We spent a week in downtown Panama City at Metro Hotel. It was very good except no taxi could find it. Not on the GPS system and the address given is the legal address not the local address. After two hours of driving around and asking we finally found it. I we didn't speak Spanish we might not have. It is actually very easy if they would just put on the website: 50 meters south of Veneto casino-half way down the block from Manolos. They actually don't have a street number assigned and all directions in the city are based on landmarks.
Aside from not finding it, the only issue we had is the water is not hot. When we asked we were assured they have hot water but it was never hot in our room. We complained but were told it is hot--I guess if swimming pool temp is hot then it was but the beach had warmer water than we did. They safe in the room didn't work either but the hotel is secure and we didn't feel the need to use it. They staff is friendly and polite. The breakfast is hot and has nice fruit. The same everyday with cheaper quality cheese and bologna but had eggs, toast, oatmeal and fruit with good coffee. Overall a very enjoyable stay.
