On our way back to the Netherlands after a wonderful island holiday, we decided to stay in a small but cozy hotel. We wanted to stay in our jungle and sea bubble so decided not to choose for a big business hotel. What to expect from the Panams: + friendly atmosphere and check in service + small hotel and tastefully...

Nice little hotel in a safe part of Panama City. The rooms were very nice and the breakfast was a made to order. The best part of our 5 night stay was the service, the gentleman at the front desk was extremely helpful with making recommendations for restaurants, helping us get laundry done, and anything else we needed.

Awesome room, big clean and nice. The few small things not working like the rainshower were very insignificant compared to overall standard. 12 rooms total so quite cozy. Good service too. Very friendly and knowledgeable daytime staff. Staff could speak better English perhaps, at least the night receptionist. Nice simple breakfast included with personalized service. Location very good too. Centrally...

This lovely hotel in the city has very spacious rooms (ours had also a jacuzzi), is close to the boulevard where you can make a nice walk and 10mins walk away from calle uruguay for restaurants and bars. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom is very modern, well maintained and has a huge rainshower. Really nice. You also...

I am quite a critical reviewer but this little hotel is just too awesome not to praise. I loved everything about the design. It's asian style, huge rooms, very convenient bathroom with rain shower, large bed, all very tastefully decorated. The breakfast was great, they even offer champaign for your favorite mimosa. I loved the eggs cooked to order. In...

I stayed twice at the Panams on my way to and back from Venezuela, I was surprised by my very large room and the huge shower head Staff is very courteous , make reservation outside for dinner as the hotel has only terrible sandwiches and doesn't serve meals, only breakfast. Wine testing is complimentary. I enjoyed my stay and will...

The Panams describes itself as a boutique hotel which was one of the reasons we booked. Unfortunately it did not deliver as such. Although there is nothing terribly wrong with this hotel, it just wasn't what it somewhat promised it to be. It's not located in the best area, check-in was somewhat awkward (the chap hardly spoke English, pointing us...

The hotel is stylish and comfortable. We loved the large rain-shower and the room. The room was clean and nicely appointed. We visited around Christmas and the hotel had a lovely tree and decorations in the lobby- including a cute ornament on every door knob in the hallway- a nice touch! There is really no view from the hotel as...

We stayed at the Panams Hotel for two nights when visiting Panama City. The hotel is located in a central area, although a little difficult for the taxi drivers to find because it is a small property. Even though the hotel only has 12 rooms, we didn't get that awkward you-might-be-the-only-guest feel. Complimentary wine and coffee were available in the...
