Absolutely fantastic stay at the La isabela suites! Andres was a delightful host. He took care of every little detail for us and was extremely accommodating. The suites are very spacious and impeccably clean. Beautiful inside balconies, very private and quiet. Wonderful little oasis in the middle of Casco Viejo!

Great location rooms and staff. The beds are very comfortable. And they provided coffee tea water and milk, with many options on brewing your favorite drink. The staff was very helpful with arranging a driver for the airport and a trip to Anton Valley.

We didn’t stay in the main hotel but stayed in the annex. Turned out to be a nice one bedroom with kitchen and living room on beautiful little square (Plaza Bolivar). Quiet, intimate, with three restaurants right out the front door. Easy walk to all Casco Viejo. Bed was satisfactory. Air conditioning was very good. Balcony on second floor perfect for looking over the square with a coffee in the morning or glass of wine at night.

We stayed in a 2 story apartment in the suites annex. It had a great balcony overlooking Bolivar Square. Wonderful people watching. The excellent Casablanca restaurant is downstairs. We watched a solemn religious procession pass right in front the Friday before Good Friday. While great for us, be warned that there is music and activity until at least 11PM and later on weekends, so don't stay here if you are an early to bed person. Ask to stay in main building instead. The host, Andres, will see to your every need.

You will not find a better place to stay in Panama. We spent 4 night in the Executive Suites (formerly Hotel Columbia) and it was perfect. Andres simply can't do enough to make your stay memorable. Housekeeping does the room perfectly every day and no matter what you want Andres drops what ever he's doing and runs right over. He also can arrange tours and airport transportation. I've traveled all over the world and he is the most attentative host I have ever seen. Simply the best!!!!!
