    Pretty much the only good thing about this place is its location in Altamira. The hotel itself is old. The room we got had old-school slanting window panes which do not fully close properly. As a result, you can hear noise from the street, even up on the 9th floor. Room TV is small, but there are many channels (mostly Spanish) with cable TV. Location wise is great, just south of Altamira subway which is considered a safer area in Caracas (relative to other areas, but we still made sure to stick indoors at night). Within walking distance, there is a supermarket about 3 blocks west and the terminal for Expresos Ejecutivos, a premium bus company which services other cities in Venezuela. It is more expensive, but definitely nicer buses and safer. Their operations is like an airline, with proper checked baggage counters and ticket confirmations. From my experience, we found other passengers who appear more affluent and able to speak some English.

    We were on the tenth (top) floor 108, no real view, 2 smallish rooms one double one single, tired but clean. Free slow WIFI in the room. Friendly english speaking reception. Bathroom has hot water. Aircon and TV. Located in a safe part of the city, no problems walking around during the day. Friendly staff in shopping area. Restaurant near hotel has an english speaking cashier.

    This one will be short and sweet. We had two nights and one full day in Caracas, one of the political hotspots in Venezuela right now. In fact, only 200m up the road from our hotel was one of the primary protesting spots. We arrived into Caracas Sunday afternoon around 17:30, seeing riot police on just about every corner in the hotel and restaurant …

    ... surrounding it, but I was somewhat disappointed to find out that the world's longest cable car, the Teleferico, was still broken as of this writing. I did walk to the base of it and watched the engineers testing a car but was told it is still closed to the public. The cable car, however, was not Merida's only superlative, there is also a Guiness book of world records ice cream shop that supposedly has somewhere in the vicinity of 900 flavors. They probably had about 300 on ...

    ... and took us a while to work out, was that the streets seem deserted, except for the occasional crowd of young men drinking beer. Then it hit us, there are no cars parked on the streets, they are all parked behind gates and bars. In the centre of town it's different, people park up there but not in the side streets. Security seems to be uppermost in everybody's minds, there are armed guards in all shops and restaurants, and many places ...

    ... not to leave the hostel after dark, and warned of police corruption. Not exactly shrewed business people! 02/06/2008 - T Up early to do some chores and track down some english books (of a questionable standard) and decided to get straight out and head for Columbia. Traffic was a nightmare but got to the big bus station an hour before our bus left. Only trouble was it was full, so using my new Spannish skills I found a ...
