My husband and I recently took a first trip to Panama City and after one night's stay in Casco Viejo at Canal House, debated for three more days whether to go to the coast or not. The Canal House, its comforts and attentive staff are simply hard to leave behind! An example of superb service: We booked online with no...

Thanks Canal House for a very relaxing stay. We had just finished 4 days on the Inca Trail in Peru and were looking for a relaxing, comfortable place to stay. This was it! Beautiful rooms and location, professional staff and service, excellent list of recommendations and things to do, great assistance in organising things to do and very friendly atmosphere....

The Canal House in Panama City is wonderful. Situated in the perfect location in Casco Antiqua for restaurants, walking, touring, sight-seeing. The rooms are wonderful - the food is fantastic and the staff is incredible.....exceptional service!

My partner and I stayed at the Canal House on our first and last nights in Panama. The staff was among the most helpful we have ever come across. The hotel is in the lively, beautiful, but sometimes slightly dicey Casco Antiguo, and this beautiful haven is well worth splurging on to have peace and comfort after exploring this neighborhood...

Samantha, Lith et al are the epitomy of hospitality. Once we stepped inside the doors of the Canal House, we felt welcomed, comfortable and quite simply, 'at home'. Understated, elegant and refined. No cookie cutter aestetics that characterise some boutique brands. Staff is visible yet invisible. Breakfast in the dining/drawing room is a great start to ones day. Nice space...

The Canal House is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a beautiful bed and breakfast/boutique hotel that's easy and no fuss. The staff is fantastic and very considerate and the space is peaceful and serene. It's also centrally located to all that's to do in Casco Viejo. If I ever am in Panama again, it's the only...

Located in Casco Viejo the hotel is within walking distance of fine dining , drinking and music. Taxi service to other city sights is inexpensive and easy. The Canal House provided a professional and relaxing atmosphere, a fine breakfast and a wonderfully informative hostess.There are only 3 rooms so plan ahead.

If big, impersonnel, corporate styled hotels located in business districts are your sort of thing then Canal House is not for you... The Canal House is located in the historic district of Panama City, Casco Viejo, in a side street just off one of the main squares. We only spent one night here on this trip but will definitely be...
