      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 …

      ... find they are as friendly and warm as in other south american countries

      Eventually we dropped Carla off at her hotel to meet her family and she gave me her contact details in case I needed any help and her father offered to sort out getting me a cheap deal at the hotel they were staying at which was only $40 a night in a 5 star hotel! Frustratingly I'd booked somewhere already and although it's lovely it's a lot more than $40 a night. ...

      ... way. What a lovely guy.

      I can quite see why the hotel had a room available....shithole doesn't even begin to describe it. It was located on the seafront....fittingly enough the road was called the Paseo de colon...this whole place is like something that has passed through many colons. My room was basically a windowless cell in the bowels of the building. There was an overwhelming smell of fish and something else revolting that i couldn't quite place. The room was ...

      ... station at 5 where we had a 3 hour wait to get onto a bus to Ciudad Bolivar.... Very glad that we got to see Caracas but even happier to get the **** out!! The bus station is chaos but thanks to some great help from the people at Osprey we get in, are checked in by their rep and have great seats on the Bus... At the station there are 500 people sitting in chairs watching 4 weddings and a funeral with no volume in the dark !! Wierd !! BUSES in Venezuela: ...
