    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.

    Once more into the breach

    ... now shouldn't it?

    Well it would have been at that high price but we then gained a further passenger in the shape of Carla a young Venezuelan girl who lives in the US and then another Venezuelan guy called Maurice who lives in Barcelona. If nothing else having a couple of Venezuelans sharing the ride reassured me that it was a legit taxi.

    So as we are about to depart the taxi driver asks me how much I agreed to pay which I told him. ...

    ... was suspicious as ever but again felt that under the circumstances I had little choice and I had no choice but to just trust the guy. I felt better that there would be 3 other passengers in the car too and they were all locals.

    And here begins the most frightening journey of my life.....
    The driver was a little weasle like venezualen guy who spoke quite good English as his Grandfather was from Manchester (what a great combination Manc and Venezuelan).
