Hotel Tantalo is the place to be if you like to go site seeing and especially if you like to party - the rooftop bar was awesome and we had a great time! The free breakfast was excellent as well as the rest of their menu. Very friendly staff and excellent atmosphere...really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone visiting Casco Viejo.

Great boutique Hotel in the centre of Casco ViejoPosted May 29, 2013
Awesome modern stylish twist on the colonial exterior - this is a beautiful boutique hotel, right in the center of the action of the old town in Panama City - The staff are great - so helpful, the food is amazing, and the bar and roof top bar are the main attraction. - it is a very trendy place, so definitely attracts the hipper crowd, so its a good place to start if your not familiar with the area and want an easy way in to the cool part of town.

A Nightmare at Casco ViejoPosted Feb 17, 2013
Pros: Clean and modern
Cons: Impossible to sleep because of the noise! It is like sleeping inside a Disco.
Location: Casco Viejo is a nice location, unfortunately renovations are being conducted wcausing major traffic problems. It is better to avoid Casco Viejo.
The room was modern and well decorated. We decided to go to bed at 10:30pm. Well, we were trapped like in "The Pit and the Pendulum" (The classic horror tale by Edgar Allan Poe). The room door was adjacent to the central patio overlooking the restaurant on the ground floor (THE PIT) where there was music playing at full volume. We could hear the music as if it were right inside our room. After calling the manager and reminded him that we had ask for a QUIET ROOM when we did our booking, he told us that the Hotel was noisy and each room received a share of the noise. At about 11pm, the music at the roof bar, just one floor above us started (THE PENDULUM). This was even worse, since it was dance music with a bass beat: bum, bum, bum...It was absolutely impossible to try to sleep. After complaining, the Hotel staff told us that their Hotel was FAMOUS for their roof bar and that the music would continue until 3am! They finally agreed to move us to one free room opposite to the one we had, where the music was still present but not so loud. I personally was not able to sleep until the music finished at 3am and had to wake up at 6am because I had an early flight. So I ended up paying for a torture and a 3 hour sleep period almost 200 US$. The Casco Viejo is undergoing major renovations, as a result there are several closed streets and a lot of traffic, it is not a good place to stay in Panama City until the works are finished.

Very cool and hip place to stayPosted Jan 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
The service and food was impeccable here. It is truly a very cool and hip place to stay. The furniture in the rooms were ultra modern and just really neat. The front desk was able to make arrangements for us, including nearby restaurant reservations, taxis, and more. Taxis are essential for getting to other parts of the city, however.

Hip vibe in cool areaPosted Jan 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel has a very hip scene. There is a big restaurant in the lobby with friendly service and good food. Every employee was so attentive and willing to help. We never made it to the bar, but looked to be fun. Next time. It's not supper quiet or sedate. Go up the street for that.

Great stay in Casco VeijoPosted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Fun, modern hotel with amazing staff (very, very helpful) and a cool funky vibe. Loved the rooftop bar (and the ability to skip the queue as a hotel guest) and breakfast in the morning was delicious. A great place to stay in Panama City.

Good times at the TantaloPosted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed at the Tantalo hotel while visiting Panama City. The hotel is amazing and is in a perfect location if you want to experience Casco Viejo - one of the best neighborhoods in Panama. The views from the rooftop were spectacular and the food and attentive service from the hotel were top notch. Definitely stay here if you're visiting Panama City.
