The staff was very cordial and willing to help. Provided good tips on how to seven money and stay save in the area.

Pésima recepción de internet, falta de orientación al huésped por parte de la recepción.

I chose this hotel for the price, i wasn't expectign to much; however i got a good surprise based on price it was more than expected, good room, nice bed the instalations need a little work but they are doing it. so it was a nice stay

Great location in Panama City. The hotel was clean, and breakfast buffet was good. The service can be better.

Over all was a very nice experience I will stay again and recommend it again n again

The price that we got in ORBITZ was a real good deal.

It is close to the subway and several restaurants. Nice attention from the hotel staff, great food. Very comfortable overall

The staff at the hotel is extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is more than what we expected for the price- the lobby is beautiful, our rooms were comfortable, clean and nice, and had all the amenities we needed. Great location in the heart of the city.

Unfortunately the hotel management has left the hotel to fall apart lately. I was moved twice since I checked in and I was forced to pay up to get a mini suite in order to avoid waiting until late afternoon for check in. This is a very "Brazilian" way to do business, always making early arrivals a nightmare especially if you had had a long and tiresome trip. Upon arrival the AC was not working properly in my assigned room. I went through the hassle of being moved to another one only to find out that the phone line had issues. The last room was OK but nothing special to speak of. I will try to find another hotel in the area that is managed properly. Again this used to be a nice hotel but it seems that nothing good lasts forever.

very old building and facility the building is old and has only old carpets and furniture the door of the closet in the room we stayed was broken...

My stay was no good. 7AM i woke up with a lot of nice because they were remodeling the building. Pool very small, no as showed on the picture. You can connect only one device on wifi, if you want to connect more you have to pay. It is an old building. I will not return.

I ended up last minute at this hotel and was happy. Plenty of shops around and felt safe.

If you want to meet the downtown this is your option, this hotel its not newone but that no matter, you are not going to be there the whole day. You can use the installation 24 hours and wifi is good, Casino is next to the building just if you want to earn additional money! I would recommend this hotel by his location, you can walk some blocks and meet, Metro, Ave. Balboa, Hard Rock etc.

The bed is comfortable. The environment and location are good. But the WiFi for one night was very slow, while others are fine.

I will never stay at hotel Continental ever again. First 3rd floor a/c and tiolet was not working right and 6th floor kitchen exuast coming in room ,very loud at nights and balcony window had gap in it too noisy while sleeping. Reported nothing was done by lobby. 6:30 am maintnence start hammering and carpet cleaning that early, all of these was not right. Bathroom had mold in the corners in tub. I will never going back there again ever .

Good location. Rooms are cleans. Staff are friendly. Good price.

I got a very special offer, best value x money, with excellent location (two to four blocks) closed to: 24 hrs supermarket n pharmacies, lots of restaurants with panamanian food at low price, lots of other nice hotels all around, and if you like casinos, there are several ones in the neighborhood. The room was comfortable and clean, with toiletries included. The onsite restaurant-bar has a nice ambiance and tropical drinks.

This hotel was built decades ago and it shows it. While everything works adequately, it really needs a complete makeover.

not a hotel I would go back for business but it would be OK just if you want a cheap option to stay in Panama

I enjoyed my stay here. The hotel offers many amenities. It has an excellent buffet that I recommend for breakfast.
