Bottom Line

Las Clementinas is an upper-middle-range boutique in Casco Viejo, a lively neighborhood rich with the culture and history of Panama City, and home to an active nightlife. There are three gorgeous, contemporary rooms with minibars, flat-screen TVs, and free toiletries, plus six spacious apartments well-equipped with kitchens and living areas. On-site features are limited, but the lovely rooftop terrace provides bay views, and a renovated restaurant opened in summer of 2017. The warm, helpful staff offer a host of service options for purchase to provide a more personalized experience. This makes a comfortable and convenient base for exploring, but for more in the way of on-site amenities, check out American Trade Hotel, with a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, and pool, all alongside stylish and modern interiors.

Scene

Stylish boutique with excellent service, set in a lively neighborhood

This wedge-shaped, three-story building stands out from its neighbors with a fresh, white exterior, balustrades lining each floor, and greenery dripping off the roof. The tiny lobby offers little comfort and there are no elevators, but the highlight of the hotel is the spacious, modern rooms. Guests rave about Las Clementinas for the excellent, personalized service and intimate atmosphere. The neighborhood has a party vibe -- especially at night -- making sleep difficult for some, even with the earplugs provided. The lack of on-site entertainment and dining lures primarily couples, though some families come as well. 

Location

In the Casco Viejo neighborhood of Panama City, a lively area with plenty to do

Map of Las Clementinas

Las Clementinas is in the vibrant Casco Viejo, in a UNESCO World Heritage site. The neighborhood is in southern Panama City, on a tiny peninsula jutting into Panama Bay. It is an area with a rich cultural and historic vibe, and guest can easily find restaurants, shops, and sites within steps of the hotel. The hotel is a two-minute walk from Iglesia La Merced, a beautiful church and one of the oldest in the city. It is also a two-minute walk to a supermarket, a casino, and several nightclubs. The hotel is a five-minute walk from the National Theater of Panama, six minutes from the Panama Canal Museum, and a 10-minute walk from the National Culture Institute. 

It is a 12-minute walk to the nearest bus stop from the hotel. Those with a car can use valet parking at the hotel, and take the 17-minute drive to the Miraflores Locks, where they can see ships traversing the canal locks and visit a small museum on the history of the canal. Albrook International Airport is a seven-minute drive from the hotel, and Tocumen International Airport is a 30-minute drive away. 

Rooms

Standard Rooms, plus spacious apartments with kitchens and living areas

There are three typical hotel rooms, plus six spacious apartment-style units called Chambers with kitchens, dining and living areas, and separate bedrooms. Hardwood floors, brick wall accents, and neutral tones create a warm and relaxing backdrop, while pops of colorful design in artwork and a few pieces of furniture make for a lovely, contemporary look. Every unit except for the Standard Room has a furnished balcony. On the downside, several past guests have complained of late-night outside noise reaching the rooms and being an issue. All rooms offer modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, air-conditioning, coffeemakers, and minibars, while Chambers add kitchens with full-size refrigerators, stovetops, and microwaves. Bathrooms have stunning colorfully tiled shower stalls and a bidet showerhead next to the toilet. Robes, slippers, and hairdryers are provided, as are free soaps, shampoo, and lotion.

Features

Rooftop garden, free Wi-Fi, and specialized services for a fee

The central location of this hotel makes it convenient to restaurants and sites, but on-site features are limited. A lovely rooftop terrace with patio tables and chairs makes for a relaxing spot. There’s also an interior courtyard with seating for small gatherings. A newly renovated restaurant, Casa Bruja, opened in summer of 2017. Wi-Fi is free everywhere in the building. 

There are a variety of services that guests may purchase to suit individual needs. Wine baskets, entertainment or babysitting for kids, extra towels, and in-room massages are a few of the options that can be arranged. Pets are also welcome with a deposit.
