“Colonial Lifestyle in the heart of Panama City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2010

One of the few colonial houses left in Bella Vista (most have been torn down or turned into restaurants). Huge suite - living room area with tv and computer, separate bedroom with another tv, and outside patio area. Only the one suite, so no other guests. We selected the time we wanted breakfast each morning. Guests dine in a beautiful large dining room.

Patty and Rudy the owners are fantastic. Provided excellent advice on sightseeing, restaurants, history of the area. Rudy was born in this house and we could tell he and Patty both take great pride in maintaining the property.

Great location for walking to restaurants, bars. Very safe neighborhood.

We stayed at Patty's Casita after a long flight from England (via Amsterdam, so 17 hours in total) before our epic journey through Panama and Costa Rica, and very glad of it we were too! The flat, and Patty herself, gave us all the peace and quiet, and home comforts, we needed to charge our batteries for what lay ahead. The Casita is quiet, spacious, very comfortable and very, very safe, and Patty's breakfasts really set us up well each day. It really was a pleasure to stay there, and we'd definitely recommend it for either a short-term or long-term stay in Panama City.

What a great find. We were looking for a very nice, good value hotel in Panama for a week-long vacation with our 2 teenage sons. We felt so lucky to find Patty's Casitas. It exceeded all of our expectations. We stayed in the Bella Vista property and not only were we thrilled, but our boys loved it. We had a 2-room suite with a shared bathroom in the middle with 2 sinks. The boys had their own room with TV, unlimited internet, a patio with Hammock and the biggest breakfasts they had ever seen - Delicious. Patty could not have been a more gracious host. We felt right at home, didn't want to leave! We also spent several days touring with OPAtty's husband Rudy and he was excellent, knowledgeable, flexible to tailor the tours to exactly our needs and our whims and Patty even packed a breakfast-to-go one day when we had an exceptionally early start time.

In summary, we could not have picked a better hotel/B&B at any price. We really got to see the hospitality of Panama and we reccommend Patty and Rudy completely!

We stayed two nights in early June. Rudy and Patty gave us many good recommendations on things to do and places to see in the city. The breakfast provided was hearty and delicious. They were available to answer questions and were very helpful in arranging transportation. The room was clean and quiet.

This was our first experience in staying at a B&B, but it was a great one. We were picked up by Patty and Rudy from the airport, who drove us to their beautiful home in Bella Vista and gave us a lot of tips for sightseeing, restaurants etc. Their house is located in a very nice and safe neighbourhood with a lot of restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast in their house is awesome, with every morning something different and special.

We also did a tour with Rudy to see Panama City and the canal, which was very well organised and Rudy knows a lot about the places we visited.

The room(s) and service were great, as well as the private patio. Although we were only staying there with the two of us, you could easily stay there with two kids.

We understand they do not have so many European guests. We can, however, highly recommend this B&B to all, as the service, friendliness and knowledge of Patty and Rudy are super.

We hope to visit them soon when we will be back in Panama again. Panama is a nice city, we spent three days there as a stopover to Costa Rica, which was a nice opportunity to visit the city and the canal.

We were very happy with our stay at Patty's Casitas. It was clean, cool, and spacious, with several nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Patty and her helper prepared interesting and filling breakfasts, and Patty conversed easily with us on a variety of topics. Rudy was an absolutely stellar tour guide. He specializes in small group sizes. We very much enjoyed our visit to the Embera Indians (only four of us visited the village that day) and our boat ride on Gatun Lake (just Rudy, the two of us, and our boat pilot). With Rudy spotting, we saw much more wildlife than we would have seen on our own, and we learned a lot!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Patty and Rudy's place in Bella Vista. It was centrally located in a picturesque neighborhood and within walking distance to a number of great restaurants. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. I recommend utilizing Rudy's guide services if you are going to Panama City for the first time.
