Hotel Panama

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location is good, but a little far of downtown and main attractions (from 15 to 20 minutes walk). The staff are very helpful and very good providing directions and assistance. The air conditioning worked very well for the very hot days that we stayed in Florence.

This hotel is a little out of the central Florence area (15 minute walk) but the 13 bus runs right by from the central station. The staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and provide great advice for restaurants, sight seeing and general help. The breakfast is typical European with some cereals and toast and one hot drink (pay for the subsequent ones). A small hotel, the rooms vary greatly. Mine was spacious as well as a well laid out bathroom. Another I saw was wasn't as good so try and choose if possible. Finally, this hotel had air conditioning which was a must have in the hot days when I stayed.

Nice time spent in Florence looking at all the monuments present in the city center. The hotel is good for families with children with comfortable room. The fare is well justified by the strategic position allowing to go to the city center walking.

had a 3 day break at this hotel and was very disappointed. The room we had was right on the main road so we had all the noise of the traffic and sirens all night long. Plus we could smell the fumes from the traffic in our room asked to be moved but told will have to wait till morning. we were moved next day but to a room with no windows so very dark and very small Very claustophic. shower in first room very small and couldnt even turn around in it hotel should be re classed as guest house as very basic Only redeeming factor was the breakfast which was okay Only light in second room was from a couple of bedside lamps but at least traffic noise was a bit less

The hotel is not the closest one to the city center, it is in 15-20 minutes of walking distance to the cathedral, to the central train station and T1 tram terminal station. There are some bus stops close to the hotel, we did not try, but it can be used if needed. The amenities are average; the bathroom was too small for a standard room. As of Feb 2017 breakfast is 7.5, parking is 18€/day, daily towel change is 5€.

The hotel is located nearby to the main attraction. The city centre would be around a 15 min drive. The pricing is reasonable. The food is good too. The rooms are nice and spacious. The staff is good and the service was prompt.

This hotel could be described as basic and indeed this would be true, however it has a beautiful rustic charm that boasts good value for money. Attic room cosy however shower over toilet a little uncomfortable. Very clean.

The room was spacious with a comfortable bed. Central air conditioning was great and made it enjoyable stay in the room while the outside temperature was 37 degrees. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was excellent. The city center is a 20-minute walk from the hotel.We had a room on the first floor, facing the street and it was very pleasant to sleep because there was no noise. Very quiet place. All recommendations.

We selected this hotel based on reviews and hotels web site. This hotel is not as close to any attractions and is a min 30 min walk. Bad smell, mosquitoes, ineffective a/c were the highlights of the hotel during our stay. Breakfast menu was not good. AND this was the most expensive hotel for the value it provided. In my opinion they should close down for a complete renovation😡

The staff at Hotel Panama were very accommodating. We arrived early and they were able to hold onto our luggage before we could check in. Our cab driver had given us a map, but the concierge said he had a better one and pointed out how to get into the city centre as well as the popular spots to visit. We had a triple room. There was a cute balcony with a table and chairs. The bathroom was tiny, which is expected, but a bigger shower would have been nice. The room was outdated, but it had everything we needed.Wifi was decent compared to what we experienced in other hotels in Italy.
