    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.

    Carla then explains the the 300 bolivares I got back are for the taxi driver for my part of the ride. Fine by me!

    So just now calculating this all out I somehow ended up not actually losing any money

    80 US dollars is about 53 pounds

    15 US dollars I got back is 10 pounds

    300 Bolivares on the official exchange rate of 1 pound = almost 6 Bolivares is 50 pounds

    So I gave 53 but somehow ended up ...

Despite the driving and when my eyes were open I could appreiate that the countryside was very beautiful with lots of mountains and woodland.

    Our driver was actually a really nice guy and turned out to be my third guardian angel of the day. He offered to come into the bus station with me to ...

    ... specialist travel agent to arrange our next moves from here. Caracas lives up to its reputation in looks, the places is a buzzing, dirty, 3rd world dive. As we drive through an alternative route as the main freeway is congested one can see that this place is like downtown Hilbrow in Johannesburg (Not a place to go on your own) Anyway, after an hour or so we end up in one of the nicer sides of town where we meet up with the good folk from Osprey Tours (Thomas, ...
