“Affordable and Nice”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

My family and I booked Costa Inn after searching the internet widely for affordable hotels to stay in the summer of 2011 (never mind Tripadvisor only gave me up until Nov' 2011 as the date i went) .

What i really appreciated was the shuttle services to and from the airport and those to Albrook Mall, all complimentary.

The rooms are simple but comfortable enough to get a good night's rest. Do not forget to let reception know that you'd like the A/C on when you return from your shopping/ sightseeing (they tend to turn it off while you are out to conserve electricity). Panama is quite humid and you would rather not bake in your room.

Breakfast is included in the price you pay and i must say that i wasn't disappointed with the selection of food and fruits.

The staff are typically pleasant and willing to assist in any way possible.

Not really much to say about this hotel. It's ok but nothing special. Reasonably cheap, ok breakfast, pretty central. Best thing was the roof top pool - not very big but never busy - with great views over the city.

I choose this hotel for the price, thought it was great for an overnight stay, had a flight next morning and shuttle service was complimentary. First the hotel needs a renovation big time. The room is so tiny I had a bad night due the bed too small for two people. The complimentary shuttle has certain hours so I had to pay a taxi 25usd to take me to the airport. The photos available are totally photo shop. The only thing that I like about this hotel was the security card to enter the elevators and enter your room. I will not recommend this hotel at all.

The room was clean but desperately in need of upgrades. The location was also not very pleasant. If the rates were lower then it probably would have been justified. On the positives - the staff were helpful, the view of the city from the rooftop was nice, and the restaurant served tasty seafood.

Basic rooms, but reasonably clean. Excellent location, in the city centre. Has a convenient 24 hours restaurant. Breakfast not very good. Free airport shuttle service, but I had to wait approx. 1 hour when I arrived due to pick up of 4 other passengers on other flights.

Free airport shuttle and pet friendly. Could not get the free wifi to work but the room was adequate for our stay for an early morning flight.

The hotel is good for a cheap clean place to sleep and it's free shuttle to and from the airport. The average cost for one person is $25 to or from the airport. If there are two of you the $60 a night hotel rate plus pick up and drop-off becomes a great bargain. The hotel is right in the middle of downtown Panama City and no more than a $10 cab ride to any part of the city. There are numerous good varied cuisine restaurants within walking distance. I would not book a week here but the first and last night will save you money. They have free internet and use of a desktop in the lobby to check emails or do research.
