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 2nd floor , 120 sqm (1200 sq. ft.) with high ceilings (14ft/4.5m). The four sets of French doors leading to the balconies bath the apartment in light during the day. It offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room and full kitchen. The high ceilings (14 ft/4.5 m) and 4 sets of french doors leading to front and internal balconies 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 top (second) floor apartment. It has a large front balcony on the street and offers access to a extensive internal balcony overlooking the courtyard. Both balconies have seating 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 extensive internal balcony overlooking the courtyard. Both balconies have seating for outdoor dining or simple relaxation. 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 place was amazing, spacious, beautiful decor, home feeling. Celebrated my bday at a great restaurant overlooking the waterfront only 2 minutes walking distance. Cost value was so good. I will definitely come back and stay again and again. Tour bus within steps, museums, great running path along the waterfront. Nightlife, grocery store, restaurants, cafes all 5 star in walking distance. So nice of Andres to accommodate us so we could shower earlier than check-in. He mapped out the locations to visit, provided business service that we needed and car service upon departure. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place!

This is a great apartment and location. It is right in the middle of Casco Viejo, with plenty of places to eat, drink, and socialize. The apartment was clean, and the staff is very helpful with providing you plenty of activities while you are in Panama City. I recommend staying here. Outstanding service.

I could not have imagined a better place to stay than La Isabela Suites. The place is EXTREMELY close to all of the attractions in Panama City in beautiful Casco Antiguo. The apartment was beautiful, clean, and it provided a great value. Andres communicated with plenty of time prior to our arrival. The only part that I would improve is the water pressure in the shower within the Master Bathroom. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this property. When I go back to Panama, I will definitely be staying here again.

This is an EXCELLENT location in Casa Viejo in Panama City. We would HIGHLY recommend it. It is clean, well kept, comfortable (beds and pillows fantastic!), great value and WONDERFUL customer service by all! Andres and his staff went out of their way to cater to our every need. They will set up transportation if you need it. Safe area. It is close to everything you might want to do in Casa Viejo. Would stay again if we return!
