Depends on what your looking for. The building is modeled like something from the 40's. No bathroom attached to the room, only a shared bathroom across and down the hall. Exposed wiring, creaky wooden floors, and dim lighting.There is a sink in the room, so it's got that going for it. The staff were interesting, they would question you everytime you entered the building as to who you were. I wouldn't stay here again especially considering the price. I think much better values are to be had. Oh and wifi did not work.

Comfortable, clean, affordable, and interesting. Stayed one night for our honeymoon at the end of a long trip up the coast. I slept better that night in Panama than the rest of the trip. We had muffins and tea in the morning. Met the owner and learned all about the fascinating history.

This place is a joke! Receptionist guy was drunk, could smell it, arguing with other receptionist, couldn't find the right room, the whole place smelled muggy and old. Should be a sight seeing attraction, never stay a night!

Nothing is upkept, the facilities are disgusting, and most everything is damaged. There are better places to stay at for less money, and I highly advise that you seek them out. They have "security" at night which is just trying to hustle you for cash in order to expedite "checking the registry"

If you want to read a great fiction book with the Panama Hotel playing a starring role, check out "hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" by Jamie Ford!

The coffee house is good: great ambiance and location, tasty pastries. The hotel owner offers tours where she talks about the history of the Panama Hotel, a very moving account of the effects of the Japanese internment here in Seattle. While she talks at great length (she's very excited about her story and about explaining the historic pictures in the cafe), the real highlight is going down into the old public bath in the basement. Fascinating! You can make reservations for the tour, which is offered a few times a week, by getting in touch with the cafe.
