1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Terrible hotel. The online pictures show a simple yet clean room. I was shown 2 different rooms and the furniture was run down, beds were stained and with hairs, walls had humidity stains and the smell was stale. They offer free shuttle to and from the Airport but, when I arrived to Tocumen, the staff of the transportation company that provides the shuttle service told me that they were not working with this hotel anymore and had to pay for a taxi to the hotel. I asked for my money back and was told that I'd have to speak to the supervisor, who was not present and allegedly would not arrive until "later" in the day. Since I was on Panama for only a day, I did not have time to return to demand my money back or go to the police or any other authority. AVOID THIS HOTEL AT ALL COSTS

Overnight Stay
The location of the hotel was in a part of town that is not extremely safe. There was ample parking in a lot nearby. Staff were friendly & check-in was a breeze. The size of the room was decent; hot water & water pressure was great. Wifi speed worked really well. Would not recommend for families or extended stay.

Budget hotel, fairly convenient
The hotel is not too far from the city center. Nothing special but a reasonable budget option. The staff are helpful and friendly. At least one of the staffers speaks English. There is a small restaurant next to the hotel, rather than inside it.
