    Fair accommodation in Panama City

    This Novotel hotel in Panama city offers fair accommodation in a good location in the city. Even though the hotel does not offer very good quality food options, there are a few restaurants around and easy access to tourist attractions. We had two rooms in the same category however one of them was a lot bigger and better.

    Great price and accommodations

    Great price, clean, lots of options for breakfast. It’s located close to the metro but can take Uber too. Lots of restaurants nearby. Safe area to walk. Room was clean and beds were confortable. For breakfast they have an omelette section and they can make pancakes too. Definitely would recommend this hotel.

    Comfortable rooms, beautiful city view

    It was a lovely experience at Novotel, being the first time in Panamá City. The room was always cleaned with fresh towels daily. The 9th floor gave us an amazing view. Breakfast buffet was delicious and filling. Lobby staff were excellent! Would definitely recommend and would return again in the future.

    Planet 21? - > plastic waste

    We stayed here for 5 nights to be able to acclimatise to the weather in Panama. We got a room with windows to the floor, which gives a nice touch for the view over the city. The room is ok, spacious, but worn out. Specially the bathroom is in need of a make-over. The beds were mixed, one had a good mattress the other a soft one with a dent in it. Wifi worked very well. Very friendly staff. My main reason for 3 starts is that this hotel advertises itself as adhering to Planet 21, (link to Accor Planet 21 site removed  ) meaning amongst others that they are reducing food waste. Well, have a look at the pictures here and you'll see that a small portion of jelly is in a plastic cup, the abricot jam is in plastic, the butter is in plastic, and the youghurt as well. The third picture shows you the waste after having had breakfast... I know I have a sweet tooth ;) So, not really planet 21...
