Overlooking the metropolitan Cathedral in the heart of Casco Viejo, Panama City’s old quarter, sits Casa Del Horno. Built in the 1850’s by a French colony and formerly a bakery, the building has been renovated with contemporary elements enhancing the original structure. The luxurious interiors combine sophisticated boutique-style attributes with modern furnishing and exposed rustic calicanto stone walls. The hotel is oozing artistic passion, with cutting edge artwork and furniture filling the eight deluxe and penthouse suites, and Casa Del Horno’s very own sommelier is on hand to guide you on the impressive selection of wines, or give a wine tasting from the comfort of your own suite.
Casa Del Horno is located in the charming bohemian neighbourhood of Casco Viejo in Panama City’s 400 year old quarter. Casco Viejo is bursting with bars, restaurants and art galleries amidst the diverse history, culture and architecture, reflecting Panamanian and Colonial influences. The hotel is just a 35 minute road transfer from Tocumen international airport.
The eight suites of the hotel all boast beautifully rustic exposed stone walls paired with crisp white walls and polished hardwood floors. Each spacious suite has a state of the art modern kitchen with a fully stocked wine fridge, stylish bathroom (Jacuzzi included), king sized beds and a private balcony. For optimum luxury, the two penthouse suites are sprawled out over two floors and have two bathrooms for accommodating up to four guests.
Why we like it
We love the incredible interior design of this place – keeping as much of the original building as possible with stunning modern elements and flashes of vibrant green flora. Casco Viejo has a dynamic atmosphere – stay here and you’ll soon see why Panama City is considered to be one of the happiest cities in the world. With the rainforest, Pacific Ocean and the legendary Panama Canal surrounding the city, there is a variety of things to explore and discover.
