This was the first hotel we stayed at when we arrived in Panama. It was on a side street and I did not find the area noisy at all. It was close to a casino and good restaurants. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. They even had a roof top party while were were there for the Panama/Mexico game. Had a good time. The room was very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was average but the food was decent and the coffee was very good. You definitely could have eaten your fill. I would stay there again.
