The only reason this place is in business is that it caters to bus trips. The people were rude and they never had enough food so we could eat breakfast before we would take off for our tours. Then when we came back to eat dinner they never had enough food to order. I order a dish with chicken. After... More

The hotel is cheap, but I really expected more according to the price, People who work there are awful, irrespectful and not kind at all. The rooms are horrible, bathroom horrible, everything is awful. The breakfast is ok, but it doesnt worth it if all the rest sucks. My suitcase was attraped on the elevator for half an hour cuz...

If there is one thing that I love about Panama are their skyscrapers and beautiful buildings that surround Panama City. However, when I travel to Panama, I stayed at the Hotel via España for about 3 days. The hotel is average, they do have AC & WIFI w/Internet access, the bar was ok, and breakfast was good enough for me... More

The room was depressing. The lighting was poor. The bed sheet was very thin; it pulled away from the mattress. The moment I saw the room, I knew I had to find another hotel.

We stayed here a number of weeks and more often than not found staff rude and un-helpful. Our bathroom was rarely cleaned, on most occasions cleaning of the room meant emptying the bin! The good thing with the room was the air-conditioning which seemed to be lacking in the rest of the hotel at times. Food in the restaurant was... More

I recently stayed at the Via Espana in Panama City and was pleasantly surprised. I actually stayed in two different rooms, one for three nights and one for one night on my last night of the trip. The rooms were both equipped with airconditioning that worked and two beds. The first room was quite noisy due to the street traffic,... More
