I stayed one week at Costa Inn Hotel with my mom on Dec 2011, price fit my budget perfectly. I think before rating this hotel or any other in Panama city you must understand its culture. Panamanians are not friendly, there are even signs on street (Albrook) that says: “Smile to the tourist”, so we shouldn’t blame the hotel for a rude treatment from the front desk and janitorial crew. I found the same problem with taxi drivers, store attendants, waitress and others, however there were few people who understood tourists must be welcome and treated with respect.
Above all, the owners who are Spanish were very kind and attentive; I liked the free shuttle to/ from Albrook mall, room service, breakfast buffet, restaurant menu, (that Cuban sandwich tasted so good), and I LOVED the tour operator Viajes florencia, nice tour guide.
I must mention our first night there the hotel double charged dinner to my credit card and I didn’t know it until I came back to work but I contacted the hotel, they apologized and wired the money back. I was happy for that.
Room was clean, small and comfortable and I’m planning to go back this December with some friends. Enjoy Panama!
