This hotel is a lovely building that was once a bakery. We had two nights here in room 1. It was a great bedroom plus a separate seating and cooking area if needed. This is the only hotel I have ever stayed in that has just rooms - no restaurant, bar etc, just a small reception area for checking in. Breakfast was either brought to your room or eaten in the cafe next door. There were a number of restaurants in the area.
We arrived arrived around midday to be told that our room would be ready at 3pm, which is not unusual. However, there was not really anywhere to wait in the hotel, but luckily our guide arrived early and we did a half day tour of the city.
Casa del Horno is in the Casco Viejo part of Panama City and is a World Heritage site in the process of being restored. This meant that several of the narrow streets were closed and there was a lot of construction work (and traffic). Once all the renovation has been completed, this should be a lovely safe area of Panama City, but as less than half the work seems to have been completed so far, this may be a while.
The hotel is over a restaurant and the area is quite lively in the evening and if you are a light sleeper, the noise might keep you awake. We had no problems sleeping even though our room was directly above the outside seating area for the restaurant.
