In a Nutshell
Inaugurated in 1874 as Panama’s first hotel, the Central has been an exceptional witness to the city’s crucial historical events and host to the great characters that participated in them, including U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and Count Ferdinand de Lesseps. Featuring a unique French-influenced design and recognized by UNESCO for its architectural significance, the hotel has recently undergone full renovations, including meticulous work to preserve the façade and original structure. Tastefully appointed rooms with Panamanian-style furnishings, offer the perfect blend of colonial-era charm and modern comfort. Some overlook the Plaza de la Independencia and cathedral; others the bustling streets of Old Town. Delicious international cuisine, historic elegance and impeccable service define the acclaimed 9 Reinas restaurant
