“Near the heart of the city.”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

This hotel was not within walking distance of restaurants or shops however the great doormen are always happy to get the attention of waiting taxis. Customer service is top notch at this hotel.

As most reviewers have already said, the Toscana is a very good choice in Panama City. Everything is well-kept. There are a variety of restaurants to choose from in walking distance. The staff is nice and tried to be helpful; however, we found that they weren't particularly knowledgable about some of the things that we were interested in seeing. The breakfast offered a good variety.

Room Tip: We requested a quiet room.

In safe area. Walking distance to many restaurants and tourist shops. Took taxis to all locations. The MOST you should pay is $10 USD....to Canal, ferry, Old City etc... Booked through Expedia and had some issue with the room/beds but they dealt with that immediately. Front desk speaks English and helpful....not all woman at breakfast do though. Hot breakfast varied during out 4 mornings...sometimes "too traditional" with Panama local foods. Had breads/spreads, cereals, fruit, milk, orange juice (tasted like Tang). Rooms clean, beds comfortable. Some towels were dirty so requested new ones which came promptly. I would recommend a clock in the room. Our wake up call came at correct time. Booked pick up at airport through hotel and was charged $45 for five people (including some children). You pay driver directly. Organized our own taxi back to airport in early morning for $30. They packed us breakfasts to go because we left before they open at 6:30...nice touch. Many car rental places on block. Pre-book online and bring confirmation because the companies don't always have cars available if you just walk in.

I stayed at the Toscana Inn for 5 nights while on a tourism trip and thought the hotel was very good.

The location is okay – tourism sites in Panama City are spread throughout the city and you have to take taxis to most places so there is no single ‘best’ location. The hotel has restaurants and shops nearby and a supermarket is also close. There were usually a few taxis waiting out front.

The highlight of the hotel for me was the breakfast buffet. It included local dishes like spicy stews and meats, plantains, steamed bread – I loved going down in the mornings and trying out the new food. (There was also conventional western food like scrambled eggs, bread, fruit etc.)

The room was well equipped and it had a bar fridge for guest use (ie it wasn’t a minibar full of the hotel’s stuff). The staff I spoke with were OK with English and were consistently helpful – I’d say the hotel puts some effort into staff selection and training.

There were no negative issues during my stay.

Toscana Inn is located in the Cangrejo neighborhood, in Panama City, which is a nice neighborhood, safe, where people can walk around without worrying much (of course, common sense and caution is always the best bet). The hotel is very well kept, nice lobby and restaurant (although small and crowded during breakfast), the parking lot is also kind of small but they have additional parking spots accross the streets. The rooms were nice, well kept, had all the ammenities, etc. Briefly, is somewhat pricey compared to other hotels, but worth it.

The staff was surprisingly polite and helpful, which is rare in Panama (I must say that customer service is Panama is awful, EVERYWHERE, from waiters, to cashiers, to fast-food joint servers, etc.)

Another good thing is convenience, location, and of course, being close to one of the best restaurants in Panama City: The Parrillada Martin Fierro. If you have the chance, go and try the parrillada, it's the best stuff.

This is my 2nd time visted Toscanainn in Panama City since last November and I just felt like going back home. The service is just excellent like last time, places very neat & clean. The manager still recognized me, and everywhere I go I just see smiling faces.Food is still very good. Due to the very comfortable enviroment my trip this time was just as successful & smooth like last time. I do strongly recommand to travellers to stay at this excellent hotel (price very reasonable too)

Room Tip: prefer 5th floor
