We loved the Tantalo! Our room was amazingly spacious and comfortable. The whole place is full of interesting art - each room has murals and interesting decor. The location is super convenient to everything in Casco Viejo and easy to go into new Panama as well, all on foot. But don’t worry if you don’t want to walk. There are taxis coming by the hotel every 30 seconds! The rooftop bar is fun and the breakfast downstairs is good. The room was clean and had everything we needed. My only complaint is the noise. The rooftop bar has loud music and happy loud people going until 2am on weeknights and 4am on weekends. The taxis honk their horns constantly. It was hard to sleep. Earplugs don’t help. So if you are a partier or a heavy sleeper, this is your place!!! Everyone is really nice.

The hotel is very nice. Large and clean rooms and very good food at both the restaurant as well as the roof top bar. The location is awesome! You are in the middle of Casco Viejo and within minutes of walking distance you can get to all highlights!

A wonderful experience! From check where they quickly and gladly helped us with a parking issue, to a delicious dinner and breakfast, and a fun experience at the pretty roof bar, this place was great. Very economical too. The room was nice and spacious as well and the staff sooo friendly! Great management and wait staff too. Can’t recommended this place enough!

We really enjoyed our stay at Tantalo. I was apprehensive given all the comments about noise but it was no issue, at least not for us. The room is spacious, bed is very comfy, shower pressure is great- we will definitely be back!

Beware of the drum beats!
The property itself was very nice as was the location, the restaurant and the service. But if you want to get a good nights sleep don’t even think about it. The nighttime extremely load music until 4AM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and 2 AM on other nights was unbearable.
