We’ve have been in business for less than 2 years but the word is getting out about the Balboa Inn. As you can see, we’re doing well in the Tripadvisor ranking, especially if you consider that #1 and #2 charge triple and double our rates while #3-4 have much less reviews.  A lot of our guests have never written any review until they stayed at the Balboa Inn.  We think that’s a good sign.

Major Dutch consumer guide have us a # 1 ranking for 'best value'In a Panama travel insert of the leading Dutch consumer publication we were ranked #1 after a review of 32 hotels and inns in Panama and British travel review website Zoover named us “Top of the Week” (February 09). On the major US-based Bed & breakfast directory former guests have also shared their experiences.

But as they typically say in the advertising for investment funds: ‘past performance is no guarantee for future results’. We are aware of that so we work hard every day to keep our guests happy by giving them a great lodging experience and memorable time in Panama.

If you have any questions before you want to book, just drop us a line. Our service starts before you leave your home. Otherwise, check today to see if we have space and book your room online and we’ll help you have a great stay in Panama.

Happy guests at the Balboa Inn

    with any questions you might have.

    Hi, we stayd two days after a nice trip to the San Blas in the Balboa Inn.
    The people are very friendly and helpfull. The room was very nice and the breakfast also. The Balboa Inn is in a very nice region and with the taxi right down the street you can go everywere. We enjoyed the 2 days very much und feel save and welcome.
    If I stay another time in Panama, I would also chose Balboa Inn and his friendly people.

  3. I just completed a six night stay at the Balboa Inn, currently under management by Bill and Mieke Hamilton. The room I stayed in was always clean and kept refreshed by their friendly and helpful staff who had breakfast waiting for me just before I left every morning for work. As I ate breakfast each morning under the verandah, I was accompanies by colorful tropical birds in the side garden.

    The inn is in a very quiet and safe neighborhood, well within walking distance or a short drive from many of the local interesting attractions and great restaurants.

    The Balboa Inn everything you need for a quiet and relaxing base of operations if you are traveling for work or pleasure. Beyond that, Mieke and Bill are wonderful conversationalists and hosts, ensuring that I felt as if I were at my home away from home. I honestly cannot wait to go back.

  4. We spent three nights in Balboa Inn and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and friendly place to stay in a big and busy city. Nice breakfast, right price and great hospitality from Mieke and Bill who make you feel at home immediately and are always on the spot to help with phone calls and useful information. We hope to return to Panamá some day and then will certainly chose the Balboa Inn again.

    The Balboa Inn
    Op advies van vrienden, Thérèse en Ruud uit Enkhuizen boeen we dit hotel.
    Na een vlucht van 11 uur staat een chauffeur je op te wachten op de luchthaven en een uurtje later wordt je hartelijk verwelkomt door Mieke en Bill.
    Weldra zitten met een koel drankje op het terras van The Balboa Inn, met om ons heen tropische planten en vogels.
    Het hotel ligt in een rustige villawijk, goed bereikbaar.
    De kamers zijn fris en schoon en er is airco.
    Het sanitair werkt goed, je kunt een lekkere douche nemen.
    Er is Wifi.
    Mieke en Bill hebben veel contacten en willen op verzoek behulpzaam zijn met het boeken van uitstapjes, bv onze dagtocht door het Panamakanaal, taxi’s van en naar de luchthaven enz.
    Het voordeel hiervan is, dat je een bekende chauffeur krijgt en niet te veel betaalt.
    Het ontbijt is goed, ook als je heel vroeg weg moet, ga je niet met een lege maag op pad, je hebt altijd verse koffie gehad.
    Op een kleine loopafstand ligt The Grand Canal Café, waar je lekker en gezellig kunt eten.
    We kunnen dit hotel van harte aanbevelen.
