This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in anywhere (and I travel a lot). The beds and pillows were like clouds, the bathroom was beautiful and they all have soaking tubs! The staff was extremely helpful and nice. And I cannot say enough about Paulie, the bartender in the downstairs bar. This bar also has outside seating and the cocktails are great! This hotel also has a spa and we had facials. They were good and not too pricey. The hotel is centrally located to everything or is a quick Uber trip away. The restaurant on the 5th floor is good, but unless you are exhausted, I would not recommend for dinner. Breakfast is fine. There is also a bar in the restaurant. The W hotel is across the street and there is a great French bistro in the bottom of the building called Paul. Great for breakfast. Also, the hotel arranged everything for our Covid testing to re-enter the USA. They came to our room to do the test. Extremely convenient!

Hotel's Favourite
Our corner room was extremely comfortable. It was well appointed; plenty of space to unpack and hang our belongings. The bed was divine. The staff was very helpful with directions and advice. We used uber to get around. It didn't feel like there was much to see in this neighborhood; the hotel has a good location, but it seemed like a business district. The breakfast buffet was included in our room. There were many choices as well as omelets made to order. Excellent coffee

I am fairly picky with details when I stay at a hotel. I started staying at the Bristol in Panama around 2003 when the hotel had 54 rooms, the service was great including a personalized butler, the food was excellent, your shoes could be shined overnight just by placing them outside your door, and the spa was fabulous. Now, the hotel is larger and the restaurant is in the tower, but the hotel maintains its super-high-quality overal,l and its devotion to each guest. It's the details that count. In these days of Covid, the hotel's previous practice of keeping the hotel clean required little updating, but I am sure the management has done everything it can. Masks are everywhere now. The bathrooms are still wonderfully large, with great towels, rheostat-controlled lighting, huge bathtubs, and all the accouterments that you would want, in case you forgot something. The beds are fabulous, close to those at The Langham (worldwide), the air conditioning is nearly silent, there is an overhead light in the clothes closet, the desk is comfortable, and there are sufficient electric outlets so you can charge all the electronics in your luggage. On this last visit, we had the chance to stay at a new hotel recommended by the wedding party, but when in Panama, there is nothing better than the Bristol. And it was cheaper!!

Dear Robert W, Thank you so much for this thoughtful comment. It really fills us with pride when repeated guests, like yourself, take a moment out of their day to point out the reasons why Bristol is their home away from home. Knowing we have earned the spot of your favorite hotel in Panama City, that is indeed a great accomplishment for us. We can't wait to be able to welcome you back in a near future!

The staff at the front desk was very accommodating as we were a walk-in. The rooms was spacious and very clean. We had breakfast and drinks in the lobby bar, both experiences were top notch. Highly recommend the Bristol Hotel.
