I feel very sad about the American trade hotel! it is like an aging movie star! No staff. Two boys at the front desk,one very helpful the other wouldn’t take his eyes off his cell phone. No help with luggage. Not hot water no fresh towels even after we asked. Very sad how this gem has slowly lost its shine. There’s no bar the restaurant empty. No room services, I hate writing this because I have stayed here throughout the years.I’m sure the pandemic had a lot to do, but if the owners care they wont Let it sink.

The location of this hotel, in central Casco Viejo is perfect. Corner room offered great views, the room even had binoculars. The staff is super friendly and helpful There is one down side, the noise of loud music from the neighbourhood roof top bar, which is very loud on weekend nights. At first we wondered why there were earplugs in the room, but when Friday night came, we realised why. Also, we were there for 7 nights, and the wooden floor has not been swept once, it was very dirty and dusty towards the end of our stay

My 6-night stay was perfect, this hotel had everything my family and I needed to feel comfortable and welcome in Panama. There is much to see and explore around the hotel. The breakfast is very good as well as the cleaning and sanitization of the social areas. Highly recommended.

All in all, American Trade Hotel is an absolutely wonderful place to stay if you are going to Panama for tourism. The hotel staff was always willing to assist me and help me in whatever I needed. The hotel location is unbeatable, you will be in the heart of the historic part, also the best bars, restaurants and clubs in town are just a few steets away. Right in front of the hotel is the Herrera Square, the best tours depart from there so if you are a tour person consider that fact. I personaly love tours, also reccommend the Sightseeing Legends of casco viejo one, bookable here in TripAdvisor, Alex is a wonderful tour guide.

Despite a difficult arrival over the easter procession the staff was genuinely nice and advised on good restaurants around and things to see around the hotel. The room was large enough and the bathroom equipment very decent. The AC is somewhat noisy, but ok. The breakfast is served from 7am in the main lobby which is very well decorated, but staff is quite slow to serve early morning. Location-wise it is a perfect compromise in the old town and the bedding was very comfortable to sleep in. Thank you

The hotel has a great location. Truly great. The rooms can be good sized but the lower floor rooms have issues with hot water. Our first room had only tepid water for a shower. We asked and got another room. The hotel is old which has its charm but a l so some issues. But location is a 5 plus.

We had two different hotel stays here with lovely, comfortable rooms on top floors, with water views. Great to walk the streets of UNESCO Casco Viejo and experience the stores, restaurants, ambience, Canal Museum, restored Cathedral and new Mola museum. The American Trade hotel restaurant has very nice food choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

We stayed at the hotel over Easter 2022 and had high expectations after reading the reviews. Unfortunately, this place is overrated. The location is excellent for exploring Casco Viejo and the staff is friendly. The hotel though has no charge, the interior decoration is uninspired and appears indiscriminately, rooms are bare and dated. The whole hotel comes across as if a substantial makeover/renovation is immanent.Our key cards repeatedly seized operating the elevator and room door; the hallways have stairs difficult to maneuver with heavier luggage and no-one available to help.The pool is very small allowing for a dip of no more than one or two guests at a time. The whole rooftop area where the pool is located is uninviting, seems neglected and no food or drink service is being offered. For people sensitive to noise it's important to know that a church is right across with bells ringing often early in the morning. Overall, the hotel is overpriced compared to other accommodations in the area and we would not recommend to stay there.

Panama City, specificaly Casco Viejo has plenty of hotels and Airbnbs to stay but the American trade hotel has all in one place, it is so close to everything, right in the middle. Tours departs right in front of the hotel as well. Stuff is eficient and speaks perfect english, it is clean and safe. Definitely a great option to stay.

Very good stay in this exceptional boutique hotel over six nights in February and March. Tried a variety of rooms: super deluxe, garden suite, corner room, panorama. All but panorama had small but welcome balcony overlooking beautiful Plaza Herrera in the Casco Viejo. This part of the old town features well kept/restored 17th and 18th century buildings, several historic churches, parts of the old city wall and a plethora of restaurants, shops, several museums and music venues. Perfect base for exploring the city of Panama. Safety is assured, discreet police presence. My stay here was satisfying in many respects. Staff is professional yet sweet, kind, and on top of everything. The concierge is at the reception desk. We booked terrific tours through them. Responsive and knowledgeable. Some services have been curtailed due to covid. Coffee bar is closed, Jazz bar also but the main restaurant serves good coffee and is open for all meals until 9pm. The bar is open but sometimes you have to hunt up the barkeep at the reception desk or restaurant. Room service is available but you have to get a restaurant menu (not supplied in room, probably covid precaution), same fare. The cornmeal empanadas and yuca frita (fried yuca) highly recommended. Breakfast (included) features great fruit and coffee, so-so eggs with potatoes and bacon. Also granola, yogurt, juice. The ethos and decor here are fetching, attractive, relaxing, and convey the sense of a different place and time. There is a delicious library upstairs, be sure to check it out. Good place to play cards or board games. Climate control throughout the hotel is good, and that is welcome in the tropics. Bathrooms are super clean, large and well equipped, fabulous shower pressure. Nice toiletries. Towels could use a thickness upgrade. Rooms are spacious and uncluttered, lovely. Nespresso-type pod coffee maker, plenty of bottled water. There is a small fridge but not stocked due to covid. I urge travelers to eschew the big-brand hotels in favor of this atmospheric gem.
