We recently spent two nights here in a third floor room with a balcony facing the Panama canal.
We chose this property so we could watch all the marine traffic on the canal from our balcony and we weren't disappointed. Dozens of large container ships and freighters passed close by every day. Wow, fascinating to see!
The hotel itself is fairly basic, but clean. Rooms are a decent size with a comfortable bed. The one dinner we ate at the hotel restaurant was surprisingly tasty. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of fruits and pastries in addition to the usual eggs and such. There is also a TGIF restaurant attached to the hotel.
The neighborhood is quite dirty, but quiet and removed from the downtown core. It's a good location if you plan to use it as a base for touring the city by car, but not by foot, as there didn't seem to be anything else of interest in the immediate area. Also, not sure about how safe the area is.
We felt it was a reasonably priced option in the city.
