Good location, helpful staff

We stayed at this hotel during our lay-over in Panama and were very impressed with the flexibility offered us by the hotel. We arrived very early and where immediatedly allocated a nice, spacious room and due to a late flight the next day, again, the hotel gave us a very late check-out with no problems. The hotel has a charming bar, great restaurant, swimming pool and we found the staff to be happy, cheerful and helpful. Would definitely stay here again and can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Nice Local Hotel ”

good price good location,

this is a circo 1970's hotel that has been maintained nicely and is close to several of the avenues so travel is easy with a cab. the only problem is that you can hear the traffic outside so get a room off the street. it is close to several casinos and shopping that the locals use is in the area. the room was clean and linens were fresh. also the hotel has a restaurant and interenet room. at night they offer a barbeque and happy hour at the bar.

A pleasant stay”

large rooms, fast internet, gymnasium

Overall, a pleasant stay. I highly recommend booking thru Agoda as the posted room price was more than double what I paid. For sightseeing, I recommend negotiating with a taxi for a half day and not go thru hotel. The first day, we used hotel concierge and I know we paid double (if not triple) by using that source.

The stay was nice and the price is hard to beat in this area. Now, the drawbacks : we were exposed to traffic noise outside and constantly hear honking horns and car alarms - one alarm constantly sounded for more than 5 hours during the night; I recommend using a regular taxi for exploring sights The hotel will charge you at least triple if you book thru their concierge (don't listen to the pitch).
