The Bristol Panama Is a Good Place to Stay

Very Good8.0
It was a very nice stay but be aware that the Bristol allows noisy parties with a loud music to be held in their 5th floor lounge. There is no escape from the noise. It went on until after 1 am.

Very Beautiful Hotel with great service
It was very good. There was an issue with noise on the first night so they changed my room and the 2nd night was much better. I think the walls are too thin! Also room service menu is not great. Need more selection. Service is excellent and hotel is beautiful.
