Just an average hotel

2 out of 5
Posted Dec 28, 2016
Pros: I enjoyed my hot showers and the cleanliness of the room. Must say we stayed there only for the location, otherwise we would have moved out!
When we checked in we were given a room on the 10th floor. Excited to start our trip we got in the elevator. A bit exhausted of our flight, ready to jump on the bed and rest. To my surprise the room was dirty. Towels on the floor, the bed was not made etc etc. I try not to be a difficult person and went back to the front desk. No apology from the clerk who just said "ow that's awful" and send us back to another room. The people are not very service minded to my opinion. I woke up with back pain every morning, and so did my family members. The overall condition of the hotel is very old.

Old Hotel, Renovations Nice Pool

3 out of 5
Posted Sep 16, 2015
Pros: The rooftop view and pool was Amazing, that was literally the best part of this hotel. The check in /checkout process was really really simple.
Cons: The hotel is currently undergoing a series of renovations. I hated the bright orange dated bedding. Mold smell is an indicator of a larger issue.
This was my first trip to Panama City. I had a very lavish stay my first couple of nights. Then I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, it was enjoyable. However my room had an incredibly strong mold odor. It is connected to a casino and I noticed immediately that there was a higher police presence in this part of the city. As a single woman traveling alone I kept this in mind, I walked across the street and had several meals at Alcapolco. I also took a taxi($4) to Casco Viejo and spent the day exploring. I did not get to go to the fish market. The locals told me about it. I did not get to eat the breakfast.

A good value if you don't need luxury.

Pros: value
Cons: chairs in pool area
Location: There is much to explore in the city, and there is a very good shopping area for groceries and essentials across the street.
Good security and adequate accommodations. If you define value as amenities divided by cost, it comes out well. The breakfasts were nutritious and adequate - with good coffee. They do, however, need to purchase more usable chairs for the pool area. There was actually only one good chaise up there at the rooftop pool.

The experience was bad, when you arrive there was no electricity (it was not their fault), but had no power plant so we had to climb to the second floor by the stairs. When I get electricity, air conditioning and room did not work, the beds were moving place, etc. They have a bar upstairs, but does not work. A Casino where comes all sorts of people. The breakfast was not nice, had rice is not how, chicken wings in red sauce, egg, all you can eat was bread with butter and coffee.

Kind people make all he difference

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Pros: The employees and location
Cons: Towels at the pool. We had to call 3 times. As system is neede, getting the room number, and giving the employee name night help
Yes, the place it a bit run down...what most bothered us was on Expedia it read $52 a night for up to four people. I entered 2 adults and two kids, updated, and still $52. After I entered in the credit card, it revealed $89...,be aware! However, due to Lily, at the front desk, it was well worth the money. She broke the rules by kindly checking us in early, in a quiet room. Management did enter our room I'm the night, as they were checking, ?, as we were not on the books,? then in the morning the same man who had entered our room was waiting at the breakfast buffet to beg foregivness. The doorman, sorry I don't have his name, gives out great information, clear and exactly what we were looking for - a cheap, quick place to eat. We had 3 meals at the corner shop/restaurant. Great advice! The kindness of the employees made all the difference.

Don't go unless you carry a portable printer

Afternoon manager said I had to present printed proof of reservation to get expedia prepaid room. He refused looking at smartphone's reservation confirmation. Had me 20 minutes waiting and, finally, had someone else take care of me. They said didn't find the reservation althogh was made several hours ago.
