Run down property

Pros: The location in relation to the subway, aside from this nothing else is worth mentioning. I am truly surprise you do not mentioned the remodeling.
Cons: Clean all windows, make the bar look appealing, the lobby is to sad looking.
Location: Right in the center of town, half a block from the subway station
As we step out of the taxi that took us from the airport to the Hotel you can tell right away it looked run down. At the entrance and before reaching the main lobby there was a sign mentioning the above. The lobby look dark and with no life at all. The Hotel has over 300 rooms and only one elevator was working during our 3 night stay. All the windows from the panorama elevator as well as the room ones, were terribly dirty!!

this hotel was home away from home

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
All the bad reviews I read bout this hotel made me a bit hesitant about staying there, but when I got there service was excellent from begining to the end, the staff, the service, the ambience, the quality of the room, the restuarant and their staff made our meals enjoyable with their courteous service and radiant smile,I don't think I want to try any other hotel in Panama, I know what I am getting at the continental and I am quite happy with it, I have already started recommending it to my friends,,,,,,,,,,,, ALL ROUND EXCELLENCE

Nice hotel but expensive for what you get

Not a bad hotel overall. Nice pool/bar/restaurant and lobby but the buck stops there. The rooms are dated and many overlook some horrible construction sites. Spend the extra to stay at one of the neighboring hotels

Excellent location for the price

Pros: Free breakfast, cheap room service
Cons: No free Internet, Noisy
We enjoyed the hotel thoroughly. The staff was extremely supportive and helpful from our arrival to departure. Jose at the front desk was patient and kind at our problem w/ communication. Our flight was scheduled to leave early, and we called 30 minutes ahead for room service which arrived promptly. The room service was a wonderful price and was delicous for our departure. We were able to get a shuttle bus to the airport w/o previous arrangements right outside the hotel. We didn't like the casino as much as the Veneto down the street. We didn't feel comfortable in it. Veneto was more welcoming for tourists, and seemed more capable at communicating w/ foreigners. Veneto was more expensive to stay there, and also, didn't include breakfast. We will def. plan to return to this hotel. One bad thing about our last night stay, was the neighboring room had a very loud woman that woke us up and kept us up most of the night, which was not good due to the fact we had to get up at 4:30 a.m.

With the exception of the vallets, the staff was helpful and friendly

Cons: no breakfast
The area surrounding the hotel is less than desirable. The streets are dirty and the traffic noise is heavy. The hotel was very difficult to find even with our GPS since the name of the place was not on the main street, but rather, on the side street. We needed a taxi to Casco Viejo and were quoted a fare that was twice the going rate.Getting a taxi outside the hotel was 50% less as we found out on our next trip!

Not what expected

Pros: Close restaurants
This hotel doesn't worth for what they charge. It looks like it was a good hotel several years ago, but not anymore. The only thing good is its location, very centraly and near one of the best sectors of the city.

Lack of Customer Service

I stayed for 3 nights, standard rooms, noisy looby, ugly bar and small restaurant for bkfs time. At the time a check out in the lobby I realized that my agenda and my pen where left at the room, so I asked to returd to my room to pick up my left things. The maid was already there but not my stuff. Returned to the lobby and explained, they didn´t care and no explenations nor apologies......please never stay at Riande Continental!
