For business or pleasure I find this hotel very well located. Excellent restaurants within walking distance, one block to one of the main subway stations, and lots of fun places to go, makes this hotel my first choice when visiting the city.

Very pleasant at the hotel. Friendly staff. I recomend to use the Metro to move around Panamá city is more cheap and faster. You can enjoy going shopping to the best mall in the main city. I would recomend Albrook Mall and Multiplaza. Amazing Trip with a very tropical weather.

This is not a bad hotel, but is not superior either... Rates are good, but the place carries a dated and somewhat gloomy ambiance. Almost everything is outdated: The colors, the layout, the signage, the processes (when you ask for a glass of wine at the bar, they have to run to the restaurant to get it... and when you...
