We stayed at the Hotel Rex on our way back to Panama City. The price was very reasonable and the room was basic, but clean. The a/c worked and the shower was hot. However, There were large pieces of corrugated metal on the roof that were not nailed down and they flapped in the wind all night long. It was... More

I went to Chitre on a business trip and decided to spend the night here. The hotel is right in front of a cathedral and a small par. It is located in the center of Chitre, and it's a well know place so you can get there easily. Just tell the driver to take you to Hotel Rex or if... More

I wasn't sure about this place after reading other reviews but there didn't seem to be much to choose from in Chitre. We paid a little over $40 for a room with a double bed and it was okay. The bed was comfortable and there was a nice terrace on our floor. We saw the cleaners every morning but the... More

I am hoping the owners read this. I have stayed at the Rex many times. Why? because I love the location with the lovely patio area overlooking the main street and park. There is also a great cafe near called the Open Air which I love. I bought excellent guyabana juice there ... I paid 22 dollars the first night... More

On our December 2012 road trip through Panama we chose this Hotel from our Fodors Panama travel book. While we have always had good luck picking a hotel like this, the Hotel Rex was a HUGE disappointment. We asked for a room with a King bed. We paid $55 which we considered very reasonable. However, when we brought our luggage... More

Since my last review things has changed quite a bit and perhaps not in a positive way. I would think that reviews where made so owners and management could be aware of not only the positive feedback, but also the negative ones and make the necessary changes. Well..the only changes I saw during this trip to Panama where the room... More

. If you are expecting a Taj Mahal and pay $30 per night, well it is not going to be possible. The Rex hotel used to be considered a decent place to stay back in the days, however things has changed quite a bit. I did stay in this hotel last year for almost 2 weeks and I will be... More

I am Panamanian. My standards are not very high I just need a clean room and a place that at least its being taken care. The good: 1. The hotel is in front of the Chitre central park. This is a plus if you want to walk the city, which is nice. 2. They accept small pets. I have a... More

I was planning to stay here at the hotel for 2 nights. Maybe more if I was going to stay in Chitre longer. I checked in and paid and when I arrived to the room there were two very small beds. I guess I assumed I would get a double or queen bed as I was only one person. Or... More
