We stayed here for 2 months. The rate was very fair for long term rental. We chose this place because of the number of amenities available: 2 fully equipped kitchens, two TV areas, small pool, plenty of rooms, and lots of people to hang out with. The house was cleaned every day, except Sunday). The location is farther than most...

Stayed in Villa Michelle april 2010 (beginning & end of my trip) and May 2011. It's not a B&B, it's not a hostel, it really is a home in a resedential area. I really like that when travelling and a nice change from the typical backpacker hostels or impersonal hotel. Big living room, 2 kitchens (the one inside has everything...

There is a pool and two well equiped kitchens. Unfortunately the owner does not have a sign at all (not even a little sign "Michelle" or something like that on the door bell) nor a house number - so we just randomly rang the door bell to ask after checking google maps... (the map provided does not help). The pickup...

There was no breakfast so I'm not sure why its classified as a B&B. Its just an OK hostel that charges too much for what it is. The manager pushed a million tours on us that always had to do with a cousin of hers, and we were overwhelmed. We stayed only one night and switched hotels as soon as...

We stayed at Villa Michelle for two days and nights. There are several bathrooms and dining spaces, two kitchens and a number of guest rooms. The place is colorful and has lots of character. It was however our only "B&B" that didn't actually provide breakfast. There was plenty of space to cook your own and that's what we did, so...

Villa Michelle is a nice place to stay and offers guests the use of kitchens as well as wifi internet. It is a reasonably priced accommodation in Panama City. However we found the owner to be a rather difficult lady whom was very concerned with being paid. We paid for a week in advance and before the week was up...

Villa Michelle was a good hostel to stay at. The owner's house was huge and spacious with a swimming pool. You can meet other guest travelling for fun or on a business trip. It is a home away from home. You can cook your own food, watch tv or simple lounge on the patio. The rooms are very spacious and...
