We spent 2 nights at this tastefully renovated bed and breakfast in the heart of Casco Viejo. We arrived late after a long day on a Panama Canal transit to find the central area of the Casco, as the locals call it, closed to vehicle traffic due to the Jazz Festival that weekend. We were dropped off at Las Clementinas restaurant, which is also owned by the same group. Marvin at Las Clementinas personally escorted us through the crowds to Canal House and got us settled into our suite. The evening staff at Canal House was welcoming, but their English is limited if you can't speak Spanish. Our suite was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and all rooms now have iPads for guest use with their free WiFi. Our suite had a comfortable living room with satellite TV, as well as another flat screen TV in the bedroom. Breakfast is served in the dining/living room area, with contemporary furnishings. They will serve breakfast early if needed, but they usually start around 8 a.m. Guests have a choice of menu items that are prepared especially for you. The inn is staffed 24 hours a day, so guests don't have a front key, but that wasn't a problem at all. Canal House's location makes it the perfect starting point to explore this section of Panama City that is undergoing renovation to historic buildings. It's within an easy walk to many historic sites and wonderful restaurants for lunch and dinner.
