I am a US citizen and hold a Panamanian resident card. I regularly stay at the Castilla for value price, security, and a peaceful atmosphere. As mentioned many times before the Castilla has clean rooms, although they are bit small if you are travelling with a companion. For those who are somewhat physically challenged, you need to be aware that... More

I like this place! It's clean and modern and right downtown for only $39 (single room). It has real hot water and a good restaurant too! My choice if I ever have to stay in David again.

We end up there for Christmas eve and it was great fun. People are still on the streets till 11pm buying gifts. We were told that after 11pm is a family time/dinner and at 1am people go dancing. We checked 2 hotels: 4* Hotel “Nacional” - $93 per 2 pp room, $126 for 4 pp room included breakfast buffet, pool,... More

Hotel Castilla is located right in the center of David . The double room ( double bed plus a single bed) provided is comfortable but a bit cramped compared to Canadian hotel rooms. It would help if they got rid of the single bed . A good shower system with hot and cold water , and supply of 2 thick... More

Have visited David 3 times now, found the Hotel Castilla quite by accident on the first trip and love staying there. The staff are all friendly and very helpful, and the rooms are great; super-clean and quiet, excellent A/C, with top-notch Wi-Fi and cable. There is a very nice restaurant just off the lobby, ideal for breakfast or a quick... More

This is a very, very nice hotel in the "not as nice" town of David. The rooms are immaculate with nice furniture, phone, TV, comfortable bed, free wifi, and even drinking glasses! I paid $38 for a single, so it should have been nice. The staff was very professional and helpful.

Tried 2 times over 30 some hours to make a reservation for 1 night in mid Sept. '11, including our Am Exp card (available on their online Reservation Form which claims response w/in 36 hours!!), and its been over 3 days with nothing. There is no other contact such as email, so don't know whether we have a reservation or... More

Was referred to this hotel by a local attorney after an extremely long 24hrs in Panama. It was pouring rain, I was hungry, dirty and exhausted. I was not at all impressed by the exterior, but walking into the lobby was promising. It was quiet, spotless and interesting. Thank goodness they have a bellhop, because there are NO ELEVATORS IN...

We arrived on a Sunday, and I can't say anything positive about the arrival. The front desk was not overly helpful or nice - she basically just took my credit card and gave me a key. However, the room was spacious and clean, and the a/c was nice. The internet was zippy, and the secure parking was a plus in... More

This is definitely NOT a B&B, it is a hotel. This is the best hotel that I have stayed at in either David or Panama City. My only reason for giving it a 4 instead of 5 is that it lacks an elevator. They cheerfully carry your bags up and down for you but, if you have trouble with stairs,... More
