“Decent for Changuinola”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

Seeing as to how this isn't the...nicest place I've ever been, the hotel was decent. It was clean, the air conditioning was great (which was a welcome change), and staff was accomodating. Also, the price was really good. However, someone down that hall turned the television WAY up at night and the walls must have been really thin. We asked hotel to do something and I think they knocked on his door, but later that night we heard people yelling. Same deal next night. If it wouldn't have been for that, we probably could have gotten decent sleep here.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2008

We walked the street looking for a hotel that took credit cards, had hot water and air conditioning. There were many hotels to choose from (at least 6). We entered Hotel Carol and tried their “hot water” and it never got hot. We entered Hotel SemiRami and their prices were to high (over $35). So we eventually ended up with Hotel Alhambra. Boy was I sure happy we chose this location. It was on a second floor above the supermarket that took credit cards. Alhambra took credit cards, had very hot water with great pressure and an air conditioner that blew ice cubes. This was the perfect choice! We paid for the first night only as we were not sure what we would find during this 4 day adventure, but we ended up staying there every night as Changuinola is the perfect “base” for doing anything in the area, including Bocas.

  • Liked — hot water with pressure and air conditioning and cheap price
  • Disliked — thin walls with drunks one night of the 3 we were there
  • Stayed July 2008, traveled with family
