This hotel was conveniently located within walking distance to the Metro station. It's a bit out of the way from Casco Viejo, which required metro transit or uber rides to get to and from. The hotel staff we're very friendly and helpful. There's a convenience store right beside the hotel which was great for buying a SIM card and snacks. We stayed four nights in which the restaurant was being renovated during our stay, but was ready on the last night we were there.

Liked · Nothing went well, the only positive aspect which was actually the reason why I picked this property, is that the room was very large and spacious but itself was not enough to compensate the overall disaster. Disliked · Everything!!! Staff -barely speaking english and not helpful at all. The hotel was the only hotel who refused by HSBC Premium Visa and they were not able to provide any alternative solution, not even a normal bank transfer. Facilities - there was a single furniture or appliance in my room which was in DECENT conditions. I firstly was assigned to room 906 but since BOTH the kitchen since and the toilet were broken, they moved us to 908. LUCKILY was in the same florr since no one from the staff came to help us into moving 12 luggages from one room to the other. Additionally, in the "new room" the fridge was broken so we wasted some food when we discovered that everything was warm inside. Compensation? Discount? Aplogies? a coupon for a breakfast? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FROM THE STAFF Cleanliness - all the walls, the windows, the curtains, the sheets, the floors and so one were dirty from dust, paint, different black/brown/white tracks. Sheets with dots, sofas with black stains, floor with paint, bed top covered in dust. Look at the state of the iron table or the coffe machine and tell me about cleanliness. Comfort - the bed were set as queen but were obviously full since we could barely fit in two. Value for money - the 800€ worst spent in my whole life, when I travel I specifically select only 4 stars hotel for a reason and this hotel was absolutely disgusting Bonus question - How was the view from your room? - street and lots of cigarettes under my window as you can see, despite the room was for nonn-smokers Bonus question - Kitchen facilities. First room cold water in the sink broken, I had to burn my hands to clean couple of cups. There was barely 2 forks and one mug despite the room was allocated for3-4 adults, in the first room we did not even have a coffe machine and in the second one the fridge was broken as said.

Good location close to restaurants but Reception is terrible. Milna Diaz was rude and not accommodating at all. We wasted over 1h15 trying to get in our room. Once check-in, the key to our door did not work, the A/C was not working, no remote control in the room. Another hour waiting to settle in. Horrible... We only stayed ONE night and for that we (4 people) were very happy. You pay for what you get I guess.

Already stayed there a couple of times and would stay there again. Well located in the middle of the hustle and bustle evening foodie street, easy to locate by everyone. Is advertised as four stars (hmm I would say 3 superior) has adjacent oriental restaurant, an outdoor pool, tour desks and car park (highly appreciated). There are lots and lots of hotels in this city from very cheap ones (but also located in very undesireable areas and some if well located have doubtful management/staff issues) to obvious upscale ones. Found the rooms clean, with clean sheets and towels, basic with no frills. Everytime got the front rooms with large windows, so nice to watch the nearby city lights. Staff service was OK, just doing their job. They close the hotel with key after midnight but always there is the nightwatch in case a guest makes late night. If visiting Panama again, most probably would stay there again.

The hotel decided to cancelled my booking done through booking.com without previous notification. After more than 36 hours travel time, the only thing you want is to arrive at the hotel and sleep, however, when I arrived at the hotel with my 3 suitcases I was told that they cancelled my booking and that I have to look for another hotel and organize my own transport.

Absolutely awful! Someone came into my room in the middle of the night! I thought I was being robbed. The person said they worked for the hotel and they made a mistake. I told the staff about it the next morning and they didn’t seem to care! They acted annoyed that I even brought it up. Unacceptable!

The staff were so helpful here when we lost luggage and had to try to get it back from the airline before a connecting flight the next day. The hotel is clean, comfortable and is in a good location near lots of nice restaurants. Air con is appreciated in the Panama weather. Excellent value for money.
