“New Year's 2013”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Great little boutique hotel centrally located in the old French quarter of Panama City. Lots of renovation going on all around it but this place is top of the line! Includes excellent restaurant next door on one side and cozy breakfast café on the other. We had the suite with 2 bedrooms ( on a loft), Jacuzzi tub, balcony over the narrow, quaint street and spacious sitting room with terrific sound system/kitchen. Beds were comfortable, ambience relaxing, staff professional - all you could ask for! Recommend it highly.

Room Tip: as in most boutique hotels in this city there are no elevators. For some travelers this could be a c...

One of our best decisions for our trip was staying here.
We stayed for 5 nights at the Casa del Horno with consistently good service. It was a great breakfast each morning, and the staff would always help us plan our one activity for the day.

AND Also, the location and facilities are just perfect. It's close to everything. The rooms are cosy with enough privacy as well.

a Gem we found in Panama Casco Viejo. We tried 2 different rooms, standard and suite and they both look amazing. Perfect location, staff friendly and great value for money. The rooms are big, the suite spread over 2 floors has a huge Jacuzzy and is decorated in a very elegant way.

Loved the space. Beautiful and modern. Service was very nice but not knowledgeable at all. Kinda disappointing there. The tour provider they've negotiated with was a huge disappointment. Usually expect more from this caliber of hotel.

It is a benefit to have such an additional right next to your lodging. The "old town" architectural theme is continued into this building also. The coffee is good, as well as other items on the menu. I especially enjoyed the large glass doors through which a customer is able to view the street activities. The prices are reasonable, and one does not feel rushed by the staff.

Beautiful hotel, bilingual & helpful staff, great location, and tasty breakfast. Highly recommend! 2 nights in the old city is perfect. Definitely go to the fish market and Las Clementine for dinner. A must... Miraflores locks.

The good: Excellent area of the city, full of character, very nice cafes, bars and restaurants, very atmospheric and nostalgic. Even if you don't stay in this area, Old City is awesome, and not to be missed when visiting Panama City. The hotel is only a few blocks away from the President's Palace, which makes the area very safe due to constant police presence. The room we had was spacious, with balcony, living area and kitchenette - like a small apartment. Charming design. Nice breakfast is included and is served in a cafe next door. Late night concierge to get your questions answered and concerns addressed, or help you plan the next day.

The not-so-good: Room wasn't very clean - not disgusting dirty of course - but just dusty and the floors seems unwashed (beds and towels were clean though, so the general dustiness was not a huge deal for me personally). A bottle of water from the minibar came in at US$9 - the ones we later got from a convenience store across the street were less that US $2. The room faced a small but popular street, and let in every sound from the street and the bars in the area - so you will be hearing voices, laughter, music, honking, yelling and everything in between early into the morning, until 5-6am on the weekend, as was the case for us. Then, at 7am construction began at the building directly across the street... That's not the hotel's fault, but just FYI. One of the concierge guys lied about how much the taxi ride to the regional airport should be... his "guess" was way higher than what the ride actually costs. We figured he was trying to make a few extra bucks by having his friend drive us and charge us more than what others charge (so beware - the ride to/from international airport (one way) should not be more than US$26 and to/from regional airport (one way) should not be more than US$15; Panama operates largely on US currency).

Tips: Take the double-decker bus that stops nearby - this will give you a chance to see the entire city. There are two routes, one of which also goes to the Panama Canal (it isn't very exciting, at least from a point of view of two 30 year old women...). Bus ticket cost about $25 per person - you get it directly from the bus driver when you get on and it's good for the whole day to hop off and on anywhere. Eat at a restaurant called Tantalo in Casco Viejo. The restaurant is on the next block from Casa del Horno hotel and serves amazing tapas-style food. Amazing. At 9:30 at night it was packed, so come earlier to avoid waiting for a seat. We went there twice and tried pretty much 2/3 of the menu during our two visits - every dish was top notch! It seems that there's also a hotel/guest house by the same name above this restaurant - if the food at the restaurant is any indication, I'd try and stay at Tantalo Hotel next time I am in Panama City!
