Continental Hotel and Casino

The location was great, They gave us a very large room, it was designed for handicap persons, which we are not. The housekeeping was very good, had one problem with toilet that got fixed after second try. Restaurant service and food were good, reasonable in price. Bar and lounge was on schedules that were not listed, never knew when it was going to open. Pool area was very nice. Our son tried numerous times to contact us through the Hotel number and could not get the operator to answer. We also tried contacting the hotel by phone for the shuttle service from airport and could not get a response. We told the Staff at hotel about it but no reason was given why this happened. Casino attached was not a good experience, slot machines not maintained, not an inviting place.

Excellent Hotel FOR THE PRICE!

I am Panamanian and I know my ways around Panama, and I can assure you that no other hotel in the city will beat this one, Price, location and great bi-lingual staff. Now if the price is not a problem and you are into all the extra bells and whistles, their are plenty of option near by.

Just okay

The hotel location was just horrible. There is really nothing to do in the area. The pool was dirty and the jacuzzi was not bubbling correctly. This hotel literally depressed me everytime I returned to the room. If you're young visiting Panama and want an upbeat atmosphere i do not recommend. If you're older and just want to relax sure because it is very quite. I discovered that there isn't much to do in Panama. I had to change my flight within 2 days of my stay.

Great Experience for the Price

I flew into Panama City late. The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and willing to help me at the late hour. The room was very large, clean, and I had a very nice view of the city. The breakfast buffet the next morning was excellent. They had a varied choice of food and the atmosphere was comfortable.

Clean, centrally located

This hotel is situated right next to the Iglesia Del Carmen metro station. It was so easy going everywhere. Trains are efficient, safe, clean and ridiculously cheap ($0.35 per trip). Spent less time haggling with taxi drivers, which is an aggravating experience since they love to scam tourists. Hotel room was refurbished recently, so it was wonderfully clean and modern. I especially love the powerful rainfall shower. Food is easy to get. Restaurants are all around the hotel so you'll never get hungry. There is also a 24 hour supermarket (El Rey) a block away.

Nice Hotel

This is a nice hotel in a decent location - pretty central, although it's still necessary to take cabs almost everywhere b/c the city is not walkable. We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very pleasant.

All the people at the hotel great people makes you feel confirtable exept for the people at the casino, they don greet you, the cafe shop they talk more between them than serving people, we sat down for 25 minites never were asked if we needed something, finaly we call someone and requested a coffe then we had service. Other that that front desk excellent, door bell great.
