Clean, not only guestbook but entire hotel. Floors shine and atmosphere is most inviting. Bathroom on the small size. Hotel should offer contential breakfast as part of the package. Don't like ordering off a menu where everything had a price. We had one cup of coffee, googled McDonald's and went there for breakfast the two days we stayed. Safe hotel,... More

It has been a couple of years since I last stayed at this hotel. The rooms have new air conditioners, new bedding and the dining room has been updated. Comfortable bed, flat screen TV, internet service was not very good, and the front rooms facing the street should be avoided especially on weekends with a disco directly across the street.... More

Nothing great, but certainly nothing bad. Clean, accommodating staff, restaurant was closed on Sundays, not the best location, but I got there late and felt OK walking at night to a restaurant. Free underground parking. certainly was nice.

Central hotel. Rooms are decent size and clean.Beds quite comfortable. Dinner was wholesome and plenty of it. Wouldn't want to stay longer than overnight. I guess it's the old saying "you get what you pay for".

The room was neat and clean. Bathroom was clean. My favorite was nice water pressure and hot water!! It's hard to get actual pressure or hot water in Panama so I was very happy! The AC worked great.

This is my second stay when traveling to David, Chiriqui. Hotel is located in the center of the city. Restaurants, drugstores, convenience stores nearby. Park is just a few feet away. Stayed on a single room, pretty clean, well mantained. Good working A/C, conventional 21" TV. Friendly staff. Private parking. Hotel has a restaurant with complete menu and prices.

Centrally located and with all needed amenities at a reasonable price. We have been staying here for many years. The place is clean, comfortable and with all the basics that are needed. There are different type of rooms and space. Usually I request quadruple rooms for family and/or rooms with refrigerator. Food at hotel is consistent and good!
