“Best hotel in Panama City for the quality, location and value!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

I stayed here last week and I just have to leave a review about how much I loved it. As soon as I stepped into the Toscana Inn, I was greeted by the friendly staff. The lobby is beautiful and clean. This 6 level hotel is immaculately decorated with flowers, hand painted original artwork in the hallway of every floor and nice furniture. The terrace on the 6th floor is such a calm & relaxing space. Be sure to visit the dining room next to the lobby. Breakfast is free! For dinner I tried the fish, fettuccine, and traditional panamian chicken soup and everything was delicious. The best part was the pineapple smoothie & flan. Another thing I want to mention is how spacious, clean and comfortable the rooms are. The price is such an amazing deal for what it's worth. You can't beat this hotel. It is located in a convenient area (restaurants, casinos, shops are all within walking distance) and everyone is friendly & helpful. I will visit again and recommend anyone to stay here!

We stayed at Toscana Inn for 5 nights. It’s a relatively small hotel in Panama City, well-located in El Cangrejo neighborhood, with lots of restaurants nearby. The hotel is clean and has very comfortable beds. Breakfast was correct. However, the street around the hotel was somehow dirty and smelly.
The only complaint: being on vacation, we sometimes like to have a quiet morning and be able to sleep in. It was impossible because every morning the housekeeper would be shouting in the corridor and slamming doors. We had a peaceful morning only once, because there was a different housekeeper that day.
Overall we had a nice stay, but if we were to return to Panama City we may try another hotel.

I selected Toscana Inn Hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and I was not disappointed. The bed was very comfortable, staff was very nice, breakfast was good, and there are two computers with free internet in the lobby. My showerhead popped off from the wall and the the air conditioning was dripping and as soon as the desk was informed, someone was there to fix the problems. There is a very handy roof terrace on the 6th floor. If you know Panama, forget about using street names, but every taxi driver was familiar with Toscana Inn Hotel whose clientele are Panamanians and folks from around the world - not just full of Yankie tourists. The area is safe, shopping, casino, and restaurants are all within easy walking distance. I looked forward to staying at Toscana Inn Hotel when I returned back to the City, especially as a solo traveller.

Room Tip: 6th floor rooms at the back of hotel, but not at the back door due to use of patio

Toscana Inn was terrific. It's in the financial district and so safe for walking around (via Espania where you can catch the metro bus to almost anywhere is just a few minutes away). And the staff is incredibly friendly and eager to please. The lodgings themselves are terrific - new furnishings, comfortable rooms. And there's a great rooftop patio for taking in the city or an impromptu dinner on the cheap. Best of all, the free breakfast in the morning is a *substantial* breakfast. There are three trays of hot dishes which vary everyday (usu one with egg, one with starch, one breaded substance) and really good fresh fruits.

You really can't beat the value you get here for this price point. Sure you could stay cheaper in a hostel or if you are lucky enough to get a nice place in Casco, but this is a really great place.

Room Tip: See if you can book on the 6th floor for easy access to the rooftop patio

We arrived in the evening. The hotel-organized Shuttle (30$) pickes us up from the airport, right in time. We had a great stay at the hotel and explored the whole city by feet! The king size bed was very good and the breakfast delicious. One and only the distances to the main attractions are a bit long.

We were impressed by Toscana Inn and would stay there again in a heartbeat if we returned to Panama.
Our first impressions were of a comfortable lobby with friendly desk workers, in an area with a lot of decent restaurants that were within walking distance.
The room was comfortable, clean and the blankets and sheets were high quality. Breakfast, which included hot and cold food and is included in the price of the room, was delicious.
We also stayed in Balboa Inn for the same price, and the difference was like night and day for us. We recommend the neighborhood and appreciated the amenities of this hotel. Watching the New Year's Eve fireworks from the 6th floor garden was truly memorable.
