I recently stayed at this hotel for a one week business trip.
The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms are large and spacious with 10 foot ceiling. There is a washer and dryer ensuite, tucked away in a fully equipped kitchen.

A morning breakfast was offered each day, as part of the accommodation fee and was available from 6:00 am until 10:00.

An all round good choice for the business traveller.

Room tip: only four rooms per floor. Book a room on higher levels to lessen traffic noise.

We have little kids so traveling is more of a hassle. Our best solution usually is to try to find a hotel with a small kitchen. this is not easy to find in Panama City but we were very surprised to find that the Torres de Alba checked off all the boxes!

I would qualify this by saying we stayed in the tower three, which is the newest tower in the group. Reviews for the first two towers vary a lot, but all seemed great for tower three.

Checkin could not have been friendlier or more helpful. I booked the executive suite but got a great discount using Expedia. The front desk gave us an ocean view room on the 19th floor.

Each floor has only four units wrapping around 25% of that part of the building, I think you might have an incredible view from any room.

We touched a button on the wall and all the blackout screening starting lifting up and we could see out for miles. What a fancy touch. Everything was clean and spotless, the kitchen was wonderful, it even had a washer and dryer (Bosch). I was disappointed with the washer and dryer as especially the dryer did not get anything dry as it does not vent outside. Plus Bosch used to be much better quality but I give them an A+ for their intent!

Bathroom was nice but we missed not having a tub. The shower was huge and hot water never ran out. The faucets were modern and the shower head was about 12".

Elevators are clean and fast, never had to wait more than a minute or so.

All in all, this was the place to stay while in the city. It is near shopping, near transportation, access to everything is close by.... several large malls nearby, and Manolo's restaurant which is famous for it's incredible home cooked food and service.

The breakfast was OK but could have been much better. The pool we decided not to use at it did not have a shallow area and the kids were afraid to enter.

Good job ALBA..... we will be back.

PS: Panama City does not seem to have much in the way of kids activities.... they could do better.

Room tip: Ask for tower three

Excellent location, great service, clean, friendly staff, free parking, delicious breakfast, and free Wi-Fi! I have been staying at Torres de Alba since 2008 and I never had a complain.. We visit Panama frequently and the staff knows me by my first name. The area is very safe. I love sitting outdoors reading and relaxing. One of the best hotels in Panama! Ask for Derrick for exceptional service! He is AMAZING!!!

Room tip: Rooms on the higher floors have an amazing view!

I took the advice of some people here to stay in the newer tower. I was extremely happy with my choice (not having seen the other towers though). The apartment itself was great, high floor with great views. You have a fully fledged kitchen with washer and dryer, El Rey supermarket is a five minute walk away. The breakfast was excellent - decent spread of stuff and very good coffee. Didn't use the pool but it looked fine. I can heartily recommend this apartment/hotel. Location perhaps not so suited for touristy stuff but with taxis so cheap, who cares?

Thank you so much for your comment. Both type of suites are really good but I agree with you that the superior tower has something special and the views are amazing. Hope to see you again in your next visit to Panama.

Hotel is located in a Perfect Location; The Veneto Casino & Hotel is directly across the street; Via Espana is down the block, where upon making a left turn and cross the street is Gran Morrison, great for souvenirs and Guyaberas. El Rey Supermarket open 24 hours, where one can get all the groceries galore, local Panamanian foods, a coffee shop where you can get fresh pan (bread)
