No tea or coffee making facilities which i find very poor considering I paid 151 euros per night without breakfast... Couldn't stomach paying for breakfast on top and to be... More

The Executive Hotel is centrally located in the business district of Panama City. It is near restaurants and shopping ... however, there is also a bar and restaurant on the property. Others have complained about the internet ... but I think this is common for Panama. This is a quieter neighborhood for the business district ... but you will still... More

We tried the Executive on a friends recommendation. It has a great location and is inexpensive. It is in easy walking distance of many restaurants, clubs and casinos. It is very clean and the staff is quite helpful. We will definitely stay at the Executive again!

Excelent hotel for you to take as an HQ to travel the rest of the city and its surroundings. It is centric and very close to the metro station which is definitely a plus. Breakfast was nice and the bed was comfortable.

Well finally I cancelled. Thanks to the receptionist. Picture and location looked great, but the picture showing the best time of the hotel couple of years ago. Being there seeing heavy construction work/ renovation going on. Wifi on/ off, elevator off. I did not feel to spend my time there. But situation may change fast, after renovation.
