“Lovely Botique Hotel in the Heart of Panama City”
Reviewed January 12, 2011

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the DeVille. The service was excellent, our room beautifully appointed, the amenities totally first class and the food in the adjoining restaurant delicious. This hotel is truly an oasis in the heart of Panama City. We look forward to staying there again.

Recently my wife and I had the pleasure of visiting this Hotel (2) times while we were in Panama. To say the least, we found the Hotel to be the best Hotel we stayed in while in your country. The Hotel had beautiful appointments from the lobby to the rooms we stayed in. The staffs attention to detail was impeccable. One of the employee's really stood out going out of her way to accommodate our needs and make us feel so very special. While I do not remember her last name, Candy, was here first name and she was excellent both times we stayed. It helped make our trip to Panama so memorable.

I just got back from a weekend trip to Panama City and stayed in Hotel Deville. Agree with the rest of the reviews on here. Great location, in the financial district. Not too far from the old quarter, causeway, domestic, and int'l airports.

The rate we got was pretty good and was comparable to other chain hotels, but I much prefer the smaller boutique hotels.

I don't usually write reviews, but the reason I feel compelled is the service is brilliant. All of their staff were extremely friendly. We had quite an interesting experience: the safe in our hotel malfunctioned and therefore couldn't get our passports out in time for a domestic flight. Turned out we needed our passports and therefore couldn't fly. Luckily we were able to fly the next day without any issues. The owner of the hotel came to our room, apologised profusely, and opened the safe. He also gave us a free night stay, on the spot, for our troubles.

Highly recommended and will stay there again if I go back to Panama.

Fabulous place to stay! We try to stay here at least a couple of days when we are in the city. Very clean, friendly staff, good breakfast. Located in a nice area of the city. Safe. The rooms are well done and very comfortable. Restaurant 10 is right next door and has excellent food. The beds are very comfortable.
Everything is new and in great condition. Very worth checking out.
The only negative - no pool. We have kids and a pool is an important part of vacation for them. That is why we don't spend every night in Panama City at DeVille. If they had a pool, we would never go any place else.

I would certainly go back to this place if I were to visit panama city again. The rooms are fairly basic but very nice. The staff is very helpful and friendly. There are also a number of things within walking distance including restaurants, bars and shops.

First trip to Panama City and, not knowing our way around, this hotel offered a central location in the Area Bancaria. There are several good restaurants and clubs/bars within a 10-15 min walk, as well as car rental agencies and travel agents. The area appears very safe, even for walking around late at night.

The hotel itself is fairly basic, but with large, clean, neat rooms and attentive staff who assisted with each request we had. There is no pool nor fitness room, but there is wireless internet throughout the premises. The inclusive breakfast offering is adequate, though certainly not exceptional.

Given extremely high cost of hotels in Panama City, this seems a good choice, though not at the rates published.
