I stayed in the loft at Casco Viejo. The loft has been beautifully restored, and everything has been done to a high standard with excellent taste and top quality fittings. Patty and Rudy were very helpful. It is well placed for the old city, with sights, shops and restaurants in easy reach. as others have pointed out, it is on the edge of the 'good' area, so a little bit of common sense is needed as to direction.

The only real negative was a very noisy party on Saturday night in a nearby building, but that is something you might get in many places.

We stayed in Patty's loft in Casco Viejo (PH-La Merced) which was originally built in 1680 and restored in 2006. It has amazing original exposed brick walls and has been beautifully restored. It's a top-floor loft well positioned in Casco Viejo (you can walk everywhere). Just make sure you don't make a wrong turn and walk into El Chorrillo (very bad neighborhood just a couple blocks away - learn the layout on a map).

Patty welcomed us and is one of the nicest people I've met. She is extremely organized and has pretty much every question and amenity you could think of ready for you before you get there. The place looks brand new, is unbelievable clean, and is well equipped (kitchen, entertainment system, two bathrooms, etc.)

I'm not surprised to see Patty's other reviews...she really has her stuff together and the prices were super competitive.

Our recent trip to Panama was a “once in a lifetime” excursion, thanks to Patty’s Casitas and Rudy’s Tours . Patty and Rudy cover all the bases with their perfect choices of living accommodations and places to go and see. They were available to help with daily itinerary choices and any problems we had. The villa and condo were well placed geographically and allowed easy access to see lots of what Panama had to offer. The Amador condo had every appliance we could think of, and was within an easy walk of some very nice restaurants, and the Canal. A short cab ride took us to grocery stores, shopping, more restaurants and scenery. The phone they supplied us with added a sense of security and a connection to Patty and Rudy for help if needed. The Mountain Villa near Capira was spacious and well appointed, with an infinity pool and covered patio. Rudy’s tours took us in every direction, on the isthmus railroad to Colon , past Coronado to El Valle, on a dugout canoe ride to the Embera Village , thru Old ruins of the old City and Spanish Forts. What a grand and beautiful trip thru a thriving and industrious country. The people are all very friendly and we felt very safe anywhere we went at any time of day or night. We are recommending Patty’s Casitas and Rudy’s Tours for this Panama Adventure to all our friends and relatives. And we are already planning our next trip to Panama . Nancy and jack. . .

I had stayed in Panama City for a brief visit before, and will admit that I didn't think much of it. But I was delighted to find a whole different visiting experience when I returned to Panama City and stayed at one of Patty's Casitas' Casco Viejo lofts.

The loft itself was better than expected, but the real upside was the location and the helpful advice and assistance of Patty and Rudy. The loft came equipped with a binder of local information that I found incredibly helpful (follow the restaurant recommendations!!), and Rudy and Patty were incredibly helpful in assisting us throughout our trip.

I will definitely stay there again when I come back through Panama City.

Patty and Rudy are very accommodating and wonderful hosts. We thoroughly enjoy our visit to Panama and the lovely accommodations. We both felt like it was our home away from home, very comfortable, accommodating and centrally located. The highlight of our trip was the tours with Rudy, he was so informative, interesting, heartfelt and knowledgeable. We have learned so much about Panama from him with his detailed knowledge and passionate love of his country’s history, it will be a trip we will always remember and treasurer.

Thank you again for your hospitality.

First I need to tell you all that Patty is such a pleasant person. I travel solo (sometimes!) and Patty helped me since the first moment I contacted her. OMG I asked her so many questions I get a bit worry when travelling by myself but Patty was amazing. She arranged my trip to Panama Canal and I stayed in one of her very elegant apartments in Casco Viejo. I had the chance to meet Rudy too they are a very hard worker couple. I will highly recomment Patty Casitas for your next trip to Panama as well as www.RudysTours.com . Patty and Ruddy Warm Regards from Toronto Canada.

This was a fantastic and very estethic experience to live in this apartment for a few days. The property is beautifully decorated, and perfectly located for getting a first hand experience of the old city. For years, I have been dreaming about owning one of these renovated apartments, with a wall of original coral reef stones. Renting one, was the next best. - Everything in Casco Viejo is within walking distance. A big super market in case you want to cook yourself (which we did), and the kitchen is fully equipped. Several really good restaurants are also only a short walk away. The internet connection is fast, and Patty is only a mail or phone call away - quick to respond. - This is highly recommendable, total enjoyment!!
