Don Carlos is located in the historical town, great location, in a beautiful old house. As you want to visit Ciudad Bolivar it's a fair choise, despite the inconvenience to have a drunk person knocking the door of my room midnight I've enjoyed the area. If you plan to visit Angel Falls I suggest you buy your tour in Puerto... More

Martin is a nice guy and knows the place. He has good contacts and can help with money exchange if needed (this can be super helpful since its basically impossible to get money in Venezuela at the moment if u didnt bring enough dollars with you)

Stayed here in April 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed the place. The boss (a German gentleman with flawless English) made us all very welcome and had many helpful tips for a tourist. He can arrange transfers to the local airport and knows a lot about trips to Angel Falls which is the big thing in this region. The casa itself is... More

Posada Dom Carlos is situated in a nice location in Cuidad Bolivar, near Orinoco river. The city is the gateway to Canaima which is the main attraction. The colonial stile offers a relax and cozy stile. You can stay in the rooms but the hammocks are an affordable alternative.

We decided to use this hostal after several people mentioned it to us. Beautifully restored colonial building located 3 blocks away from the Orinoco. The barrio is super nice - old colonial barrio called angostura. The staff were all very helpful And Martin the owner was very nice too. Especially liked the little duplex rooms and the hammock spaces available.... More

Posada Don Carlos. When we were traveling through Venenezuela, we stopped in that posada (for 3 days). They offer you some home made meals, but its ok just to try them. Don't order them everyday. Stuff is nice, they are prepared to help in any way they can. Their "connection" to go in the Canaima (natural park, where Angel fall... More

Clean, helpful with arranging things. In a beautiful building with nice courtyard. I would say the building itself is probably the main attraction of this city. U might regret it, if u didn't at least visit this place! Sometimes full! So if u wanna be sure, book in advance.

The style of the posada is what first grabs you. A large open courtyard with a bar and TV area to the right and the whole place with a colonial style. Kitchen and rooms to the back that does decent breakfast. Rooms are a good size. I went for fan and shared bathroom double which was good value. Hosts are... More

Me and my wife had a wonderful stay in Posada. That was our first destination point in Venezuela. If you wanna stay in climatic charming place which you wont find in Europe pick that place.
