“Avoid uless you like bed lice.”
Reviewed 26 July 2007

This place stinks here are some highlights.

Beds with nysterious stains
Beds that collapase as you sit on them
Disgrunteled Consierge
Dirty Sheets
Doors that are falling of hinges
Lack of anything that will bring you joy except for a burnt out TV

Stay away!!!

  • Liked — Leaving it.
  • Disliked — Having to sleep on the hotels towels cause they were the only sheet without a stain.

I came to the Centroamericano during a fairly weird junction in my life. I was courting a girl from Panama (who I eventually married), and since it just wasn't proper for me to stay at her home, I stayed in this hotel for a full month. Cost me a little under $500. At the time, I had absolutely no grasp of Spanish, so the staff went to great pains to take care of me. I thought I had made a new friend there, but he apparently was one of the local undesirables, so the lady at the desk phoned my (then) girlfriend to tell her who I was hanging out with, so she came and gave me hell. :)

There is a little resturaunt (La Libertidor?) attached to the hotel, with pretty good food. Great burger, and they even had bottled Guinness, one of my personal favorites.

I had a single room with a small balcony. Not very many special features like pools or anything like that, but they did offer a laundry service, which was nice. Great view of the mountains beyond Panama City. Easy walking distance from Via Espana. (Point of interest, hotel is adjacent to Cuban Embassy)

If I have reason to stay in that area of Panama City again, I would definitely consider staying there again.

Two negative points: The hotel is very close to government buildings, so midday parking can be difficult, if not expensive. I had rented a car, which I parked in front of the hotel overnight, and came out the next day to discover all the lights stolen from the car. Wish for secured parking!
