There is a lot of construction/renovation going on in Casco Viejo, many new hotels and restaurants being built. Good location, but on a busy intersection - so there is some street noise. Steep staircase up to the lobby - so may be difficult for seniors or disabled persons to manage the stairs.
Stayed in the Panama room. Quaint. Two french doors opening onto balcony. There is a wrap around balcony overlooking the street. There were only two chairs, so we claimed them. I suggested to the owner that he purchase some additional chairs for the balcony.
Renovated building. Someone didn't do much space planning - our bathroom door wouldn't open fully as it hit the bathroom sink. So, you had to open the door to where it hit the sink, then slide in and close the door in order to use the mirror or sink.
We ended up moving furniture around so we didn't have to keep stepping over our suitcases. I suggested to the owner that he purchase some luggage racks.
Thomas the Manager graciously assisted us with our luggage and allowed us to check-in early and the Asst Mgr was up at 4 am to get our taxi to the airport.
Not a B&B - no breakfast. No coffee makers in room and coffee pot in lobby never had coffee. The manager said he was out of coffee. To bad Panama doesn't grow coffee....
When in Casco, be sure to visit Manolo Caracolo. We had an 11 course meal (tapas size) that was amazing.
