I have stayed here several times while a family member was in hospital nearby. The rooms are clean and the front desk staff are all very friendly and helpful. They also speak English which is a bonus for many visitors. The facilities are basic but have everything you need. It is close to many restaurants and it is always easy... More

The pluses are clean and cheap, with working air conditioners. The cons are small rooms, poorly furnished and street noise (up the street from a hospital.) The hotel is difficult to find for taxis but is located between 2 metro stations. It wasn’t terrible but not 3 stars in my opinion.

This hotel has two big advantages. It is really cheap compared to the other overpriced hotels in panama. And it has fantastic checkin and checkout times. Checkin is possible from 7am and Checkout up until 3pm. Especially when arriving with a morning flight you only have to pay one night, while at most other hotels you would be charged for... More

The Hotel Marparaiso is a basic place to stay, but clean and well-located for a stay in Panama City. An easy walk to The Fish Market and Casco Viejo. A metro station is only 3 blocks. Hot breakfasts are included. For those arriving in Panama City, a free hotel shuttle is provided. Two of the front desk attendants were fluent... More

We stayed in Marparaiso in December 2014/January 2015. The rooms are OK and clean. The Breakfast is for nothing and the personal is very, very unfriendly. Is like they don't like guests but the money. Once and not a second time.

Room not very big and even smaller bathroom but I'm a BIG guy and had no troubles with anything. Had room on 5th floor and could see the ocean (a little) and some... More

Marparaiso will be on the radar of budget travellers visiting Panama city, so it should not be compared with the fancy hotels downtown, which are about two to three times the price of this one. We stayed there for three days while waiting for the ferry going from Colon to Carthagena (Colombia), which leaves only twice a week. # look... More
