***Just go and enjoy***
Is my second visit to Panama City and equally to this beautiful hotel, which is surprising to me how nice it is, from its people to its food.
This hotel, I am pleased in all my perspectives, inspires me to want to return soon.
As perhaps you already know, Le Meridien, offers perfection from it: the whole, for example in the quality of service (generally), safety, kindness and attention from your staff. A recommendation from me that assures them an option to eat in your room, serious, The Swiss cheeseburger. Mmmmm / :)
Its location on Avenida Balboa, finished look to this magnificent hotel, since it has access to the entire city, thus ease of shopping, restaurants, nightclubs and of course, not to mention others, its proximity to the old town.

This is my 3rd time to this hotel! I stayed this time for 5 nights in a gold suite. It was perfect with a big bed, beatuful large marble bathroom and livingroom.

This is is a 5 star modern very clean and in the best area of panama directly on Bolba avenue! The hotel is very trendy and there are many raturants and clubs surrounding the hotel!

The staff are very friendly and accomidating.
The room service is excelente and fairly priced! When coming to Panama city this is the only hotel to stay at ! This is on my top list of hotels to stay at in central and South America!

Very chic hotel. My room had a fantastic view of Balboa Ave and the ocean. The hotel is situated on Calle Uruguay which is in close proximity to many restaurants and bars. It's within walking distance to the Multi -centro mall which has city tour buses that frequently depart through out the day. You can get a 24 hour pass for about $29 per person.

Stayed at the Le Meridien for two weeks in August on business.
I was placed in a deluxe room on the 4th floor. Its always amazing that hotels outside of Europe give you so much more for your money.
The room was 65 sq feet and had floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea.
The room had a super-king bed (for one guy was more than sufficient), a long desk and a lounger.
The bathroom was of a high standard with the shower having a patterned window overlooking the bedroom.
Rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and 1 bottle of water was provided complimentary, but to be fair, the cleaners left me 4 bottles each day during my first week. My only bugbear is that the free wireless internet loses its range on the fourth floor which is quite annoying as I was reluctant to use my IPhone on the higher floors.
Breakfast was served in the restaurant next to the bar on the ground floor which was sufficient albeit a bit small in terms of selection.
Room service provided quite high quality foods and was priced reasonably.
The gym was located on the roof of the hotel and had sufficient equipment for basic gym tasks but would only accommodate 5-6 hotel guests comfortably.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: 3rd floor room if you want wireless internet

I loved this hotel. The room with the view was amazing. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The decor was calm and soothing. The freshness of the fruit at breakfast was fantastic. All in all a very relaxing place. Will visit again.

Room Tip: ajoining room with view is wonderful for friends sharing.

Although we had tours booked for both days we stayed at the Le Meridien, the location and beauty of the hotel made it a great place to return for dinners and the evenings. The modern decor and cleanliness are both inviting, and the included breakfast buffet on Saturday and individually-ordered breakfast on Sunday were excellent, including eggs, bacon, sausage, meats, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, cereals, pastries, breads, assorted juices, and terrific coffee. The gym and spa with steam room and sauna helped us to relax and unwind. The ladies at the spa were very helpful. Several restaurants and bars are in walking distance and hailing a taxi on the corner was quick and easy. The view from the top of the hotel added to an overall positive experience.
