The undeniable charm of Panama, Central Hotel was built nearly 150 years ago in the heart of the city, facing the beautiful Plaza de la Independencia in Casco Antiguo (Old Town) – a designated World Heritage Site. The hotel is one of many historic buildings recognized by UNESCO for its architectural significance, and it was the first hotel in the country at the time of its opening in 1874, quickly becoming a meeting place for intrepid travelers. Their clientele has included the French builders who constructed the Panama Canal, U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, and Count Ferdinand de Lesseps. By the turn of the century, the hotel was recognized as the finest in Panama, known for its unique French-influenced design and its reputation for high-style services.

The hotel underwent full renovations, including meticulous work to preserve the façade and original structure, and the finished property creates a sense of historic luxury that can only be experienced first-hand.
