We chose this hotel because of price. We were only in panama city for one night, and needed a cheep place to crash. We arrived at night, so already we in caution mode.

I really want to underline the fact that people working there are dishonest people. We had booked and paid through a website to be sure to get a reservation but when we arrived there, they told us they had nothing about us. We first thought it was the website who had made a mistake but that wasn't the case. Finally... More

Great hotel in a good central location. We arrived with a reservation at 0300. The check-in was easy, and they gave us a quiet room in the back of the hotel on the 4th floor. The room was large (by Panamanian standards) with a dbl bed. The bed was comfortable, with good sheets, there was a TV, a walk-in closet... More

I paid $30 for 1 night at this hotel and I definately got what I paid for... a dump!! However, we were at the hotel only 6 hours, arrived late at night into Panama City and were out the following morning at 5:30am for a domestic flight out of albrook national airport. Considering the few hours we were there, we... More

I will keep this short since I only used my room to shower and store my luggage for the day as I had a 2AM flight. I received a rate of $33 on otel.com (yes..otel not hotel) which is a discount from their normal rate of $39. I was expecting the worst given the price but was pleasantly surprised. For... More

The CentroAmericano Hotel offers very simple and basic accommodations. I stayed there for one night during February. ( I have stayed there before) If you are used to the Hilton, please do not stay here, you will be very disappointed. If you are the type that likes to complain about details that are perfectly normal for Latin America, but not... More

I came to the Centroamericano during a fairly weird junction in my life. I was courting a girl from Panama (who I eventually married), and since it just wasn't proper for me to stay at her home, I stayed in this hotel for a full month. Cost me a little under $500. At the time, I had absolutely no grasp... More
