Bristol old world
Lovely, old world hotel in a very safe, beautiful and walkable area. The staff is very friendly and most speak English. Rooms however are dated, mattress hard and there were maintenance issues so I moved rooms. Norka provided excellent customer service, even remembered my name, thank you

The Spa Service is BAR NONE!
As a solo traveler I enjoyed my stay at the Bristol. The staff were kind. I had the executive room and let me start by saying it was huge! More than enough space. It felt good to be welcomed by friendly faces at the door each time I came and went. The breakfast was amazing. The only thing I griped a bit with was the seating for solo travelers. One day I went in and I was showed to the door to have a seat outside. It would have been ok but that day I had on a semi-formal dress and sitting outside wasn’t conducive. I would sweat and ruin my dress. I was shrugged off by the attendant that day. The manager came out and I politely asked if I could be seated inside. I truly only needed 20 minutes to eat. I was accommodated after waiting. I totally understood and waited. It may not be ideal, but to allow for seating with larger groups, perhaps a room service can be granted for solo individuals. I think this hiccup was only for that day however, I went the next day and had a place to sit. I was stared at by the same attendant the day before. The gentlemen were welcoming but that particular attendant did peer at me as an inconvenience. The same as the day before, almost like “you’re going to throw off our seating”. I didn't care for that exchange and I didn't let sway my overall review. The spa was amazing. I was serviced by Sonia. Sonia was amazing! The massage was a 10/10. I told her that this was one of the best massages I have had in my life, if not thee best!

6/10 Good

I'll start with what was good. The room was very spacious, including a large bathroom, which I like. Noise from the street outside was minimal due to soundproof windows. Staff members were courteous. But there were issues. My room was not ready when I arrived, but I can overlook that because I arrived about an hour before check-in. The rate I was charged was $80 per night more than what I was I agreed to through Expedia. The options were pay it or find another place to stay. There were stains on the drapes and a ball of hair on the bathroom floor when I arrived. The room was at 78 degrees even though the thermostat was set on 65. I had to make three separate request for someone to come back to the room and fix it. On the third call, I indicated that I would need a room change or accommodations at a different hotel if it wasn't fixed. It was finally fixed after this. I expected much more from this hotel, especially when you compare it to the Bristol in Vienna, Austria. If I return to Panama City, I'll find a different hotel.
