Because of the competition among luxury hotels in Panama, the price of the Bristol has come down considerably, since the times when it was the clear Nr. 1 in town. Nevertheless, this is still a fine luxury hotel with excellent service, a serene atmosphere, and good food. Only the pool area is not at the highest level.

We stayed at the Bristol three nights ahead of a cruise. We picked it due to its location in the middle of downtown. Check-in was fast and smooth. Our room was fine thought the view was just awful. Oh well - we spent little time gazing out the window anyway. We were at the end of a hall and it was quiet and we slept well. The bathroom was fine though a glass wall and door is not the best idea...(there is a pull sheer curtain for some privacy). We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant every day and it was quite good and well better than average. We also ate one lunch and one dinner there and the food was, again, very good. There are two bars and we visited both (of course we did...) and came to enjoy lounging in the first floor bar which is both cozy and pleasant. Pricing was excellent. One downside (not about the hotel) is that Panama City is not a good pedestrian city.

Quality is superb! Although you might think is expensive, other hotels charge the same for less quality and average services. We stayed there during Carnival and it was very quiet which allowed us to relax and rest well. We also ate at Salsipuedes restaurant and got a massage at their spa

Our corner room was extremely comfortable. It was well appointed; plenty of space to unpack and hang our belongings. The bed was divine. The staff was very helpful with directions and advice. We used uber to get around. It didn't feel like there was much to see in this neighborhood; the hotel has a good location, but it seemed like a business district. The breakfast buffet was included in our room. There were many choices as well as omelets made to order. Excellent coffee
