I am Dutch and have lived in Panama for 5 years now. I am a quiet person. I like to read, go to the movies, cook and travel.

Farieda was very gracious about using the rest of her clean, spacious apartment outside of the room we booked, including use of her two balconies, living room and laundry if we wished. Appreciated the free WiFi after spotty service in San Blas the few days prior. The neighborhood is walkable and conveniently located to bus stops and the new Metro. She even helped us arrange transport to Tocumen! Thanks very much Farieda!
Great place to stay in a wonderful location in Panama City. Farieda was very thorough with getting around Panama City and with El Cangrejo in general. Her restaurant recommendations are also spot on!
I had a great time at Farieda House.
She was very helpfull to find good restaurants close to her area, places to visit, things to do in the city. Everything was exactly what I expected from the pictures and the location. I didn t see her often because she was working when I was there but each time I had a question she aswered it quickly.
There is some noise from the street at night but you don t have a lot choice if you want to stay in the city. I think it is the same everywhere else.
Farieda is a wonderful host. The apartment is located up the street from "cabeza de Einstein." A great landmark for letting the cab drivers know how to take you home. She was so gracious to invite me to join her and her friends on a Sunday outing at the beach. The room has two beds which is good for friends traveling together. In my case, I was traveling alone. Great view from the living room.
Farieda was a perfect host!
Very kind, and super helpful. She even drove us to the bus terminal and helped us get the tickets we needed.
It was a perfect stay!
Muy buena anfitriona, trato cordial y ayuda en todo lo necesario. Limpieza en el apartamento y muy buena ubicación.
Perfect location. A lovely host. Thanks Farieda. Miriam
Our stay here was great! Farieda's place is located in a great area of Panama City. There are shops, restaurants and bars all in walking distance and it is close to many major tourist attractions.
The room was big, comfortable and clean as is the rest of the apartment. Farieda is a wealth of knowledge and was very helpful in suggesting best things to do and see.
El Cangrejo is a great neighborhood - we will be back and would definitely recommend a stay here.

We had a realy nice stay at Farieda´s place! From the welcome till we leaved we felt welcome and the place was greate! Loved the balkoney with the fiew over town, everything was cleane and the host answered every question and was very helpfull!
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit bei Farieda! Von Anfang bis ende fühlten wir uns wohl, alles war sehr sauber und der Balkon mit der tollen Aussicht über die Stadt war das Highlight! Die Gastgeberin beantwortete unsere ganzen Fragen und war sehr hilfreich!
The location is great. Really safe, close to a decent supermarket, pharmacy and many restaurants. Farieda was hospitable and made sure I had all I needed for a wonderful stay in the city. Thanks to her I met a group of great people at a party and was able to enjoy a bit of the holiday cheer with the local expat community.
The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The view is amazing. Unfortunately, being in the city, noise is just something you can't escape so the noise from the street does somehow find its way in. All in all, it made for a good rest stop before I left the city, and an enjoyable stay.
My husband and I recently stayed with Farieda on a trip through Central America. She was a wonderful, amazing hostess who went above and beyond her duties to help us! She was friendly, helpful in suggesting places to go, and even directed us on how to get around once we left Panama City. Moreover, her apartment is comfortable, clean, and secure, and she made us feel completely at home in her home. We would definitely recommend staying with Farieda if you are looking for a local's perspective, staying in a nice neighborhood and looking to meet people as you travel along the way!
Farieda is a neighbor and a good friend of mine. In a country where most people are lax about commitments, Farieda takes hers seriously. She is the most trustworthy and honest person I know and she's become the "go-to" source when people have any questions about the country - what to do, where to go, and who to talk to - not to mention she always seems to know which of the local restaurants, cafes and bars are worth visiting.
