all is very good, only Internet not working very well in the room

Everybody was very nice, front desk, bartender, the lady at the breakfast. Very helpful and nice

Nice hotel, the front desk is friendly and helpful. Nice location but the streets around the hotelhave been under construction for a long time. Breakfast was only just okay.

Nice hotel, a little small pool, clean rooms, moderate breakfast, good service.

Good location, close to new subway station, clean room and friendly staff

I stayed at this hotel with two friends several nights, while going back and forth between the islands and Panama city, and had a great experience every single time.The front desk personal and the bellman were great, super helpful. We even got back from Bocas del Toro at 6am, and they allowed us to check in at 7am! The hotel is located just 3 blocks away from the metro station, and also really close from the Multiplaza mall. We always felt supper safe, walking to/from the hotel. The breakfast buffet was really good too. It was an overall great experience.

Great! I met several of the staff members they were great. I want to Thank Yamilet in housekeeping for being so nice and kind. I'd stay there again as long as I can afford it.....

I've stayed here 3 nights on my retreat/work visit to Panama. Was able to get a daily rate of $65-70 for the stay and PTY cab driver took me right to the place. Ihad a large double with an ok view on 8th floor. Cable tv features 10+ movie/5 news channelsIf you want the neighborhood feel of Cangrejo all the famous low heeled eateries are near buy. (Skip Tropiche except for breakfast.) The rooftop bar/pool is nice for a drink or outdoor time but the pool is an extended kiddie's lane re depth and capacity to swim. It competes with bar for space Only complaint: toilet seat and fan in bathroom didnt work properly. If relative choices are Tryp or Novotel--this is the better option.

This hotel was awesome! Very accommodating and new. It's right in the city so easy to get around. My only complaint was the shower floor is kind of gross. So make sure you bring shower shoes! Also, for some reason when they would replace the towels they would never bring wash clothes, just towels. And there aren't too many English speaking workers so make sure you know the native tongue. Other than that, it looks just like the pictures! Great pool panoramic view. I would certainly recommend and will most likely be back.

Su personal muy atento a las atenciones de los huéspedes. Muy bien todo.

Me encanto el hotel y más aún el buen tracto y amabilidad del personal. Exelente servicio. Allá volveré de nuevo. Gracias por hacerme sentir como un verdadero vip
