The place has seen better days. In it's glory in the 60's it would have been fabulous but with time and Covid, and the deterioration of the surrounding area and building, the place is a tired old dump.

Staff very helpful and great location. Building outside needs some paint

Very big and clean hotel. Centrally located, walking distance to all local places.

Very nice people and place, rooms were spacious and clean, staff courteous walking distance to shopping and resturantd

The staff was very friendly, especially the bell boys Carlos and Eric, and in the front desk Jordan. I will continue to visit this hotel as it has the best pool within the city of Panama. In this opportunity, I had the entire pool for myself.

the service was terrible food was ok rooms unconfortable

it was fine overall, the only setback was that the toilet lever was broken

The hotel was very nice, the receptionist that was there that night told me I didn’t have a reservation, and didn’t know about Orbitz, finally all was solved when the manager came. The food was excellent, and the staff was good.

Renovations in progress. Water was cold but immediately fixed by hotel staff. Nice pool but music too loud for a Sunday. Friendly and helpful staff.

The only problem we had this time: there was NO hot water in in the facility for 2 days. Calling the front desk was a hassel. Otherwise room confort was superior and it was very clean

No cleaner, hair dry damage, coffe macker no work, no service cleaner, funiture dary, floor dury and look like a room that is no used long time. The room of this hotel is like 2 to 3 start.

Bad a/c first Room, leaking (water coming out everywhere) shower on second Room. Awesome restaurant, traditional pizzas.

My friends stayed elsewhere and always wanted to come to my hotel for swimming and meals. I even had fun with the front desk employees. Special thanks to Jezabel for extra help with my bags.

Classic hotel with great location in Panama City. Have to go back now that the subway is open since it will be easier to get around to other areas from Via Espana.
