We'd booked the hotel online for $70/night. When we arrived they said they had no record of the reservation. We showed them a print out and they said that their rates had changed from $70 to $100. Though I fought them, there was no winning the battle. I'd have gone elsewhere but it was already 9PM. The rooms were wet...

This hotel was absolutely horrific. If you don't exit the elevator IMMEDIATELY the door will slam shut on your body and won't release until you can squeeze your way out. It was also far too humid in the room. The sheets did not fit the bed - they kept pulling off and you ended up sleeping on a bare mattress,...

To say that this hotel was a disappointment is putting it mildly. My husband I stayed there last week and were very thankful we had booked only one night. The building and furniture are old and nothing was particularly clean. The ceiling in our room was falling apart (though happily the area over our bed was fine). Aside from the...

Great location, near upscale neighborhoods like Obarrio and Punta Paitilla, also near to Multiplaza Pacific Mall and Multicentro and major avenues like Via España. The hotel was ok, the room was comfortable, maybe will need more appliances . The Business center was awful, the same as breakfast. Front desk staff very helpful and friendly. No ice machines, and the pool...

My husband and I stayed one night out of a planned 4 nights in the Cyrstal Suites Hotel in Panama City. We both had a very uncomfortabe feeling about the hotel. It was run down and eerie. It was not only "dated", it was unclean. I wouldn't have cooked anything in the kitchen we had and the only thing safe...

My daughter lives in Panama and we have stayed in a variety of hotels. Although older and not fancy, Crystal Suites Hotel had very good accommodations for us. The three of us stayed in a single room with a fully stocked kitchenette. The closet and dresser were spacious. The safe at first didn't work because we didn't know we had...

I have to agree with the others that this place needs some work. The furnishings are really dated and who wants to put their clothes in a old dresser with broken drawers? Throw them out!!!!! The front desk did that funny thing that has happened to me before. I told her my name for checking in, she looks and looks...

The hotel was clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The price, about $100 per night, for a very large two bedroom suite with a large sitting area and kitchen, was good. However, one important warning is in order. We traveled with our extended family, and the room my parents were in had a bad gas leak. This was...

I just got back from Panama. Our trip inlcluded 5 nights at the Crystal Suites and then three nights at the Gamboa Resort. I would NOT recommend the Crystal Suites. On the internet it looked like a very nice place to stay. NOT SO! It was a dive! I wouldn't even go barefoot in out shower or in the room!...
