“Great little B&B”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Enjoyed our stay. The hotel is basic, but very clean. The beds are comfortable (lots of pillows), shower is great, breakfast is generous and served on the patio overlooking the garden. The location is in an upscale residential neighborhood, safe and near major streets so it's easy to get a taxi, but without a lot of street noise. It is walking distance to the convention center.

Sonia the manager is wonderful. She was always smiling and very helpful with getting taxis and handling phone calls in Spanish.

Would definitely stay there again.

The staff was very friendly and rooms were basic but clean. However, it was quite expensive for such basic accomodations. There was no view out the window and windows were encased with metal bars. No good selection of restaurants closeby. Despite breakfast being included in the price of the room it was not desirable...a lot of fried food and not sure what it was. At least there was fresh fruit to eat and juice and coffee.

Room Tip: Too much in a residential area and not convenient to restaurants. Right nextdoor to a school which...

We are sorry that your experience with us was not as good as you expected it to be.
We are a small B&B family owned and managed and by no means, nothing fancy. We pride ourselves in providing clean rooms, and good customer service. We are not located by the ocean or a park, we are in centric area so of course there is no “view”. However you can see our photos and also others guest photos and get an idea, prior to make a reservation. We don't advertise to be somthing we are not.
We are a Latin family and must of the time we offer Venezuelan breakfast (arepas, scramble eggs, etc.) I am glad that at least you liked the fruit, juice and coffee.
Thank you again for your business!

I read about this wonderful place in Lonely Planet. It was absolutely delightful. The staff helped me arrange tours and even advised me on the appropriate fares for taxis.The breakfasts were tasty, varied and plentiful. The location near the beautiful Parque Omar was great for recreation.

Read about B&B Casa Margarita in Lonely Planet Panama. Great place to stay. The staff are friendly and it is so great to return to the house and have someone greet you by name. I was in Room 1, front of the house. The room has two outside windows. Able to adjust the A/C to my liking and lots of channel options on the TV. There is even hot water. The bed was comfortable and bathroom large.

The house is located in a residential area. Very typical for Panama City. A mix of houses, high rises, and stores. Very close to Omar Park which is a great place to walk/jog, and exercise. The lodgings are simple but very comfortable. My single room for $77.00 was a great investment.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outside window.

I went to Panama, for a couple hours for business.....Casa Margarita made it soooo easy and confortable for me :) I arrived like 3am in the morning and they openned their doors for me. I had a delicious breakfast, the room was beautiful and clean, with air condition and internet access. They booked a taxi for me to go to my appointment on time.
Doña Margarita and everybody there were so friendly and helpful.

Can not wait to come back there for more days.

Everyone at Casa Margarita is wonderful. From timely airport pick-ups to a smooth check-in to a yummy breakfast - the staff will treat you well. The rooms are quite basic but are extremely clean and have air conditioning. The location is good as it is kind of between the airport and all of the "toursity" spots. The neighbourhood is quite safe so you can still walk around in the evening. We stayed here for 2 nights when we arrived in Panama City and then chose to stay again the night before we flew out. I would highly recommend this place as they will treat well.

We stayed at Casa Margarita in january 2012. We had an amazing time there, the family from Venezuela that is in charge was really nice, they are generous, kind, funny, ... buena gente!! The breakfast was very good too, a lots of food, fresh fruits, eggs, coffee ...everything went perfect for us! And the arepa was excellent!!! It's closed to a lot of things, and from a beautiful park. We highly recommend it! Have fun!!
