Very good hotel for a short period of time! It is comfortable. I did have a bad experience with the food, the meat was really hard and it was really unpleasant, they didn't give any discount because of it. Besides that, the hotel had a very good service and very nice rooms, clean bathrooms and good wifi!

Other than price and location (which is excellent) across the street from a topnotch restaurant, near shopping, taxis, wine bars - this hotel has nothing to offer except a bed. The rooms (I looked at several) were not clean, and the smell of mildew is strong). No way to access fresh air except through shared balcony. Security is poor (no... More

This hotel represents great value for money in Panama. It is close to main roads and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Dont expect 5 star amenities, but really when you look at the room rate you would hardly expect that - but I do think this hotel offers a little more than you would expect for the price.... More

The location is good, you can walk to interesting areas, and not particularly noisy considering where you are. Of course, don't expect top performances, yet room is acceptable, flat screen TV is a pleasant plus, staff - beyond the lazy first impression - is smiling and helpful, and all in all we were glad about the choice. Again, if you... More

This is an old hotel, kind of dingy, about a mile off the main drag, Avienda Balboa, so nicely located near all the big name hotels, but neighborhood seemed to be in at the beginning of an area that was starting to look rather rough. The view from my balcony looked over what appeared to be a junk yard that... More

I checked into this hotel because it was recommended by my regular taxi driver. The lobby looked quite nice actually and the price was cheap for a one night stay. That's where the quite nice ended. I was taken up to my room. The room was old grubby and musty. I was sure I was going to get sick from... More

Again visited this hotel because I liked that area and it is the best price for your money at $44 per night including free: breakfast, wifi, and parking on-site. Also It offers a roof top pool. It is closed to a lot of good restaurants with a full variety of foods and prices.

I feel like I really need to do this as some of the reviews I read are so untrue and unearned. One thing I must stress, most of the not so nice reviews seem to come from Americans. I am an American myself, but I am a patient and educated American. I understand the Caribbean and I can see that... More
