Hotel California

Vía España and Calle 43 E, , Panama

This place on the Vía España has long been popular with budget travelers, thanks to its decent location, bright rooms, and low rates. It lies on a busy street, which means its quite noisy by day. Its also near the bad side of town. Rooms in back are quieter—ask for a room with a number ending in 1, 2, 3, or 4—but there's no complete escape from the honking. As the night wears on, things get quieter. The hotel has a small restaurant that serves acceptable lunch specials. It's a short taxi trip from the ample restaurant and nightlife selections of El Cangrejo and the Area Bancária. It's often full, so reserve ahead.
