Great hotelPosted Feb 17, 2014
Great hotel to stay in if you are cruising out of Colon. It's about a 5 - 10 minute walk to the cruise ship terminal from the hotel. Taxi was less than 10 dollars. I contacted the hotel for transportation from Tocumen airport and they were wonderful. They had a trustworthy taxi waiting for me at Panama City airport with my name on a sign. The taxi cost was $80 for two and the ride was over an hour. Thank You Radisson Colon.

Nice hotel in a very poor cityPosted Feb 6, 2014
Pros: Everything. Lovely staff, swimming pool, restaurant.
Cons: Wifi. Mine worked in Panama City, but here it was spotty.
Location: Location is safe, city of Colon is not. Take taxis! I reccomend Rogello, as he was recommended by front desk staff, a charming man, spoke english.
I had no preconcieved ideas going into Colon, Panama, just a message from my girlfriend and a map. You can take taxis to Portobello National Park or an old Spanish fort. I stayed in Colon and investigated this city. I had seen photos of the Radisson on expedia, I read a few reviews and thought I'd go see what the other side of the country of Panama looks like. Colon is in total disrepair. The money in the Panama is unevenly distributed on an extreme scale. Poverty in Colon is the norm. The Radisson is heavlity guarded by men and women in uniform with guns, a bit uncomfortable, but that is the truth. The hotel itself is wonderful! Great food at the restaurant for a very fair price. The pool and work out room, never crowded and clean. Wifi was a problem, but I came to relax, read, swim, sun, and the computers in the business center worked perfect and fast. Bathroom and bed, excellent. I took a bus from Panama City to Colon from the main terminal. $3.50, paid en route. A loud, dubbed Stallone/Schwarzenneger film played on communal screens throughout the bus. Hilarious! Crazy, funny violence with macho Spanish voices accentuating the familiar lack of talent. I took a taxi from Colon to the airport for $60. Divide by 2 ( I always say ).

Five Star Facility, Two Star ManagementPosted Jan 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
Booking was made through Hotels.com. Hotel had no reservation when we arrived. It took 3 hours to resolve and we ended up cancelling Hotels.com reservation and paying the hotel directly. The whole fiasco was badly handled by all concerned.

4days in colonPosted Apr 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
without doubt the best hotel I've stayed in in the last 30 years. Best 4 nights sleep I had in 14 days in Panama. Problem is the city of Colon is virtually of limits. Free trade zone is mostly commercial only
