We had a wonderful time at Baru. The staff were kind and always willing to assist! They facilitated an early check in because our flight got in the morning to Panama andoffered us complimentary breakfast. Irwin was always friendly and willing to assist. They offer a continental breakfast, the rooms and very nice and clean. What you see in the...

Enjoyed our stay at the Baru Lodge overall, but we have several complaints. Offered large rooms with powerful A/C and nice amenities: flat screen tvs, rain head shower, comfortable beds, but is located in a residential neighborhood that even the veteran taxi drivers had difficulty finding. (Though it was very quiet!) Manager luckily gave us a business card with the...

We stayed at Baru for 3 nights and it was perfect. No frills, just a cold A/C, clean rooms and a very very comfortable bed. The breakfast was just ok (fruit, cake, cereal and coldcuts) but the backyard where it's served is an oasis. Location is fine too, it's just a short walk to Via Argentina - a great place...

Again, I stayed at this lovely B and B in the center of Panama City. I only needed to stay for one night of rest before going on to Boquete' the next day. The owner Erwin and his staff took very good care of me. I just love this place. It is spotless, comfortable and has a lovely garden. This...

Small and quiet. New decor... extremely clean and incredible service. Breakfast is included and there is a nice soothing back yard to chill in. There is also another place equally as good down the street if full, they work together to accomodate. Highly recommended, I went back to stay again on the way home. Also in a pretty safe location...

Where to start.... Since the minute we've got there, it was a total dissapointment, the place is not a hotel, its just a very unplanned house and they just improvised everything! From the street, it has no visible sign so we had a very hard time finding it, even when our taxi driver was a local Panamenian! fortunaly he had...

“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.”
