“Generally pleasant experience !”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

March 17, Saturday, second day of the David Festival which runs for 10 days and attracts all from Panama and other neighbouring countries ( Costa-Rica, Colombia, etc).

That fair revolves around the Chiriqui province production of flowers, fruits and vegetables as well as bovine production.

Most hotels are booked ahead of time , so the vacant rooms left are either above normal prices or not particularly attractive ( shower floor in need of renovation).

So, I was lucky to find an ensuite room with a hot tub for two or three people and a regular separate shower.

A queen size bed with wooden frame, a hide-a-bed loveseat and an armchair , a round dining table with 4 padded chairs, a minifridge, a coffee maker with 2 cups,two glasses, two wine glasses, 2 night tables with lamps, a dresser with mirror and stool, a 2-3 foot-high flower jar with rich colors, all this adorns the room.

Four medium size towels with 2 foot towels are provided with 3 cinnamon scent candles.

Door opens with an electronic key card and an inside chain lock help provide security. A security doorman watches and front desk service is provided for 24 hours.

Wi-Fi free internet service ( good speed to watch a video ) as well as a flat panel TV cable with 50 stations in English and Spanish (CNN in English).

A glass door locked from the inside gives access to a balcony providing a view of the Central Park and the side streets.

I was on the top floor , one of two-floor hotel ; an elevator as well as a large flight of stairs with handrail give access to the floors. The lobby , more of a large alley, brings you to the front desk.

How much for one night in this Ensuite : 88 U.S. dollars.

What is missing ? Toilettries like shampoo, iron board, razors, shaving lather, etc though a douche is provided near the water closet.

Of course, air conditioning is provided and the room carries plenty of lighting.

Room Tip: Ask for an Ensuite away from street entrance side because of heavy car traffic and loud street conve...

We stayed at this hotel on our way to El Valle. We didn't have a reservation and were pleased with the price offered - $65. Bell man checked to ensure the room was ready, then took our luggage to the room. The room was a fair size and very clean, being bed bug and cockroach free.The bed was a double and fairly comfortable.Room service was fast and inexpensive for what we wanted. There was no problem getting free WiFi.
We decided to grab a bite at the restaurant located in the lobby. The food was good and service was friendly. Location of the hotel is close to a shopping district with other restaurants being very close by.
No coffee pot in the hotel room, kinda bare bones, but did the job. Did have a TV with English speaking channels.

We stayed for 3 days and the service was OK, but could use a little more professionalism at the front desk. The desk was ran by two girls who were more interested in talking to each other than helping us. The rooms were clean and the hotel is centrally located.

This is nice hotel, located in a very good location; near everything in David. The attention is not great but is passable; the rooms are comfortable enough with hot water. The restaurant is also ok. I sent a weekend with my wife and the first night we have a problem with the remote control of the AC; we complain and they tried to fix it, once they were unable to repair it, we were switch to a different room. Overall of the hotel is average, recommended for a night rest during a long trip or as a base to travel around chiriqui
