Central to Everything

Posted Mar 13, 2015
Pros: Location, price and ambiance, large rooms and colonial style.
Cons: Restaurant.
Location: In the banking area, shopping and large hotels close, lots of tours available.
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful and the hotel is central to everything. Taxis are not expensive so shopping and tours are handy. The only thing that wasn't as good as expected was the restaurant. It was slow and empty. Room service was better. Would return and recommend to others.

Great find in the middle of the city.

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: Food, service and location.
Cons: Noting of any importance. Perhaps a microwave in the dinning room for breakfast. An ice machine on one of the floors would be a plus.
Location: From this location, you can take a taxi to the old city, the canal, the very creative bio museum (Frank Gehry designed it). Near Gamboa National Park.
Couldn't be more pleased with the courtesy and friendliness of the hotel. The room we had was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast as fine. The hotel restaurant was "fantastico." We dined there on Valentine's Day. Five course meal with superb food and presentation. Could not ask for more in a small hotel in a large and busy capital city and financial hub of Panama.

overnight stay

Posted Feb 12, 2015
Pros: The character. It looked old but preserved. We later found out it was only about 15 yrs old.
Cons: Allowing for earlier than 7am breakfasts.
Location: Downtown near other large hotels. Casino in Hilton , shopping mall, waterfront are all w/I walking distance.
We arrived early (late morning) for a 1 night stay. The receptionist and cleaning staff worked hard to enable us to get in our room asap. Check in time isn't officially until 4pm. After only about a 20 min. wait, we were able to get to our room. Receptionist was also very helpful in telling us places we could walk to, and securing transportation for us to the airport.

Nice hotel with mediocre restaurant.

Posted Feb 3, 2015
Pros: The front desk was helpful and efficient. Enjoyed the artwork in the lobby. The room was large and comfortable.
Cons: The maid service. Don't take towels that are hanging on the racks if they cannot be replaced or items of personal use.
Location: Nothing within walking distance. It's a car congested and trash littered city with not much to offer beyond the interest of the canal.
Panama City is not a city for pedestrians. Sidewalks are in poor repair and there is trash everywhere. Very busy streets which are difficult to traverse. The De Ville is centrally located, but due to the unfavorable walking conditions, you must take a taxi to everything. One evening we decided to eat at the hotel restaurant because we were tired of taking taxis. While edible, the food is bland and expensive. The service was terrible. The hotel itself is nice, but the room we stayed in had the windows blocked by a building next door. This did not bother me, but it makes it impossible to determine the weather outside. However, I was bothered by the fact that coffee makers were provided, along with coffee, but no filters! We asked for, and received, 3 filters which were removed by the maid service that very afternoon along with a travel pack of facial tissues that were on the bedside table. Lightly soiled face and hand towels were removed and not replaced. When asked at the front desk, we were told the hotel was out of the towel and we wouldn't get a fresh supply for several days. We would have continued to use the lightly soiled ones had they not been removed. Never got the coffee filters replaced and this probably annoyed me the most. Honestly, why provide coffee and coffee makers without the filters? Minor annoyances, but annoying nonetheless.

Hard to find, but nice.

It was hard to find at night. We were really happy with the room and the price was fair. It was conveniently located near the Avenida Balboa for sightseeing and shopping. We'd stay there again if we return to Panama City.

Good staff, comfortable beds, great on -site chef. Downside - beach is very remote and signage off the main road is weak.
