Baru lodge is located in a quiet street close to Calle Argentina where there are lots of restaurants and night life. The lodge is very clean, welcoming and they arranged transfer from the airport for us. The room is fairly basic: comfy bed, tv, small fridge etc. The bathroom had a decent hot water shower, toilet and sink. Both were... More

The place was nice and intimate. Nice, simple breakfast included with the room: hard boiled eggs, juice, yogurt, toast and fruit. The room looked nice at first glance but the paint was peeling and the outlets were not covered, the safe either missing or broken and the air conditioning was not working well in either of the 2 times we...

The front desk helped us to make multiple reservations, airport pickups, and were a... More

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...

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.
