Great location on the plaza. Nice staff. Pleasantly surprised at the large, clean rooms for the price. Good A/C and comfortable beds. We are often in David for errands, shopping, etc... Will return to Hotel Castilla when we are back in David.

Hotel Castilla staff were polite and efficient. The room was on the second floor, and there is no elevator, but we knew this before booking and it was not a problem for us. The A/C in the room worked well, and made a sort of white noise to drown out any other sounds that there may have been, so we...

We can in the middle of a storm 8/12 and the staff helped us park and get our luggage out and up the stairs. They went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect! We went down to the restaurant which is a hidden gem and had some of the best chicken and mushrooms with fried plantains I...

Best modern hotel we stayed in during our 18 day trip to Panama. Hot shower, A/C, nicely decorated rooms and very clean. Thought the underground parking in the building made it easy to go in and out during our three day stay. There is no elevator if you have an issue with stairs that could be a problem...I looked at...

We had the pleasure of staying in Hotel Castilla during our recent visits to our doctors at the Hospital Chiriqui. We found it to be clean, convenient to shopping and the hospital, nice sized rooms, excellent showers and an attached restaurant with a wide variety of meals from which to choose. We will be coming to David again in another...

I am a US citizen and hold a Panamanian resident card. I regularly stay at the Castilla for value price, security, and a peaceful atmosphere. As mentioned many times before the Castilla has clean rooms, although they are bit small if you are travelling with a companion. For those who are somewhat physically challenged, you need to be aware that...

I like this place! It's clean and modern and right downtown for only $39 (single room). It has real hot water and a good restaurant too! My choice if I ever have to stay in David again.

We checked 2 hotels: 4* Hotel “Nacional” - $93 per 2 pp room, $126 for 4 pp room included breakfast buffet, pool,...

Hotel Castilla is located right in the center of David . The double room ( double bed plus a single bed) provided is comfortable but a bit cramped compared to Canadian hotel rooms. It would help if they got rid of the single bed . A good shower system with hot and cold water , and supply of 2 thick...
