Very new, absolutely great HIE in the heart of Panama business area. The rooms are huge and definitely higher than HIE standards. 90 USD per night with free breakfast (poor, of course).
20 mins to the main shopping mall, 15 mins to another one, everything is accessible by cheap taxi. Great city for great days.

The hotel is very new which is not a bad thing - the room was clean and great bathroom and shower. We stay 1night -$20 from the airport and 20 minutes @ Saturday afternoon. If you want to go to the old city (worth the time) it's a $10 cab ride. They provide a breakfast to go if you have a early flight. It's a business hotel not a resort hotel -good for the price.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. The hotel is very difficult to find and it took us 2 hrs to get there from the airport! It is behind a church in the Financial district but since it is new was not available on the maps. It is on the st. parallel to the Riu.

After the bad traffic and getting there checking in should have been a breeze. We are Priority Gold members and had asked for a higher floor. Got a room on the 12th floor but found out it was occupied when we got there. Had to get a different room on the 7th floor. We did not get the std bottles of water etc due to the mixup. One of the staff members: David Hale (can't remember) was extremely helpful and worked hard to rectify the checkin issues. Another manager, Efran (?) was also very helpful and gave us excellent directions to the Panama Canal and other sights. There is a Metro station near by but we rented a car so did not use it.

The hotel is new and so clean and well organized. The room was a good size with a nice bathroom. There was wifi available which was fast. The std Express breakfast was ok. The hotel has a parking garage in the basement and you can park for free. Except for the checkin issues we had a pleasant stay. There are several restaurants in the vicinity so no shortage of places to eat. We loved "Beirut" a mideastern restaurant a block from the hotel.

I would recommend this hotel but please ensure that the cab driver knows how to get there. The front desk staff try very hard to assist you inspite of the language barrier.

Room Tip: Higher floor overlooking the back of the hotel.

This hotel is not located in the touristic area near Casco Viejo or at the sea front, but since Panama City is widely spread you soon need wheels anyway. And it's only a 5 minute walk to the (hop on hop off) busstop. The slightly off-center location is the only downside of this hotel: it is brand new, rooms are spaceous and spotless. Breakfast is not sensational but good. Staff is friendly and helpful. If you have a car: there are some free and guarded parking places behind the hotel. Pool is very small, but it is outside and a swim is very welcome after a warm day in this city at the sea but without beaches. The room price is remarkably low, and I doubt if you can get a better deal anywhere in this city. I give it only 4 * based on location. Highly recommended!

to come back to this hotel after an overnight to El Valle: clean sheets, nice towels, clean room, air conditioning.

This hotel is only a few blocks from a stop (Iglesia del Carmen) on the newly opened Metro (subway). The streets in this area intersect at angles, so it's easy to get lost walking to the Metro. Metro cards can be purchased from machines in the stations. The final stop at one end of the Metro is the international bus station and the Albrook Mall, which is huge.

The rechargeable Metro card purchased in the station is also good on Metro busses, but not to pay the exit fee at the bus terminal. A rechargeable card purchased at the bus terminal is good for all three.

The block which the hotel sits on is mostly office buildings, but restaurants and shopping are nearby. But, be careful, Panama City, especially at night is one big trip hazard.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back will be quieter as the hotel is on a busy street.

We stayed last week and was impressed by the size of the room. No carpets in the room!!!! For me is cleanet that way. Excellent beds and big bathroom. The pool is just for a splash so if you are taking kids is a no no. Breakfast is included and is ok. Take note that there is nothing attractive neat the hotel. The hotel is brand new we stayed there becausr we took a cruise.
