Reviewed November 20, 2013

We arrived late without a reservation, and walked to this hotel where we were offered a corporate rate of 40$ for a double room. The room was big, all extremely clean and in a good state. Wifi is included in the price. Next to the parque, so it´s easy to walk out and get around.

Nice clean hotel in downtown David right by the square. Very clean and room was comfortable with good wifi. It appears new and has friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again. There is a supermarket only a block away and a good sandwich place in the next block. Restaurant a bit spendy (for Panama) but OK.

This is a nice hotel (not certain why it is called a B&B). It has certain charms. Other reviews do an excellent job of describing this property. We saw no vermin or vectors.

I appreciate the dining room staff, they were patient when we arrived late, and the coffee is exceptional. We had a nice suite. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. A very pleasant fellow made up the folding bed for our son.

I'm fairly forgiving when off the beaten path, and probably generous with ratings. However, David is a very hot & humid. The AC in our room would run for a few hours, then shut off. You had to push a button to restart it. The room warmed up a bunch when the AC ceased running. The result is you wake up in the middle of the night, really hot, restart the AC and then try to go back to sleep.

Really? This is the year 2013 and it is difficult to overlook stone age energy management of this kind. By my math the most this mickey mouse control might have saved in electricity during our stay is well under a buck. Raise the room price $2 to cover the cost & let me sleep thru the night.

4 hot and humid stars, but only because the staff is nice.

Hotel is in the heart of David. You can walk out and go to the main square in the city center. Grocery store and restaurants are close by. The wifi is AMAZING. great signal all over the hotel. Staff was friendly. I also have a great fear of bed bugs. The hotel has been bed bug free. At least my room has 228. I would recommend this hotel as a nice hotel to in David. The air is also nice and cold. Stay here for business and pleasure. The only thing that might bother people are the really flat pillows. I liked them, but others could complain.

We stayed just one night on our way to Panama. Clean room although the bathroom is a bit on the small side and the air con was quite noisy outside our room. Breakfast nicely served in the restaurant.
It was easy to get your bus tickets for the 7 hour trip to Panama City from the main Terminal but you must, must, buy them the previous day to be sure of a seat.

Room Tip: Check the noise level of the A/c.

My stopover for a couple of days while touring Panama. Beautiful tiled and clean hotel. Big one bedroom, queen, great shower, all amenities, Wifi. Great value. David is bustling travel hub for Panama. Beauty Salon on one side, nice cafeteria on the other. Did not use in house restaurant.
Saw new "Skyfall" release in English at a movie house around the corner. Plenty of shops, market and stores in easy walking distance. Reception and staff could not have been kinder.
