“Cool independent hotel in a good location, with great staff”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

This is a nice independent hotel, good if you don't want to stay in a chain (e.g. the Mariott which is round the corner and has the worst "music" in the world playing in its ghastly "sports bar"). Nice big rooms, although don't expect a view as it's low-rise compared to surrounding buildings. Superb staff - special mention must go to Candy, who upgraded me from a large rom to a two-storey, three-room suite! Location is within 5 minutes' walk of dozens of typico bars and restaurants on Calle Uruguay.

We stayed here for a total of 4 nights, after a break in which we went up to Boquette. This is a great location and easily accessible to restaurants, bars and other places with a "local" flavour. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, when we asked for a room with more light they immediately moved us and remembered our preference when we returned. It has a homely atmosphere and, what we found really useful, a small business area with internet access. The rooms are large and comfortable. But more than anything I can't say enough about how helpful the staff were, the receptionist even came with me to the hairdresser next door to enquire about a haircut! Thank you to the staff of Hotel Deville.

Hotel Deville is an attractive smaller hotel on a quiet street that is within walking distance of several good restaurants like Beirut (round the corner) and Market (5 or so blocks away on Calle Uruguay). The staff is very friendly and it's more of a personal experience than a big hotel like the Marriott which is just down the street. The manager helped us make airline reservations and we used the free business center computers to check email and make travel arrangements. Our room was large and clean with a marble shower and a nice bed. The rate includes breakfast with a buffet including hot dishes and made to order eggs. They also gave us a welcome cocktail, which was a nice touch.

Hate to criticize hotel that upgraded us to Junior Suite on a weekend special rate, but the excitement over the two-person tub got a splash of cold water when we learned they use electric heat for the water instead of gas heaters. The water was cold-to-lukewarm, so we talked to the front desk, who sent a repair guy, but when it was still cold, they said they didn't want to scold us, which was funny because it wasn't even warm, let alone hot. Second time the repair guys came, they explained it's electric heat, can't get hot water and that they constantly tell the hotel to change to gas heaters. We loved the room save the shower, so it was cool, but we felt the reception wasn't exactly honest about the water issues. Also, when we checked out, they added tax to the bill, which they weren't supposed to, though they corrected it after a bit of arguing. But you know, you hate to leave a place after an argument. That said, great location, beautiful hotel, nice staff.

The staff here were very nice and accommodating. The rooms are huge and nicely appointed but very dark. The hotel is in a very good location and you can easily walk to bars and restaurants on Calle Uruguay.

My boyfriend and I (in our mid-20s) were looking for somewhere upscale but affordable to stay in Panama City. We completely lucked out by coming across Hotel Deville. The rooms were lovely and spacious: beautiful antique furniture, luxurious bathroom, huge tub, extra table and desk.. tons of space. The quality is absolutely as nice as the Marriott down the road where we stayed our first night. But what made Hotel Deville priceless was it's impeccable staff. They bent over backwards to help us find drivers, make reservations, call tour companies for us. They were incredible. We traveled from Panama City all across the country but stopped back at Hotel Deville to store our luggage before flying out on our last day. They were so accommodating. Oh, and did I mention... great breakfast! Anyway cannot rave enough about this little gem. We would go back in a heart beat!

Throughout our move to Panama over two years, we have used the Hotel DeVille exclusively. We literally are treated like family. Every member of the staff goes out of their way to accommodate any request we have. The hotel itself is a gem, the location is perfect, and every visit has far exceeded any expectation we may have had. From the doormen, reception, reservation, housekeeping, breakfast staffs to the management staff, these people couldn't be nicer or more efficient. We have brought friends and family to the hotel, as well, and they echo our feelings. We would highly recommend Hotel DeVille.
