    Location is centrak

    I booked a deluxe room for 2. However, when I came the receptionist was rude and: - Told me that I have to pay extra for the second person - Gave me a lower standard room. I had to fight with the front desk the next day Also, check-in takes a long time due to not enough front office staff. Design is poor - looks like a hospital

  • Single
    5.0

    Central location in the city

    A lot of noise from the street - they are building the metro in Panama city and the work will take place until 2014. As the hotel is right by the central avenue, all rooms have to suffer a lot of noise, day and night (they work 24h a day on it)

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Refurbished but lacks facilities and not worth the price paid..Other hotels nearby offer better value and facilities

  • Older travelers

    Location

    The ac was not cool enough, the hair dryer did not work.

  • Single

    That the hotel management is not correct!!!! They offer good prices but they put you an the street side where the Metro construction seems te be built. 24/7 hours working!!!! When I came in the room the airco was heavily working, no problem, when I can back in and shut the airco the noise of the drilling came.... Finally during the full night... Also a lot of screaming and load speaking persons from a wedding... This all makes sleeping impossible. When I complained and ask for the manager... Nobody... Finallly they put 10% of the bill.... But they all seems to know the problems... But no warning on the web... I suggest to avoid this type of hotels, you can not trust them.
