This Bead & Breakfast lodge was recommended to me by a good friend that happens to be a landscape architect. She told me that the breakfast was nice but simple, which it is, but the area where it is held is in a beautiful peaceful garden. She was right. I went to Panama on a business trip, so I was...

Erwin does a good job in keeping nice big rooms that are comfortable, and gives fast free wifi and a decent breakfast included. I enjoyed my interactions with him and you can see that he improving the situation with some of his staff. Keep up the good work Erwin.

My wife and I stay here our first two days in Panama City. The location is safe and close to the new Metro system although there isn't a lot to do near the hotel. The staff were friendly and spoke English, and they worked with a very profession taxi service for our transport to and from the airport. Overall it's... More

Baru Lodge was a great place: it is a good, quiet location; the room is really nice; breakfast was good; the backyard is a pleasant place to sit and read. I thought this was excellent value for the cost. When you’re not familiar with Panama City, it may seem as if it’s located out-of-the-way, but it is not. A metro... More

I only stayed one night here, but the price was extremely reasonable given how nice the accommodations were and how good the breakfast was. It's a beautiful place. I got in rather late and the woman at the front desk ordered me a pizza when I asked about finding some dinner.

My favorite part of the hotel is the garden courtyard area with relaxing seating and plenty of birds to watch there. The breakfast is a pretty standard continental breakfast (fruit, yogurt, bread, eggs, coffee/tea/juice. The room we were in was on the small side, but met all of our needs, with AC, tv, comfortable bed, nice shower, etc. The rooms... More

PROS: Nice lodge. Clean. Seems secure. Decent area. CONS: Biggest had to do with management decisions. First, my brother specifically reserved a 3 bed room. This was a hard thing to find, and was one of the main reasons we came to Baru. On arrival, we realized the room had a pair of queen beds. Lady at desk apologized, and... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Room had two queen beds, clean, airco, good shower, quiet. Breakfast ok. You can walk to a street with restaurants and staff can give you advice. For other locations you need a taxi (or public transport, but we did'nt try that). Staff is helpful. But don't ask for a taxi, because then you risk waiting... More

We had a great time at Baru Lodge, Erwin was very helpful & accommodating. The room was simple but clean, smart & very quiet. We really enjoyed eating breakfast in the courtyard each morning & loved the location, only a stones throw away from the metro so it was easy to explore the city. Our only feedback is that the...
