“Great hotel at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

I stayed at the Hotel Ciudad de David in October for 1 night. This hotel is in the center of David and I was attended by cheerful and friendly people throughout my stay including at the restaurant. My room was spacious, elegantly decorated and had a really nice, above average bathroom. I enjoyed the amenities of this hotel including the terrace and small swimming pool on the 2nd floor. This is a great hotel for business and leisure and comes at a reasonable price - I wish I would have known about this hotel earlier! I will definitely stay here again - hopefully soon!

Room Tip: The higher the floor - the better the view!

New, nice, great service, great price.
Only place I would stay in David.
$95.00 for one night including great breakfast buffet at Stylo next door.
Free drink coupon at Stylo. Only place I would eat in David, except for TGI Fridays on the Highway.
Used the drink coupon for a Caipirinha cocktail made with Cacacha rum, Brazil's best.
Liked it so much, I ordered a second. Quidado though, they're really strong.
There isn't much to see in David except lots of really pretty women.
It is a great jumping off place for Boca Chica, Bocas Del Toro and Boquete, Volcano, etc.
Convenient parking on the ground and second floors.
You can get a direct flight from Panama City. Wouldn't advise driving from Panama City. Too many speed traps, too many predatory Policias on the International highway. I got lost many times.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 6th floor in different rooms both times. I'm sure the other floors are just as...

We had a great experience staying at "Ciudad de David" for a couple of days. The staff at the front desk was very courteous . Upon our arrival they gave us a free cocktail, which was a plus :) The food at the restaurant was delicious and the restaurant staff was extremely nice. The restaurant manager would come to us a couple of times each day asking us if we needed anything else. We saw him walking around, interacting with his staff, and even cleaning the tables! The bar staff was great, too! The pool was small and we didn't use it, but they heated the sauna for us after we told them we wanted to use it. They had a small gym for those who wanted to work out while traveling. The room was impeccably clean and spacious. We didn't spend much time at the hotel, though, as we traveled around the Boquete area but we liked what we saw at the hotel. Definitely worth 5 stars!

I have stayed at Hotel Ciudad de David more than 3 times now and every single time I've had an excellent experience, given the excellent quality of service, hotel infrastructure and good food.

Well trained staff really makes a difference to any other hotel in town. Pool & rooms always clean and looking sharp, plus excellent location. Very modern architecture.

Owners are constantly wandering the place making sure guests are treated "as family"... and that makes a difference.

Recommended!

Room Tip: ask for rooms facing the pool!...

On my first visit to David, Panama, my fiance' and I stayed at this hotel. It was such a wonderful experience from start to finish. The reception desk employees were all very helpful, always with a smile on their face and eager to assist in any way possible. The hotel itself was of modern, contemporary decor, the suite was spacious and the bathroom amenities were of top notch. Room service was very quick. The bar service and restaurant was excellent and again the entire staff always with a smile on thier face. It's not often that you get to speak to on a daily basis with one of the owners on a first name basis (Alex). They catered to my every whim and made our stay very special. Because we are openng a busines in Panama, we will continue to stay here and highly recommend it. A special thanks to Idu,GM and to Arroldo, Consierge, etc...

Room Tip: We had one of the larger suites. I believe all rooms are suites. Very spacious and comfortable.

I have been here four times for business and this hotel is the best place to go. Good food, nice staff and everything must have been built in 2010 so very new..
The swimming pool is a little small so less recommended for tourists wanting to stay longer then 1 night..

Clean rooms with great service. A very well managed hotel that you will enjoy in David. There are no other that compare to the quality of this hotel. It has a great restaurant Stylo. The lunch buffet is great and on Thursday night they have live music along with a special happy hour. You will enjoy yourself at this hotel. They also have a sister hotel in Panama City that is also outstanding. The Finisterre Suites and Spa. We have staid in both and both are great.
