Good location in the center. Not far from the embankment. They have some personal who speaks English language. You can have a good breakfast at a side restaurant at the same building for 5-6 USD. Free parking. Small rooms with a strange location for TV - upon the dresser :) Suitable bathroom. Old air conditioner a little bit noisy at night.

Clean, small, and cheap. If price is your main concern, then this will be adequate.It's located in the center of town. It can be noisy, from the street noise, but if cheap is your preference, that shouldn't matter. This is really a "no-frills" hotel, but it's fine.

The reception made me feel that I did not make the right choice but, when we got to the room I was pleasantly surprised by the amenities included.
Had air conditioning on remote control, clean sheets and towels, hot water, large wardrobe with mirror door, TV, desk and a chair. Wifi was not working for us but we got an underground parking for our car.
The location of the hotel is kind of in the middle so you can get very easily everywhere using the nearby metro.
The hotel has a restaurant but, close by there is a McDonald and a Pio Pio fast food, corner store and pharmacy.

Easily the worst hotel we stayed at in Panama and that's saying a lot! Nothing worked. Staff useless and unfriendly (like most Panamanians) Door security non functioning. Food terible. Loud. Dodgy area. Water issues. No stars.

We stayed at this hotel in July 2019. There were numerous issues:
1. The sink in the "full kitchen" didn't work and no effort was made to fix it once we pointed that out.
2. The whole room smelled like sewage.
3. There were violent and/or sexually explicit music videos playing constantly in the lobby to the point where we couldn't let our kids be in that space.
4. Only one of the 6 front desk staff we interacted with made any attempt to speak English.
5. A leak in a pipe in the ceiling of the bathroom meant that there was a layer of water of unknown origin covering the bathroom floor

... but considering the price, what you get can be OK. Can be because it very much depends on the room you´re given. The first room was a dank and damp windowless cell and a weak light bulb. The A/C was as dated as the furniture in the room and cleanliness in general isn´t exactly a strong point of the Hotel San Remo. After insisting I was transferred to a much nicer room - ask for the ones with window to Calle 31!

The bed was comfortable and my new room spacious and with lots of light. The rooms come with cable TV and private bathroom. Don´t expect the rooms to be spotlessly clean. I found loads of dark hair on the floor and in the bathrooms. However, the hotel was not filthy, just not too clean either. If you´re not too picky, you should be alright.

Some of the staff were pleasant, especially those present in the evening, while some were (at best) not overly motivated. The area the hotel is in is OK during the day, but I wouldn´t wander off to far after dark. The Old Town is a mere 30-minute walk away. Or use UBER, which worked just fine for me.

I really don´t understand the reviews and the ratings the San Remo gets on several websites. It´s at best mediocre and was definitely the least pleasant place during my five weeks in Latin America (and not the cheapest either!). I would not go back to the Hotel San Remo if I could help it. I heard from some people that there are much nicer hotels in the Albrook area with only slightly higher rates. If you just stay for one or two nights, you should be alright though.

PS: Wi-fi was slow, erratic and there was no signal in most of the rooms, which is why there´s always people sitting on the steps and in the corridors.

I recommend this hotel. Quite pricey for a private room however it's in a good location and easy walks to the metro and restaurants.

The room had air-con and the bathroom in the room was clean. We didn't have any noise disruptions either. The reception staff were very helpful and answered our questions whenever we needed

Average hotel for budget price. It looks worse than in public photos, but still inhabitable. I arrived in late night and left it in early morning, for this purpose it fits well.

If staying for few days, I would seek for another hotel because the rooms are small, quite dark and hot. However they are clean, so my objections are only of subjective nature.

For breakfast there was promised that in 7:00 the dining facility will be opened - it was not. That is not a big problem, because breakfast was not included in price and at right corner 10 m from the entrance is the dining facility which was open.

Main advantage of this hotel is that they did not ask the credit card details for reservation. That is really nice, because many other hotels in Panama City wanted it, but I do not like to share this information.
