Beautiful Hotel and friendly staff

I was supposed to stay in a junior suite, but due to limited rooms, we were upgraded to a larger room. The facilities were very comfortable and the breakfast good with many options. The staff was courteous and friendly. The hotel has a good location in the center of Panama city.

For a convenient location, at an amazingly reasonable cost, and a pampered and comfortable stay in Panama City, the Waldorf Astoria is a great option. Perhaps the best reason though, is the professional, thoughtful and extraordinary staff. This is our third or so visit to the Waldorf in the last 3 years and the staff remembers us and greets us as if we are family. Why go anywhere else?

Beautiful hotel, only a $3 Uber ride to Casco Viejo, plenty of restaurants nearby. I recommend Friend's Food two doors down for breakfast -- all in Spanish but we gringos were able to make it work with pointing to pictures with our patient waitress. Hotel restaurant was "meh" and very expensive, so I recommend going elsewhere, but the rooms were spacious and comfortable, beautifully furnished and clean. Friendly staff, speaking great English.

Very good property in a busy area of the city. Easily reachable (great thing because traffic in panama can be rough). Hotel is very good, high end, spacious, a bit impersonal but still friendly and is luxurious but not opulent. Breakfast is good but somewhat mechanical - seems like they are trying to move through guests quickly, but the staff is attentive and courteous. Definitely one of the best properties in town. I will return.
