After months of travelling around Central America, Panama City was my last stay. What a way to end such a wonderful trip. Huge comfy beds with amazing linen, air con to escape the hot Summer heat and nestled in the picturesque old town of Casco Viejo. I stayed in the Private Room 2B, with my own ensuite across the hall.... More

The property is simply stunning, very clean and really well restored in its old charm. We stayed in Room 2C which had two comfortable queen beds, large private bath a/c and TV. The mini fridge was a nice extra. No breakfast included but they have a fully stocked kitchen that you can use plus there are plenty of breakfast places... More

I was at the Magnolia only for 1 night, but I still really liked it. The hotel is located in the middle of the old town (Casco Viejo), which is a really nice place to walk and visit. The staff was really great, pointing out where everything I wanted was (cheap place to do laundry, pharmacy, restaurants, etc.). The room... More

The owners and staff were very helpful, and the location was great. Casco Viejo is a great part of Panma City...reminds me a bit of Cartagena, in Colombia. The hotel is vey reasonably priced, and provide a great combinaion of qualtiy accomodations, prime location, and a feeling of security in a place far away from home. Great value.

Despite the shock of learning ONLY UPON ARRIVAL that we'd have to carry our luggage up to the "pent house" and the pedestrian quarters, the place is actually weirdly charming. The staff --including it's hands-on owner-was friendly and very helpful. The vibe is young. The location is excellent for walking. Drive at your peril! .

Staying at the Magnolia Inn was fantastic. They have private rooms and a shared hostel rooms. We stayed in a private room with a private bath down the hall. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff at the hotel were fantastic. They were so helpful with restaurant and touring suggestions and helped with our plans in other areas in... More

The staff here was EXCEPTIONALLY helpful, and it is in a great location. I felt that most of the people I encountered on my trip in Panama were friendly and helpful, but even more so at Magnolia Inn. We had a recently-renovated room on the ground floor on the corner of the building. It was a good-sized room, with a... More

Enjoyed our quick stay. Thought the prices were very reasonable and found the staff very helpful when needing advice about cabs and places to eat. I was traveling with another woman and we felt very safe and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

Nice place, but private rooms are way over priced. Great location though. The only real problem I had was that they somehow forgot to wake me up as requested. I had an early morning flight. Luckily I woke up on my own but had to pay a taxi driver an extra $10 to take a faster toll road to the... More
