Ridiculous meal prices

The hotel is luxurious and the facilities comfortable. It was also half a block from the new El Recreo shopping center (which has numerous, excellent, and inexpensive restaurants, multiple shops, several movie theaters, and a money exchange center) and two blocks away from the Sabana Grande metro station. The bathroom had a jacuzzi, which was a big plus. The only thing that would have made the room perfect would have been a coffeemaker, which is something other less luxurious hotels have. Also, the staff was overworked or limited. My room was consistently cleaned around 4:30 PM every day. I also waited a good hour before the bellboy brought my luggage. No bellboy was available when I left the hotel. All were friendly, though.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel dinner buffet was outrageously expensive ($75.00 for one person) and not necessarily excellent. However, across the street, there is a good breakfast place where one can have a Venezuelan breakfast (with beef, ham, beans, cheese, and a corn-dough bread called arepa) for a mere $5.00. There are also multiple restaurants, coffee and pastry shops nearby.

Good Hotel but Expensive

Ok, clean and confortable, expensive for what it is. The only reason I took it was because it is close to everything.
