Reviewed 27 June 2015

Well finally I cancelled. Thanks to the receptionist. Picture and location looked great, but the picture showing the best time of the hotel couple of years ago. Being there seeing heavy construction work/ renovation going on. Wifi on/ off, elevator off. I did not feel to spend my time there. But situation may change fast, after renovation.

If the good service and super value that you get from the restaurant is any hint, this hotel is a sure bet. Built in the 80s with a long running operation this hotel has a good record of affordable service. The restaurant albeit looking like a throwback to the best of the late 20th century its good service and value...

Dear Lt. Freck, We are delighted to hear that you had such an enjoyable experience at our beloved hotel.

With the explosion of new hotels arriving on the scene this mid to large size establishment remains an icon in the sprawling city of Panama.

I've stayed at another hotel while in the city for several years. That property has continually gone downhill so we opted for the Executive as an alternative. Let me start by saying that breakfast is included in the room charge and several cuts above the average breakfast you'll find in Panama. If you're inclined you can have espresso or a...

The Executive Hotel provides great value for money. Breakfast came with the room and it was comparable to more expensive hotels in Montreal, and Bogota. The room itself was spacious and clean.

We stayed at the Executive for four nights, following five nights at the Hard Rock Hotel. We knew it was going to be a different experience. The location was terrific.

The Executive hotel was one of the cheapest we booked on our current trip, so we were prepared for a certain degree of give and take.
