The Hotel is clean but noisy. The staff is friendly but does not speak English well. Internet is good and fast. The city of knowledge is very remotly located.One bottle of water in the room is charged with 8 USD (10% of the room fee). Panama has very good water treatment plants, so drink from the tap, buy from the restaurant or super market down the street or get free water from the gym.

Room Tip: I stayed in 606 with a beautiful view on the canal.

We arrived late night and planned a visit to the Panama Canal on the following day. This is a great options as you can book rooms with Canal views and is just 5min ride. We arrived on the worst day possible: Christmas Day. Even though we were very well welcome by the staff and we had a very pleasant stay. They even offer free shuttle to the locks, Albrook Mall and airport! It saved us rent a car (transit here doesn't look so obvious) and taxis fare. Besides, free wifi all around. Breakfast is great with custom made omelets and waffle. Absolutely delicious!

Room Tip: Ask for Canal views

I've stayed here twice, four days each time. Impeccably clean room, severely over-priced water bottle ($8) and helpful service. Your credit card key is what runs the AC so it takes a good 15 minutes to cool the room down when you first enter. Breakfast buffet is included and there fruit, a hot cereal, some sort if eggs (scrambled, boiled, etc) and meat which could be bacon or the little hot dogs that I've seen in South America countries. The waiter will not " check" on you so make your wishes known

Room Tip: Only touch the elevator button once. Clicking it multiple times just turns it off and then you wait even longer

I stay in a view room, from where I could follow all the maneuvers of the boats entering and exiting the Canal. That is the best part, it's go almost no stop, so you can appreciate many different views under different lights at the comfort of your room!! The staff are Great!!! The room are of nice size and with good quality of mattress and pillows. The only problem is the noise from the street, the trains and the boats, if you want to have the windows opened, that is the price for the view. The breakfast was included and have nice fruit and other buffet options!! If I need I will be glad to came back!!

I've stayed at the Holiday Inn in the City of Knowledge numerous times over the past 4 years for work. The hotel has been consistently solid. As others have mentioned, positives include great breakfasts, friendly staff, clean rooms, etc.
The only complaint I have is the gym. The hotel has had the same 3 stationary bikes for the 4 years I've been staying at the hotel. 2 of those don't work and the other one is not a good model. The only excercise machine that is worth using is the treadmill. However, if someone is using it, you have no choice but to wait. The gym is also very small. Please consider updating the equipment in the gym. Thanks.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the canal side for the view...
