I am an American who moved here to Panama 3 years ago and have been enjoying everything this country has to offer since day one. I love to travel and experience new cultures, people, and landscapes. I have two young children 2 years old and 5 months old, lately they have been occupying most of my free time. I am still new to the area and my fresh look may be able assist you with planning your next adventure to Panama

Matthew Marx purchased this studio in 2011

This property is in the middle of it all. The apartment is walking distance to night life, casinos, restaurants, and many other options that will help keep you busy.

Most of Panama's historical areas (ie Panama Canal, Casco Viejo, Old City Ruins) are still less than a 10 minute car ride from the apartment.

DON'T BELIEVE FALSE REVIEWS

Don't believe false reviews
  • 1 of 5
I had booked a room based on the reviews from many "other" booking websites. Turns out negative reviews were removed making this garbage hotel look good on paper. Don't believe them! The only positive thing about this hotel is location, everything else is a nightmare.
* Dirty! The floors are swiped only and not washed.
* No windows! No, this is not a typo, there are little glass strips that cover holes in the walls but it's like sleeping out on the street.
* AC either blows turbo or not at all.
* Kitchen??? This one was definitely a kick in the face. Imagine a hotel room with wardrobe built in the wall with electric stove an microwave with NOTHING to cook on!
If you ever read a reply from the owners on this dump, DO NOT BELIEVE them. I will keep posting this review in hopes that at least 1 honest website will keep it up and will not remove it.

Owner's Response: Although I find it suspicious that you are writing this review the same day that PayPal ruled in our favor, I will do my best to address your concerns.

We have never had a review like this on VRBO or any other traveler website. Although it is true that we have units with out windows (interior rooms, much like a cruise ship) your family was placed in a large room with a standard sliding window.
Every unit has a kitchen with an electric stove, microwave, coffee maker and mini-fridge. Upon check in all guest are notified that we keep all pots & pans in the front desk area. The reason for doing this is so we can properly sanitize all cookware before the arrival of the next guest.
I apologize if you feel the floors were not cleaned to your standard, but let me assure you that the floors are swept and mopped everyday. The hallways are swept and mopped multiple times a day.
Again, I apologize if there was any problem with the A/C. I have had an A/C technician look into the problem and assure you that this has been taken care of.
As always all guest who book through VRBO have my personal email address and phone numbers. I hope I have addressed all of your concerns and I encourage you to contact me personally if I may be of any assistance in the future.

Thank you and warmest regards,
Matthew Marx

STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
We have business in Panama so we need to stay in the financial district. This place is perfect. Within walking distance to everything. Now is not a good time to travel by car unless by taxi. Lots of construction. Eat at Costa Azul just down the street for typical fare that's very reasonable.

Owner's Response: Hello Lianne and thank you for your kind words. It is true that construction is a bit of a bear in and around the city, but testing has begun on the new metro subway system so fingers crossed we have a light at the end of the tunnel (no pun intended).
We hope to see you soon!

GOOD LOCATION,NICE ROOM... A COUPLE OF SUGGESTIONS THOUGH

  • 4 of 5
Overall, a nice place to stay. Clean, decent sized room. It can get noisy beginning so close to the ‘horn-honking’ zone at Via Espana.Also, the Wi-Fi was weak at times, and the so-called business center did not have a single computer that worked. I actually had to go to an internet café one night. Rather spartan too…… owner could at least have one or two cheap pots or pans there. Why offer efficiency with a stove and sink, and not a single cooking object? Any other efficiency I have stayed at always had at least a flimsy set of pots and pans. I roll of paper towels would have been nice. Also, I recommend the owner install a small handle on the wall of the shower unit, in case anyone should slip on the tiles .

Owner's Response: Hello John,

Thank you for your review I will look into installing a handle in the shower in the event of a slip and fall. Regarding the pots and pans. I apologize if the message was not relayed to you, we remove the pots and pans when the previous guest checks out so they can be sanitized properly. In the event that a guest would like to cook they simply ask and a full set of pots and pans are returned to the unit.

We are looking forward to your return to Panama.

Thank You,

Matthew Marx

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in Panama City late enough to make it difficult to follow the owner's driving instructions. Nonetheless, we did the best we could until we were just too lost to recover. We stopped for help twice. Finally, a lovely waitress allowed us to use her phone to call Matt. He saved us by driving to our side and guiding us back to the condo. The apartment was small but adequate. The space is well used. And the location is perfect, in the middle of everything. For now, construction permeates the area, making it difficult to navigate by car. Consider not renting a vehicle unless you plan to leave the city area immediately.

WE LOVED OUR STAY AT PANAMA STUDIO APARTMENTS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed more than 3 weeks in a studio at Panama Studio Apartments and we enjoyed our stay in every way. The price was very reasonable for what we got. The beds were clean and comfortable, there was a practical desk, a flat screen TV, a nice table, a kitchenette with a microwave, refrigerator, induction stove, cooking utensils, dishes, flatware, shelves and cabinets for the storage of food. The bathroom was modern with great design. Free wireless high-speed internet was provided. The Panama Studio Apartments are also located in a perfect spot, restaurants, grocery stores, and many other stores were just minutes away and we were able to reach everything we needed by foot. On top of it all, the staff was efficient, helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome and at home. We will come back and recommend it highly. Many thanks to Matt and his staff!

BEST BEDS IN PANAMA

  • 5 of 5
Matt was extreamly helpful and his place lived up to the photos and then some. The beds were AWESOME! We arrived late on New Year's eve with some baggage issues. The driver, Roy, that Matt had arranged ,was there and smiling when we came through customs. Roy also picked us up the following morning to take us to Gorgona. Very good driver, spoke fluent english. We watched some of the best fireworks we had ever seen from the window of the room. Matt took great care of us! His unit definately meets North American standards in both comfort and cleanliness. The continental breakfast with fresh fruit was an bonus. We highly recommend this unit and will book it again when we stay in the city.

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for your kind words Kelly. I couldn't be any happier to hear how satisfied you were with the unit and with Roy, I will be sure to pass the word to him.

I am sorry I missed you guys this trip, but next time you are in town we will definatly be getting together for dinner.
