I didn't actually stay here, but some friends stayed here so I came to visit and eat and have drinks. It was very cheap. I had four beers and a fruit drink and my check was $10. The staff couldn't be friendlier and several people that I met who come here from out of town make this their usual place...

This family run B&B is very pretty it has a lovely court yard out the front and back to chill. Alva & team always have big smiles and are very happy to help. It's in a safe neighbourhood with lots of local amenities. If we had not stayed there we may have not made it to this part of town......

we booked this place for our first night after arriving in Panama. it is a bit run down, needs some refurbishing here and there. But hey, the owners are extremely nice and helpful. does this justify the high room price? I guess not, but if you don't mind paying too much but feel welcome and appreciated you better book a...

I really enjoyed my stay at PHB&B. The owners and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. I had a private room which, whilst a little small was perfect for a great nights sleep. There is a lovely back garden with communal area to meet fellow travellers. For Panama City, the price is very reasonable...

At the beginning I was not pleased with my staying over there. When the owners found out that I am not fully satisfied, they listen to my criticisms. Actually, we had a very nice and emotional conversation. The family that runs this place welcome everybody like good friends in their house. That's why you don't feel like in hotel, but...

I stayed there twice as I liked the atmosphere and especially the garden a lot. In hot Panama City a green garden to relax in the evening is not very common. Apart from the garden/terrace, where breakfast is served as well, this B&B also offers a common living area inside and a kitchen. Private rooms with own or shared bathroom...

“The private room with shared bathrooms are basically just like having a private bathroom except that it's out in the hall. When you use it, you can lock the door and have all the privacy you want. And there are other bathrooms so you don't have to worry about someone else's emergency.”
