“Good service & location. Needs update in cleanliness otherwise good value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Hotel has been renovated & well maintain that means all amenities are working properly. Cleanliness I would give it a 3 as I saw a half an inch cockroach in the toilet the very first night I check in. There's also a small ants coming out in the toilet door in the morning. Another thing is the noise level where I hear people chatting in the hallway and sometimes their footsteps in spite of my door is close. Maybe it lack insulation or simply the wood is thin, you be the judge. Other than that the room is spacious and location is near the park with stunning view of the city, sunset and pacific ocean. It's just walking distance and nearby to the hospital. This location is safe with street vendor crowding all over the street selling local foods & Mc Donald is the only fastfood that open late at night. Other than that most of their restaurant closes at 6PM and likewise with their supermarket. Buy your grocery & supply early in the day as the hotel is located in the business area. By the way they pick you up in the airport for free (a saving of $40). There's also a free continental breakfast for each guest.

We stayed here for 2 nights after a long flight from the Netherlands. It's a clean simple hotel with just everything you need. We had a free pickup from the airport and a kingsize bed room. In the room is a small fridge, TV and a good AC. The Breakfast which was included was ok but a bit poor...
To go into town is easy .. there are just so many taxi's stopping in front of the hotel!
It's a good hotel to stay a night or two, after or before you have to travel on!

Definitely worth the price! My friend and I each paid $20/night to stay in a room with 2 double beds, good view, very clean, good wifi connection. We stayed 2 nights and got a free airport pickup. Nice TV and AC in the room. There was a fridge but it was broken. The breakfast was lame, but I didn't expect much anyway. The staff was moderately helpful and the location was ok. I would highly recommend to anyone on a budget.

I spent 3 nights at $36 and was pleased with the service. I had been approached at the bus terminal and was given a free ride to the hotel. Breakfast was included, rolls, jam and fresh pineapple juice and coffee. Computer was $1 per hour and it saved any extra time for a return visit. It is clean and quiet, located near hospitals and medical and dental facilities. A fridge was in the room but I had to request a bedside lamp that was promptly brought. AC and Cable TV, several channels in English. I booked a fantastic tour on a trolley-like air-conditioned bus. The guide spoke English and Spanish. For $30 we spent 4 hours out at the Canal. the fish market, the duty-free shops at the causeway, and the old town, very reminiscent of Cartegena, Colombia, and to the vendors plaza where hats, molas and baskets made by the Kuna Indians could be bought. One is not allowed guests in your room. Hot and cold water in the bathroom. I would recommend this hotel and staff to anyone on a budget. For $10 I was delivered to the airport when I left.

The best reason to stay in this hotel is the location. But for the rest, not so good at all! To start with, we asked to see the room beforehand, our request was met with some rudeness and we had just a few seconds to inspect it! Breakfeast was poor with very dry bread and tastless coffee. We had a problem with the A/C unit, so they had to change us to another room; the annoying point about this is that the technician who came to the room told us that the A/C unit was not in order to function for some weeks before we occupied the room! Personnel was not friendly, no smiling faces here...The rooms were very basic but clean enough.

I spent 2 nights here. My room cost $36/night for a single. My room was quiet, on the 4th floor, and was air conditioned, with a decent bathroom. I'm not too crazy about the neighborhood. Seems like no one picks up the trash anymore in Panama City?!
The breakfast that is included with the room consists of 2 yucky while rolls, some watered down OJ, and a cup of coffee. You can find fruit salad around the corner for $1.25 which is what I ended up doing. I had to catch a cab at 1:00 am to get the airport, and a staff member walked me down 2 blocks to get me a good cab. The front desk personnel are friendly and helpful. There are 2 computers that you insert dollar bills to get one hour of online time. The hostel I was going to stay in charges about the same for a single room without a bath...so I do believe the value is worthwhile. It's my 2nd trip to Panama City, and frankly, I hope it's the last. Not my favorite place on the planet!

Room Tip: Rooms that don't face the street are quieter. Panamanian drivers use a lot of horn.
