Located in the center of everything this cutie is a boutique hotel. With reasonable prices. All the hotel is decorated in a modern style. Modern, clean, and spacious rooms with very friendly staff. Good food.

The only safe place in Caracas is Altamira and the hotel options there are so full of scams. This place is pretty, new looking and comfortable. The best price-quality option I've seen. The bed is the best part of the room, big and nice, the balcony is just an unfinished extension of the room, not awesome view or something like it. The bathroom is just ok, like the balcony seems to be unfinished but nothing to pay to much attention.
The breakfast was a mixture of some good things with some not so good, so it is just ok.

All dirty and moldy bathroom. The bathroom floor looks like never been clean. The carpets were all dirty. Soiled towels and rough. The welcome fruit platter was rotten. The air conditioner noisy and didn't work well. At least the personnel attention was good.

i had just a night in the hotel in caracas. The hotel is located in Altamira district and we were able to go walking also in the night in the streets close to the hotel ( also 20 minute walking far from) with no worries and problem at all. Near there are also more restaurant and bar very nice and safe. The hotel room is very large with all conforts and the staff are also able to speak english and also very kind. The breakfast was the best all over the 2 weeks vacation with local and international foods). Great experience

The hotel is well located. There is only a 5 minute walk to the Metro station Altamira. The reception staff speaks English. All the staff were friendly and helping. The room has a good size. All rooms have a balcony. From my balcony I could see part of the city and partly mountains. Shower cabin is quite large, you can actually be two in it. The bed is absolutely fantastic. There is a good internet connection in the room. At night there is pretty quiet. Breakfast is classic Venezuelan cuisine, it is good and plentiful. There is also a restaurant, the food is good but the supply is quite limited. It obviously has to do with the general situation in the country to do. There is a shortage of many things in the country also food. Generally, caracas has a very high price level of all things, probably because of the very high inflation
I was with my stay completely satisfied, I have only a minus. The carpet in the room is vacuum cleaned but it's pretty dirty. I was barefoot on the carpet and my feet quickly became black. .

The VIP is located in one of the safest neighborhoods in Caracas. Nearby some nice restaurants, you can walk for 10min during daytime without any problem.
Rooms in the hotel are big and comfortable – my room had a special balcony with a bed and chairs, very nice for a night drink. Internet works well, breakfast is enough (although with some problems in due to Caracas short of supplies…) and the restaurant is very good (although menu is short). Moreover, the area for restaurant+breakfast has an open area, very nice and comfortable. Besides this, there is a lounge area open from 18:00 to 24:00 (I think) where you can listen to some music, drink and eat some nice snacks.
Personnel is very nice, although I saw some problems with non-spanish speaking customers… Things to improve? Menu in restaurant, amenities in bathroom and the towels.
Overall: very good hotel, definitively a must stay in Caracas.

Room Tip: One with big balcony (more expensive, tough...)

Before I reserved this hotel I read other reviews that said the staff were unhelpful and that no one spoke English. This is just not true. There were at least 3 staff on reception who spoke good English and everyone in the hotel was very helpful to two travellers who were visiting a city with a terrible reputation.
The hotel is quite a small property but the rooms are a decent size, the internet connection was excellent, the service was good and it has a great restaurant next door. The meal in the hotel was one of the best we had in the city. The location is safe, probably safe enough to wander around at night provided you don't go too far.
The city itself seems safe to a degree. Stick to the upmarket areas and dress to look like a local not a tourist. We were told not to walk at night in some areas though...
