The hotel is amazingly well located, walking distance of everything you may need, from restaurants to farmacies, shopping malls, plazas, the linear park by the oceanside avenue and much more. All the staff is amizingly warm and welcoming, in two days you'll be knowing them by name. The breakfast is awesome and the chef, Javi, is a whole new chapter, well renowned in the country and specially on the fish market that is 5 minutes from the hotel, he and his team prepares the most colorful, tasteful and comforting food. Another great tip is the coffe/bar on the main lobby, with its panamaniam hats on the ceiling. Great for a mint tea or the famous panamaniam coffee.

We just hosted a breakfast with stay for 20 of our most important clients and knowing Bristol I knew it was going to be the right venue to choose. I am submitting this post because Bristol went above and beyond our expectations in terms of F&B quality and level of service! This was a very important meeting for us and therefore I am especially thankful for the attention to detail. What a level of luxury. Special thanks to Chef Javier Chávez and Michael Gatjens.

This hotel is classy and luxurious. Great rooms, staff, breakfast, location, everything. I usually like to list Pros/Cons, but I can't think of any Cons to list (maybe the insane rush hour traffic that paralyzes the road every weekday afternoon). We stayed for 3 nights.

Thank you thank you thank you! Me and my husband just left Bristol after a 3 days transit on our way from Costa Rica to NYC. What a good decision to do this stop over! Little did we know Panama has so much to offer in terms of nature and sites to see, and in specific BRISTOL – a jewel of the city! We have enjoyed great food and were assigned a beautiful room overlooking the city and we even had views of the ocean. The service was just above and beyond from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. We are already planning to come back in 7 months when we will do our next travel to South America. We loved the hotel restaurant Sal Si Puedes, which offers a large variety of delicious foods with influences from Peru and of course Panama. The staff is very warm hearted, always looking for ways to make our stay better and understand our needs. My husband had a headache one day when we came back from an excursion and the staff came up with an extra amenity for him wishing for him to get better soon. Adorable. I would recommend BRISTOL to anyone who is thinking of travelling to Panama!

Hotel Bristol in Panama City just felt like home during our last stay. Located in the heart of the city and pretty easy to reach any other touristic part of it like the old city just 5 min by car, it is the perfect choice for your trip. The service through the whole hotel was on point I must say and we were also impressed by the food offer at the hotel. Rooms are clean, spacious and money worthy. In resume I recommend it to anyone going to Panama City by the facility of making u feel at home. Well done Bristol.
