                            Location is centrak

                            I booked a deluxe room for 2. However, when I came the receptionist was rude and: - Told me that I have to pay extra for the second person - Gave me a lower standard room. I had to fight with the front desk the next day Also, check-in takes a long time due to not enough front office staff. Design is poor - looks like a hospital

                            5.0

                            Central location in the city

                            A lot of noise from the street - they are building the metro in Panama city and the work will take place until 2014. As the hotel is right by the central avenue, all rooms have to suffer a lot of noise, day and night (they work 24h a day on it)

                          • Group of friends
                            5.0

                            Refurbished but lacks facilities and not worth the price paid..Other hotels nearby offer better value and facilities

                            Location

                            The ac was not cool enough, the hair dryer did not work.

                          • Single
                            4.2

                            That the hotel management is not correct!!!! They offer good prices but they put you an the street side where the Metro construction seems te be built. 24/7 hours working!!!! When I came in the room the airco was heavily working, no problem, when I can back in and shut the airco the noise of the drilling came.... Finally during the full night... Also a lot of screaming and load speaking persons from a wedding... This all makes sleeping impossible. When I complained and ask for the manager... Nobody... Finallly they put 10% of the bill.... But they all seems to know the problems... But no warning on the web... I suggest to avoid this type of hotels, you can not trust them.
