Lovely stay, amazing breakfast, comfortable room, gracious desk host. PM restaurant service was disappointing---we were told to make a reservation, which we did, but then had to wait 45 minutes for a table. But the waiter comped us our drinks in exchange, which was kind.

Quirky and great.
Beautiful place. Plants, artworks, and great service. We loved our stay. Within walking distance to several nice restaurants. Breakfast was one of the best ever. Several sitting areas in gardens throughout the main property. Our room was not so private. We would stay here again.

Although it has its merits, the room walls are super thin and you can hear everything people are saying particularly if you have one of the rooms off of the court yard. Forget about trying to sleep if people are there talking. I would choose a different hotel next time.

Quick night stay here after traveling all day from Bocos Del Toro. Quick check in. Easy to find. Extremely friendly/helpful/patient/knowledgeable staff. Blocks away from central downtown.

Great price for the stay and friendly staff
Stayed at the annex building - clean and spacious room and bathroom, great view from the bedroom and hallway outside. Building felt safe. Free wifi. Friendly staff. Great breakfast on the patio on the main building. The main building has great ambience with the old designs and artwork and greenery. Con: The annex building hallway looks poorly maintained. My room has one wall that had frosted glass french doors (it was locked) but has no curtains - it was uncomfortable as the sun rose early and and brightens the room from the hallway light (which I turned off) and outside lights at night.

Loaded with character
Hotel absolutely loaded with character and charm. Staff extremely helpful and kind when the airline lost my luggage. Good location close to restaurants. Hot shower with good pressure. Great breakfast with breakfast room in a jungle type setting with a visiting squirrel. Loved the bright, colourful quirky artwork.

Excellent breakfast and great service
Arrived late at night and area seemed very unwelcoming, however I was to quick to judge and the next morning revealed a please t neighbour hood near to a park and the national museum. Hotel service was excellent and the rooms were basic but adequate with good WiFi. Breakfast was the highlight!!!! I could not fault it. Huge spread and so delicious

Restaurant is amazing but the hotel is not so good
Great breakfast and the restaurant that is part of the hotel is incredible. Its the best bit in my opinion and I would return to the restaurant even if I stayed in a different hotel. The rooms are very dated and I had 1-inch gap between the top of the door and door frame so it didn't feel particularly private or secure. I stayed two times in two different rooms but both were noisy. Any guests arriving late or leaving early can easily be heard. The worst bit was there a semi-transparent skylight above the bathroom. The staff walk on the roof to access an area to dry towels and my girlfriend was on the toilet when someone was walking across the roof and she could easily see the person so had he looked down he could probably have seen what was going on below!! The noise of the person on the roof was also very loud.
