One of the best things about staying at the Hotel Residencial El Valle is the owner and manager, Enrique. He is an affable, gregarious host. Unlike many of the other hotel proprietors, Enrique is very warm and welcoming. The building is beautiful with tiled floors and the third floor is a large covered patio with 6 hammocks, hand made wood furniture, a refrigerator and microwave oven with a balcony that overlooks the main street. The hotel is not air conditioned, but each room has an ocilating fan that does a good job in keeping the room comfortable. It is a very basic room. If you are looking for fancy, this hotel isn't it. If you are looking for a hotel with lots of local color, clean, friendly and comfortable, this hotel is for you. It was reasonably priced--at 55 per night. We needed laundry done and it costs us $6. The first floor of the building is a souvenir shop with quality wood and hand made baskets and cloth embrodered quilted purses, hand bags and pillow covers. I travtelled with my husband and another couple. We preferred to put our travel dollars for a guide who specializes in birding. I definitely recommend this hotel for someone looking for a reasonable, clean place to stay. The third floor covered porch was a real treat--a great vantage point to watch the street scene below, and the constantly changing surrounding mountains,one moment enshrouded in clouds, the next minute verdant in the attenuated light of the afternoon sun.

Room Tip: People like to party on the covered deck/porch on the third floor, so ask for a quiet room on the se...

We spent 2 nights in March at Hotel Residencial. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean, and there is a nice rooftop terrace with hammocks and chairs to relax in. The first night we were in an 'internal' room on the first floor which was just okay (a bit dark, and the one window opened next to a balcony from the next building, so we couldn't leave it open to let fresh air in. However, the following night we switched to a room on the top floor which was bright and airy, and opened on to the roof terrace. If you can get one of those rooms, I would definitely recommend doing so. We'd go back.

Room Tip: Top floor if possible: the rooftop terrace becomes your living room!

Hotel Owner Enrique Tiban was very helpful and attentive as were his employees. Enrique speaks English and understands American culture and lives on the property. His hotel facilities are reasonably priced and nice accommodations in the middle of town and next to the bus terminal. Friendly place overall and we will be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Roadway gets noisy, windy rattles, and other guests can be loud in common areas. Lower level and mi...

Our first trip to Panama we stayed in a number of hotels in Panama City, Santiago, El Valle, Boquete. Our very favorite was Hotel Residencial in El Valle. Enrique made our stay comfortable, and even provided us with some dishes and cutlery. Very friendly town and hotel employees. Very clean and attractive rooms, folk decor throughout the hotel. Many local places to shop for artisan wares and fresh fruit and veg, and a couple of tiny but good restaurants.

The hotel is nicely located in the town. The town is small and the sights are spread out throughout the valley but it's nice being close to the shops and the couple restaurants. The rooms were very clean, and decorated with hand painted wood furniture. Very colorful and attractive. Our host Enrique, was very hospitable. The upstairs deck with hammocks and chairs is pleasant. There is coffee in the morning and a restaurant downstairs. The local restaurants in the town have crazy bad service. But the hotel was great. Not fancy, but very pleasant. Only complaint about the hotel was the linen would not stay on the puffy new mattresses in the rooms. Minor complaint.

This hotel is located at the very center of the town, conveniently located near restaurants, shops, the market and the main bus stop. The room was clean, everything was working perfectly (fan, hot water) and the staff was very kind. I missed the AC but actually we didn't really need it
