Casa Miller (Miller’s House) was for many years a landmark of Panama City, located in Calidonia, specifically on Central Avenue, for many years was the home of Afro Caribbean workers of the Panama Canal. The old wood house was demolished years ago, a new cement building was erected and now is the luxurious Casa Miller Hotel.
The three story building has an imposing “retro-futuristic” style combined with “avant-garde hip hotel” and was designed by Victor Politis, a world renowned artist, who decorated the homes in Las Vegas, Nevada of stars like Céline Dion, Juan Gabriel, Madonna to mention a few. A $2 million dollar investment was put into the Casa Miller House hotel, the result is a boutique hotel with U.S. quality standards, great finishes, which offers accommodation at reasonable prices.
The 66 rooms of the hotel are decorated in an avant-garde style with kitchenette (fridge, microwave oven, coffee maker, stove and mini bar) high speed Wi-Fi, Smart TV with Netflix and other applications, a bar restaurant and an event rooms with a capacity for 500 people.
It also has a two floor Presidential Suite, with bar, kitchenette, Jacuzzi and two walk in closets. The suite is ideal for family gathering or special occasions and other luxury suites.
The Casa Miller was home of 800 people at one point. It was a three story wood house commissioned by Carlos Müeller and built in 1910 by the Colombian Joaquín Rodriguez Londoño. At one point the ground floor was used as a women detention facility.
The Casa Miller Hotel CEO, Victor Politis said that one of the reasons that attracted him to the property was its long history and he managed to convince his other partners. “The building was abandoned, but it is a historical site of great value. It is a diamond of Panama.”
The hotel is located next to the 5 de Mayo Metro Station and at one side of the Marañon bus station. It is very close to Albrook Mall, Casco Antiguo, Albrook Mall and the Coastal Strip, which is the perfect place to explore the capital city.
