About the hotel
The building itself is nice and spacious and comes with a small swimming pool. Being on an busy road results in a lot of noise within the Casa.
The Casa is on a very busy road in Panama City. Across the road you will find a German restaurant Steinbock. To our surprise with heavy police protection. We found out that about 300 meters to the North a not so save neighborhood is located. From the Casa it's easy access to the corredor sud highway.
We used the 4 person room. It's on the ground floor and the entrance is just besides the reception which feels strange. The room feels like a cellar/bunker kind of thing. It appears to be a storage area converted to an room. We did not like it at all.
We came in the low season and the only guests in the Case. We deed not feel welcome at all. Absolute silent check in. We felt like intruders instead of guests.
Everything was clean and tidy.
A simple breakfast is included in the price. Toast, egg, juice and coffee. No fruit.
Would I go there again: Definitely not.
The room was spacious and the property was nice. Beautiful courtyard with a mango tree and a small swimming pool. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly. He tried so hard to help us when we had a problem booking the cannel tour
Highly recommend this property
Visited Panama City with friends and stayed at the Casa for about 4 days. Its a beautiful property in the heart of the city and felt good to stay in a home. The house comes with an onsite manager, and breakfast every day. The pool is very relaxing, if you are into playing pool - there is also a pool table under a gazebo. There is a beautiful mango tree that kept dropping yummy mangoes that the staff will cut up for you. I would give the property a "good rating" with a huge upside potential. The rooms are decent - the fan in mine did not work. There is AC in each room but the staff does turn them off when you leave the house. The breakfast is decent - usually eggs, cereal, toast, bacon or sausage, fresh juice and fruits. The rooms are simple, some are larger than others. Only 1 safe out of 5 rooms worked. If a little money can be spent, this can be turned around to a top notch house. As I went with a bunch of guys, it was not a big deal, but some ladies but might find some of the basics lacking compared to a hotel. The staff is friendly - Gloria who helps with house work and sets the breakfast is amazing. Excellent location and a beautiful property.
The staff was friendly and the building was nice at the first glance. But when we entered out room, we found 3 big cockroaches within the first 10 minutes. Looking at the room, it looked not well maintained and obviously not cleaned properly. There were socks under the bed from a previous guest. All in all its not worth the money!
We just stayed at casa Ramirez bedroom with private bath
The bathroom was a disaster with the taps falling of the vanity the showerstall was moldy tiles were cracked a.the bed was so so
We had the room adjacent to the breakfast,commom area didn't sleep until after midnight since other guest where hanging out there with lots of talking
The breakfast very basic with factory made 2 inch pancakes a bit of fruit plain cornflakes and bottled juice
Although the owners are friendly, we won't stay there again
Next time we go to the casco antiguo area
