We stayed here based on other TA reviews. Very happy with this choice.
Room: Simple, but spacious, roomy, and clean. We had a safe, a fridge, a flat screen tv, and free wifi in the room. There are also computers with internet down in the lobby that are free to use. From our room, we had a partial view of the corkscrew-shaped building. The bathroom has only a stand-up shower, no tub, but the shower is big. We booked and prepaid online through hotels.com before leaving, and we had no trouble at all with the booking when we got there.
Breakfast: It was included in the cost of the room, which is the main reason we decided on this hotel. Simple, but sufficient. The breakfast selections included tortillas, watermelons, pineapples, cheese and cold cuts, breads and cereals, tea, coffee, and juice. They will make you eggs in the kitchen too, by request.
Location: Great! At the end of the street is the big Wyndham Hotel & Casino, so if you're lost (FYI, there are no numbers on the buildings and everyone gives directions by landmarks only), don't ask for directions to the Metro Hotel, ask for directions to the Wyndham Casino. It's a good landmark, and easy to spot from street level if you're walking and within the area. There are a lot of shops and restaurants to walk to around here. A few doors down is a small convenience store, M/S Chu, and there is a small pharmacy across the street. The stop for the City Sightseeing bus is not far, however their location has changed, so check with the front desk before you start walking.
Staff: Very helpful. We had questions about where to eat, and how to get around, and we also wanted to book a canal cruise. They answered all our questions, called the cruise company for us, and set up the taxi pickup and return for that day.
If I go back to Panama, I would stay here again. Very happy with this choice.
