“Good clean hotel, helpful staff”
Reviewed September 1, 2009

I stayed one night at the beginning of a week long trip to Panama and found the hotel to be pretty much what you expect from say a Hampton Inn in the States. Clean, well equipped room with nice bathroom with plenty of hot water. Staff helpfully arranged an early morning return taxi ride to the nearby Metropolitan Park. A highlight was the freshly cooked breakfast, much better than you expect in a similar establishment in the US

I had the misfortune to spend 2 nights at this hotel on a trip through Panama. It was booked by the Travel Agency I used who I have advised of the same.

The room was filthy and smelt very musty. The hot water was tepid and the Front Desk most unhelpful.

To be avoided at all costs.

We were passing through Panama City enroute to other destinations, and needed a hotel for just one night lay-over. Our travel company booked at the Country Inn El Dorado, which because of it's US-based affilitation, seemed to be an ok choice - economical, but we thought we would know what to expect.

We found this to be a bad assumption. While the staff was very nice, the hotel itself is worn out, generally not very clean (especially not the bathrooms), and lacked hot water for showers. There are much better options - don't let your tour company sell you a room at this one.

the hotel room was clean and nice.the free breafast was great, with the fruit being very sweet. the gift shop souveniers were priced great and with a large selaction. the staff were nice and always coffee and cookies available in lobby.it was a great experience with only 2 exceptions.the people that worked in the tour company on site had no motivation at all and acted like we were disturbing them.most tours are 4 people minimum and we were only 2 people in our party so they told us to come back when we had 4 people. The biggest complaint is that the hottub was broken when we arrived and stayed broken for the entire 7 days.when we asked daily, the reply is it would be fixed tomorrow. it never got fixed,it actually got drained.we did alot of hiking and walking and would not have stayed there had we known the hottub was broke.when i emailed panama suites upon my returned to the u.s.a.,they replied with a 1 night free stay only good at that location.

Do not stay in this hotel,

I stayed there yesterday and the room was terrible... very dirty, musty smell, hair in the bed and bathroom etc. Even the table chair was so dirty that I had to use a pillow to cover it to be able to sit on it.

I need also to say that this was the second room, because the first one they booked me was so smelly of must that I refused to stay there so they gave me the second one that was a [--] hole.

Basically it was night and I could not change hotel but I change it in the morning and now I am fine here in another hotel.

I hope that helps.

Stayed at this dump in August 2007. Room was dark and filthy, hair all over walls, ceilings and counter tops. Squished bugs on walls and mildew covering the walls and bedding. Window was covered with contact paper and when opened; overlooked a dark alley way and brick wall. Our complaints at the front dest were met with a grinning clerk, who offered absolutely no resolution to the problem. If we would not have been two women traveling alone; we would have never stayed the night.
