Good 6.0
Needs a little work!
The Good: Excellent service, they allowed us to check in very early, 10:30 am, due to an early flight arrival. And they let us check out late, 2:30pm. They also allowed us to store two suitcases for 10 days while we traveled elsewhere. The staff was very professional! The room we had was very spacious with a mini-bar fridge stocked with somewhat costly drinks and snacks. The Bad: It was very annoying to only have one packet of coffee per day for the coffee maker, given that there were two coffee cups and two people staying in the room! I would have happily used my own coffee, but the coffee maker only uses small packets not available in stores. Therefore I was forced to ask for additional packets, which were provided. But, should you really have to ask each day? The room we stayed in, 907, had a disgusting "stain" on the wall next to the bed for which there is no excuse to not have cleaned it! Otherwise the room was somewhat outdated with dark wall paper and dim lighting. The shower hot water was only warm. The bed mattress was old, although adequately comfortable. I think in general the hotel rooms need some maintenance and renovation! With all of the hotel competition in Panama City, they could be much better.

Short but solid stay. Left early next morning, breakfast was fresh and good. Staff was helpful and friendly.

Very Good 8.0
The Best Western Zen is located in a safe neighborhood which is a big plus. The rooftop view is amazing. Definitely make time for a swim or drink to view the Panama City skyline. The room was clean and attractively furnished. The hot water isn't quite hot enough which is my only big negative. After a long day hiking, a hot shower would have been really really nice.

Superior Service & Comfort
Great place to stay when in Panama City. Clean, spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Delicious breakfast in the lobby. The only drawback was that a few desserts weren’t available through room service. Quality gym equipment is always a plus!
