Hotel Casa Panama mixes the trendy and eclectic atmosphere of the Casco Viejo neighborhood while still staying true to its original structure that dates back to over 300 years. With a large open floorpan and minimalistic architecture the hotel has 31 uniquely designed rooms, two restaurants, a beautiful rooftop terrace, and a small swimming pool you can enjoy year-round. It’s also one of the best deals for travelers on a budget that want to stay in Casco Viejo, which is arguably the coolest neighborhood in Panama City 🙂


Hotel Casa Panama

The hotel is located in the historic Casco Viejo neighborhood and full of charm. During the day you’re steps away from exploring the historic Spanish colonial streets and alleys, then at night dine at some of Panama City’s best restaurants and party with locals.


The minimal, rustic design of the hotel uses material like stone, wood, ceramic, iron, concrete and glass to make you feel welcome and each room has been uniquely designed with views of either the sea, city, or internal garden.

The Rooftop

Hotel Casa Panama

After a hot day of exploring the streets of Casco Viejo, head up to the hotel rooftop and cool off in the small sitting pool. Order a cocktail from the rooftop bar and sit back and relax! In the evenings this is also an amazing spot to have a drink and view the lit up Panama City skyline in the distance. Some guests have mentioned the rooftop can be a bit noisy on the weekend if you’re trying to sleep so be sure to join the fun or search for a quieter hotel to stay at.

The Food

Santa Rita

The hotel has two amazing on-site restaurants: Santa Rita, a Spanish tapas style restaurant and Lazotea located on the rooftop.

Value For Money

The main reason I wanted to highlight this hotel is that it offers and incredible value for the money. Rooms at Hotel Casa Panama start at just under $70 / night, which is a deal for the amenities offered and Casco Viejo location.
