“Stay here!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

The Saba is a great place to stay in Panama City. The hotel itself is clean, modern, and comfortable. Big rooms with lots of amenities. However, the best part about The Saba is the staff. They were very helpful and accommodating with everything from calling taxis to planning trips. They were happy to have our business and made sure we had a room to stay over the course of a week while we were in and out of the city. Veronica helped us plan a last minute trip while Luis always made sure we had breakfast and cabs, even on mornings when we departed very early.

If I return to Panama City, I will definitely return to The Saba.

Modern, clean, comfortable with great staff and service!
Breakfast of your choice is included. Rooms are large and elegant, complete with tub/spa, Wi-Fi, mp3 dock, big screen tv, safe and big windows that open. The bed and pillows made sleeping feel like a cloud nap. The conejo district is bohemian chic, with restaurants, bars and interesting shops, park, and close to everything. A few doors down, you can find Flemenco dancing on the weekend evenings and across the street not far is an artisanal brew pub. Safe district for walking at night. When I return to Panama City, I will stay again at the lovely Saba Hotel.

The Saba Hotel is excellent. It is new, modern, clean, and the staff is extremely helpful, going above and beyond to make sure their guests are comfortable. Veronica at the front desk organized a last minute trip to San Blas Islands the night before we left, and Luis (also at the front desk) made sure we always had taxis, reservations, and breakfast to go as we needed it. I highly recommend this hotel, and would certainly come back if I return to Panama City.

Room Tip: We stayed in a double room and it was very spacious

This hotel is very nice indeed. It is clean and new. The staff were very helpful. They had an excellent and reliable contact for taxi hire- his name was Jose and we did everything through him. He is a gentleman, reasonably priced and polite.
The breakfast was clean and reasonable. There is a big supermarket not far al restaurants in the street. There are and two small ones within easy walking distance. There is a good Subways on the corner if you need a quick meal without doing the restaurant search, taxi ride and attendant expenses. There are a number of restaurants contiguously located, but the food at the Saba is very good.
Wifi was perfect and there is cable TV in each room. Also they arrange laundry for their guests and it was very reasonably priced. This is a very good hotel and if in PC again I will head straight to the Saba

This is my sixth visit to panama, I have stayed several other hotels but none compare to this one,
I found this small hotel just walking on the street, when I did I checked out of the one I was in

The location el cangrejo everything is here and within walking distance

This is a new hotel large rooms well decorated and furnished my bath had jacuzzi tub and shower

Breakfast and fast wi fi are included the staff and management at this hotel go above and beyond to satisfy you and exceed your expectations

If you are looking for a nice quiet hotel that treats you great I would suggest this one,

I will be making future trips to Panama City and this will be my hotel of choice, business or vacation you can't go wrong.

This a new hotel with well designed rooms in a neighborhood with many attractions. It's on a busy street but the rooms in the back are quiet. The staff is eager to please and went out of their way to address any of our needs. It was hard to find a good mid-priced hotel in Panama City. Most were either run-down or very expensive. The Saba was a great find. Make sure to check specials on the internet.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front are bigger and have a nice view to the park but they face a busy street. Roo...

Our stay at the Saba Hotel was lovely; the staff were friendly and helpful, the decor was beautiful, and the rooms were immaculately clean and comfortable. The hotel is also in a very nice part of town (El Cangrejo) that has many restaurants close by. I highly recommend this hotel.
