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...

Pros: Airport shuttle (for a fee) was at airport as arranged. Felt safe walking in neighborhood, which was mixed new/modern and old/rundown. Surprisingly, the bathroom had a bidet, but no electrical outlet. The free breakfast was decent. Still, we were glad we were only there for one night. Nice rooftop/pool. Cons: First impression of our room: Scary! Building was very...

I stayed there in July 2014 for 10 days. With breakfast included, pool on roof top, and location close to many restaurants, theater plays, bookstores, supermarkets, and any store you may need...you are not going to find a better deal. I agree with some customers on: towels could be better, breakfast is just ok with 3 options, personnel at restaurant...

wow! where do I begin? I have never encountered an entire staff full of rude and inconsiderate incompetents in my life!

Staff are so rude and the hotel is terribly overpriced. We booked on booking.com, saved over half. They said they didn't have our booking and when they found it wanted us to pay more. Wouldn't let us have breakfast. Room was dirty. Don't go there!!!

This hotel was dirty, the breakfast was terrible, the staff is unfriendly and unmotivated. It is really far from the city center. I am pretty sure you can find something better! In general I would advice not to choose Panama City as a holiday target, it is worth to come here only for the Canal.
