I stayed at this hotel overnight on a recent trip to Caracas. It was my first time at this hotel. It is conveniently located in Altamira neighborhood. The included breakfast was good, nothing spectacular but appropriate for the kind of property. Fast and courteous check in and check out. I stayed in the third floor, a bit noisy at night... More

The hotel room was pretty big and nice, large clean double bed a foot stool, chair and table, and another balcony chair. Carpet a bit worn out. Lots of lighting and convenient electrical outlets. Large LCD TV. Bathroom is a separate area, with cloth closet and drawers, bar fridge and large safe. Shower stall quite large. Bathroom needs a bit... More

It looks like a luxury hotel when you are outside, once you go in, you're going to be disappointed. It's like a cheap boutique hotel, but with HIGH prices. PROS: Breakfast included. The breakfast buffet was tasty and with a lot of options. Location. It's located in a very safe area, with a lot of options to eat around. Parking... More

Located in the center of everything this cutie is a boutique hotel. With reasonable prices. All the hotel is decorated in a modern style. Modern, clean, and spacious rooms with very friendly staff. Good food.

The only safe place in Caracas is Altamira and the hotel options there are so full of scams. This place is pretty, new looking and comfortable. The best price-quality option I've seen. The bed is the best part of the room, big and nice, the balcony is just an unfinished extension of the room, not awesome view or something like... More

All dirty and moldy bathroom. The bathroom floor looks like never been clean. The carpets were all dirty. Soiled towels and rough. The welcome fruit platter was rotten. The air conditioner noisy and didn't work well. At least the personnel attention was good.

The hotel is well located. There is only a 5 minute walk to the Metro station Altamira. The reception staff speaks English. All the staff were friendly and helping. The room has a good size. All rooms have a balcony. From my balcony I could see part of the city and partly mountains. Shower cabin is quite large, you can... More

The VIP is located in one of the safest neighborhoods in Caracas. Nearby some nice restaurants, you can walk for 10min during daytime without any problem. Rooms in the hotel are big and comfortable – my room had a special balcony with a bed and chairs, very nice for a night drink. Internet works well, breakfast is enough (although with... More

Before I reserved this hotel I read other reviews that said the staff were unhelpful and that no one spoke English. This is just not true. There were at least 3 staff on reception who spoke good English and everyone in the hotel was very helpful to two travellers who were visiting a city with a terrible reputation. The hotel... More
