First Class Hotel

Posted Mar 19, 2017
The Bristol is the best hotel in Panama, by far. First class boutique. Lovely rooms and stellar service.

Well located and beautiful!

Posted Mar 12, 2017
We had a lovely one night stay as the installations are beautiful and very comfortable! But we were disappointed by the lack if hot water (the bath is fantastic, would have loved to use it) and the door banging late at night and early morning.

Great location, beautiful hotel

Posted Feb 15, 2017
Pros: Great location
Cons: Staff in restaurant.
Location: Near the water.
The location couldn't be better. A Shriners rat cab ride to everything. The hotel rooms and common areas are well maintained. Everyone at the front desk spoke English and were very helpful. The only area for improvement is with the staff in the fifth floor restaurant. They were not very friendly or helpful.

Pros: the room was huge and very well appointed. the room AC was very week and didn't cool off until well after dark.

Good hotel in the heart of the city

Posted Jan 4, 2017
Bristol is centrally located ($30-35 from Airport, $5 to Casca Viejo). Good spa. Decent bar. Restaurant has limited vegetarian options. Rooms were good sized with comfortable beds. Not all staff speak good English. Concierge was excellent and helped with trips and reservations.

Panama layover

Posted Dec 13, 2016
Pros: Accomodations and service
We traveled via Panama and had a 1-day layover. We booked the Bristol and found to have been a good choice. The only negative is its distance from the casco viejo, but that was easily remedied with taxis [get a quote and negotiate the price before getting in]. We would stay again.

Great hotel in every way.

Really liked this classy hotel. Only issue is it is in an isolated location. Would have preferred to stay in Casco viejo

Pretty hotel ... but rooms are noisy and bad servi

Posted Nov 23, 2016 on Orbitz
There is constant noise in the rooms. Plus the service is awful. We tried to get coffee (because while there is a Keurig maker in the room, they do not have k-cups. There is sometimes coffee in the lobby ... not always... and then they charge $9 for 2 cups. We could never get service for a washcloth in our room. I would not stay at this property again. They are a disgrace to the Leading Hotels of the World group.
