Great building....BUT!

  • 2 of 5
Let me start by saying that the Yoo Building, designed by Phillipe Starke, is a genuinely incredible piece of interior design. The lobby is crazy and bizarre and the pool is of 5 star hotel quality. The gym is a really high standard too. What a shame the high standard of the common areas is not replicated in the apartment or it's management.

My wife and I booked a week in the apartment and the owner's communication at the beginning was pretty good. However on arriving on a Monday we found out almost immediately that we had no hot water at all. We reported this to the property Manager,who turned up the next day with a technician (and his small child, no idea why). We hoped this would be problem solved however she unfortunately allowed the technician to leave without testing the water herself and of course it wasn't sorted. We immediately reported the problem again but this time the property Manager went silent on us for days and wouldn't respond to my emails at all. Then, without warning, she turned up on the Friday morning while my wife and I were asleep in bed and let her and the technician in. This was completely unacceptable and led to an awkward situation while we rushed to wake up and get dressed - hardly relaxing. So for 5 of the 7 days we paid for we were either without hot water, chasing to get it, being ignored or being disturbed without any warning. Totally aside from this we were not provided certain basic things such as a tin opener or a sink plug which just makes self-catering a pain.

Although the owner was apologetic at first she quickly lost interest and ultimately determined that our very poor experience wasn't worthy of any kind of partial refund. Advice - it's very easy to say you're sorry but talk is cheap and actions speak much louder. Had it been the other way around and we had fallen short as tenants I'm sure you wouldn't have been so hesitant to use our provided deposit.

To conclude, the Yoo Building itself is fantastic but if you book this place you better hope nothing goes wrong because you'll be on your own!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I'm glad that you agree with our previous guests that Yoo is an amazing building with top-class amenities and amazing views. We are very pleased to be able to offer our apartment for a fraction of the price of a room in a five-star hotel.

I understand from your e-mail dated 30/10 (three days after your arrival) that most of the hot water issue had been resolved, although you couldn’t turn the shower on full without the water getting cold. Once again, I’m sorry that it took another day to sort that out.

Regarding your experience of being woken up at 9.00 AM, I know from an e-mail that I was cc’d into (sent to you on Thursday 30/10) that Edith had informed you that she’d be calling in with  the plumber the following morning. What this shows is how difficult it can be to resolve this type of issues, which, although rare, can unexpectedly arise in any property, without causing inconvenience.

I have informed Edith about the tin opener and the sink plug. I’m sure she would have provided you with these items, had you asked while you were still in the apartment.  

Thank you again. I'm glad you still enjoyed your holiday.

Highly recommended!

We rented this apartment on a friend’s recommendation and loved it every minute!. The booking process and communication with the owner was straight forward throughout. The luxuries and location of the Yoo building were better than described. especially the gym and the swimming pool. The views of the Panama Canal and the city’s skyline from the condo are amazing. Apartment very clean and well furnished.

I travel regularly to Panama and this is by far the best apartment I have stayed in. The condo is spacious and very well equipped and the views and building amenities better than described by the owner. I'll definitely book it again for my next trip.
