The building itself is quite lovely--a beautiful courtyard. My room was fair. The shower pressure was rather poor though. When I arrived, it appeared to be just one young male working there who couldn't speak English (I don't speak Spanish). I went across the street to buy something to drink. When I returned, I found the young guy in my... More

Hello Liz, I am very sorry, that you had such a bad experience here at our place. The entire week we had no internet at the guest house and the whole historic quarter due to a problem of the internet provider with torrential rainfalls. I hope that you will forgive us for making you feel uncomfortable at the hostel. Security... More

Beautiful colonial house with high ceilings and big windows, and lovely antique furniture. You feel like you are stepping back in time when you walk in. Ciudad Bolivar is a pretty town, with colourful buildings and cobbled streets. We had dinner across the road for $3 each which was delicious and breakfast at the hostel for $2.5 each. It included...

My partner and I stayed here for three nights and although the place itself is lovely. The staff, in particular the manager is terrible!! Everything from yelling at guests and other staff to not giving accurate information to trying to rip guests off and over charge for rooms to trying to scam money out of them with really bad money...

I stayed in the posada for a few night before I went to the amazing Roraima trek and I can say that I really felt comfortable. It is a very beautiful posada, the people are nice and you really have a chance to relax. There had been several bus troubles due to demonstrations in the streets when I wanted to... More

I stayed at Posada don Carlos a few days, several times, in March this year, as it is a good place close to many nearby attractions. What I must say, is that the manager Martin is a wonderful host, full of incredible patience, able and willing to help you in any way possible to make your trip a great one.... More

Martin could not have been more helpful before our trip to Venezuela and during our stay at Don Carlos. He helped us with flights and cars across the country and sorted our Canaima trip. It is a beautiful building, full of antiques (and cats and dogs) and all the staff are very friendly. There are lots of places to hang... More

The posada is in a lovely and historic building. What is best about the place are Martin and his family who own Don Carlos. They are a wealth of knowledge and have many travel tips. I stayed in room 2 and I loved it. Big, comfortable and air-conditioned. To add a bit of quaintness, two policemen and a shoeshine seem... More

From the moment I emailed Martin to ask about coming to Ciudad Bolivar, getting to Angel Falls and Venezuela - I knew this was going to be a great place to stay! Martin is originally from Germany but with 20 years in Venezuela he is for sure Venazolano! I can't explain how much of a complex but amazing country Venezuela... More

So I stayed here while I was sorting a trip to Angel falls. The posada is beautiful its large open and pleasant. The people that let me in were Spanish, didn't speak any English but we sorted it and they got me into a room and were very helpful. The room was clean, all was good (The only reason this... More
