Do Not Ever Stay Here (for the price)

I just checked in, saw my room, then left for another hotel (even though I could not get a refund). The elevators, hallways and rooms were hot and smelly. Shame on [...] for allowing their 'No Refund' policy. This hotel has to know that EVERYONE who pays over $100.00 per night would leave as soon as they see what is offered at that price. Total BS.If it were priced at $40.00-$50.00, it would be fine for a night or two of BUDGET travel. I paid over $100.00 per night. There are many, many similar rooms (that is to say old, hot and smelly) in Panama city for half the price of this hotel.

Serious Error on Web Site - NO SHUTTLE

Web site says it is 1.3 miles from Airport - it is not Web site says airport shuttle - NO Cab cost $35 Hotel was nice enough and staff was helpful but in absolute denial about the shuttle. How do you argue. Primary reason for staying at this hotel was the promised shuttle. It was a significant disappointment and unexpected expense.

just good location

The rooms were clean but the beds didn't have bedspreads, couldn't place phone calls without having to pay a deposit, this hotel doesn't have a fitness room as listed, it was old inside, have not been renovated as stated on the ad. When I got there no one helped me carry my luggage on the stairs. The people in the cafeteria were not friendly, the food was not that great.

Clean, friendly. Not for business

It's well located near calle 50. The food is good. I recommend the Greek salad. Avoid the fried calamari. I travel for business and their wireless internet ibuffet poor. Everyone is friendly. The pool is pretty nice. The casino is small and dark. Elevator was out of service. They forgot my wake-up call. I would not stay at the Granada again.

Orbitz and Hotel Clash

We had 3 in our group, registered by Orbitz. The hotel stated that Orbitz had only paid them for 2 people. We were allowed to continue in the room. I emailed customer support from Orbitz and it took them 2 days of bickering back and forth to correct the problem. They told me to contact the hotel even though I had told them in the email sent to customer service.

Don't pay hotel for long distance calls or internet use. Right across the street is a cybercafe that was extremely nice, spoke English, and cheap. Calls and internet very reasonable. He even has drinks and some light snacks.
