It is an old historic hotel just below Avila mountain. The reception stuff is super slow and not well connected with the management. We had reservation done but obviously it was hard to find. Rooms are old but the garden is pretty well maintained. They dont prepare breakfast box if you leave early. The guards though are very nice and... More

We stayed here twice as part of a group tour with World Expeditions. Both times we had to leave the hotel very early (between 3-4am) to catch flights so I cannot comment on breakfast. The first visit we had to change rooms because our room wouldn't lock, this was our only real problem. The second visit, the elevators were not... More

This hotel is located on a beautiful beach area which offers both calm and wave filled ocean waters and some snorkeling. The mid price rooms are simple with Formica and plastic furniture, and limited storage space. There was a nice water view from our balcony. The bathroom was modern but only an opaque glass wall separated it from the bedroom... More

I have visited this hotel since 2013 and considering the actual situation for Venezuela we can admire the effort that the hotel management is doing to improve conditions (food taste, furniture and rooms) unfortunately is taking too much time to get acceptable standard. is on track

This is an historic hotel, built in the 1950s, with a decent bar/pool area. It's not magnificent, but it's safe and set away from the central city in a suburban area. My room door lock didn't function, so they had to fix it. All broken parts, construction leftovers, etc., are thrown in the back yard, which was the view from... More

We have stayed in this hotel overnight while travelling on our tour from Canaima National Park to Los Roques National Park. Note: in Venezuela services and hotels are 2 marks lower than same in Europe. I am hiker and don't expect any special conditions from the hotel. I like clean rooms and proper breakfast Breakfast I did not try (it... More

The first time when I arrived here, I was impressed by the 'old-school' look of this hotel. It's a classic and I loved it. Unfortunately, the staff doesn't know how to treat customers, the room service is very poor, and they could organize better their tasks, too. The furniture is old, the meal doesn't taste as it should ( could... More

We stayed for two nights as part of a group tour. to sit down in the garden, you had to wipe the dust off the furniture. Our shower did not work and the folks at the front desk did not seem to care. We only got it fixed after flagging down a maid for an extra towel (there were 3... More

The garden and the views around Avila Hotel make it special. After staying in inner city hotels near the University, the tall trees and leafy surrounds, were a great relief. The mountain parkland is quite close to the hotel and gives a restful air to the place. It has an olde worlde flavour which I do enjoy, a cross between... More

Caracas is expensive and this hotel was not the exception. Facilities are old but preserved in good shape. It's a nice comfortable place to stay BUT, the personnel, OMG the personnel is terrible. Font desk is always busy and moody. If you request some kind of service they throw a mean look at you and they never smile. There was... More
