This hotel is located in a very shady area, there are motels and very questionable places around it. Don't feel comfortable walking at night around the are. I wouldn't recommend this for families with small kids. The hotel doesn't offer a fridge for the room, if you want to include it they will charge you 8 USD per day. Also, they do not provide towels for the room, you need to request them, and probably they will charge you. We had a discussion with the hotel because the told us breakfast wasn't included. We showed the confirmation and they gave us 2 small rolls of ham, and 2 tasteless pancakes, with coffee.
we stayed here a few days ago. the staff was very friendly. one member spoke english fluently and it was very helpfull. the rooms were very clean, and the staff changed the sheets regularly. the hotel is well placed with many things to do around the city.
Average location but convenient for my last night in Panama as close to Albrook airport . Not much in the area if you want to eat and the hotel restaurant on the top floor didn't look up to much. Does offer later check out and there is a small pool on the roof top
This hotel is very bad. It's different then in the photos, not cleaned (cockroach in the bathroom) and they take off more money then needed for the booking. Never respond at any emails. There are for the same price much better hotels to stay.
Having been many times a year in Panama City in the past few years and tried everything from two to five star hotels here, I (European, mainly traveling to panama on private trips), can finally say that I found a hotel that perfectly suits my needs. The hotel is in a central area, clean, has large and light rooms and comfy beds for a very fair price. Something that is not easy to find in Panama City. On the outside the hotel looks quite run down as most buildings in the area. However, the hotel seems to have been recently renovated on the inside (I stayed here years before) and now shows a pleasant reception area. The rooms (standard room) are friendly, have a modern touch and are spacious with large windows that let enough daylight in (curtains at night to make the rooms dark). TV works fine, furniture seems new. The bed is very comfy with a white bed sheet and a warm blanket and four (!!!!) large feathery pillows (not the thin and worn down micro plastic pillows you get elsewhere). Blankets are changed and cleaned daily. Air condition is new and works perfect. Bathrooms are ok but spacious with hot water. No fridge or coffee machine in the rooms. Staff is very friendly and helpful and speaks English. The hotel is in short walking distance to the Cinta Costera (5min) and from there it's maybe 10min to the famous Mercado de Mariscos. The metro station is 100m from the hotel entrance. Around the hotel there are some basic restaurants (rather for locals and travelers than for tourists but very delicious and at a good bargain) and small supermarkets. There is a restaurant in the hotel on the top floor. The neighborhood, however, might not be to everyone's gusto. It is a neighborhood that seems rather rough at night and it is advisable taking a taxi at night to arrive at the hotel. During the day I feel perfectly safe to walk around but don't expect to see the nice side of Panama City in this area. However, there is police everywhere and a police station close by. The restaurant of the hotel is situated on the terrace on the top floor, offering a great view of Panama City and Casco Viejo. There is also a swimming pool. The breakfast served is ok (two buns, butter and Marmelade, a bowl of fruit, eggs, coffee/cacao and orange juice). Given the price it's ok but don't expect much. Dinner however is very good. Great taste, nicely decorated and with a certain extra touch ( I had a Salat with fried calamari that came among others with apple and almonds on top, something very rare in normal priced restaurants in Panama). ALL IN ALL: Highly recommendable hotel if you look for something basic and central that is well taken care of. Not recommendable if you want to be in a nice area or look for a luxurious room/hotel. …
