Gem in Downtown Panama City

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: The location was great: near restaurants, supermarket, attractions, and a safe neighborhood. The staff went above and beyond and the breakfast was yum
Cons: We had some issues with the plumbing, but that is to be expected in third world countries and the hotel staff was quick to fix all problems.
Location: Restaurants are close, Casco Viejo is within a 30-45 minute walk, and the Cinta Costera, along the beach, is only about a 10 minute walk.
This hotel was amazing! The hotel staff was so friendly and answered every question we had. Lenert and Julio were the main people we interacted with at the desk and they were knowledgeable, helpful, and willing to go the extra mile. Julio gave us a hand drawn map to a fabulous Panamanian restaurant and made sure our laundry was done within 24 hours. The breakfast at the hotel was outstanding, as there was fruit, meats and cheese, and a delicious cake every morning. There is also free espressos, iced tea, and wine in the lobby 24/7 which was very refreshing after walking around humid Panama City. The location was great too. We were able to walk to the old city and local fish market along the ocean, and we were close to a Double Decker Red Bus city tour stop. All in all, the hotel was great! The neighborhood was safe enough to walk to restaurants for dinner, the rooms were spacious, and the d├ęcor of the hotel was very modern. We saw business people, families, and couples at breakfast so it seems to be a hotel for everyone. We had a great time and if I go back to Panama, I would definitely stay here again!

Great place with personal friendly service

Posted Mar 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel was truly a find for us. Good central location. Not having been to Panama City before we checked online for various places. We prefer to stay in smaller, non-chain type hotels. We found the staff at The Panams very personable and extremely helpful. Our room was great - spacious with a very comfortable bed. Large bathroom with a rainfall type shower. The room also had a jacuzzi but have to admit that with the heat outside we weren't much into using it. We have to make special mention of Julio at the front desk who was great at giving us directions and filling us in with good places to go and other local information. But we would add that all the staff were helpful and friendly. Very personal service. We would definitely stay there again.

1. Room is really dark 2. Spa in room is out dated and gross. 3. Shower didn't drain; had to ask them to clean the clog; wear flip flops 4. We had to ask to have toilet turned on after it was used. ugh. 5. Room carpeting was gross.

Noisy. Not close to any evening entertainment

Metal or ceramic metal tinted floor tiles throughout make sleeping through the echo chamber of inside voices and chatter a real challenge. The upside is you won't hear outdoor noise, as the sound proof nature of the outside windows mask street noise.

Very nice and small hotel so it's very tranquill.

Posted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: Big comfortable room.
Cons: There is currently some construction going on nearby which was a little irritating, but that won't last for long.
Location: The location was perfect for me because of local business. However, it is not near any restaurants or stores so you have to travel to other areas.
I liked everything about the hotel. Nice big comfortable rooms. Good internet. Even the food from the restaurant was very good.

Nice hotel

Posted Aug 14, 2013
Very Nice Rooms and a nice hotel although a bit out of the way and towards the left of the hotel doesnt seem to be a great area. Be careful with the taxi drivers. A few tried to charge us 10 dollars for a 3 dollar ride

Nice and Convenient

I was in Panama just for two nights. For my needs it was perfect. The hotel is small and extremely quiet. The rooms were very clean, but do not expect any amenities. Nevertheless is a great value and very convenient to anywhere in the city. definetely will stay again.

great hotel at a great price

Posted Apr 9, 2013
I recently spent one night at the Panams Boutique Hotel: the staff was really nice and helpful, the room very comfortable (the decor was a little dark for my liking but that's personal taste), I loved the shower and the jacuzzi. The manager had arranged for a wake up call and taxi without me having to ask for it as I had mentioned my early flight. the location is convenient, there is a supermarket and several restaurants 5mns walk from the hotel.
