We stayed here for 3 nights, as the tour group we were traveling with was in charge of bookings. This is the only reason we ended up here. ALL 3 nights we heard gunshots, which came from right outside our hotel. This was both in the afternoon, night, and in the middle of the night while sleeping. Needless to say,... More

While this hotel was better than my first in Caracas, it was typical of a budget hotel (the price in USD depended on the exchange rate you received on exchanging your money..official or black market).

This hotel is way, way overpriced considering it is in the Sabana Grande - not a safe place to be staying in Caracas. Several people I met in Caracas told me this hotel is one of the "love hotels" used by locals for sexual interludes. For the $40-$50 price range there are much better buys in much safer places. This... More
