I've not stayed in other hotels in Panama City so I can't fairly measure it against other standards. Check-in was slightly disappointing. May have just been a language barrier, but I arrived early from the airport and was told by the manger simply "your room isn't ready yet." No offer to wait in the garden, or of a place to change my clothes after my flight/transit, etc. No map so that I could find a restaurant. I left again and wandered around in my long pants in the heat until I found a restaurant where I could eat and cool off and wait. Good quiet location, quick walk to metro station. Sonia on the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Room was very large and comfortable (I was in room 9), if maybe showing some signs of wear and tear (bathroom sink was cracked). I like that the room had a mini fridge! A/C worked well. Room was clean, but bathroom could have used some extra attention to detail around the sink area. Toilet lid didn't stay up and toilet didn't flush very well (I reported it). Breakfast was decent and plentiful. Garden area is lovely. A solid choice!

We spent two nights at the Lodge and were very happy. Tony and Sonia were friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the location was quiet. The room was small but adequate and the bathroom had a great shower and there was a nice outside breakfast eating area. We were scheduled for only one night but our plans changed when our friends arrived a day late and we were perfectly happy to stay another night. It's easy to navigate the subway from here and if we were to return to the city, we'd stay again.

Originally I just wanted to stay in Baru Lodge for only one night, I already had a reservation in another hotel for later. But Baru Lodge turned out to be so excellent, that I cancelled the other reservation and stayed in Baru Lodge: Very nice and clean room, Air-conditioning and WiFi worked perfectly, the neighborhood is very safe even at night, the metro is in 10-15 minutes walking distance. And the best is the extremely friendly and helpful staff, Thanks a lot to Sonja and her colleague.

This is located further away from the main street (Avenade) which is a good and a bad for some. It is a residential area and you have to walk quite a bit to get to a restaurant (there is a little bakery at the corner for a quick meal but not much except high rise buildings). The rooms are nice, the AC works very well. However the breakfast was horrible. They had stuff thrown together and not worth it.

This small and lovely place is an excellent choice for Panama City. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, there is a beautiful garden to relax and the staff is very helpful! The location is a bit outside of the old town, but a subway station is very close, so that you can get to the centre in a few minutes! The neighbourhood feels very safe and has some nice restaurants and bars...
