More than a hotel it become our home for 1 month and a half. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. I must say that I'm from Maracaibo so familiarity and friendship is part of our culture. The food is excellent and the location is fantastic. Although we arrive during a major refurbishment to the hotel, that was never a...

In general the hotel is fine in terms of installation, but the worker who attend at breakfast restaurant are not well educated and not prepared to attend guests. They are rude to attend guests. We past an uncomfortable situation during our stay, on July 24th the guy in breakfast restaurant ask to my wife in a rude manner that she...

We stayed here after a week in the wilder parts of Colombia, staying in accommodation without electricity, water or any services. So the Kristoff was a breath of fresh air for us. We were a group of 6 Europeans, and were advised not to walk outside the hotel, advice which we followed. I have no idea how dangerous the surrounding...

Hotel Kristoff is centrally located with a professional staff, amenities such as buffet breakfast, pool… and probably the best hotel in Maracaibo. But this hotel is definitely NOT for families and friends. There is something off - one maybe can say "kinky" about this hotel. First, we arrived late at night and there was no one around except for a...

Its not a bad hotel, but for the price id rather stay at the Inter or Maruma. Not really close to any landmarks, excpet perhaps La Chinita Basilica. Pool was closed the month of my stay, perhaps this didnt help.

I highly recommend upgrading to the business suites. We had a great stay - very modern, clean and comfortable. Maracaibo is quite dangerous right now, and as an American I have to be cautious. The Kristoff was great to us. Also, their breakfast features traditional Venezuelan cuisine and amazing cafe con leche. We loved it.
