Continental Hotel Panama, Panama City
My Great Stay at Contiental Hotel in Panama City
The Continental Hotel was an excellent choice for my visit. It was centrally located to the city near shopping opportunities and walking distance to everything I needed. The area was safe and the presence of police was high to keep down crime. I felt very comfortable and safe walking the streets during my stay. The hotel and staff members were helpful in providing anything I asked for. They were also very friendly. I enjoyed my stay very well. Bernie

In process of an upgrade
I've stayed at this hotel multiple times, so am a repeat customer. This time was a bit different. First I want to say that the staff were great and any issues commented upon below are more for the eyes of management. I was scheduled for 4 nights and when I got there I realized they were undergoing a large renovation of the lobby area. This affected things a bit. For example, while the restaurant was still operating there really wasn't a place to just go and sit down to have a glass of wine or kick back in the evening. The other thing I noticed was that the room amenities just aren't keeping up with other hotels in the same area. For example, there was no mini-fridge and no coffee maker in the room. I hadn't paid for breakfast because I usually don't eat it. In their defense I found out that coffee was complimentary in the restaurant in the morning without having to have breakfast. But I only found that out by going in and asking. I wasn't told this out front. And then my business concluded a day early so I was going to re-arrange my flight to return home a day early. But because I was within the 24-hour cancellation period they were going to charge me for the room anyway. It's not a big thing, but when you are a repeat customer, little things like that stick with you. I'm hoping that after their renovation they will look at all of their amenities and gear up a bit. Otherwise, they are going to lose business.
