I chose Hotel Alex because I wanted a hotel as near Caracas Airport as possible. But it is actually about 50 minutes away by taxi and the fare is around 500 Bolivares ($80 at the current official rate, $12.50 at current black market rate - at time of travel). The hotel is at a fair price from what you get... More

As noted by several other reviewers, this hotel is a good bargain when compared to other four star hotels in Caracas. The hotel is extremely new, and this works for and against it. The rooms and the entire place are very clean. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the Internet service was super fast. The cons: being new, there was... More

This is a very nice, luxurious hotel, located near various forms of transportation. It is not the best zone to stay in but it's not bad at all. Breakfast is included and my family and friends agree that breakfast is great, it includes a variety of dishes for conventional eaters and those who would like to try a typical Venezuelan... More

The hotel is located down town in an area called La Candelaria, which holds the reputation of being an unsafe area. I was advised to... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife for one night before taking an early international flight from Maiquetía Airport. The hotel is located in La Candelaria neighborhood, near subway stations and city downtown. Location is quite loud and crowded, but at least at nights, rooms are very quiet. Location is not the safest, but is far from being the... More

I have stayed at several hotels in venezuela. This hotel is brand new and it shows. The other main difference is that the staff is very friendly. The culture of Venezuelans is not to cater to others, eaven if its their job. But at this hotel it was the difference. Most Venezuelans will tell you that the location is not... More
