#7 of 32 B&Bs / Inns in Boquete
Tranquilize yourself in the serenity and the breathtaking beauty of the scenic mountain landscapes, rivers and waterfalls. Boquete is the perfect place for adventure, nature and relaxation. The region is sometimes called “Little Switzerland” because of the Alpine-style houses and the influence of Swiss and Yugoslav settlers. The cool, crisp air is a nice change from the everyday city life. Overlooking the lush green South-eastern valleys, situated in the heart of nature, Hotel Central Boquete brings you a tiny piece of heaven on earth. Built on an earlier existing home of the famous music composer Chalo Brenes, known for his piano lessons to many local residents as well as his famous, and long running musical “La Cucaracha”, this building has rendered services to guests from all over the world for many years. Now renovated and with a complete face-lift, Hotel Central Boquete is set to offer more than ever, with a blend of ancient architecture and modern class facilities. This hotel is situated in the east of Nat. Park, Volcano Baru and south of the Amistad,(friendship), International Peace Park. Boquete is also a border town to the over a Million strong Nöbe/ Bugle Tribe’s newly formed homeland. It is called a Comarca, with more independence than a normal Indian Reservation in the USA. Overlooking the South-eastern valley, this property brings you closer to nature than ever. With multiple suites and rooms, the hotel offers many personalized features to its guests. The full buffet breakfast is available from 8 to 10 am and our famous "Super Oatmeal" with Walnuts, Almonds, Dried Blueberries, Prunes, and the delicious sweet butter from Denmark and American Style flavored Oatmeal sis available from 7 to 10am. It is included free of charge when your reservation includes breakfast! Whether you are looking for a relaxing break, romantic gateway or an adventurous trip, the hotel facilitates all your desires under one roof ranging from large hammocks under the big shade tree on the back terrace and an open air Jacuzzi, (available 24/7), to many organized outdoor adventures and tours. Beautiful morning sunlight, chirping of the birds and an astounding view of the valley, one can certainly be mesmerized but wait! That’s not all… Make your mornings fresher than ever with aromatic scent of our coffee shop, Café Central, as Boquete is well known for its coffee and judged to be among the finest in the world. Have a sit and relax. Try a piece of our delicious pie! Café Central opens at 7:00 am, the earliest coffee shop around, plus we have drive thru service. Closes at 10:30 pm. .

We've visited the Hotel Central a few times this week... We keep going back for coffee, cappuccinos, and meals. Timothy, the owner, is so very helpful with questions we have about Panama and Boquete, and a super nice guy. Don't hesitate to go to his coffee shop! The hotel is beautiful too...

We stayed here for 11 days and had a wonderful time. The hotel itself is clean and pleasant. They serve a wonderful breakfast every morning ( make sure you sign up for the breakfast plan, it’s well worth it). Tim and his staff are incredibly accommodating and friendly. We felt like a part of the family. Tim is very knowledgeable about the area and will answer any questions you have. We heard him say multiple times, “How can I make your day better today?” It was a good value and we enjoyed our stay tremendously.

This was a great place to stay for us and our 3 year old son. The staff were so friendly and made a real fuss of our son so he loved it too. Great to have a lovely garden for him to run about in and our room was bright, clean and airy. Breakfast was really lovely, and great to eat outside on the terrace. All the staff were really helpful with advice on how to get to some walks that we wanted to do (Pipeline Trail and Sendoros Los Quetzales). They also helped organise our transfer to Bocas del Toro.

Hotel Central Boquete is a family run hotel that goes out of their way to make the guest feel at home and assist with any tours or questions regarding the area. I HIGHLY recommend staying there if you need a hotel or temporary place to stay in Boquete.

We stayed here for a week and happy we did so. Tim Zellmer keeps the place extremely clean and organized. The hotel is located at the north end of Boquete but very close to some excellent restaurants. All of Boquete is within easy walking distance from the hotel. We hired Tim’s son, Luis, to drive us the hot springs, the caldera waterfalls and the caldera mini canyon. All excellent stops to visit. Luis did a great job driving! The breakfasts here are tasty and Tim serves outstanding coffee. Laundry services are available with a very quick turnaround time. Tim is super host and full of very useful information. We highly recommend the hotel central. Ps-we had a rainbow and sometimes a double rainbow outside our window every day.
