Albrook Inn
Ranked #36 of 79 Panama City B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 12, 2013

This hotel is one of the closest to Albrook Airport which makes it a very convenient layover location. We had to spend one night here in order to catch our flight out of PTY the following evening.

The hotel was quiet, the beds were comfortable, the food in the restaurant was good, the staff were friendly, and this hotel is in an amazingly beautiful old neighborhood. The homes around it were actually the officers quarters when the area was an US Air Force location. They are remodeling the officers club next to the hotel but this hotel is actually on a cul de sac so it stays quiet.

The hotel however really needs to invest in a vacuum cleaner instead of using a broom to sweep the floors. There was hair from the last client in the bathroom and in the room itself. A small turn off in an other wise nice stay. There is no elevator which is another drawback especially if you have more than one suitcase but their valet is willing to assist.

The grounds are well maintained and the area around the pool is a nice place to sit and read.

Close to the domestic airport & bus terminal this is a good first stop in Panama. To boot, breakfast is included. My room was clean, with an amazing shower, flat screen tv & ac. On a downside, one of the window locks didn't work which was a little unerving.

Hotel is located conveniently close to the canal. it is next to the Marcos Gelabert airport, not to be confused with the Tocumen international. The room was small and smelled of fresh paint, but sufficient for a short stay. Hotel offers a breakfast (oatmeal, toast, fruits, meats, cheese, cereal as well as juice and coffee).

This is a nice quiet hotel in a residential neighborhood. Furthermore, the regional airport is between it and the Albrook Mall. That means it is close to nothing. Also, if you take a taxi, DO NOT have the front desk call one for you. It cost $12 to go about 3 miles to the Metropolitan park in a taxi the hotel arranged. The return trip in a cab we flagged down at the park cost $3. There are no restaurants within walking distance so you pretty much have to eat at the hotel. Food is good and not too expensive, but tiresome after a couple of days.

We spent a few nights here as this is an approved hotel for pets. The accommodations were adequate and relatively comfortable with a small kitchenette and table with chairs plus the usual beds and bath.
The attached restaurant is a good dining experience, with excellent service and a fine variety of entrees.
Cost is very good...

The Albrook Inn has a motel kind of atmosphere. The rooms are a bit gloomy. The swimming pool is small. The terrace in the garden has no veranda style roof, which is necessary in Panama, either against the sun either against the rain. So you are obliged to take a seat in steamy airconditioned restaurant if it is raining and you want to be outside your room.
The "hotel" is no good value for your money. Too expensive. The best news is that the Albrook airport is only a 5 minutes drive with the taxi. You can order a taxi at the reception but be careful that the Spanish speaking staff has the the time right. The taxi we ordered did not arrive in time because the staff wrote down the wrong pick up time.

My husband and I stayed there for a few days to visit family and visit Panama for vacation from Texas. We loved the people, the breakfast, and the property had natural beauty.

Everything was perfect! The manager, Armando, was very accommodating and gracious.

This will be the hotel we stay at every time we visit Panama.
