“FANTASTIC B@B”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

I would categorize the accommodation as a spectacular B@B owned an operated by a charming
and service oriented couple. I stayed in an apartment with a private entrance on the street and an attached courtyard,
The space was sizeable and very reasonably priced given the location in the old city. The Coffee Shop which is also where breakfast is served is rated as the number 3 restaurant in Panama City.
I can only think of positives for this property. If this type of accommodation suits you, look no further. The manager of the property is also available to be a tour guide at a reasonable cost. I retained him for an entire week.

Stayed February 2014, travelled solo

A great little place in a safe and historic part of town. Ideal for sightseeing and very friendly helpful owners. Only slight criticism was the poor choice of breakfast but there were good options elsewhere ....
We would certainly come back.

Room Tip: Try and get the loft room which is hidden away in the courtyard - no noise from street. 2 floors wit...

We arrived to Casco Viejo without a place to stay. Although there weren't two nights available in the same room, Rich set us up with a two night stay in rooms next door to one another. We simply shifted after the first night and got a great deal! The rooms are comfortable and clean. If you're lucky, the owner's little silky terrier will great you on the balcony in the morning. The cafe serves coffee from a coffee farm we visited while in Boquete. The one downside is the area really perks up at night with loud club music from all corners.

Like so many hotels that are converted from old buildings this one is more charming than comfortable. Our beds were up a flight of step, narrow stairs with the bathroom downstairs. The space was generous with a kitchen that would have been nice if we were staying longer. Whatever the place lacked in comfort was made up by the friendliness of the American owner. We were leaving before breakfast the following morning and he made sure we had muffins, granola and yogurt in our frig so we could have a bite to eat before catching our plane home.

I was pleased with this location, they really made it feel like home. They are located in Casco Antiguo near the Presidential palace so you definitely feel safe here. The bedding was comfortable but the rooms are a bit small. You have to be a traveler looking to commune in the common living room with other guest which I love to do!!! Probably the only negative is the restoration and construction in the area does increase noise level and cause traffic nightmares. Once this is done - this area will be good competition for the old city of Cartagena!!! Enjoy the coffee house by the same owner.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a balcony.

Nice couple runs this fun location in historic Viejo. My brother and I with our wives stayed here and found it very convenient to walk around to see some nice sights and views of the city. The owner Alyce got us free access to the rooftop bar across the street (Tantalo's) which has a great night time view of the city. Rooms are tucked away keeping you quiet from a very busy city.

Reviewed 31 December 2013

There are really nothing but great things to be said about Casa Sucre, and most of them have been covered in the variety of reviews available. I agree completely with all the comments about how lovely the accommodations are, how gracious the hosts Alyce and Rich, and how perfect the location is in the fascinating Casco Viejo area. The coffee shop is equally fantastic! Excellent+ ratings on all of the above.

So here's why I almost gave Very Good and not Excellent. We happened to be in town on a holiday weekend - who know Mother's Day was a holiday? But it is, and apparently a big one. Through absolutely no fault of the owners, they are on a very busy, very noisy corner. Tenants in the building across from us played ridiculously loud music until around 2:00 a.m. Cars driving by honked at all hours and also blared very loud music. It was really hard to sleep, even with ear plugs.

I understand that it is not at all this way when it's not a holiday. So if you are a light sleeper or need a lot of quiet, you may want to ask if it's a holiday when you are planning to be there.

Otherwise, I couldn't recommend Casa Sucre more and would go back there again in a moment during a non-holiday time.

Room Tip: I would not suggest the corner/end room due to noise.
