Gran Hotel Nacional

Hotel in David
Image by

David’s largest hotel offers 119 modern yet fairly sterile rooms better suited to domestic businesspeople than travelers. But the hotel isn’t short on amenities, and the on-site bar-restaurant, pizzeria, casino and 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.
