Hotel Coral Suites
Ranked #27 of 115 Hotels in Panama City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2014

We stayed at this hotel for one week. We enjoyed our time there and it is a very convenient location in Panama City. The location on calle D is between 2 major Avenues, Via Argentina and Via Espana. There are many shops and restaurants found in either direction, including mini-marts and grocery stores.
The suite was large, but the bathroom was a bit small. Plenty of towels, but no face cloths. The kitchenette is very nicely equipped with a full sized fridge. Very comfortable king size bed.
The rooms either face the street, or look out onto an alley. Our room was at the back and our one window directly faced the window of the room across the alley. These rooms can be a bit dark, especially if you close the drapes for privacy. The crown moldings were a nice touch.
Roof top pool was very relaxing and a provided a nice break
The Wi-Fi seemed to work well, most of the time, if you stayed near the desk. No problem with wi-fi in the lobby or at the pool area.
Breakfast was great and there were small changes made each day so you could try different food and not have the exact same each morning. Great Panamanian coffee.
The only complaint was that the room smelled musty; it might be from the air conditioning unit and general humidity. Common areas were clean and well maintained, but our room never seemed to smell fresh, in spite of daily cleaning by housekeeping.
All the hotel staff were helpful and professional. The price was reasonable and an excellent value.
If visiting Panama City in the future, I would stay here again. Recommended.

I just stayed here two nights ago. We had a really large room with a full kitchen. The place was nice, good breakfast and the pool was on the roof which was fun. The area around the hotel was great. Lots of tasty restaurants and taxis everywhere.
I didn't think it was very clean. There were piles of hair in the corners and dirt. Not horrible but not great. Also, they didn't let us check in until after 2pm. The people at the front desk were "friendly" but not overly helpful.
Overall I would stay there again, but I think it's not much to talk about.

For me it was very hard to find a good Hotel with nice reviews in Panama city. But even the hotel I choosed after long research wasn't good at all. The hotel is non-smoking but the rooms smell a lot cigarets, very disgusting. Shower was bad no pressure, couldn't wash my hair. Breakfast was ok. Staff not really friendly.

This hotel was a good value for what it offered: hot buffet breakfast, spacious rooms, air conditioning, kitchenette with everything for simple cooking, a small roof top pool, washer and dryer facilities, and fitness room. The staff was very friendly and answered all of our questions.
The area offers many diverse restaurants, a 24-hour supermarket and other shops besides casinos. It was easy to get taxis and arrange tours to sites outside of the city or to the old parts of Panama City. More than anything, I would say that the value was what brought us to the hotel and what impressed us the most-along with the friendly staff.

We stayed four nights in the double suite. The room was modern, clean and spacious and we appreciated the extra touches not usually found in moderately priced hotels such as the crown moldings. However, since our room faced an alley, it was kind of dark for lack of natural light but was also quieter. The included breakfast is lacklustre but adequate if you prefer continental style. It is walkable to restaurants and shops. Like other neighbourhoods in Panama city, you have to cab it to the sights. This was our first visit to Panama and we eventually figured the 'taxi culture' aka charge the dumb tourists as much as you can get away with. So if you don't like being scammed, do NOT negotiate fare before getting into the cab. They have a system of fixed prices for Zones which is not posted anywhere. The longest trip should not cost more than $5 for a couple and many short trips for a single person are $1-2. Give them what you think trip is worth when you arrive at your destination. The traffic is horrendous and gridlocked at peak times. Allow plenty of time to get to dinner reservations etc. If you value light, ask for a room facing the street.

Room Tip: Rooms facing street have larger windows, are brighter.

Great restaurants nearby - Machu Piccu, 1985, Manolo's, etc.

Suite room was large and spacious. Enjoyed using kitchenette and frig. Pool and Full Breakfast were nice perks.

I liked the staff - very friendly and pleasant.

Only downside was wireless internet service - got mostly 1-2 bars for majority of stay and, wow, got 3 bars on one morning for just a few moments, so, getting remote work done was painfully slow and barely possible.
