Security Box, did not work, Was necessary change from room 2016 to 2002. Overall ok, customer services must improve. I´m a panamanian citizen but living for several years in USA, working in a 5 stars Hotel, for that reason I must énfasis en that aspect. Customer Service is the front desk of the enterprises.

The breakfast is terrible, no milk, no fruits; just juice, eggs, and bread. The web page said that they had freezer and coffee-tea maker in the room, but it is not true, I requested one, and I never received it. I talked with the manager, and he said "sorry we do not have it". The toilet paper is of poor quality. There is not iron in the room.

Loved this hotel
Only stayed one night. Early morning flight kept me from going out but my room was very nice. King bed was very comfortable. Lots of space with a work area and good wifi. Clean and soft towels with the hot shower. My 3am desk clerk spoke very good English and helped get an Uber driver for the airport ride. Very pleased with this hotel and the great price.

Charlotte, us1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Here are the positivities and negatives: - when I arrived, they didn’t have the room I paid for 3 weeks prior. Gave me a different room with no compensation for the fact that I paid for a better room - WiFi doesn’t work unless in lobby - “breakfast” has no menu. Waiters don’t speak English so I was unable to have anything. States it starts at 7, but had no coffee or water when I arrived at 745 - soda machine broken and water jug always empty, so I was drinking tap water the entire stay - sketchy area to be walking around in, especially by yourself - not walkable to downtown Panama City because of construction, so location not optimal - pool is shaded by the building from sun - no hand towels in the bathrooms. Asked but still never received. - photos make the place look incredible. It’s not. - most hallway lights were sensored and didn’t work so taking the stairs at night is barely an option + MOST staff members were very nice and tried to help. However most didn’t speak English (which I found strange at an international hotel) so struggled to understand my broken Spanish + rooms were cleaned and upkept daily Overall, you can get a much nicer hotel in a much nicer area for around the same price. Should have looked around more before booking. Would not stay here again.

Good 6.0
Average (definitely neither "Grand" nor Int'l)
Average hotel (don't let the Grand International name deceive you!). The room I got was in the first floor. It was spacious and had a desk. But the view was blocked by other buildings and felt like being in a basement. The staff did not speak English. I sent email twice requesting airport shuttle, but got no response. Eventually when I sent message in Spanish (thanks to Google Translate), I got response that airport shuttle costs 35$ (it is a fair price for airport taxi, but this info could have been provided in the website).

Poor 2.0
No hotel access, streets and sidewalk's are under
No access to hotel, do not go, can't get to hotel as the streets are all under constructions.

Good location.
The hotel was good for the price, the street had a lot of construction going on, but we liked the area, lots of restaurants & it's close to the subway.
