It is average, not terrible, nor grand. The side of town may be questionable but if you are travelling to the city of Panama and want to see the heartbeat of Panama, than this might be it for you. (The heartbeat as in the poor, working hard, trying to survive atmosphere, not trying to beautify it.) The Wifi worked well... More

Could work better the rooms, aircondition is noizy and old. Do not have breakfest and you need to get food from the bar. It is not for businessman. Do not get upper rooms because internet is freaking slow...does not matter what they do, it will remain slow. If rains,does not work at all...

I tend to give places the benefit of the doubt and brush off bad reviews...but I'm very disappointed in this place. 1. The location is NOT great. It's in the bad part of town. 2. There is from transport FROM the airport but not TO. On top of that, when I got an email back from the hotel about it,... More

A little bit dirty, old, window almost doesn't work - but the bed is comfortable and air condition works great. In the end it's a cheap hotel - I would come back. Some locals scared us that the district is dangerous and after 20 we should stay inside. Other Panamanians told us later it's a lie, however I would risk.... More

My first impression was that the two women working the front desk were not very nice. Cold and very unhelpful. The checked us in without any conversation and took a long time for the process. They never spoke to us until they handed us the key. The lobby was air conditioned but as soon as we checked in with our... More

The room was at least clean and the hot water worked fine. Internet was also available in our room. The room had a window. There is no real airport transfer as they mention in the web. The latest transfer they could arrange was at 2pm while our flight was at 9pm. The AC was horrible. It was so loud, that... More

I stayed one night there in August. I had booked a room online for $35, and my very late arrival did not cause any check-in problem. Let me start with the downside of the hotel. The elevator either did not exist or work, and I had to walk up to the sixth floor. There was no food or even a... More

The place seemed reasonably clean, but the elevators were broken. The other side of the hotel, the 'pension' leads to a common hallway, and that charges by the hour, but i the rooms for the less reputable 'pension' side and the 'hotel' side are shared. I laid down for about an hour in the night then woke up, and my... More
