“Very quaint and cosy with a friendly staff.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

We had a long stopover in Panama before flying back to Europe and found this hotel via TripAdvisor. I actually wanted to give it a rating between 'Average' and 'Very Good' - which would be just 'Good'.
It's in a residential area and they are now putting up a bigger sign, which explains the paranoia of one of this hotel's reviewers who decided that 'it doesn't even exist'. (Our taxi driver got lost too, but we put him on the phone with the B&B receptionist who was very helpful .)
This is more like a Bed& Breakfast, but it's a lovely colorful, and cosy one. Mind you, we just needed it to have a place to nap and shower after traipsing around Panama City, but the time we spent there was pleasant, and we'll go back.
The best thing that the owner did for us was to find a taxi/guide who we were able to hire as by the hour for a great price. He was a wonderful person, very knowledgable about the city and very patient with our wanting to stop and photograph everything. We now call him, Luis, our 'new best friend'. Loved him!
If the problem, for future guests, is in finding the hotel, I suggest that the hotel gives some sort of landmark or main street that is nearby.
Anyway...thumbs up!

Hi,
Our group of 4 booked 2 rooms just for the 8 hours that we were going to be in town, as a stopover between flights. We needed a place to take a good nap and shower after a 'day in the city'.
The staff was very helpful. They got us a great taxi driver/guide - Luis - who was fun, informative and is our 'new best friend'. Did I mention that he charged very friendly prices?
The hotel is in a residential area, so perhaps the potential hotel guest can call the desk and ask for a familiar main street nearby, so that the taxi drivers can find it more easily (ours was driving aorund , but just a bit) and there's no possiblitly of another reviewer - who's taxi got lost, I think - claiming that the hotel doesn't exist.
That is a very unfair thing to say about decent honest people who are offering a good service in Panama!

The owner speaks English, and was very helpful in getting taxis for me-to/from the airport, plus around town. I don't like Panama City mostly due to the taxi drivers ripping off tourists. This B&B had a driver meet me at the airport with a sign, so all went as agreed. It is in a neighborhood area, so it is quieter. It has a nice patio for eating, and a yard area for kids to romp. The Watermelon room has its own fenced patio-great for families. The bed in my room-the apple room- was very comfortable due to the foam mattress. It has decent free wireless internet access. The breakfast was good. I bought dinner there one night, and it was delicious. Overall, this was much better all the way around than the several times I have stayed at a major hotel in Panama City.
