    Good

    Typical "low cost" hotel. Suggest that room is inspected before signing in. Check everything; Paper, Doors, Towels, Light Bulbs, etc. Make sure the desk turns on the a/c and that the tv remote works. Also there is no pool on the roof (some users wrote there was). Hot shower really good, first thing in morning. General area is okay for several blocks around the hotel. Front desk was open 24 hrs. Elevator worked good. Taxi's are easily available. Staff was friendly. Value for the money was good; if more amenities are wanted, then plan to spend $25+ more per night. Telephone in room worked okay. Tv had hbo, etc. Metro Bus service at corner. Wireless Internet worked okay in room.

    Maintenance needs to have better management. Repairs are haphazard and incomplete. Breakfast of coffee and toast only available after 0700. do not count on the "free" shuttle. There are no rooms or comfortable areas for smokers. "Dining Room" is cafe style and only has a minimum menu. Beds are "double" not king size.

    Friendly, low key, inexpensive.

    No water for several hours our second morning lasting all day and wireless connection worked only 10% of the time we were there. (2 nights) Apparently it worked fine in rooms closer to the front of the building.

    Poor customer service, the room assigned to us wasn´t clean, but they gave us another room. We had to ask for towels, and toilet paper, because they didn´t have any at the room. The desk receptionist didn't pay attention when we arrived, no greet at all. The a/c was not working. It was terrible, and the breakfast was pretty much toast, juice or coffee and only has a minimum menu that you have to pay extra for it. It wasn't a pleasant stay at all. When we left they didn't want to provide us with a invoice. They asked us to come back the next day to pick it up.

    En realidad es un hotel super economico! Mil veces mejor que el que me hospede en rio de janeiro por 70 dolares y este solo costo 35 por noche! Muy buenos servicios de traslado a los shoping y al aeropuerto de manera gratuita...

    Las habitaciones ni los banos tienen ventilacion! Las ventanas son fijas y no se pueden abrir lo cual genera una humedad orrible y mucho olor a humedad pero por 35 dolares pues nada se puede exigir

    Lo mejor del hotel, son las personas que ahi trabajan, las recepcionistas,la sra que limpiaba en la tarde, otra que hacia de todo y sobre todo el servicio de transfer desde el aeropuerto, hacia el hotel y viceversa y desde el hotel hacia los centros comerciales.La facilidad para accesar al servicio de metrobus, el cual es excelente.

    Realmente no me ha gustado para nada este hotel, las instalaciones llenas de goteras y humedades, la habitacion que nos dieron, el aire acondicionado, se congelaba a media noche y hacia un ruido terriblem apagaba el aire y luego una gotera que caia no se en donde no dejaba dormir. Luego la habitacion en 5 dias solo la medio limpiaron 2 veces,porque y que no habia personal..El desayuno pan con margarina, cafe y refresco de naranja. Ese hotel es un desastre.

    Ubicacion

    1. It is not a hotel, it is a backpackers hostel 8hovel9 2. THEY REFUSED TO ALLOW ME THE DESCUENTO JUBILADO BECAUSE THEY CLAIMED YOU WOULD NOT PERMIT IT. 3 There were no blankets, the AC was centrally controlled; the three beds (we asked for two) had to be touching each othrt (no space between) or the door could not be opened. 4. They promised a better room after the first night, but did not provide one. 5. Internet access was only next door, and had to be paid for. 6. Breakfast was woefully inadequate (coffee, juice, bread)

    Very good

    Ofrece transporte desde el aeropuerto al hotel y viceversa. También del hotel a los más importantes centros comerciales de Panamá. La atención fue buena

    El desayuno es sólo pan con mantequilla. Deberían poner otra variante. Los aires acondicionados de algunas habitaciones se congelan.

    Los cuartos tienen pobre apariencia, no todas la luces del cuarto estan operables, el internet no sirve en mi cuarto a menos de que yo baje a planta baja, y las dos ultimas noches el aire acondicionado no estaba funcionando bien.
