City hotel near Via Espana
The hotel is located in the immediate vicinity of Via Espana. It takes about 30 minutes by car from Tocumen International Airport (if the toll motorway is used, otherwise 60 to 90 minutes depending on the time of day). The domestic airport of Albrook can be reached within 10 minutes by car. The locks of Miraflores are about 15 minutes drive away. The hotel offers free underground parking for its guests.
The staff is friendly, courteous and consistently bilingual (English Spanish).
The room was in a good, renovated condition, minibar and modern entertainment electronics were available. The bathroom of Hotel Doubletree By Hilton Panama City was large and clean with a bath and separate shower.
Breakfast and an evening snack including soft drinks is included in the price which may contribute to the somewhat high hotel rates.
The mini bar is well stocked and low priced, but used content was not filled during the stay.
Very negative regarding the night's sleep is a construction site directly at the hotel, the day and night noise generated. Although the windows offer a relatively good sound isolation, still the noise is omnipresent and sleeping with open windows is impossible.
Due to the noise I'd rate this hotel only a ""satisfactory"", otherwise there would have been a ""good"".
Somewhat strange is the cooperation with taxi company (s), which perform overpriced transports. With a good and reasonable hotel price, the guest should not feel duped even if the service ""external"" is handled, so it has connection to the hotel. My solution either rental car for a longer stay or take a taxi outside the hotel.
