The hotel is a good hotel for the price range. The location would be good in a safer city, but I felt unsafe in the area.
The InterContinental is better located. If I was prepared to spend quite a bit more then I would have chosen this location. Even though the hotel is just a few streets away from the good area, I did not feel safe enough to walk there. I used a taxi the one time I walked there in order to get back to the hotel.
The hotel public areas was clean and breakfast was adequate. The room itself however was not clean. The carpet under the coffee table was quite dirty. The shower was grimy and we had to wash it the first time we used it.
No restaurant onsite for lunch and dinner although they offered to get us some food delivered. I ordered a pizza the first night as we were too tired to go out to find a restaurant the first night we arrived due to a long flight. However, I wouldn't have chanced walking to a restaurant anyway.
The tap in the bathroom sink is located too close to the basin. This makes washing very difficult as you can hardly get your hand under the tap.
Overall, the fixtures and fittings are classy for Panama and the do serve free wine and coffee in the lobby which is a plus. However for me, I wouldn't book the hotel again unless the price was really too good to refuse.
