Recent guest reviews
Staff was attentive hotel was clean and was remodel since I last visited 10 years ago.
Hotel Soloy is a great place if if you want to see the real Panama city. Yes the real Panama city. The Soloy is located in Calidionia one of the last working class neighborhoods in what I consider the real down town Panama city where gentrification is quickly taking hold. The hotel provides a nice buffet for Breakfast. After eating you can take a stroll up Avenida Peru . On Avenida Peru you will be able to sense the heart beat of the city.It is also a great place for an inexpensive lunch Avenida Peru is full of Food stands that sell Patacones Tamales and Chorisso. To be honest the area can get bit gritty. It is best to walk in the morning hours or early afternoon in the direction of La loteria Nacional and the park Porras several blocks away. While there enjoy a hand made snow cone or just sit in the Park for a few moments and enjoy the movement of the city. From there Basilca Don Bsco is located several blocks away. If you should decide to venture past the park or in the other direction I would consult with the hotel staff as to winch areas were safe to walk in and winch ones are not. If you do decide to venture out I recommend not bring large amounts of cash I have been told there are a few pickpockets out there but this should not discourage a short walk out in the neighborhood. However, I do not recommend venturing out at night and exercise caution when walking on on the side streets. The other good thing is that Taxis are inexpensive compared to USA and if you want to hang out in the trendy tourist spots most of those are close by and the Taxi ride will not cost you to much.
