“Clean, friendly & affordable hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

This hotel was our base for our travels throughout Panama. We initially planned to stay for two nights, but added an extra day at the beginning of out stay and two at the end of out trip. While the hotel is no frills (no pool, lounge etc) it is clean, well maintained and relatively modern. Rooms are spacious with a double bed which was not the most comfortable, but not the worst we experienced either. They do have suites with a king size bed, large tub and bar area which they do not pre-book but you can request and if available upgrade to when you arrive. We did on out last two nights and enjoyed the extra space. There is quiet airconditioning in the rooms, TV. alarm clock, phone etc. We stayed on front and back side of the hotel and the rooms are quiet.

The staff do not speak or really understand english, but they were more than patient with my less that impressive attempts to speak spanish and everything worked out. The even called to make dinner reservations for us. The bonus, the day manager, Ana, is around for the better part of the day, is fluent in english, and extreme;y helpful.

The hotel is centrally located in the banking district, among a number of other hotels. It is waking distance to a number of restaurants and located in an area where you can go out for a walk at night. Secure parking availalble. as is Wifi and an internet computer in the lobby.

It is very easy to get anywhere in Panama City from this locations and it never cost us more than $5 to take a taxi anywhere we wanted to go, Casco Viejo, the ruines, Metro park (highly recommended), Metro Mall (high end shopping), Albrook mall, etc.

Police are everywhere, all the time in Panama and safety was never a concern. We ate dinner at Manolos's cafeteria, La Posta, & Las Tinajas, all within waking distance. We receommed them all.

There is small restaurant on the main floor which serves up a decent breakfast. The hotel is expaning to include the attached building and more rooms will be available soon.

Room Tip: There is nice view from the front of the hotel and nothing at the back, so if that matters to you, r...

This hotel was very inexpensive and in a convenient location. Shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. Comfortable room. Helpful staff at front desk. Good breakfast in the restaurant. Helpful if you know Spanish here, but you could probably manage without it.

Room Tip: You are not going to have a great view here, as it is in the middle of the city, but the rooms are f...

The Hotel Milan may not be the most extravagant hotel in Panama City but it shines in service and great value. This hotel is a bargain for the cost with a helpful and friendly staff. Thus I give it a 5. I like to stay there when I fly and I leave my car there during short trips. Shopping nearby is good and my favorite restaurant, the Rincon Suizo is 200 meters away!

When we go to Panama City, Panama, we usually stay at the Hotel Milan. The staff is friendly, rooms clean, and it is close to many restaurants and shopping. Security is wonderful. They screen everyone coming through the front door, and it is a nice, secure feeling. They also have secure inside parking. For the price this is a great place to stay. The suites are slightly more, but have a king sized bed, a mini fridge, and are a lot roomier.

I stay'd in room 413 for 12 days.
Large room with privet Safe.
cleaned daily :)
Very quiet and secure.
Shame there is no little in the room.
But there is a ice box in the hallway.
Otherwise price in $ cash was great.
Location is in the center of the City.
Walking Distance to All Pubs /Bars, clubs, Casino and lots of Resturants.
Close to 24hrs RAY Supermarket with Pharmecy also 24hrs.
I ate a Spanish omelet in the downstairs Hotel cafe, it was tasty :)
Overall Expiriance from Nov 24 to Dec 6 2011 ROOM 413 was FANTASTIC & I RECOMEND IT.
VALUE FOR MONEY & SIMPLE SERVICE.

The hotel is everything that has been said before, clean, big rooms, great location, very helpful front desk in particular Anna.
The annexe extension wil be completed by February, the building works where not a problem.

The only downside is as has been reported on before are the luke warm showers.

All in all basic but excellent value for money at $65.00 if you pay cash.

For a good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants go to Calle Argentina two blocks away. Perfectly safe neighbourhood.
