The Balboa Inn Panama City Reviews
New kid on the block - a winner Jul 31, 2008
Our favorite place had no space and after some Googling we ran into the Balboa Inn which opened just a month ago after extensive renovations.
It's run by a Dutch couple and the way they are going, I'm sure it's going to be a very popular B&B in the near future.
First of all, the location is ideal. Balboa is in what used to be the American Canal Zone. A very green, quiet and safe neighborhood. Close to the city, yet with its own atmosphere. The domestic airport is just 5 minutes away. The Amador Causeway (rent a bicycle!) a 10 minute walk and being at the slopes of Ancon hill it's a great hike all the way to the top.
Secondly, the inn itself is very nice. A huge (covered) terrace surrounded by a beautiful garden! We saw 4 tucans just hopping around the first day! The rooms are not huge but have all the amenities you need and small but well equipped private bathrooms.
But like most B&B's the personal attention of the owners makes the difference between just a place to stay or a great lodging experience.
Saskia & Thorwald are going out of their way to make sure their guests are making the most out of their stay in Panama and enjoy their time at the Balboa Inn. Their Colombian assistant Sandra is a jewel.
If you need an affordable place to stay from where to explore Panama City and surroundings, go for the Balboa Inn.
