just came back from panama city july 8--july 12, stayed at the parador $65 per evening with breakfeast of eggs toast and panamanian orange juice---hotel front desk spoke english well--armed security in front at all times, dont be afraid to ask front desk to let you see 2 or three rooms upon check in--before you make your decision. the rooms are basic with no in room safe or iron available resturant on site open from 7am to midnite--with decent food--rooftop pool overlook's panama city---beware this hotel allows guests which is great for the young single man such as my self---so if you have a family you might wanna spend and extra 10 dollors a eveing try the sevilla apt hotel up the block as no guests but those who checked in are allowed. this hotel is is a great location--the huge and popular venneto casino is walking distance every place else in panama city was a 3 to 5 dollor taxi ride away---MEN BE ADVISED!! alway's walk with your passport and NEVERRRRRRRR drink alcohol in the street---it's illiegal---the police will stop you...and try to extort money from you---with threats of jail for the eveing!!!

It's not the world's best hotel, but for the price it's fine. A cheapish hotel with a great location. The staff only seem to speak Spanish, so take your phrasebook.

MOLD and drippy air conditioners will feel like Chinese Water Torture. We stayed on the second floor near the stairway facing the green lot. At least we had a partial view. It may be in walking distance to the casino but the staff is rude. There is mold growing because there air conditioners condensation drips. The rooms are clean and painted bright white. Their computer internet room is very slow and full of computer bugs. The food in the restaurant was very rude. At least the hamburgers and fries tasted ok. We saw several prostitutes coming and going. The cab driver in front was a nice man. They lie and say that "no other rooms are available" to switch. The lady at the front desk has the worse attitude. This was my second least favorite place. We stayed here three days on a 21 day tour. LOUD RUDE MAIDS ALSO. RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

I travel internationally very frequently and have to say that this is one of the most unfriendly overpriced hotels i have ever stayed in. On entering the Ladies at the front desk were very unhelpful to the point of being rude. If i was not so tiered after a long trip I would have walked out. However I persisted as had been told this was a good hotel in a good area.

Having checking in the room looked like it was in the middle of being decorated, paint everywhere and plastic on the light shades.

Additionally a $120 deposit was required just to use a safety deposit box.

After one night i checked out and checked into a hostel not far from here. The price of the hostel was less than half of what i paid for this hotel and the service was very friendly and the room in a better condition.

I cannot understand how a hotel can operate with such rude and unhelpful staff and i would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone.

i stayed here the first week of nov '08. i showed up without a reservation. i got a room for $65 per night including tax. the rooms are basic but they have good house keeping. each time she left i'd take a deep breath and say "man it smells good in here". the laundry service was kind of expensive. the hotel does have off street parking available. in the lobby across from the front desk is a little room with 3 computers. they are (or were) free to use and the connection speed seemed fast enough. the restaurant in the lobby is fairly priced.(couple bucks) the beans and rice were to die for. LOL so good "to me". thats all i tried tho.

i liked the hotel location. i'll try to describe it. the street the hotel is on is(roughly) shaped like the letter "U". el parador is located at the bottom in the curve. off one of the legs leading inward is a street that deadends at the veneto hotel & casino. this is great if you want the casino near by but dont want to pay their room prices. i walked around all over the place. never felt threatened. i saw police alot and seems every hotel has armed security. one could say this is because of high crime. could just be to make tourists feel safe.

in the area of the hotel: MANY restaurants. there are two directly across the street. one had japanese (i'm guessing) and the other was a steak house. i didnt try either so i cant recommend. just outside the veneto there is a food court. puts me in the mind of what you see in the malls.

rental cars, a supermarket, fast food (mcdonalds, kfc, etc), shopping, western union, blockbuster video and a pharmacy are all close by. there are a couple of internet cafes with international telephones available. i called home a few times and never remember paying more than $1.50.

all in all (from my experience) i for sure would stay at el parador again.
