This is a wonderful place to stay - right beside the forest - where they put out bananas to feed the squirrels, birds and monkeys....all of which we saw, as well as a sloth, and Agouti Neques. Honestly, you would never know that you were in the city, where the traffic is crazy !Gilma was great - answering all kinds of questions, booking our Canal partial transit tour, booking our flights to Isla Contadora, transfer from Tocumen airport. She speaks excellent English, so is easy to communicate with. The breakfast staff don't speak a lot of English.Breakfast was very good - you can pick what you would like to eat off of a limited menu, and if you would like a beer, wine or soft drinks, there are some in a fridge. You keep track of what you use, and pay for them at the end of your stay - very reasonably priced too.The rooms are clean, with a fan and air conditioning - no issues with hot water, beds are comfortable. There is free Wifi at the B&B, which is always nice.Easy to get to Casco Veijo, Amador and to get out of the city to the West. We did have taxi driver or two who did not know how to get there, but we told them the area, and we got there. You either have to take taxi to eat out, or can order some food in off of the menus that are there.Be sure to climb up to the top of Cerro Ancon - it has a great view of the canal.If you enjoy meeting other guests, and like the smaller, at home feel...this is the right place for you - I would stay here again in a minute.
