Standard hotel at the main street. They have small rooms, the beds were fine, but the shower was most of the time not warm. We did our laundry over there, but al the stains were still in it. It did smell fresh do.... The staff is very friendly and there's someone at the reception 24/7. A fine place to stay... More

Really surprised to see so many great reviews. Rooms are tiny, walls are paper thin and there was basically no hot water for the three nights we stayed there. Located on the noisiest street of Bocas. Other surprises included lack of towels one day and a power outage another (although this did affect the entire downtown area). Not great value... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Laguna Hotel. Good prices, clean and big room and really confortables beds. We had a few problems with hot water in the shower but it happens island wide from what i heard. And a really nice restaurant just next door (el pecado). Just perfect!

If you want a affordable, clean, comfortable and a good service hotel, this is the best choice you will find on the island. Just avoid going on panama national holidays because the island feels overcrowded and the hotel sometimes cant keep up with all the influx of guests. If you have trouble or any inquiry about the hotel or the... More

Initially, Hotel Laguna was not my first choice because being a hotel their prices might be too high for a seasoned backpacker as myself, but was recommended by a source and later learned after a series of email correspondence their prices were reasonable and provided security within the room. Felix, the Administrator General, was also very sensitive toward my situation... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the experience. The hotel is conveniently located downtown, close to restaurants, boat tours/taxis, and a grocery store. There is a giant building being constructed across the street so the view wasn't so great and the noise was a little unbecoming while trying to have a peaceful breakfast. But that's not the hotel's... More

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is really nice and clean and the rooms are really comfortable. The only complaint would be how loud the air conditioning is. We had to move rooms after the first night because in our first room it was sooo loud, sounded like an aeroplane was in our room and caused the walls... More

The hotel and management were just fine for the price range. Yes you have to have ear plugs BUT you also can get a deck with a view of the main street and the park plus you are in the middle of the town with access to everything. Why walk when a clean, a/c room with good management is right... More

I stayed at the hotel 2 days, February 27-28, 2012. This hotel is right in the middle of everything you need : tour operators, restaurants, groceries, bank, bus, taxis! Prices are really good.
