temperature and pressure. Walls are a little thin, but not terrible. The only issue was the very long parade rehearsal on Sunday; it was... More

This is a nice place to stay if you are on a budget. It is within walking distances to many things and a small cab ride to the mall. The staff is very friendly and is willing to help anyway they can. They have a restaurant attaches that is reasonably priced.

First time to visit this wonderful city. The hotel was a great experience, clean with ac and comfortable bed. The service guest outstanding. The ladies cleaning the rooms are friendly and very helpful. More then likely I will go back and stay at this wonderful hotel. The food at the restaurant was great. Happy hour very affordable.
