“Amazing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

It was one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The staff were friendly and very helpful if any problem arose. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms were remarkably clean. The view from the 22nd floor was amazing to a first timer like me to panama.
The restaurant around the corner " Van Gogh " was conveniently located and the staff and waiters there were friendly as well. Excellent service and great food. Overall it was a great experience.

Torres de Alba is good value at a comfortable and convenent location. The new tower is particularly inviting with all of the amenities of a vacation home and a stunning view of central Panama City. Service is efficient and friendly. Restaurants for all tastes and budgets are in easy walking distance. Take advantage of neighborhood shops and services at reasonable prices. Book a tour, take a stroll or just enjoy the comfort of you room.

Torres de ALBA is an economical, well located apartment hotel in Panama city.
I stayed in Tower 2 which seemed a bit dated, though large and comfortable.
initially, the first room I was given was dirty (usty odor, used soap, dirty toilet) and upon complaint, the reception changed my room. the second room was squeaky clean
all in all, I was pleased - the room was spacious with full kitchen was washing facilities.
the breakfast was very good.
My only complaint would be the internet - which was difficult to connect to.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in Tower 3 which is the newest and best.

We LOVE to stay at Torres de Alba, we stay the same place every time we visit Panama. It ain't the fanciest of hotels, but we get a living room, dining room, full kitchen, with W/D, a generous bedroom and bath . . . and of course, the best breakfast in town! It's always clean, the staff is friendly, security is tight, it's right across the street from 2 casinos and walking distance to everything we need, including a grocery store (The Rey) to stock up on food for the kitchen . . . AND we are VIP return guests (like family) . . . what's there not to love for a mere $100/night . . . GREAT VALUE . . . I LOVE TORRES DE ALBA! The newest tower is more expensive, but we like the older towers just fine and we love the price. There are things that they could improve on very easily and they have done so on some issues . . . I would say the thing that I like least about this hotel is that when you pay them, they don't say THANK YOU . . . I have had more than one convo about this . . . It is VERY important to me that when I hand someone $1000 (or any money for that matter) I get AT LEAST a Thank you . .. but that could just be MY petpeeve.

Room Tip: Ask for wash cloths (for some reason, they don't automatically provide)

Our eco tour company recommended the suites of this hotel for spacious and modern accomodation. Tower 3 is the new tower with the best rooms, with each floor having only 4 suites. Each suite is very large, feeling more like an apartment, and included a full kitchen with washing machine and tumble drier - really useful in the hot humid weather.

In general the suite was very cool and modern with flat screens in the living area and the bedroom, and floor to ceiling windows with a great city view. The location is good with many restaurants and casinos nearby and the area feels safe at night. You can also walk to the waterfront and shopping malls from the hotel but it is about a 20 min walk in the heat

The pool is small but nice to have. The breakfast was good with an omelette chef. The wifi was pretty good also and free!

If you are not looking to stay in a luxury 5 star hotel, or are in Panama for a long-term stay this is a really great choice.

Room Tip: Tower 3 suites for a modern apartment-style stay

We love staying here every time we come to Panama. The location is great and if you like having a complete kitchen with a full size washer and dryer when you travel this is your place. The new tower has incredible views of the city.

Room Tip: Ask to see a room in the new tower.

Best place for Panama city. You are central with shops, bars, discos and restaurants nearby. They have private parking. Breakfast is good but too much. The gym is great especially as not many people use it so you have it for yourself. Rooms are the best. Especially when you have a room up high. The view is amazing as you can see the whole city. You almost just want to sit and look out the window and dont leave. Its very clean and spacious. There is big fridge and bg kitchen. Also a dinner table so you can invite family and friends to come over. It is more an apartment than a hotelroom. The price is also very good. Free wifi as well. Small swimming pool. Staff is friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high level!
