Occidental Panama Fifth floor room
For the price it's worth it. Valet parking day and night for free. Walking distance to restaurants, banks, post office and shopping. The bed slept very well and I'm hard to please in that area. Large showers enough for two if necessary. Limited TV channels about 8 maybe and only one in English.
Good Location, Good Value
Overall the property was clean and comfortable. It was nice to have bath robes in the room but complimentary coffee would have been nice especially when there was a coffee maker in the room. I found the towels to be quite thin, only 1 bath towel for each person and only 1 hand towel was provided. Breakfast was reasonable for Panamanian standards though it would have been nice to have been told where the dining room was on check in. A booklet in each room explaining the amenities in for the hotel would have been appreciated. The location was good as there were a variety of restaurants, patisseries & mercados in the area and one felt safe walking around at night.
Good price, good location but please leave coffee in the room.
Staff at the front desk were friendly and professional. We got a room in the 5 floor and we did not experience noise or such due to the renovation that was announced in the website. When we got to the room there was no coffee despite the sofisticate coffee machine in the room. We informed the front desk at 4:00 pm and it was promised that we will get some. We returned at 3:00 am front the night out and there was no coffee. Those little perks are the ones that invite the guests to return to your hotel. O must say that everything else was ok.
Not to impressed
While this hotel is acceptable, in my travelers opinion, there are many other choices in the price range of this property that are better. The elevator was not in use on one night of my stay, so we were stranded in the lobby for over 30 minutes. While someone finally came to the rescue, I asked myself why? The food in the sushi bar was very good, but the regular restaurant was closed in the evening. No one bothered to tell us until after we had sat there for 15 minutes waiting for service. There is no pool at this hotel. All in all, it was not that impressive and I will not be staying at this hotel again. To each his own as they say.
I wouldn't recommend it. There are much better places to stay. It looked nothing like the photos and definitely did not meet our expectations. For the money it is just about OK but I would spend a little bit more to get somewhere much nicer. It is meant to be part of the Barcelo hotel group ( though all signage had been removed). It bore no resemblance to Barcelo hotels we have stayed at in the past. On the other hand the breakfast was OK and you can have eggs cooked to order (though this is not promoted) Here are some of the things that disappointed us: - At check in they were adamant we had not paid for breakfast. Only after persistence did it become transparent that they were looking at the wrong booking. No apology. - The property is all bit tired and chipped. - We asked about the breakfast times at reception but they gave us the wrong times - Staff surly - Shower blocked - No water from hot tap in sink - Two big holes in bath towel - Very very poor room sound insulation - Have the windows ever been cleaned? - Room not cleaned by the time we returned at the end of the day. Have I said enough?
