David, Panama
Reviewed December 20, 2016

Room: Noisy with thin walls and right on the street/Side Walk. Parking: Under Ground/Covered - Dark, small, and not enough. TV: Flat screen .. OK .. Channels good .. Bed: Fair at best .. Pillows ( Not Good ) Bathroom Good: Hot Water & Fast Value: Fair ... They will probably try to raise your room rate ..

We just love this place! Clean, excellent water pressure, and a restaurant on site are factors that make this place a favorite. We have stayed twice, and both times our room has a window with room darkening curtains placed far away from the bed, so if you like to sleep in, it stays dark after daylight. The staff are friendly...

Be in no doubt, David ain't a pretty place, nor is it interesting. But it's friendly and it's where I found myself needing to be for a night, which turned into two nights because my outbound flight was cancelled. Alcalá is a large hotel a few blocks from Plaza Cervantes, the staff are friendly and efficient and the hotel offers...

This is a 'silk purse' hotel in a 'sow's ear' of a town. The hotel was wonderful. Friendly staff, very accommodating and very comfortable property. However, the property is in the middle of a depressing and scary area of David, Panama. The area does have a large commerce consisting of small kiosks and vendors, which was fine, but if you...

The front desk staff greeted us each morning as we came down for breakfast. The room was very comfortable and spacious for our stay. Good variety of food choices in the restaurant. Found all personal to be very friendly and helpful to us as we speak very little Spanish

You do get what you pay for.... and for less than 1/2 the price of Gran Nacional it's well worth it! Resturante is good and inexpensive. A Filet Mignon is $10 and if your lazy, room service is $1.50 more.
