Hotel Bali Panama
Ranked #1 of 3 Chitre B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 March 2012

Not overflowing with character but clean, spacious rooms. It's a friendly place where they can give you plenty of tips about local transport. The hotel is very central; you can see the Cathedral from the balcony and hear the clock tolling out the Westminster Chimes, in case you're nostalgic for Big Ben! The pick of the cheap restaurants is the Aire Libre on the opposite side of the plaza.

I loved this hotel and the town. It is small, quaint and centers around the church. The hotel is a two minute walk to anywhere in town.

Our room had two huge beds, closet, TV, warm showers and was clean. Each morning breakfast and coffee are made to order.

The purpose of the trip was the Festival of the Virgin of Mercedes, but I would come again as it was a nice change of pace from Panama. The town was buzzing with excitement from the parades and the hotel was right in the midst of it all.

This place is located right by the church in the center of the city. It was a cheap bus ride from the chitre bus terminal. No need to pay for a taxi. There are many restaurants and bars close by. The room was clean and safe/secure. Give this place a try if you're in the area.

I went with my boyfriend, we went for hight season, since it was the time of "feria de Azuero", "azuero fair" the rate was 66.00 per night, usually this hotel is 43.00 per night, for 2 people in a double bedroom. the hotel is OK, you have WIFI in the lobby for free, some bedrooms can catch connections but not all of them, now, tall people might have a hard time using the bathroom since spaces are kind of small, the staff are really nice, and willing to help if you want to go to a specific place, what I loved about this hotel was the location, in the middle of chitre, so if you want to walk, could be a short walk, it's basically a hotel just to sleep and have coffe, You MUST have their coffee, their restaurant only offers Indonesian food and only 3 plates, so you might want to look for other choices which is easy to find since in Chitre they have all kind of foods, restaurants even your favorite franchises. If I have to go back to Chitre, for sure I'll stay at Bali Hotel.

Had an great time. The hotel is in the center of Chetre and the price is fantastic. Carlos is the manager. He is educated in the US and is very helpful in making the stay great.

The hotel is not a flashy or trendy night spot but there are some spots within walking distance, as is the small casino in town. The hotel is one block from the main square in town.

We read the reviews of this hotel and stayed here our first night in Chitre. The price was a couple of dollars higher than what the T.A. site is saying. We have traveled a lot in Latin America and do not look for luxury, but this room was awful!
The room had been swept and mopped, but was still not clean. Room was dark. The shower tiles were stained with black. The faded linens on the bed were so worn that you could see through them. There were two beds in our room - one double bed and a twin. The twin was like a hammock. Although there was supposed to be free Wi-fi, I was not able to connect. The country's free "Red" internet is not available at this hotel and since the owner had been using the lobby computer, I was not sure if it was her personal computer or for guest use.
This hotel's restaurant offers Indonesian food. It was okay ... not great. There are 3 menu choices for Indonesian food. Something was wrong with the restaurant section so we had to eat on the balcony. The best thing about this hotel's restaurant was it's coffee - delicious and cheap.
A much better choice is Hotel Rex around the corner. (I have left a review.)
