We started off a Venezuelan escorted tour by spending two nights in the Hotel Avila, Caracas. We arrived late afternoon after a long flight with a several hour stopover in Madrid airport. Caracas is a huge city set in a valley surrounded by hills. Shanty towns climb up the slopes, with shacks literally built one on top of the other....

Beautiful, comfortable rooms. Although Caracas gets hot, you can keep screen doors open for cross ventilation. We rarely used the ceiling fan. Amazing breakfast buffet. Safe location not far from downtown (accessible by a short bus or taxi ride). An oasis in the chaos of Caracas. Our only complaint was that we had asked the hotel to arrange for a...

For those reading this that are contemplating a trip to Caracas for pleasure, I can save you a lot of time and money. Just go to the nearest big city to you, sit on the curb in the middle of rush hour traffic whilst banging your head with your shoe. I have driven in places like Rome,Paris, Singapore, Hong Kong,...

My nephew, myself and a friend of mine from Caracas stayed at the Hotel Avila for two nights. It is one of several lovely Caribbean area hotels built by Nelson Rockefeller. It is located in the shaded neighborhood of San Bernardino between downtown and the base of Paque Nacional El Avila. The manned and secure hotel grounds have lush vegetation,...

Nelson Rockefeller built this hotel in the 1920s and it still has an old world feel to it. It's set in acres of quite gardens and has a pool. Some rooms have aircon but mine just had an overhead fan, but this was perfectly fine. Unlike other reviewers, I found the service was fine although I made little demands on...

I have been coming to Caracas for a number of years and this has been my favorite hotel. If you are looking for an american tower cookie cutter hotel then this is not for you. It was built in the 40's has solid concrete walls so you don't hear anything from the room next door. It is set out of...

“If they get more guests & could earn more, they would have the funds to modernize the one time superb hotel - hopefully. But the political stalmate might delays things, perhaps. But hope will die last !!!”

“Check your room thoroughly before you unpack. Make sure all the plumbing, lights and air conditioning work. Some in our group had to change rooms because the plumbing would not drain. One of our lamps did not work. We were short towels.”

“Serendipity: our room on the upper floor above the reception had a balcony view over the garden and tall treetops. But the rooms downstairs had newer fittings and furnishings.”
