“The most awful experience ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2009

Bad and dangerous place! Rooms with no fresh air and surprise surprise – no windows are opening! We found: noisy old conditioners, old and stinky bedspreads, old hard with no shape at all pillows, bathroom with missing and broken tiles. Ceilings were stained with brown horrible stains from bad leeks. Restaurant was open only few hours in the morning, food was ok, but we were waiting for ever to be served. The price was too high for the food we ate.
We stayed for a week and booked for another 3 days after a week in Taboga Island just because we couldn’t find any other available hotel in Panama city, before fly home to United Kingdom. Second stay was just a nightmare as our room was rubbed just after arrival! We left only for 15 min to grab something to eat from the corner shop. We are convinced burglary was set up. Police was called, but it was waste of time...There are cameras and we saw on the record 2 men walking into our room gust after we left and leaving after few minutes with our staff with no rush or worry. We lost our money and expensive personal belongings, including my husband documents. Rest of stay was only stress and worries as we spent all our time in embassy, police station etc.
