“Perfect for me”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Although this is my first visit to Panama, I travel the world more than most. This little jewel in beautiful Boquete has worked out perfectly for me. This relatively new B&B is conveniently located just a few short blocks from Parque Central and the "downtown" area of Boquete. Besides its great location you'll find a spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, well managed place to get a good nights rest. Rooms are not massive, but more than adequate to meet my needs. Did I mention spotless...definetly! The owners and workers take a lot of pride in taking care of this B&B and it will be obvious to you once you set foot in the door. Breakfast is included and meets my needs just fine. Great coffee, juice, fresh fruit PLUS omelette and toast. This morning I inquired at the desk about a zip line and rock climbing tour. Within a few minutes it was all arranged for me without any work on my part :) Fluent english with a beautiful smile is spoken at the main desk. If I am ever back in Boquete, rest assured this is where you'll find me.

In need of updating. Staff are awkward. Breakfast is a joke. If you are staying there get a bed on the quiet side as road side is very noisy. The rooms and hotel are clean and safe.
Boquette is a lovely place to spend time especially if you are looking for time away from the heat.

This hotel really used to be the house of the owners grandmother, hence the name. The rooms are small but clean. No elevator, just stairs to climb, but they are curved & not too hard if you are able. If you are not, request a room on the ground floor. There are no phones in the rooms so no wake up calls, but most cell phones have an alarm on them so no biggy. There is no air conditioning here, however they do have air circulators with remotes so you can control whether they swivel or not & how long they stay on so if you want to fall asleep with it on but not hear it all night you can. They have a semi buffet breakfast, fruit, juice, coffee, toast to help yourself & then they cook you eggs to order, or omelets or scrambled with something in it & it is different every day so that is nice for some variety. The help is shy but helpful. The desk folks all speak very good English & are so nice. The views from the back porch are incredible & the location is walking distance to the center of town. The only downside for me was that I had a room on the front & the road noise was loud at times & if I opened my window as most Panamanians do, the exhaust from traffic came right in so that didn't last long. They have TV's but they also have cable boxes so there are 2 remotes for the TV's. Some of the folks I was traveling with thought there was only one channel because they didn't see the second remote. All in all I would recommend this if you are in the Boquete area it is a beautiful area & a warm & welcoming place to stay....& it really is Grandma's House!

Room Tip: One on the back side rather than the street side.

Excellent hotel to stay at for the price, it is clean, bright and stall very helpful and courteous. View from the room and balcony is breath-taking. Will stay again if we visit Panama again which is a wonderful and beautiful country to explore. The locals are very friendly and honest and not out to con the travelers. On the whole a very good trip, highly recommended. We stayed for three nights.

This is a great place for a relaxing stay in the beautiful town of Boquete and includes a breakfast. The staff is very nice and accommodating (they dont speak English but that wasn't a problem ) The have this very nice patio area right behind the lobby where my room was located so I was able to step outside my room and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio with a lovely mountain view. Its walking distance to everything Boquete has to offer. The only negative is the busy street so if you can get a room in the back near this patio area or some of the upstairs rooms, you'll me much happier. If you are traveling, they have a laundry service. $10 dollars to wash and dry and deliver back to your room. This place is very reasonably priced.

Room Tip: don't stay in any rooms in the front unless you don't mind a lot of road and traffic noise.

We stayed there for 2 nights, with a room overlooking the north of the valley (more quiet than the rooms on the road/entrance side). The room is clean. There's no AC (as in most Boquete hotels) but the fan was just perfectly enough for a town peaking at 1000m (3000ft) high. The only point is that there is no restaurant in the hotel, they only serve breakfast. But this is compensated with a long list of delicious restaurant across the town... At a walking distance. The closest is only 3min away...

I recommend this place for any short stay (2-3 nights, maybe if you stay longer you may want to pick a place with more amenities...?), it is nice and the price is decent.
