We had a great time at Baru Lodge, Erwin was very helpful & accommodating. The room was simple but clean, smart & very quiet. We really enjoyed eating breakfast in the courtyard each morning & loved the location, only a stones throw away from the metro so it was easy to explore the city. Our only feedback is that the...

I would definitely choose to stay at Baru Lodge if I was ever in Panama City again. What I loved most was the location. It is on a residential street just 2 blocks away from a metro station. That meant I could get around the city very easily. (The metro is brand new, so it's very clean, plus also cheap...

We do not know an owner of a motel so friendly, helpful, courteous and personable to your needs, requests and demands. Excellent quality breakfast and the staff at your disposal all the times. It is centrally located, close to Metro and the setting is very natural. Rooms are clean and have mini fridge and micro. They understand your needs and...

I stayed here for two nights. It was a little bit of work for my taxi driver to find it (about 20 minutes and a $30 ride from Tocumen international airport at night and $15 to the domestic PAC airport). Unassuming from the outside, on a street off of a somewhat busy neighborhood witn some day traffic noise if you...

The rooms were comfortable and the bathroom/shower was very clean. Their driver Michael took us to the albrook bus station to send us on to Santa Fe.

“Our room was facing the street and was therefor a bit noisy in the mornings. I don't know for sure, but would suspect that rooms not facing the street would be quieter.”
