Cool hotel but not sure if worth it

Posted Dec 5, 2017
Pros: Location is great - right in the middle of Casco Viejo. Hotel design is very unique and nice Bed was comfortable Hotel staff was really nice There’s a great restaurant at the lobby and a cool bar on the rooftop. Cons: There’s a lot of noise at night becaue of the restaurant and bar. The rooms aren’t totally sound proof. The room doesn’t have many furniture and places to sit besides the bed. The water in the shower wasn’t warm enough - even a bit cold. I would say the hotel was a bit overpriced.

Trendy Hotel

Posted Nov 26, 2017
Tantalo is located just inside Casco Antiguo near Casco’s entrance. Restaurant is very popular and the rooftop bar is the largest I have seen. Several restaurants nearby feature rooftop settings, as well. That said guest rooms, particularly those on the north corner can hear music and traffic until about 3:30 am. Tantalo is a tad more expensive than other hotels in Casco, and breakfast is not included. That said, I enjoyed my corner roof, large and comfortable. Casco is an exciting area to explore, everything is only about a 10-minute walk, with trendy restaurants and bars, along with museums and historic churches.

Interesting hotel but not for everyone.

Posted Nov 19, 2017
Pros: Location, price.
Cons: Noise level, bathrooms.
Location: Casco Antiguo is the old part of Panama City. It’s being developed and restored right now and offers a variety of bars, shops and restaurants .
We chose Tantalo Hotel for it’s location in the Casco Antigua in November 2017 for one week. We read about the noise from the rooftop bar but decided to take a chance. The hotel is more a bar and restaurant and the hotel seems to be a side business. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom small and somehow outdated. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the AC was working. The noise from the rooftop bar was somehow acceptable, even it went on until 4 AM on the weekends. Worse was the noise from the bar downstairs, which was not blocked by the door and would last at least until midnight. So unless you are a very heavy sleeper or a party animal, think twice. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, so no complaints there. All in all a mixed experience.

Great hotel

Posted Oct 28, 2017
Hotel was a great location, rooftop bar was amazing, food and drinks were great. The only issue I had was with the front desk girl, every encounter with her was unpleasant.

Great area - bad sleep

Posted Oct 14, 2017 on Hotels
Nice hotel in a beautiful area but don't stay here if you want a good sleep as it is super loud due to the kitchen and bar downstairs and rooftop bar.

Fun, Hip, Artsy Hotel!

Posted Jul 8, 2017 on Orbitz
We stayed at Tantalo, in Casco Viejo, for three nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel is super cute and in a perfect location for exploring Casco Viejo! Hanging out at the rooftop bar was lots of Fun! Breakfast was yummy! The staff were all great; very nice and very helpful! The only "dilemma" was that our room was loud at night due to the music from the rooftop bar, but I knew this would be the case before booking. Nevertheless, we were still able to sleep well since we were pretty tired from running around town all day and partying at night! Ear plugs might be helpful for someone who wants to go to bed early.

Pleasant hotel - noise can be an issue

Posted Apr 19, 2017 on Orbitz
Welcoming and accommodating staff, conveniently located, great restaurant/bar. Comfortable room (bed and such). Spacious. Noise, however, can be an issue at night. Poorly isolated; if you have a light sleep I suggest you look for another option. I don't, and had no problem, but could definitely hear the music - at times loud. Wifi is OK.
