Overall great place to stay. Pros: David and Monica are awesome. Clean, comfortable, convenient, and affordable. Cons: Street is very noisy (but I think you will find that anywhere in Panama City). If someone's smoking on the main balcony you can usually smell it in the room. Other than these two caveats, I highly recommend it.
David & Monica picked us up at the airport & showed us around their pad. It has several rooms & a common living space with 2 out side decks & a large kitchen for common use.
We got some advise on where to go for dinner & sights to see.
If you are looking for breakfast then you will be disappointed. But it would be a great place to stay a few if you were wanting to buy some groceries & cook in the large kitchen. There is a small convenience store across the street. You can walk to the Venetto or scores of restaurants.
The AC worked well & the bed was comfortable.
It isn't super fancy but we had a good time, met an interesting guest & it fit our needs perfectly. David runs a good business!
Great location, very good service and huge room with your own bathroom and balcony. What else?
The downsides of this place didn't have much to do with the space itself. It's loud because there is much construction going on in Panama City. You'll hear that, plus cars honking and big trucks going by. The solution... wear earplugs at night. That turns the chaos into white noise and lets you sleep. Lastly, as others have said, this is not a luxury hotel, so don't expect gold-plated anything.
What you can expect are very nice hosts (who don't live here but are only about 15 minutes away). Dave speaks perfect English and Monica is a sweetie who is happy to practice a little Spanish with you when she's there. When the elevator was under repair, Dave carried my mother's luggage up four flights of stairs. He showed us where all the restaurants were on a map so we could find them easily. He was accessible and helpful. They will also transport you to and from the airport. They're great!
This space we stayed in is a suite, with a huge shared kitchen and living room, plus four bedrooms. I was traveling with my mother, so we opted for the queen bedroom which had its own private bath, balcony and lots of storage space. Everything was simple but it all worked, and it was clean enough. There's free laundry - a nice bonus. There's air conditioning and a fan so your room is quite pleasant. The television is a nice flatscreen. We were quite comfortable here and we felt perfectly safe at all times.
This place is in El Cangrejo so it's not too far from anything. Taxis are cheap if you don't want to walk. Local drivers don't wait for pedestrians so I'd highly recommend a taxi if you are not used to dodging traffic.
We met some of the other guests staying in the suite and they were all very nice, respectful people. I would stay here again.
Thank you, Dave and Monica!
The place got the job done and it was nice to have a private bathroom. There was a lock on every door which was nice to not worry about things being stolen. Our bedroom was on the street side, so it was very noisy at night (had to use earplugs since the Panamanians like to use their horns!). Overall, a good cheap place to stay.
We had a great stay at Speakeasy Panama. David picked us up from the airport when we arrived, and dropped us off at the bus station upon our departure! Location is perfect in the El Cangrejo district. Apartment was perfect for our needs. A/C, hot water, clean sheets and comfy bed. Can be a little bit loud at night but it offers great security and overall, a great stay!
Everything from the airport pick-up to my departure went really well. Dave is a very experienced, very friendly and perfectly organised host. The room was clean and had all I needed, and I met some of the other guests who were staying at the same apartment. The building is in the Cangrejo neighbourhood which is a very safe area with mini markets and restaurants in walking distance. Taxi to Casco Antiguo is approx. $3 and to Albrook National Airport approx. $4.
It's a great place if you want to stay in central Panama City. Would stay again!

Honest Kind Gentle Man!
Sorry Folks!... but I am just not set up to "show rooms" without a confirmed reservation. Likewise I do not exchange contact information without a confirmed reservation. Both practices are contrary to the "terms and agreement with AirBnB and have proven to be a potentially unsafe, difficult, awkward, and time consuming.
Our general experience has been that guests that take advantage of airbnb by contacting us via the system yet insist on transacting off-line of airbnb are most prone to take advantage of us as hosts.
Plus soliciting us via the airbnb messaging system to transact off-line puts our standing in jeopardy with airbnb. it would be documented in writing that we are willing participants to usurp the system.
...But I'd love to host you NO DOUBT. Smile!
