We arrived very early in the morning at 2 am at the hotel without reservation. However, it was possible to check-in without any problems. The conditions of the hotel were insufficient. Rooms were very small and dirty. In case for a short stop over this hotel is ok.

2 Mares is a hotel that is in the middle of downtown Panama....It has a restaurant next door and has seven floors. I arrived at Dos Mares at about Midnight and was surprised to meet two persons at the reception all smiley and courteous. The hotel is an older property so a lot of stuff does not work the way it should the AC is controlled from front desk and hot and cold water work great. The beds were comfortable but because the property is downtown it is a bit noisy . Great for the price.The front desk personnel were always helpful and they go above and beyond.

Where to start....no parking. The elevator doors close on you. No shampoo in the rooms. If you get a good deal you don't get breakfast included. Odd smell Old and poorly maintained. And yes cockroaches.

The good: The staff is wonderful, nice and very helpful! Great location to be in the culture of the city and very close to the new modern area of Panama City! Close grocery store, local resturants and bars. A lot of police presence which is very good! The bad: Not enough towels, no hand towels, the wi-fi is poor, no small side table lamps, no bath mats, no inside security locks....and sometimes the roaches come out at night!

This hotel is great if you are looking for some place to stay that is affordable. It's really close to the big shopping malls and the less extravagant ones. (bare in mind that the latter has aewsome deals $3.99 and up on blouses and $5.99 and up on jeans for men and women!) yards away from the hotel and they're fully air conditioned also! It's best to take a taxi for $1 and change to reach them if you don't know the area well. The majority of people who come to Panama are actually looking for great deals in shopping any way, never mind the class of hotel your staying at! Try places like "El Champion" or "El Machetaso" for shopping. some of them are right next to each other and they're literally faced right against the streets! The hotel offers *free* breakfast every morning from 7-10am! you have a choice of Scrambled eggs and a slice of toasted french bread, tomato sauteed sausages/w onions and green peppers again with a slice of toasted french bread, pancakes and scrambled eggs with your choice of orange juice or hot tea. it's a life saver, because you won't find any decent restaurants near the area but you could also try at your own risk (my opinion differs from yours!)....you'll have to look up the directory for decent restaurants or head to the bigger malls or even ask at the front desk. My stay at the hotel was decent, the room was equipped with A/C, A flat screen t.v, wi-fi, fresh towels every evening and soap bars. the price you pay is what you get! If location and great deals on shopping is what you're targeting then Dos Mares is the hotel for you.

The place was in a dirty run down part of town. Our flight got in late, we were tired, couldn't find the place. The lady was super nice checking us in. The room was super plain, sorta clean,tv didn't work, no shampoo or anything extra. We didn't want to shower there. Very noisy outside, but we were exhausted from travel. Did include a breakfast which wasn't anything to write home about. I would not stay in this place again.

If they want to charge American prices, they should provide American amenities. I can get a cheap motel in the States with more to offer. The air conditioner blew warm air, there is one outlet available that is 6 ft. up the wall, the toilet didn't flush, there was a desk with no chair, no toiletries, iron, trash can, coffee pot or ANYTHING! There are no hand towels or wash rags and my window faced a dark alley. BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT-we selected this hotel because it offered a shuttle to the airport. Priceline fails to tell you that it is $30/person. I can't wait to return to the good ol' USA!!!

I used to enjoy the low cost/good service of this place. Recnt "remodel" lobby and soem TV's in the rooms has increased the price from $38 to $48. BUT, last two times i was there i was very disapointed. 1'st i ordered room service. 2 hours later the food came and it was cold. i sent it back last time, the shower had no shower head, but the worse was the shower door leaked, so the room flooded. I called the desk and asked for new towels because i had used origianl set for the flood. The towels never came. I used the bed sheet to dry my self after the mornign shower and will never step inside that place again.
