Other Things to Note
Consider also the sister Penthouse located on the same floor:
Panama regulation is allowing short term rentals exclusively to hotels. As a consequence, we can only offer rental agreements for more than 45 days. Note however, that we allow guests to cancel their rental agreement without penalty anytime, you will only be charged for the nights that you have already pre-paid via AirBNB and the extra nights that you may have enjoyed in case you decide to stay more. In other words, your maximum liability is for the nights that you have prepaid via AirBNB, the reminder is entirely up to you. We give you the opportunity to stay, if you wish, up to 60 days with our rental agreements.
Booking for more than six persons add $50 per persons per night.
Full Butler and maid services available at very reasonable rates.
I booked this penthouse for my friend's bachelorette party, there were 8 of us total. The place is even huger and nicer than it looks in the pictures, everyone was very comfortable and the view was great. Marco was a wonderful host, he was very helpful with getting us settled and giving us recommendations on thing to do. He was very accommodating and went out of his way to make an extra copy of the keys, and buy a new blow dryer and aux cable for the speakers. The area felt safe, minus a few cat calls which I guess is to be expected being in a group of girls. There was a market right around the corner which was very convenient, and Marco even had a few essential groceries ready for us when we got there. I'd highly recommend considering this place!
My family (7 adults) stayed at the El Congrejo penthouse for 5 days over Christmas. Marco was an excellent host. He was responsive and flexible with check-in and check-out. Marco met with us to explain the house rules and give us a tour of the apartment. The apartment was perfectly located on a quite street but walking distance to the bustling Via Argentina. The apartment was large, had lots of open space, and was consistent with the pictures online. The rooftop terrace with almost 360 degree views of the city was a lovely place to watch the Christmas Eve fireworks and sunsets on other nights. The place is quite sparse but there were plenty of beds and places to lounge during our time in the apartment. One other potential drawback is that a few things around the house are in need of repair (e.g., burned out lights) but Marco acknowledged this at the beginning and apologized in advance. Overall we were very happy with Marco and the apartment. We hope to stay there again on future trips to Panama City.
My family and I had a great time in Panama. The apartment worked great for our group of 7. There is a great little micro brew just one minute away. Romalia and Nora were the sweetest, giving the ladies in our group a lesson in Columbian cooking.
There was a fair amount of noise from the new construction next door but we were up and around usually.
thanks for your comment, Panama City is an incredibly ever-expanding city, constructions downtime are typical. I do not recommend downtime for people looking for a quite spot. Note also the Penthouse is located on the top floor of a tall building, as such especially if you keep windows closed, which you anyway have to if you keep A/C on, you won't hear any noise. Once again, many thanks for your visit, please come back soon :-)
Excellent place. Would recommend to all! The pictures are truly accurate. The terrace is massive! Was nice to go up there and catch the view at night. Great job, Marco.
The host did a great job and was very accurate with the description of the accommodations. Mark was accommodative to all of our needs.
Marko was a fantastic host! He had his assistant meet us at the property as soon as we arrived and got us in without waiting. There were a couple issues that we needed addressed about the condo when we arrived that Marko took care of within a day. In order to compensate Marko even gave us access to his additional penthouse to make up for the inconvenience.
The penthouse is lovely. It is large and accommodates plenty of people. The view from the rooftop is spectacular. We had a few problems but nothing major and we were still able to enjoy our stay. This penthouse is walking distance to many restaurants and the mini marts. If you are in the area you should try the Spanish restaurant Taberna 21. I highly recommend it! They even have a hair and nail salon right next door to PH Crystal where the penthouse is located. This was very convenient!! Our host Marco was very helpful with a few things that did not go right in the penthouse (e.g. the washer and dryer not working). He responded in less than 2 minutes and found a solution. I would consider staying in the penthouse again in the near future. This was a trip to remember. I was even proposed to on the plane on my way to Panama. Thanks again Marco!
