This was our 2nd trip to Panama exploring the country (Dec 2013), so we have stayed in a number of places, over the course of almost 4 weeks in country. Not only is this the best place in the city we have stayed at, but it is our choice as the most friendly, and value for the money in all the stops we made thru out Panama. it is close to Allbrook mall, the small airport, the causeway, fish market, but still in a quiet neighborhood. The breakfast...whats else to say, but awesome, fresh fruit, fresh bread, cereal, milk, juice. we never ventured into the day hungry. Friendly? well, we felt like family. they helped us rent a car, and arranged a taxi for our return trip home. My wife & I will see Marijke and Joris again on our next trip. as in this trip, both upon our arrival into country, and the night before leaving Panama.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Balboa Heights Bed & Breakfast in Panama City is located in Balboa, there where the Administration Building of the Canal is situated. The house is a typical wooden tropical style home dated from '50, the period that the US governed the Canal. The backyard is the foot of the Balboa Heights, an untouched piece of jungle. Animals, such as deers, capybaras, monkeys, Toucans and many other bird species are frequent visitors of the garden. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. A large colonial style bathroom is there to share. In the mornings guests can count on a full lovely breakfast. By foot you can visit Causeway Amador to see the ships pass by through the Canal. By car you are only minutes away from the Miraflores Locks, beautiful Casco Viejo or the shopping center Albrook Mall. Want to travel further domestically by plane or bus, the domestic airport and the bus terminal are also very close by. In a few words, this Bed & Breakfast is your jungle escape in the City and very conveniently located to move further onwards after a few days of sightseeing in the City. Your hosts, a young couple from The Netherlands, will be very honoured to have you stay with them. ... more less
