    Lonely Planet review

    David’s largest hotel offers 119 modern yet fairly sterile rooms that are more suited to domestic businesspeople than travelers. But the hotel isn’t short on amenities, and the onsite bar-restaurant, pizzeria, casino and a six-screen cinema sweeten the deal. Some rooms, such as deluxe double room 140, look onto a leafy courtyard and large swimming pool – a plus in Panama's hottest city.

    Our independent authors have visited Gran Hotel Nacional and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in David.
