Right on Panama Canal

Watch the ships enter and leave the Panama Canal from your balcony (pay only 15$ extra to get canal view room; well worth it). Also, if you will be taking the ferry to Contador Island in the Pearl Islands you can walk to the ferry dock from the hotel. Hotel has a TGI Fridays connected; outside and inside dining (English/Spanish menu, but don't expect the wait staff to speak or understand english)

Hotel not near anything

The room was clean however it was poorly organized. The breakfast was horrible. There was only once choice of places to eat. The menu got really small. The hotel is not unique and the cost of transportation to places of interest with the hotel taxi service was extremely expensive. This hotel is highly over rated and not worth the price considering the cost of transportation.

There are many things to see and places to visit. Make sure that you get an English speaking taxi driver who does not over charge you and one who knows the places of interest. Many places hire workers that do not speak English and that is frustrating if you do not speak Spanish.

One night in Panama City

I had one night in Panama City after spending 4 days on an island in San Blas. Having arrived early to the hotel (slightly before noon), the staff was very friendly and quick to accommodate my request for an early check-in. The room was big, clean and cool. And the location is probably the best in the city - views of the canal and the bridge, close to the national airport and the Casco Viejo and very safe.
