Stayed 1 1/2 days and overnight. The first impression was very good. Beautiful garden, nice location on the sea, amazing entry hall. Personnel barely speaks English and not all of them seem very enthusiastic about their work. The room where I stayed was acceptable, nothing more. If you're not the adventurous type, try something else. Wifi only worked in public...

Here is your unique chance to stay at a Colonial Grand Hotel at a true basement bargain rate! Mind you, don't expect a five-star Hilton, but this majestic hotel still shows shadows of her glorious past. Warning, located in not the best part of Colon, travel by taxi after dark.

This hotel was much older than I thought . It really could use a major update . With all the upgrades going on in Colon it could really use some major work . Business wise with the room keys etc. the staff is very nice and the room was comfortable but I was not as comfortable with the openness of...

This place is run down, dingy, and in a pretty bad neighborhood! We went to view the sunset and was hoping for a restaurant with a view! No such luck and wouldn't have eaten at the place anyway! We ended up ordering a beer and some microwave popcorn at the pool bar and that was the only highlight! $4 for...

still one of my favorite hotels in colon...maybe it because I like old buildings with amazing history...it's by no stretch of the imagination a 5 star hotel but one can feel the spirit of is grandiose back in the early 1900s when it was the accommodation of choice for the engineers and financiers of the Panama canal while in its...

Only had breakfast here. The entire place was sad and past its prime. The food was very plain and one dish was disgusting. I finished my pancakes but parents were very unhappy. Waitstaff was nice but reception was un inviting. Sadly, I would not recommend unless you like some adventure.

We were doing a day trip in Colon and stopped at the Washington Hotel for breakfast. The gardens in the front of the hotel are very well cared for and the owners have done an admirable job in remodeling the ground floor of the hotel. (We did not stay overnight or venture upstairs.) The hotel's location at the mouth of...

I stayed here for only one night. The hotel looks good from the outside and view of the sea was nice. But when i entered the room, there were dirt on the floor and the toilet was not cleaned enough. The foods on the restaurant took a very long time to prepare. On the bright side, the wifi was all...

Colon must be where Neil Young wrote "Keep on Rocking in the Free world". Took a taxi from the Cruise Terminal. Colon is like the old Havana with attitude. 10 times worse than Harlem in the 60's. It is definitely edgy and decrepit -which is eye opening. Never have I seen so much street litter and rubbish. We could see...

Our stay was short. We checked in at 11:30 am and out at 4pm.... Same day. We spent the afternoon having lunch in the hotel's restaurant, walking the grounds to view its crumbling facade, and interior public space. The Spectacle of canal shipping moving past its waterfront is quite impressive. Amazingly, there's a grounded vessel resting alongside the hotels sea...
