Why stay with us

There are many places to stay in Panama but there’s only one Balboa Inn. This is why we think you should stay with us:

Our location can't be beatenLocation – location – location
We’re in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood, with access to everything you might need by public transport or a simple walk. You can take a walk from the hotel to the top of Ancon Hill located right behind the Balboa Inn. Quite an enjoyable hike and you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the city’s skyline and the Panama Canal  or take a short taxi ride and  visit the Metropolitan Park , Amador cause way or  visit the Miraflores Visitor Center and  the old town Casco Viejo. You can easily do 2-3 things a day while staying at the Balboa Inn.


Helpful, experienced & friendly staff

rosie and simon 2Simon, Rosie, and the staff are here to help you  make  the most of your time in Panama, from the time you first contact us by e-mail until we call you a taxi to the airport.





Getting to and from the Balboa Inn

And another great reason to stay with us is to avoid downtown Panama City’s insane traffic. This kind of madness simply doesn’t occur in Balboa. Getting in- and out of town is a 5-minute ride without any stress. This is very

Traffic madnessconvenient if you drive your own rental car (which you can pickup at the nearby Albrook airport).

And at the Balboa Inn parking is free.
