This hotel is a bit away from some of the attractions but it is a great place. Rooms are large and comfortable. Art work in the lobby is exceptional and some of it is for sale. Internet worked very well, breakfast was excellent. Every one spoke good English. There are really nice restaurants and clubs within walking distance. Area is safe.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms left of elevator like room 825, etc. They do not have a good view.

This hotel is excellent in room size and comfort. Still misses some of the little things in service. Water pressure could be better in the shower. The staff were helpful. The hotel taxi service is approx double the cost of the yellow cabs. The location is good in the business district and about a 15 minute walk to a good shopping mall. Breakfast was good, and two choices for drinks which are reasonably priced. The barman in the bottom bar mixes good cocktails

An elegant and very comfortable hotel with very welcoming staff. I stayed nearly two weeks and was sorry to leave! I have stayed in several hotels in Panama City and this is my favourite. The only thing it lacks is views of the bay, but they are difficult to appreciate when one is asleep!

This hotel could rival a four seasons. We walked into a scented lobby was checked in quickly and up in our room in no time at all!! They room was lovely, spotless and comfortable. The bathroom is huge! and had a wonderful large soaking tub.

The hotel is amazing with the cool towels on arrival, beautiful rooms and great amenities.

The only down side was the WiFi. I happily paid the $10 for 24 hours but it only allows one device to be used at a time. That was cute in the 2001 but not anymore when I travel with 5 WiFi devices. Get with the times.

I stayed at the Trump and this is a much better hotel except the WiFi.

We spent one night here. The room was surprisingly small given the price, but it was very clean and well-appointed. The bathroom was enormous with a large tub and walk-in shower- felt very luxurious. The fancy toiletries and the nice robes added to the luxury vibe. One major complaint- the shower has some design problems and water kept getting outside the shower area into the bathroom zone. This lead to a slippery floor and wet socks. Put an extra towel down though, and you'll be fine.

The staff was very helpful and the restaurant attached to the hotel was sufficient for our needs.

Room Tip: Lower floors have unattractive views of neighboring building roofs. Aim to get higher up.

Our recent stay at Bristol Panama was perfect. The room was excellent!
But the great asset of Bristol Panama is the great service an attitude of their personnel. They are always looking to make you feel as royalty. Ramses in front desk, Alexander at the parking and Yerys as concierge were amazing! We are planning to come back next year!!!!!

Room Tip: The new tower is superb!!
