Review: Radisson Decapolis Hotel, Panama City

Trip To Panama Flying in Turkish Airlines Business Class

Last month, Mike and I traveled to Panama for the first time where we stayed four nights in the beautiful capital, Panama City. We flew with Turkish Airlines in business class although we had to originate from Budapest instead of Stockholm since the fare was much cheaper starting from the Hungarian capital. Between Stockholm and Budapest, we took the direct flight on Norwegian. Since I have Diamond status with Hilton, we stayed at the Hilton Panama and Waldorf Astoria Panama where we got upgraded to a Master Suite during our stay at the Hilton Panama. We also had a chance to stay at the Radisson Decapolis Hotel which was also a nice hotel, although not as nice as the two Hilton properties we stayed at. When in Panama, you should never miss doing the Panama Canal Tour as it was definitely the highlight of our trip. Take note that they don't have tours everyday so make sure you check the availability beforehand. Our trip to Panama was one of the best trips we've had and having flown in Turkish Airlines business class, it couldn't have been better!

CONCLUSION

This hotel is located close to the Shopping Mall which can be accessed by a connecting bridge which is a very good thing for those who love shopping. Carlos, the receptionist who helped us with the check in process was friendly and efficient. I thought the food during the breakfast buffet was very good including some tasty hot meals although it was interesting to note that they didn't serve any bacon. On the other hand, they had sparkling wine which is not very usual. Overall, our stay here was okay although for the price that we paid, the room could have been better as it needed some renovations. To all the staff of Radisson Decapolis Hotel, "Muchas Gracias!"
