Nice city hotel

Chose this hotel for a one night stay in Panama City for the location as we needed to be close to El Dorado. The room and bathroom were clean, beds were super comfortable and breakfast buffet was fine.

Needs Management Attention

For the price, the hotel was not a good value. The physical condition of the hotel needs updating and maintenance to avoid the kind of problems I and a colleague experienced. My second night, I could not get into my room because the electronic door lock malfunctioned. I had to wait an hour and a half until someone attempted to open the door from the outside and finally got into the room through a window. I would have expected the hotel to graciously offer a courtesy dinner while waiting for the lock to be fixed but they just suggested that I go out to eat or wait in the lobby. My colleague's room did not have hotwater for two days despite having reported the problem several times. The heater should have been fixed immediately. Overall, the management of the hotel needs to pay serious attention to improving the physical state of the property and to better train staff on how to meet guests needs.

PANAMA

Very very good. Only complaint is that they would not give me a receipt on check out. The girl at the counter stated that i needed to get it from Orbitz, but I have never had this problem at other hotels. Even when I have booked with Orbitz. Athough the limmited service was good, the other problem I had was with the cleaning women not knocking nor paying attention to the "do not disturb" sign. Otherwise, very good

Great staff

First visit ever to this Hotel which was recommended by friends. Centrally located in El Dorado area and $1.50 to $2.50 cab fare from pretty much anywhere in the city of Panama. Room was clean, comfortable bed, very decent breakfast, and extremely polite and English speaking staff. Only issue was that there wasn't any hot water upon arrival (12am) so I had to take a cold shower. Called the front desk in the morning and within 5 minutes a repair person knocked on my door and fixed the problem. Wished I had done so the night before but was exhausted from spending the whole day traveling. Probably what you would expect for a < $100.00 a night hotel. T.G.I.F. restaurant is attached to the hotel. Shopping and other restaurants are walking distance. Panama Canal 5 to 10 minutes away by car (Taxi).

Still under construction and repair

This hotel was fine but there was still construction and repair underway. The room was clean and spacious and the AC worked well. It comes with cable TV and a coffee maker. Nothing wrong with the property for the price. The location is relatively convenient to the Tocumen airport but the neighborhood is spotty. There is an excellent Italian restaurant named Tres Scalini across the street.

We ate at Tres Scalini three times in nine days and it was exellent each time. Walk across the street from the hotel to enjoy. The hotel also has a TGI Friday's which looked good.
