“great location and great hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

They messed up my reservation, but gave me a GREAT room to make up for the inconvenience. Then they charged for an extra night, but they did refund me after I called them about it. All in all, I was happy and would still stay here again. The hotel is quiet, the location is great, the taxis/guides out front are awesome (ask for Marcel) and breakfast is delicious. I'll be back!

I stayed 5 nights in this hotel in Panama Centro (El Cangrejo). Great location and many nearby shops and restaurants. The rooftop pool is small but it's rarely crowded and the views are great. I don't mind if the bar is not open all the time, it keeps the drinkers away. The views from my room were nice as well, directly towards the high rise buildings, fantastic at night. Modern hotel and very comfortable room with fridge and at least some English spoken channels. Huge bathroom, comfy seat so enjoyed myself at night just relaxing over there as well, which is important for me. Breakfast is very good as well, maybe only the warm stuff should be kept warm, sometimes it was almost cold (same applied to pizza I ordered at room service). Wifi good, nice (not overly friendly) folks and all in all very happy with this place. Next time I am in Panama City I will go here again for sure.

This was my first trip to Panama. I stayed here for a week during Spring Break.
Loved the amenities. Great breakfast, nice but small pool, Turkish bath, gym and sauna. Beds were very comfortable. Only a 5-10 minute cab drive to most areas. I would stay at this hotel again.

This was our first trip to PC. This hotel was well located for walking access to all we needed in Panama City and then some; restaurants, shopping (including groceries), casino (not used but close by), and we even walked to and back from Av Balboa and the 'Ciclovia Cinta Costera' (you could take a taxi one way if you do not like a long walk). All tour drivers and taxis were able to find this hotel easily once you remembered to include "Centro" as there is a Tryp at Albrook..
The clientele seemed to be a mix of tourists and business people; no rowdies when we were there. Electronic room keys are needed to get the elevator to stop on your floor so security did not seem to be a problem.
The rules at the pool restrict 'outside' food and drink which initially seemed silly and a bit of a gouge as their offerings are expensive, but afterwards we could see that this kept things controllable for them. The pool was a nice place to go after a day of touring/walking. We had to ask for towels in that area and they were happy to have them delivered - could be better stocked.
All the staff were helpful and pleasant. The rooms were spotless; one day the room did not get attention until after we had returned from our tour (4:30 pm) which did seem a bit late and which was a bit inconvenient but only for 15 minutes. We found the restaurant a bit expensive so ate elsewhere except for the included breakfast ... just OK, but adequate ... some days they ran out of basics like regular tea bags. They did offer a "boxed" breakfast (in a bag) which was pathetic - we had it twice and declined it the third time we were leaving early. No ice machines but you can get ice from the bar ... with a smile.
It was convenient that they kept our luggage while we did side trips. They were also very helpful when there was a glitch in our reservations.
All things considered I would be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Room floors are numbered 1 up; but 1 is above parking garage floors and an office floor. The better...

Clean, modern hotel with great service and free parking in a convenient neighborhood. My husband and I stayed here for one night and it was everything we needed at a great price. We also walked around the corner to a brew pub and enjoyed people watching there.

Room Tip: We could hear people waiting for the elevators...may want to request a room away from the elevators.

Didn't start off well, despite double email confirmation prior, our requested King bedroom wasn't available for us the night we arrived. Free breakfast was convenient and tasty, restaurant food was good as well. Neighborhood a bit sketchy at night. Rooftop pool was the highlight.

The TRYP is a good choice for a Panama hotel. Decent prices, good service and convenient location. Don't expect a 5 star hotel, the room smelled a little funny and has some wear and tear. Overall this was a good entry into Panama.
