Casa Sucre was the most perfect hub for our introduction to Panama! Rich and Alyce were so friendly, attentive and helpful that we truly felt like we'd gained new friends. Casco Viejo is beautiful- but Alyce warned us that it does get loud at night. She provided earplugs and was concerned it would bother us, but I must say that from our downstairs apartment, the noise wasn't a problem: the bedroom is at the back of the building and opens to the inside courtyard, nicely separated from the party noise outside. We slept so well! Daily breakfast in the cafe was always delicious and Oh! that Panama coffee!!! Shanny, in the cafe, was awesome and made us feel like family! Ironically by the end of our trip, the panic over coronavirus was imposing restrictions, but when life gets back to normal, we anticipate returning some day. BTW, Alyce, if you're reading this, our cruise was canceled the day before we were to board, so we never did get on the cruise ship. Keep the coffee hot! We'll be back!…
Our stay was magnificent! We stayed in a clean, lovely, well appointed apartment with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The hotel is located in the heart of the historic Casco Viejo. The owners Rich and Alyce are friendly and welcoming. Eating in their cafe is a must. Wonderful coffee, and a nice assortment of food for breakfast and lunch. Try the quiche made fresh daily by the owner! What a gem. Panama is a wonderful place to visit. So much to see from the canal, to the Indian Village, Bio Museum. Wonderful restaurants and above all friendly people. If you enjoy the outdoors and visiting different cultures, Panama is a great place to visit.
We stayed at Casa Sucre for four nights last week and really appreciated the warm reception from Alicia,Richard and Jonny. The hotel captures the atmosphere of the old town in a central location close to numerous restaurants and historic buildings. The coffee shop provides an excellent breakfast and great coffee, the bedrooms are very comfortable and the owners are happy to share their local knowledge. The local area is vibrant into the small hours but this is all part of the experience. Highly recommended.
Casa Sucre We had a small room on the upper floor (steps). + Fridge and microwave, corner balcony overlooking an active intersection (great place to sit and have an evening drink) A shared living room added space. Great location. Needed to wear the provided earplugs on Sunday night. Other nights were quieter. Great Breakfast selections included at their Coffee Shop on the corner. Owner Alyce makes it all happen! An American transplant, she connected us with airport rides and personal tours. Our Room was a “3” because of the noise, and double bed size, but loved the balcony. Still a highly recommended place to stay. There are other rooms and apartments here you might want to consider.
Service: Welcoming and Friendly! Rooms: Charming and comfortable. We were upgraded to a small apartment at no additional cost but either way the property is interesting. Location: This is in the heart of Casco Viejo and is the perfect location for the entire area. The area is very loud at night and we were provided ear plugs which, for us, was totally unnecessary but appreciated. Cafe: great coffee, the lunch sandwiches are amazing and the breakfast was good.
