Hotel Description

It’s strange, perhaps, to call Panama City’s Casco Antiguo up-and-coming — its compact maze of narrow streets and public squares were laid out some four hundred years ago, and even then it had a lot of history behind it. Yet there’s no denying that times are changing in the Old City, with stylish, unabashedly arty hotels like Casa Nuratti as welcome a harbinger as any of the neighborhood’s increasingly bright future. What was once a neglected, decaying corner of town is once again becoming central to the cultural life of Panama City, and Casa Nuratti puts you right in the heart of it.

The preponderance of white in the hotel’s fourteen minimalist rooms comes as a surprise in a city saturated with color, let alone in the searingly vibrant old town, and it works as a balm to the eye. That’s not to say the place lacks character, by any means. Throughout the hotel, works by local artists skew contemporary and bold. Casco Antiguo is crazy for graffiti, and the hotel is no exception. A tribute to the French artist Blek Le Rat, who pioneered stencil graffiti in the Eighties, sets the tone.

Another local specialty: the rooftop bar. If those words, “rooftop bar,” tend to be a good omen pretty much anywhere, they’re even more so here, where balmy nights and sea breezes meet views of narrow pedestrian-filled streets, centuries-old church steeples and modern skyscrapers in the distance. Though the picturesque, eminently walkable neighborhood has plenty to offer by day, most of the action seems to take place after hours; the nightlife here is thriving — so much so that, if you’d rather get a quiet night’s sleep than take part in the late-night party, you may want to look elsewhere. Gatto Negro is the mediterranean fusion restaurant, while Gatto Blanco is the rooftop cocktail bar, featuring live music and deep house DJ sets at night — and in this town, there’s more reason every year to venture out and explore.

Please note: Most nights, music from the neighboring rooftop bar is audible in the guest rooms at Casa Nuratti.
