      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 …

      ... past all of the barrios (slums) which are built incredibly up the mountain sides. One of them even has its own cable car to get to the top! The beach was very nice, and the sea was just the perfect temperature. I’ve now been in the Caribbean sea, wooohooo!! After that we went to a seafood place right on the sea and had a selection for lunch before joining the mass of traffic back to Caracas for a bit more “hora pica” ...

      ... lights pop up at varying intensities and colour from within trees. The houses in this view are mainly orange and make for an interesting and striking contrast against the deep green of the jungle. It is the now the picture in my head I have when thinking of Venezuela. Often there is cloud below the ranch and these houses making for an isolated mystical type setting. I have been asked to design and prepare a budget for a new concrete road leading into the ...
