Stayed here for one night and was satisfied with my stay. I like the location of the hotel as it was on Argentina, which had a park not too far away also a lot of restaurants to choose from. It also wasn't too far away from the public subway, always a plus.

This was a very good hotel as far as service, location, price and cleanliness. However, I had a room next to the street. BIG mistake!! There is a restaurant across the street that operates until 2:00 am during the week and 4:00 am on weekends. This makes it impossible to sleep if you are in one of those rooms. If...

Very clean and quiet room on 3rd floor. Nice reception area. Good working fridge and coffeemaker. No hot water on shower. Hotel is near everything. Private parking, small space but ok. Will visit again.

I only stayed one night, but found the service good and the place was very comfortable, there are lots of restaurants and bars around to go out. They also arranged a taxi for me to take me to the canal and then drop me off at the airport.

This is a nice hotel. They advertise themselves as a "boutique" hotel, which makes sense. We stayed here our first night in Panama, but it doesn't really give that special feel for the country. I liked the place. The people are friendly and spoke excellent English (thank you for that!). But it is a basic place to stay and there...

My 2 friends and I stayed at the Doubletree Hilton 8 days with a group we came with then moved over to here. We preferred the Saba. !! It is small, super clean big rooms and in a great neighborhood. 3 of us shared a room and we loved how big it was, room 305. AC worked fine, nice bathroom,...

Pros: does have hot water, although takes a while to come on, staff is fairly nice and accomodating, great location! Cons: info online about complimentary breakfast was misleading and then upon getting to the hotel created confusion. Hotel rooms fairly clean but I found some gross hair in the bathroom. All in all, at this price point you can do...

Stayed after arriving in the city, the hotel arranged a taxi for us $30 and the lovely Gabriel was waiting for us at arrivals. We had a 7' foot surfboard with us and he didn't mind fitting it in. The taxi drivers like to tell you cool stuff along the way and Gabriel didn't disappoint even stopping for a photo...

The location is amongst the best in Panama City, easy to go out of town on excursions from this location, their free parking is a huge plus. The rooms were roomy and very clean. Did not experience breakfast as there are a lot of great inexpensive options nearby. Excellent experience overall and good quality for value.

“Don't let them give you room 301 - it is a room in the interior of Hotel. The window is to the hallway.”

“Try for a room on a high floor on right side (when facing hotel) as rooms on the other side face another building so there is limited light.”
