“TRADITIONAL HOTEL”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

If you are looking for a small Boutique Hotel and not a big chain that's the hotel
to choose. Excellent service, clean and large suites, surrounded by excellent
restaurants, but no view (the only negativ point).
We'll definitely come back.

We got to the hotel at around 9am (early flight from Bocas del Toro). We were expecting just to leave our bags and come back at a more reasonable time. But the staff was amazing and got a room ready for us in about 20 minutes.

Although not in casco viejo, the hotel is conveniently located in the financial district. There is a good choice of restaurants on walking distance of the hotel. The first room we had was cosy, like an attic, however it had only one small window with view of a wall. It was no problem to move to another room with better views. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is ok, not too much choice but sufficient. Staff is friendly. Late checkout at 3 pm was nice. The restaurant Alkimia serves an excellent paella.

Room Tip: As the hotel is surrounded by high buildings, not all rooms have a view.

The hotel is in the finance district , where there is not a lot of stuff to do.. we mostly took the cab to casco antiguo and went for dinner there. The room was very nice and clean; as was mentioned before little things may not have been perfect ( no tissues in bath, no batteries in safe) but overall everybody was very accomodating. We had a little snack in our room as a welcome for our anniversary; the receptionist helped us finding the tour guides that were soo late for our canal transfer, they gave good recommendations for foods and tours. The breakfast is a nice mix between continental and local food. Very nice and pleasant stay.

This hotel is located approx 10 minute walk from Panama City's coast line, close to restaurants, shops and bars. Staff were helpful in recommending us restaurants (and booking them for us), allowing us an early breakfast when we had to leave early, booking taxis and advising us where was suitable/safe for us to walk to. The rooms are beautifully decorated and large with cable tv, spacious bathrooms and lots of seating space. Breakfast was continental with lots of choice including ham, cheese, cereal, fruit, eggs, bread and pastry. Internet worked well throughout our stay.

Immaculately clean, furnished with antiques (or good copies!), a real "old world" ambiance, spacious and gorgeous rooms, marble bathrooms, and remarkably quiet for in the middle of a Latin American city. VERY unassuming exterior provides a great surprise inside.

All staff went out of their way to be helpful, spoke adequate English (my Spanish is marginal--both front desk staff had excellent English), and were professional and competent. Unfortunately, we only got a handful of hours on property, but we enjoyed them in inverse proportion to our available time. Could easily have spend many more days enjoying great hospitality.

Having a restaurant on-site was VERY convenient, and it was certainly adequate. Had I a lot more time, it might've been fun to check out something more "local"; but, given the time constraints the hotel restaurant was perfect.

The hotel arranged for driver Benjamin to meet us at the airport for hotel shuttle, then the next day to the port at Colon, then a week later from Colon to airport. Each time he was there early, with a very visible sign with our names on it, drove safely and efficiently, and got the job done well for us.

It was not inexpensive, given that this is a still-developing country; but the outstanding experience makes it still a quite good value.

Having read the outstanding reviews for the Hotel DeVille, we were excited to stay here. However, we have not had the experience that others relate. The staff is friendly and accommodating; however, the little touches that make a hotel comfortable are missing. Such as, an extra roll of toilet paper in the bathroom (we had to ask for it), only one hand towel (there are two of us), no tissue for the bath, a broken magnifying mirror, the hair dryer (theirs) shorted out in the plug, the air conditioner cannot be adjusted leaving it very cold in the room 24 hours a day. Perhaps we just have a bad room (#31); however, the room itself is lovely if a bit dark. We aren't wimps, we travel about six months of the year in all kinds of conditions, but we have the experience to know when the management just isn't in touch with the small but important things.

Room Tip: If you need light for working (or even dressing) don't choose room #31.
