Continental Hotel Panama, Panama City
Amazing hotel, except the bar. Very unfriendly staff
A Traveler, us5 night trip
Continental Hotel Panama, Panama City
Maintenance lacking, otherwise room was nice
The key card would not open the door because the door reader was broken. I understand things happen and I wasn't upset by this, But the problem is they kept saying they would repair the door and never did. So every time I returned to my room my key would not work and I had to go back down the elevator 9 floors and tell them. Then they would come key the door open and tell me again they would fix it. Repeat this every time I returned to the room . they never fixed the problem, just kept saying they would.

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
