Nothing to add: just perfect. Great staff aswell at the reception as in the bar. Rooftop is great and only that part is a reason to book this hotel. Reception staff is acceptional, and totally not-panama-like. Friendly, at your service, good looking and speak englisch very well. Rooms are huge: like a ball room. One minor detail: no idea how the AC was working.

Hello Roel B,

We are very happy to hear that you had such an amazing time at Tantalo! Our staff is delighted to hear that their service was not only great, but better than you have experienced in panama. We apologize that the AC was not explained to you once you arrived to your room, rest assured it has become not only a habit but protocol to explain all of the features of a room to an arriving guest.

Finally, if there is any advice that you might want to give us on how to improve in order to make our service better, we would be more than happy to receive them and put them into effect so that the next time you are with us you can have an even better experience!

Thank you!

We stayed at the Hotel Tantalo over New Years. Located in Casca Viejo, this hotel is an excellent place to stay in order to explore the surrounding area and a short but continuously variable taxi cost to the downtown area. Room was spacious and clean. The entire staff was very welcoming and friendly. The included breakfasts were tasty and filling and there were a variety of great tapas style entrées for lunch and dinner. The roof bar is the ideal place for an afternoon or evening drink, New Year’s Eve party on the roof deck was outstanding with the beautiful night time panorama of Panama City as a background. The one caveat here was the blaring Latino- trash from the neighbouring building the next morning. (It’s either to spite the guests for partying all night on the roof bar or most of the neighbours are hard of hearing). We have been back on a few occasions for drinks. The Lulu margarita is excellent! Special “hello” to lovely Rita at the front desk.

I only stayed here one night but enjoyed my stay very much. The room was very large with a wonderful balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable. The location was excellent for walking around in the historic area. The view from the rooftop bar was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I am referring to the roof bar of the Hotel.Nice place to visit to watch the sunset, to zip a well prepared cocktail, I have tried, Mojitos and Margarita, from there in the hearf of the "Casco Antiguo" you are surrounded by the towers of the Cathedral, and farther other churches towers. At the front you can admire the Panama Bay and the skyline of the Cinta Costera
You can mingle with people of different ages, but mostly young persons, I love to visit itwith my husband and friends, one of my favorite spots in the Casco Antiguo..

We will echo all of the other comments about the hip and trendy vibe of Tantalo. Our room was very spacious with balconies overlooking all of the activity on the narrow streets below. And boy, is there a lot of activity! It seemed that about every third car that passed at night was a new Range Rover, Porche or Audi. And many of those people were coming to the rooftop bar at Tantalo.

We ate at the rooftop bar one night and it should also be on your bucket list if you are visiting Panama City. The food was great and the views and people-watching were both first-rate.

Having problems with the TV? The front desk will have someone there in five minutes. Leaving very early on the flight home? Here's some coffee to go, on us.

The setting of the hotel in the heart of Casco Viejo also can't be over-sold. Casco Viejo is the most interesting study in wealth and poverty side-by-side that we've ever seen. It seems pretty safe. There is a major police presence, probably due in part to the near proximity of the Panamanian Presidential Palace.

Travelers who are sensitive to noise will probably hate this hotel. When we say it's at the Throbbing Epicenter, we mean bass-drum throbbing. Until just before sunrise. For us, it was part of the charm of the place but others may not be so tolerant.

P.S. Tantalo: Could you please put coffee makers in the room?

Dear Gatorator.

Thanks so much for your review and also for your "bucket list if you are visiting Panama City" comment.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and certainly we will look into the coffee recommendation, also we have also introduce noise isolation earbuds for those customers that are sensible to the noise.

Look forward to welcome you in a future and thank you for spreading the Tantalo experience.

Kind Regards
