I would definitely choose to stay at Baru Lodge if I was ever in Panama City again. What I loved most was the location. It is on a residential street just 2 blocks away from a metro station. That meant I could get around the city very easily. (The metro is brand new, so it's very clean, plus also cheap...

We spent two nights here going to and coming back from Bocas del Toro. Both times we arrived at night and left early morn. The rooms are very pretty and clean with air conditioning.

We do not know an owner of a motel so friendly, helpful, courteous and personable to your needs, requests and demands. Excellent quality breakfast and the staff at your disposal all the times. It is centrally located, close to Metro and the setting is very natural. Rooms are clean and have mini fridge and micro. They understand your needs and...

I stayed here for two nights. It was a little bit of work for my taxi driver to find it (about 20 minutes and a $30 ride from Tocumen international airport at night and $15 to the domestic PAC airport). Unassuming from the outside, on a street off of a somewhat busy neighborhood witn some day traffic noise if you...

The rooms were comfortable and the bathroom/shower was very clean. Their driver Michael took us to the albrook bus station to send us on to Santa Fe. This service ($7) was invaluable for a couple with very limited Spanish. He parked his car, walked us to the ticket window, and all but put our bags on the bus. What a...

Arrived in Baru Lodge after a wonderful week in a nearby National Park ecolodge - I was apprehensive about the city and how to get around. Baru Lodge was the answer to everything!

Guests are sacred at this place. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The showers are possibly the best you can get in Central America. The owner is a really nice person, but the ladies that serve at breakfast time have that almost typical "lazy-arrogant" attitude that I met in most of Panama. Breakfast is excellent though.
