Stayed here recently and for the price, it is a really great deal. The tv did not have good reception though and I could not work out why the airconditioning did not work the second night. The main switch is by reception and you have to make sure it is ON.

Hotel Discovery is located in a central location in Panama City close to Shopping Malls and the Financial Hub.Taxis to almost everywhere is easily accessible and cost between 2-3...
