Reviewed April 6, 2013

Had to stay there on December 2012 and January 2013 for 4 occasions, due to late arrivals and no connections to my my destination or early departure. I had no choice to book, since the Eurobuilding (better choice and nearest to the Airport is always full). The price is way too high for what they offer, the staff at the reception have no education on tourist service whatsoever. The food at the restaurant was expensive, but at least decent. The rooms are ok, clean and comfortable but not to the standard you expect for what you have paid. NO complementary internet even do they charge so high for a room!!. The shuttle service SUCKS!...had to take a taxi everytime.

Compare to the JW Marriot in Caracas that is a GREAT hotel, this one is a not the best choice, but if you cannot get a reservation at the Eurobuilding, there is no more decent and safe choice nearby so you have to get stuck with this one.

I stayed in this hotel with my family and honestly it was great comparing with all other hotels in Venezuela. The food was delicious. Rooms and facilities where excellent. The only problem is that it takes around 10 mins to get there and it could be a bit dangerous

Excellent hotel, easily the best I have stayed at while in Venezuela. I usually stay there before leaving Venezuela and I have, so far, always enjoyed my stay. Good rooms, great food, and excellent service from bilingual staff.

No need to travel to Caracas if you arrive oversees heading to Grand Sabana. Free airport shuttle in theory ( not always worked) : Modern intenational standard hotel close to Caracas Airport. Not a top class neighbourhood. Rooms are modern , mediumsized and clean.Free wifi.
Most of the rooms have partial seaview. 2 munites walk to alimentary shop with sandwich and pizza corner and bakery. Good alternative to hotel pricy restaurant. Free baggage room to leave them for a few days excursion.

We stayed here for one night and it is definitely a good place to stay around the airport. The rooms were clean as was the entire facility. It has a great swimming pool and gym. We were able to leave ours bags while we traveled to Los Roques - they then had a taxi bring the bags to the airport when we came back. It felt safe and compared to the Eurobuilding Express it was nicer - However the eurobuilding express is closer to the airport. Pay in Bolivares and not in $

This hotel is about a 15 minute drive from Caracas airport. It is rather dated for a top name chain, but just about adequate for one night and convenient for the airport. Very slow check in.
Free Wifi in reception area only. We were given the wrong access code at first so had to queue up again to get the correct one!
As we had been quite well fed by Lufthansa on the flight from Frankfurt we were able to avoid using the restaurant which other reviewers have complained of being very expensive. There is a supermarket about 50 meters from the hotel- useful for snacks and water, although I would not want to venture outside the front door after about 8pm as the area doesn't look like it might be too safe.
Unable to comment on the breakfast as we had to leave at 5 am. The overall impression was well below expectations for a top name chain.
