I stayed two nights at this hotel. It is very clean, well located, has a beautiful pool on the rooftop, and above all the staff is really helpful, committed and caring (reception, pool, housekeeping). A special thank you to Sara and especially Armando with whom my stay would not have been the same. I definitely recommend the hotel and I will choose it again if I ever come back to Panama City.

Pretty much everything you could want- good location, clean, comfortable, and friendly! The breakfast had a nice selection and the pool and rooftop bar were very nice! The pool isn’t giant, but if you’re looking for lounging with a great view it is perfect! I would stay again and recommend it to friends and family because it’s budget friendly and low stress.

I was very pleased with my room that I booked through TripAdvisor. I believe it was $50 no refund. Go to the rooftop for excellent views of the city. Excellent restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel

Good price and close to Argentina subway station. Very friendly and helpful staff. They let us have our room hours before the official check-in time. Good local Panamanian restaurant just around the corner.

We stayed here as a large group for one night and then as a smaller group for a few nights. Overall clean hotel, nice location. Beautiful rooftop pool and seating area. For the most part staff are helpful and attentive. However, be careful when you check out. A few in our group were incorrectly charged for consuming items from the minibar. Two situations were resolved after lengthy discussions with staff. A third member of our group was running late for the airport and just got frustrated and paid the fees even though they never touched the minibar. Checking in also had some hiccups on both occasions. But I was able to show email confirmations from the hotel manager to resolve it.
