Albrook Inn, Panama City

If you’re flying to San Blas or Bocas del Toro early in the morning and need a good hotel near the Albrook Airport then the Albrook Inn is just the place you’re looking for.

Located in the residential Balboa neighborhood of Panama City, The Albrook Inn is just down the street from Marcos A. Gelabert Airport and a short ten minute drive from downtown Panama City and the Canal.

Originally guest housing for single officers back when the US was in control of the Canal, the Albrook Inn has been tastefully redone and is a great hotel option for those who don’t want to be right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the City.  Close enough but far away.

Room rates vary between $70 and $100 depending on how and where you book (I always go through  This rate includes a hot breakfast buffet with juice and coffee, a pool, a nice little “nature” trail, cozy and clean accommodations with private bath, hot water and air-con.  Don’t worry about hunting down a taxi at 5 am for your early morning flight, they have a very dependable airport shuttle for $5 per person.

The staff is friendly, speaks English and the atmosphere is pleasant.  The restaurant is great too. If they have French Onion Soup prepared get it!

The Portal gives the Albrook Inn two thumbs up! :-)
