              Very Nice”

              good bed, good shower (plenty of water, both hot and cold), nice and helpful front desk personnel, clean & comfortable room (including a real closet!). ask for a balcony room. they will tell you that they're smaller (and they might be, but only very slightly smaller), but the balcony, albeit small, was really nice!
              Not a great neighbourhood, but in general it felt very safe.

              great experience at centroamericano! much, much better than across street at hotel discovery (windowless rooms), even though discovery has a free, though very inconvenient, airport transfer service. don't pay more than us$20.00 from the airport. to the airport the best you can do is $25.00. you will not regret staying here if you're on a budget. very good value for money. nice people!

              Cheap, clean, restaurant, internet, no hassles
              restaurant closed on Sundays, only speak spanish

              This was my second time staying at this hotel and my stay had only gotten more comfortable. This time I had a room with a balcony facing the front of the hotel. My room was again cleaned each time I left it and the staff remembered me from the last trip and thus made me feel even more comfortable. The hotel has all the basic things you will need to make your stay enjoyable that you would find anywhere else but at a much cheaper price

              The best feature of this hotel was that it was a very comfortable place for the price.
              there was not enough safe deposit boxes and english was not understood by the receptionist

              This place had a nice size comfortable room with good Air-conditioning. A retaurant is inside the hotel that has a nice menu for food and alcoholic drinks. I had a complementary continental breakfast ticket each day but the food was so reasonable I paid to eat like a pig. Just step outside and a taxi will pass by every corner in literally minutes. A maid was practically stationed on my floor and gladly cleaned my room every day I left my room, of course I tipped her $2 a day. you can use two computers at the hotel and fast internet cost $1 per hour. Dont waste your money making local calls with your cell phone; use the pay phone in the lobby which only cost .25 cents.

              Economical, good safe area, clean, room with TV, Phones and soap
              very little english is spoken.

              Hotel Centroamericano is a good place for those that are looking for a clean and secure place to sleep. Although it is not fancy, it does have all that one needs, a TV with Cable, local and Cinemax, even CNN in English. A phone in the room and wireless net access all inlcuded. The restuarant is great for breakfast and maybe even a late snack. The staff is freindly but english is definatly a second language, a little spanish will go a long way. the biggest downside was a somewhat (only slightly) noisy A/C unit with a missing knob. They can arrange a car to the airport for only $20, a bargain

              The experience at this hotel just gets better and better. Did I mention that it is one of the cheapest places you can find and still get all of the amenities of the 4 and 5 star hotels although just not as fancy. Anything I need it seems like it's available now that I'm a familiar face and known to be respectful and generous.

              Convenient location - basic hotel, with small room”

              Location, clean rooms, reasonable breakfast included

              This hotel was basic, but good as a centre to explore the city as it was well positioned in the middle of the city. Breakfast was pretty decent, if a little slow being served. The biggest problem we had was we reserved a twin room for a couple and 10 yr old thinking, from experience and the pictures, that we would have two twin beds. No. We had two single beds. Then, to upgrade to a 'triple' room, they wanted to charge an extra $30 (about 60% more) for a room of the same size (which was small anyway), but with a twin bed replacing one of the single beds. I tried to change my reservation on Agoda and could find no way to amend the room type. Eventually I called Agoda - at some expense as I was roaming - and they arranged the upgrade for about $20 a night - still about 35% more than I had already paid, for virtually the same room. At the original price this hotel would have been value for money. But at the inflated 'triple room' price I would have expected a more bigger room for the money.

              Stayed 1 night in May 2008

              CentroAmericano Hotel, Panama City, Panama”

              Some reservation dates are available with breakfast included for only $1 more if you book with Agoda. Agoda price is less than the rack rate. I extended my stay one night, but they wouldn't give me the Agoda rate on the second night. I ended up paying $10 more.
