I would really recommend La Estancia to anyone looking to stay in Panama city but away from the grime and hustle of the city centre. As a solo female traveller, I felt completely safe in the neighbourhood and the hotel itself. The staff were super friendly and helpful, even before I had booked my stay, they were extremely helpful over email when I was asking a lot of questions. I was planning a trip to San Blas which I booked through La Estancia and I would recommend doing this as it took all the hassle and worry out of the trip planning and the whole thing ran very smoothly.
The hotel itself is lovely - feels very homely and safe. The rooms were very bright and comfortable and the ones with the balconys and hammocks are worth requesting.
