2 stopover nights PTY and Albrook, need advice

Arriving late night PTY, 1030 pm, leaving 1 pm next day to Bocas from Albrook airport.

Thinking we prefer to take a taxi from PTY towards downtown and stay there, maybe something more interesting than Albrook Inn. Breakfast there in the morning, maybe a quick walk around so somewhere nice for that, before heading to Albrook for our Bocas flight.

THEN...6 days later,

fly back to Albrook in the morning.... have the rest of that day and night so being able to walk to restaurants and do some shopping or seeing a few historical buildings -

must be at PTY next morning for international flight by 7 am.

Being the last day, staying downtown sounds better than staying at the Courtyard near PTY.

Any suggestions for decent hotels under $140 for each of these nights?

Absolutely stay away-- far, far, far away from the Albrook Inn!!! In 20 years of visiting Panama I have never stayed at a worse hotel.

My current favorite is Tores de Alba. Centrally located ... walking distance to good restaurants ... best breakfast buffet ... very reasonable rate ... good quality rooms. Just don't go near Albrook Inn ... especially if you want to make either of your flights.

I stayed in the Hotel Milan, again El Cangrejo - they had a special of about $70 for cash payment.

You could also consider somewhere in the old town.

If you want to be close to Albrook stay at the Holiday Inn in Ciudad de Saber or the Country Inn and Suites Amador.

Hi! You might want to consider staying more downtown for the last night.. The taxis arent expensive so you should be fine. Maybe the riu, the miramar intercontinental has a nice ocean view and is close to the historical casco viejo site... And the malls! Have fun
