This hotel was much older than I thought . It really could use a major update . With all the upgrades going on in Colon it could really use some major work . Business wise with the room keys etc. the staff is very nice and the room was comfortable but I was not as comfortable with the openness of... More

This place is run down, dingy, and in a pretty bad neighborhood! We went to view the sunset and was hoping for a restaurant with a view! No such luck and wouldn't have eaten at the place anyway! We ended up ordering a beer and some microwave popcorn at the pool bar and that was the only highlight! $4 for... More

still one of my favorite hotels in colon...maybe it because I like old buildings with amazing history...it's by no stretch of the imagination a 5 star hotel but one can feel the spirit of is grandiose back in the early 1900s when it was the accommodation of choice for the engineers and financiers of the Panama canal while in its...

Only had breakfast here. The entire place was sad and past its prime. The food was very plain and one dish was disgusting. I finished my pancakes but parents were very unhappy. Waitstaff was nice but reception was un inviting. Sadly, I would not recommend unless you like some adventure.

We were doing a day trip in Colon and stopped at the Washington Hotel for breakfast. The gardens in the front of the hotel are very well cared for and the owners have done an admirable job in remodeling the ground floor of the hotel. (We did not stay overnight or venture upstairs.) The hotel's location at the mouth of... More

I stayed here for only one night. The hotel looks good from the outside and view of the sea was nice. But when i entered the room, there were dirt on the floor and the toilet was not cleaned enough. The foods on the restaurant took a very long time to prepare. On the bright side, the wifi was all... More

Colon must be where Neil Young wrote "Keep on Rocking in the Free world". Took a taxi from the Cruise Terminal. Colon is like the old Havana with attitude. 10 times worse than Harlem in the 60's. It is definitely edgy and decrepit -which is eye opening. Never have I seen so much street litter and rubbish. We could see... More

Our stay was short. We checked in at 11:30 am and out at 4pm.... Same day. We spent the afternoon having lunch in the hotel's restaurant, walking the grounds to view its crumbling facade, and interior public space. The Spectacle of canal shipping moving past its waterfront is quite impressive. Amazingly, there's a grounded vessel resting alongside the hotels sea... More

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We stayed 1 night as we were curious to see colon and we couldn't wait to leave. The lobby showed traces of its old glory but rooms and the grounds were sadly in disrepair. You just don't feel safe or comfortable here, it's not a nice environment.

We did not actually stay here, just called in for a beer. However that experience was enough to convince me never to stay. There was no proper bar so we asked for the beers at Reception. The staff were some of the rudest we have met, sullen and resentful. However the deciding factor was the ladies' toilets. There were 3... More
