A Decent Effort

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 May 2017via mobile
Starting with the positives: well situated location and welcoming staff. Good air conditioning and wifi throughout the building and structurally everything worked fine! Laundry service in house and computers for use if needed.

Negatives: our shower was often cold/mildly warm, and quite pathetic in terms of stream (often more of a terminal dribble). The bathroom door did not shut and had to be held closed. Safe did not work and batteries for said device had leaked acid which ended up on my fingers. Bed was over firm and surprisingly short - my feet were hanging off the end!

A decent effort for a hotel, and good budget value, but seemed to have some fraying around the edges.

The Hotel Centroamericano Hotel is hard to recommend. We had a couch outside our room that had to be shoved back and forwards between our room and the room across so we could enter and exit the room. The bed was a small double and the internal facing room we had allowed so much light in through the broken vertical blinds that we had to tape newspaper over the window. The room did have a TV, safe and a walk in wardrobe and was clean but there was no hot water for the shower. The WIFI barely worked in the room. There is a restaurant with cheap breakfast and the bar has cheap drinks which is necessary as there isn’t much choice nearby. We would not stay at this hotel again.

A bed, fairly comfortable. TV and ok wifi. Shower not very hot. View ok. Location is ok, close to old part of the city. The woman who works the front desk is super nice. If your on a budget this is a good place.

Close to the Panama canal visitors centre and domestic airport. Basic hotel with ensuite, air conditioning and a tv. No tea and coffee making facilities. No fridge. Free good wi-fi. Safe. Restaurant downstairs was basic, barely edible and overpriced. Lots of European and American tourist staying here but non of the staff speak English? If you want to stay in this part of the city and if you get a cheap deal. Hotel was clean but basic.

Room tip: Worth a look if you're on a budget

I stayed here as part of a tour group for 2 nights. The location is very central - very close to the main Chinta Costera with it's walk /cycle ways along the waterfront and about 30 minutes walk to Casco Antiguo (old town). We did have an issue with having no hot water in the showers. The maintenance man came to check it out and said we'd need to let it run for up to 20 minutes... I don't think that was a reasonable remedy but as we were only going to be there 2 nights we didn't want to change room (this was the 2nd day at this stage). Subsequent showers revealed NO HOT WATER - no matter how long we let the shower run. I reported this again but just got an apologetic shrug of the shoulders. Luckily the water was at least tepid not cold. Apart from that no problems with the hotel. The bar / restaurant is very reasonably priced for snacks - e.g. toasted sandwiches etc (that's all I had in there).
