Recent guest reviews

Excellent confortable and great room. Excellent wifi

Very good.Nice room and excellent service. Excellent wifi and parking.

My wife and I recently stayed here during a very long layover. The hotel was very nice, the staff great, and we really liked the location. Our room was comfortable, the bed very comfortably firm, which I prefer. Oh, and very clean. Our only disappointment was that we didn't have time to stay longer and really enjoy ourselves in this part of Ciudad Panama.

Love the area and the price, food service and felt at home

hotel was good, location is excellent - ctr Pan/City

Close to many places including the Via Argentina Metro.

Hotel is nice, clean and very boutique style. My 17 yr old and 20 yr old liked it. Room was very spacious , modern arty style and clean. The air condtioner which was hard to start first but cooled the room, needed getting used to to get the right temp. My complaint was the free breakfast was free with first order. No buffet style and second plate , had to be paid for. The first servings were too small to fill my 20yr old son and choices were very limited. Overall, experience was courteous and friendly. Would still recommend. Lots of places to eat around and shop within walking miles. My kids want to return again.

We enjoyed our say at the Hotel Saba and stayed when we arrived to Panama City before going to Bocas, and again for a night before returning to the US. Our only complaint was that the standard room we were put in did not have a bathroom door at all. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and the breakfast option was really nice to have.

no airport shuttle (35usd each way), a/c was very slow to cool off tiny, clean comfortable room.. easy food and drink and banks nearby.

I had never been to Panama before but my fiancé grew up there. I wanted to surprise her with a trip but didn't know where to stay. I read the reviews and the SABA seemed nice and very reasonable. It was both. The staff looked after us like we were family and would greet us warmly at the end of our adventurous days in beautiful Panama. It is close to the main transportation hub which gave us cheap transportation to everywhere we wanted to go. The street where it's located is lined with wonderful restaurants. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

The hotel was very nice and clean, staff helpful and friendly but the breakfast could have been better and more of a selection. Very private and nice get away for a couple.

I stayed here for four nights. All I have to say is wonderful things about the hotel, the room was clean and nice. Excellent location, close to Metro de Via Argentina. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast provided was good. I would stay there again.

Great location and room for the price. Close to many restaurants. Was pleasantly surprised!

Fue muy buena y positiva la experiencia. Deben advertir que no se expende alcohol en el restaurante y que su cocina tiene una amplia orientación a ofertar platos hechos de la manera mas sana, utilizando condimentos naturales, sin preservantes. Aunque disfrute los platos que comi deben advertirlo en su publicidad en internet. Hubiese deseado que sus precios fueran un poco más bajos.
