I stayed here for a few days last November only because I needed to be close to Ciudad del Saber. I recommend this hotel if you are doing business in the area or need to be very close to Miraflores for some reason. It may be a bit difficult (and/or pricey) to get a taxi to this area from Casco or El Cangrejo or other parts of the city because it is a little out of the way. Granted, by pricey, I mean anywhere from $5 - $15.
My experience was okay: the service, pool area, and rooms were average. The hallways were really hot and uncomfortable, but electricity is really expensive and no one really hangs out in the hallways. So, that's understandable. They accidentally overcharged us by $400 (!!!), and we did not realize it until after we returned to the U.S., but the manager was very accommodating through e-mail, and our money was refunded to us, in no time.
If you want to be able to walk to restaurants or shops, this is not a good choice. For me, there are many better options in the city center that I prefer.
