    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.

    In the meantime we meet a German couple who are stranded as well. We decided to share a taxi and go to Hotel Santiago together. There we find a nice atmosphere, a friendly guy at the desk and a clean room. Time for some sleep, since this has been a tiresome and long day!

    The next day is relaxing. And getting information about our surroundings. We find out that in Venezuela there is a really low exchange rate, set by the government. And a florishing ...

    ... a while) and headed down to the bus station to get my ticket. Puero La Cruz is a horrible place, very run down and smells disgusting. Suprisingly it is a popular holiday destination despite the oil distillery and the polluted sea. Litter is a real problem here in Venezuela which i just can't abide....grrrrrrr.

    The bus from Puerto la Cruz to Boa Vista (just across the Brazil border) was amazing....very comfortable, with fully reclining seats and super strong air ...
