My spouse and I stayed at Casa Sucre for 3 nights and had an absolutely delightful time. The innkeepers, Alyse and Rich, are two of the warmest, most gracious people that we have ever met. The property itself is something in between a proper boutique hotel and B&B and is all the more charming for it. The rooms have been meticulously decorated the coffeehouse/ café where breakfast is served feels so well integrated into the neighborhood. The location is superbly convenient to picking up the hop-on/hop-off bus while also affording a great position to begin a Casco Viejo walking tour.
One piece of advice – if you are someone who has to have silence and darkness to sleep well, either bring earplugs and an eyemask or ensure that you book one of the interior-facing rooms or apartments. There is a traffic cop on the corner who is whistle-happy and taxis on the street in Panama City honk their horns to indicate that they’re available for fares. Even though the inn is not on a “busy” street, there is street noise that may keep light sleepers awake.
Overall, we would not hesitate to stay at Casa Sucre again. Everything about it had a unique signature that you won’t find at a cookie-cutter property. BTW, the breakfast tamale in banana leaves is a MUST TRY for breakfast. There is a reason this property is so highly reviewed by folks who have stayed there – it has a lot to do with the rooms and property itself, but even more to do with the innkeepers and how gracious and welcoming they are. If you want a break from 4-star sameness, Casa Sucre is the perfect choice in Panama City!
