“Nice, reasonable hotel in an expensive city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2011

In a city that seems to be full of overpriced hotels, Hotel Milan is a very nice and affordable option. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are very clean. The air conditioning was very necessary in such a hot place. It's in a good location, very safe and easy to walk around, although it's definitely not the most picturesque part of the city. The rooms didn't have too many amenities (a mini-fridge and a microwave would have really been nice) but overall, it was clean and comfortable.

It was our last stop on a trip where we usually stayed in budget accomodations, so Hotel Milan was definitely more costly for us. That said, Panama City does not seem like a budget traveler's destination, and so in search of safety, cleanliness and AC, it seemed like the best bet. It was worth the splurge and very reasonable compared to similar options in the city.

The rate was very reasonable. The room was clean, spacious, air-conditioned. The front desk was courteous and helpful on many things. Great breakfast at the adjoining restaurant. Free internet in the lobby. A low-frills but great place to stay in the center of Panama City.

My husband and I stayed there for two nights. Once upon arriving in the country and before our departure. We made reservations well in advance. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, the price is right, the hotel has a good security system, cameras on all floors, garages, stairwells, elevators etc. The hotel is located in a nice, safe area, close to shops and restaurants. We only needed a place to stay overnight, and we were pleasantly surprised. It was perfect for our needs and inexpensive. We would stay here again. (I think that they are expanding the hotel because there is construction starting at 7am. We were already up and heading out, so it was of no concern to us).

The location is great. It's in a safe area, close to restaurants, car rentals, and a food store. The rooms are clean and they give you a great discount for cash.

Certainly there are lots of good comments to this hotel. I has to admit that room is good for the price you paid for it. But there are things that are truly wrong with the staff service. Policies in this hotel are so strict and without lots of sense. You cannot bring a guest to your room, no matter what. You feel that everyone in the hotel knows what are you doing since they got plenty of cameras on each floor. The staff likes to gossip about any hotel guests and about themselves as coworkers; that for me is a lack of respect to PRIVACY. They are not so courteous, just doing their jobs. It is so pleasant to have a nice smile and a good morning, not any of it do we get. I think they are expanding the hotel, but noise is so loud very early in the morning. Also housekeepers are loud, they do not consider there are still guests sleeping since vacations implies waking up late if one wishes. Finally, I had to add that the hotel have to improve the guest list of don´ts and improve the staff service. IT WAS TERRIBLE, need to consider a better service quality. You feel that everybody knows all your moves, need to be discrete. Would not recommend the hotel even if they offer free nights.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Milan. Very friendly staff. Clean Hotel. Great central location with convenient access to everything. We felt very safe walking around the neighboring areas. Will definitely stay here again. Convenient reasonably priced restaurant located in the hotel.

We used the cash option for payment ($57).

First, thank you to all of the travelers who took the time to write about this hotel. It is because of you that I picked this hotel and I am glad I did. Yes, it is true that the hotel does not allow two men or two women to share a room and I understood after I found out that the Wyndham hotel down the street is hub for women of the night. Hotel Milan is in a great spot and I walked so much around the city because the hotel is in a spot that provided me the option to walk as opposed to take a cab or risk my life on the Red Devil buses. The staff was very friendly and the food in the restaurant is FANTASTIC! The soups are out of this world and when I say seafood and chicken I mean big pieces for the price. While I wish the staff would have some basic English down they were very helpful and friendly. They are actually building on to the hotel, which will be able to accommodate families and larger beds.

If you need to take a tour, walk to the Wyndham hotel and visit the Turista desk. Make sure you ask for Raul as your tour guide. He did a great job translating in English and Spanish during my tour to the canal etc. I was the only English speaker on the bus besides him so he had a tough job but did a great job. In addition, if you need transportation to and from the airport you can book it from them and pay less than you would with a taxi. Don’t take a ride from the guy who hangs out at in front of the hotel. He’s annoying and he charges too much.
