This is WORST Hotel I ever been in! It is indeed locaded in a very nice and pleaseant neighborhood (Altamira) where you can walk without any problems to restaurantes and bars close by and in Caracas this is not an easy task as it it one of the most dangerous cities in the world. This nice area doesn't tell you... More

Despite the very good location at Altamira neighborhood this building cannot be called a Hotel. It's very old and there's no maintenance at all. I was there with some work collegues and all the rooms were awful, dirty and old. The breakfast is very simple with some bread, ham, cheese and 2 options of fruits. Some of the lights work... More

We made a reservation to check in after flight, around 6 a.m. We arrived at the hotel and it was (!?) closed! Yes, like you see in films, with a bar on the door and with lights off. The attendendant was sleeping, he woke up and said that we could come to the rooms only when they were arranged, and... More

...Hotel Continental Altamira was a really good hotel. I will keep this review as brief as possible. PRO's: -Great shower water pressure (you will need to massage your aching muscles from sleeping on the torture rack that is in the bedroom). -Great cross ventilation (The A/C performance is unreliable). -Location. Close to the Altamira Metro Station and good restaurants. CON's:... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the Italian restaurant you will find across the street. The rooms are run down and dirty. No internet at the rooms and the lobby wifi work sometimes... The rate was raised to the double on April to about $200 if you pay with credit card or the official exchange. Don’t bother and... More

The room was moldy with bad smell. The water in the sink hardly drained. The room had mosquitos that bit me through clothes. The balcony door did not lock or close all the way. One towel for two people. Had to ask five times for additional towels. Internet is only at the lobby which is full of mosquitos. Make sure... More

What does $175 a night get you? Mold on the ceiling, balcony doors that may or may not lock, a dirty bed, and 3 pieces of white bread toast for the included continental breakfast. Oh, and a little bit of theft. I had books stolen from my room, but was luckier than the man next door, who had a watch... More
