La Isabela Suites is a Boutique apart-hotel built on the concept of space, elegance and comfort. Located in the heart of Casco Antiguo, only steps from culture, markets, dining, and bars, and with a unique quality of service. La Isabela Suites offers an alternative type of travel, away from the small, standardized and impersonal massive hotel rooms without the inconvenience of a self-catering apartment. Because we understand that the true luxury means not having to worry about anything.

The space

Our apartment is a spacious 120 sqm (1200 sq. ft.) with high ceilings (14ft/4.5m). It offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room and full kitchen. The four sets of French doors leading to the balcony and courtyard bath the apartment in light during the day. For your comfort, we provide luxury memory foam mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets and a pillow menu. For your health, our toiletries are organic and are alcohol and paraben free. The apartment is air conditioned, has high speed WiFi, large flat screen TV, Nespresso espresso maker, Ipod ready alarm/music player and a smartphone for local use. The apartment is a first floor apartment. It has a large front balcony on the street and offers access to a 1300 sq ft (130 sqm) internal courtyard with lounge chairs and outdoor Balinese showers for outdoor dining or simple relaxation. (Please note below in Interaction with Guests that we also offer a level of service far beyond any apartment in the city.)

The building is an architectural gem. One of the world’s leading restoration architects, Francisco Montanes, and a cutting edge Spanish design group, Bersale, S.A., worked together for almost two years to restore La Isabela to its former elegance. Their vision was to adhere to UNESCO’s World Heritage Site Guidelines and maintain the 19th century elements of La Isabela’s colonial architecture while incorporating touches of cutting edge design. To complement their efforts, selected pieces of Panamanian art are exhibited throughout the building and the apartment. La Isabela – an integration of styles, materials, and perspectives ranging from the 19th to the 21st century.

Guest access

The apartment has a large front balcony on the street and offers access to a 1300 sq ft (130 sqm) internal courtyard with outdoor Balinese showers so you can cool off and lounge chairs for relaxation and outdoor dining. There is also a reception office on the ground floor where there is a concierge to assist you. There is high speed WiFi there as well as in the apartment.

This apartment-hotel can't be beat. Right in the heart of Casco Viejo, near shopping, restaurants and other entertainment. Andres and his staff were extremely hospitable before and during our stay. They also were very helpful at coordinating logistics for arrival and departure, thanks to their loading area and relationship with a local chauffeur. The facilities at La Isabela were gorgeous. Very modern, comfortable, clean, stylish, and spacious for our group of five. Highly recommend.

What an incredible treat. It felt more like staying in a well appointed home than a hotel, but with all the added benefit of a boutique hotel staff. Incredibly clean, super comfortable and well appointed – its my new go-to in Casco.

Andres and the whole team at La Isabella suites went beyond their way to help us with some unrelated travel issues and with everything that came up during our stay. They facilitated a very nice babysitter to allow us a dinner getaway. Our 4 yr. old daughter was happy staying here, expect being on holiday we missed having a pool. A bit of noise throughout the day but not bad at bedtime as bedrooms are in the back of the building.

Isabela Suites was an excellent choice in lodging for us. It was a great location - near many restaurants, shops and beautiful scenery. The apartment was beautiful and had everything we needed. The best part was the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. They arranged day trips, drivers and make restaurant reservations for our family. The staff at Isabela Suites helped to make our trip to Panama extra special! We can't thank them enough.

It was great to have you with us despite the initial problems you had to encounter. We are still fighting with Barro Colorado so they allow you to change the dates (we will not give up that easily!) and we will keep you informed. Hopefully we will see you again at La Isabela Suites! With our warmest regards, Andres

We loved our stay at La Isabela and would highly recommend. The location is right in the heart of Casco Viejo and easy to get around. Great dining options within walking distance. Our favorite, the outdoor shower in the courtyard, simply awesome.

The location is great, right in the middle of Casco Viejo, walkable to downtown along the boardwalk, and cheap taxis everywhere. The suite is perfect for sharing - spacious, well appointed, it has everything you need, and a good value if you share. The staff was awesome- answered all of my crazy emails without delay, warmly greeted us, and would have gotten us just about anything we could have asked for. The level of service is excellent. I will recommend this place to anyone traveling to Panama City. One tip - if you want to save a bit of money and speak just a smidge of Spanish (or just have Andres write anything down for you), skip the private driver - there are cheap taxis everywhere, all the time. The driver was great, super nice, but a driver - not a tour guide. So I am not making a recommendation about using La Islabela tour guides - we never used that service - just the private driver. Except for going to the airport, that was super convenient at 5am....

Response from Andres:
Dear Susan It was a pleasure to have you and your family with us. We are sorry that there was a misunderstanding: you rented the services of a chauffeur, not of a guide, for the very specific trip you did, as it was carefully designed for you according to what you requested. We are sorry it was not clear and you were expecting something else. We hope in the future to have another opportunity to serve you again. Con nuestros mejores saludos, Andres
