“"Hotel Centroamericano", Panama City, Panama”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

PROS:

Very reasonable price, which includes breakfast. Breakfast menu had several options to choose from, and were delicious, especially the liver!!! Clean hotel/room (was told that the hotel was remodeled around 5 years ago or so). Great location, in my opinion. Available room safe. Hot water always. Several regular computers for guests to use. One washer/dryer, which we did use.

CONS:

If you are looking for a gym or pool, there is none here. This is a very small hotel. Also, it is a shame that there are no small fridges in the room; we needed one for a medication. The staff did provide us a foam ice chest, which we did have to empty and refill with ice on a daily basis. Room plugs are tucked away, and in inconvenient locations. Absolutely nooooo counter space in bathroom; we ended up using the top of the toilet tank for this. Night manager not friendly at all. Room is very small, although it was manageable. No trash can for room, only a small one in bathroom.

**But, all in all, an overall positive experience here, which I would recommend.

This is a basic hotel at an excellent price. Very clean. No frills. The breakfast is basic and good enough (coffee, fruit, a juice--not so fresh--, eggs or pancakes) and served in the hotel cafe which has cheap dishes and great fruit juices. The airconditioner and the water pressure gave us some trouble but the management was attentive. The TV has a good selection of channels, but mostly in Spanish. The nearby neighbourhood might look a bit rough but it is OK. It is good to visit the Casco Viejo (the old city centre), which is a good 20-25 minute walk. For the rest, try the newest metro in the Americas (it opened this April 2014). There are two metro stations nearby the hotel. The one that is now open is Santo Tomas metro station, and is on Calle 38 (the hotel is on Calle 34). You can ride to the end of the line to Albrook, where there is a huge shopping mall, and where you find the bus terminal for the rest of Panama and Central America. The domestic airport is also in Albrook.

We were looking for a place to stay for one night on our way through Panama City. The hotel was clean, friendly service, hot water, and comfortable beds. The hotel was conveniently located near Albrook airport. The neighborhood was quiet, and also a quick cab away from Casco Viejo. Overall, a decent stay & a great value for one night but not for multiple nights.

We wanted to splurge and get a decent room for our time in Panama City. We were extremely surprised and happy to see the room actually looked like the pictures on their website. The staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast was quite nice. It seems like they actually do listen to feedback as problems Previously commented on have been resolved, such as bathmats in the shower and clean shower stalls.

The only recommendation would be to get thicker/darker curtains as the room gets quite bright from sunrise and spoils a good sleep in.

This was a splurge for us so we didn't mind the cost, however it could be a bit expensive if on a budget.

Clean rooms, ac, hot shower,nice staff. What more could I want? Hotel restaurant wasn't the greatest, but other than that, all was good.

I'm supposed to write more, but that's all I had. And this still isn't enough. Sometimes tripadvisor is really annoying in their requirements.

Room Tip: Not sure. I wasn't there long.

We moved here for one night after getting virtually no sleep at the much higher priced Casa Nuratti. It was very basic, but it was clean, pretty spacious, and had a fridge. The room we were in was also very quiet. A cooked breakfast was included. Absolutely no complaints.
