About RIU Plaza Panama, Panama City

Sleek hotel with sushi bar in Panama City’s financial hub

10 minutes from forests

Despite its location in Panama City's financial quarter, it's only a 10-minute drive to tropical forests with walking trails at the Metropolitan Natural Park. High-end and budget shopping can also be found 10 minutes away, along the main commercial street Vía España.

Malls and money museum

For some offbeat history, a 5-minute drive takes you to see coins from the 1500s at the National Bank House Museum. There are 2 shopping malls nearby - Multicentro Panama is a 15-minute walk, and it's a 5-minute drive to the massive Multiplaza Pacific.

Sushi bar

You can work out at the fitness center, to allow for later indulgence with sushi and cocktails at the lobby lounge, Studio 50, or dining at the 3 restaurants and snack bar. You can relax with a treatment at the spa or at the outdoor pool.

WiFi and stylish design

Hotel Riu Plaza Panama's 644 guestrooms offer sleek designs and panoramic city views, and separate living spaces with sofas and desks. Free WiFi keeps you connected, a mini-bar, and you can watch the flat-screen TV with a drink from the coffeemaker.

Great location
Good hotel, very clean, nice pool area, pleasant staff in a central location for business, shopping, dining and lounging. Central air was very "cool" - I actually turned mine off as it was too cold despite the setting. Wifi worked well and walking distance to many local dining options.
