This quaint little hotel in Caracas is very close to the International Airport and offers convenient free shuttle buses to and from. The rooms aren't huge or fancy but they're clean and quiet and the air-conditioning works too well. The restaurant is very good and very affordable. It has the view of the little beach through the giant windows surrounding the dining room. The staff is helpful and attentive and the prices are very good.

So finally we arrive in Caracas, thanks to Lufthansa (and no thanks to Iberia). We were expecting a surge of pocket-pickers, con artists and other unsavoury types, so were relatively disappointed when in fact we just sauntered out of the airport with no trouble at all.
We were collected by a tour agent (not our usual style, but we were totally bricking it about being pasty gringos in the world's most dangerous city) and taken to our hotel, ...
... high mountain range, Cerro El Ávila; to the south there are more hills and mountains.
I met a very nice Venezuelan lady on my flight to Caracas. She explained what local food I should try and that I a visit to the Cerro El Avila is a must..
On the weekend, I followed her recommendation and took the cable car to the top of the mountain. It was worth the trip and on top I could enjoy the view to both sides - the city and the Caribbean Sea. Muchas gracias Maigualida. ...
