Le Meridien bills itself as a luxury hotel but it isn't. The pool deck is littered with cigarette butts and bird do covered the the railings. The pool toilets had no toilet paper, no hand soap or paper towel. The front desk receptionist didn't know the hotel's phone number or the location of their business centre. Our room had a...

As a solo traveler, one of my reasons for choosing a hotel when traveling, my safety, specially in my hotel. Le Meridien offered that, location and personnel wise. The property is very clean, centrally located, in a very safe area of the city. Most cites are close, either by walking or a short taxi drive. Everyone at the hotel is...

I stayed here for a short business trip. The hotel is very nice, breakfast was good, and the staff very friendly. It is within walking distance of many things to do in the area. Will stay here again when I'm in Panama.

Overall the hotel is a good option. It doesn't send a good message the fact that 6 out of 10 employees don't have a name tag but a " trainee " one. High turnover maybe? Despite that people in general has good customer service which unfortunately is not very common in Panama. Room very comfortable, location is great.. right on...

After my stay, I can understand the variance in reviews this property has received. First, pro's: the hotel is very well situated between the colonial portion of the city and the exotic downtown, and right on the Pacific Ocean. It made seeing the various sites much easier than other locations might have been. Customer service was good and more friendly...

Le Meridien has a very good location, at Balboa Ave. The room is enormous, the bed very comfortable , and everything is very clean. The room has a great view, and also the mezzanine (6th floor). The breakfast is fair, convenient.

This hotel has a great location at Avenida Balboa overseeing the Pacific Ocean and with easy access to the entertainment districts of Panama City. It is based on the first six floors of a high-rising building so it doesn't offer the spectacular view over the city. The suites are comfortable and large but lack the luxury touch. The restaurant offers...
