Finding a Hotel

by tampa_shawn about Various

This is a continuation of my previous hotel tip.

Before visiting Caracas I did a pretty extensive search for hotels trying to find the best hotel based on price, location and safety. Unfortunately many of the "winners" didn't respond to my email or were booked so I had to keep on searching (which is good for you). I've also included some reviews and warnings I found on some of the cheaper hotels. Just remember all of this info came from others...its just my collection of their advice.

All of the following hotels were recommended by someone in VT, Lonely Planet, Trip Advisor….etc. I obviously haven't stayed at these hotels. Address groupings are very loose....

Three Districts/Areas to Consider

Sabana Grande - which is in the center of the city (midtown or new downtown) & rates range from $100 to $400+++. You will be able to find bargain hotels here

Plaza Catedral Hotel Address: Plaza bolívar, The center , Caracas 1010, Venezuela – great location, church bell next door rings every 15 minutes (get interior room) Telephone: 0212 564 2111 Email:

Nuestro Hotel (Hostel) Address: Calle el colegio cnr av casanova, Sabana grande , Caracas , Venezuela - Backpacker hotel in sex district, (federal district) unsafe @night – great place to meet other travelers – Very helpful staff, laundry service, luggage storage and airport pickup by their knowledgeable English-speaking driver, Sr Ferrer. * Telephone: 0212 761 5431 * Email:

Hotel La Mirage (Hotel) * Neighbourhood: Sabana Grand - seedy area but one of the few hotels that does not rent by the hour. safe cheap, Telephone: 0212 793 2733

Hotel Ritz (Hotel)Address: Av las palmas, cnr av libertador, Sabana grande , Caracas , Venezuela Telephone: 0212 793 7811

Posada del Hidalgo (Hotel) Address: Av la playa, urbanización alamo, Macuto , Caracas , Venezuela
Located in Macuto, a 20min ride from the airport, this is one of the better deals along the Litoral Central, as the stretch of coast over the mountains from Caracas is known. Fronted by a locally popular tasca (Spanish tavern), it's a well-run ship with a personable crew. Telephone: 212 414 8460

Hotel Cristal (Hotel) - Telephone: 0212 761 9131 - Address: Blvd de sabana grande, pasaje asunción, Sabana grande , Caracas , Venezuela - Right on the boulevard, this isn't the classiest place but it has lots of spacious, serviceable rooms, some with blue balconies overlooking (and hearing) the activity below. The entrance is on a pedestrian passage that is fondly referred to as La Puñalada (The Stab), with a string of gay-oriented tascas (Spanish-style bar-restaurants).

hotel la floresta – clean basic, hot water, close to subway – good location – hotel staff not helpful - 255 bolivars $55 – reports of LOCKED luggage and $ being stolen from the rooms. Telephone: 212 263 1955. Email: Website:

The Backpackers Hostel, Caracas – federal district -The cheapest backpackers place located near the most popular shopping area of Caracas city. Great for meeting other travelers. No dormitories available. No kitchen. No B&B Price From: US$ 16 per double room. ! Area located is VERY unsafe at night, rents rooms by the hour, no hot water. Does have 24 hours pick up service. No website.

Chacao – which is the safe upscale area (all the locals I talked to recommend staying in this district). Hotels here are more expensive but every local I talked to recommend that I stay in this area (it’s the safest).

Hotel Campo Alegre in Chacao Teléfono:(212) 2653946 (212) 2653947 (212) 2658028 Dirección:2da. Av. Campo Alegre c/c Páez Chacao, Miranda

Altamira Suites – can book through trip advisor –$95 – recommended by many including lonely planet. Single 44 ; Doble o matrimonial $ 51 ; Triple $ 58 ; Cuadruple $ 64

Hotel Gabiral - Teléfono: (212) 7816908 (212) 7931156 (212) 7930956 Dirección: Prolong. Av. Las Acacias, calle Los Hoteles Sabana Grande, Distrito Capital

Hotel Altamira $42 to $80 night – review score 62%. , Av Jose Felix Sosa, Altamira Sur (near Britanica Tower), ☎ +58 (212) 267-4284, 267-4255 ( (email does not work), fax: (58-212) 267-1926).

Hostel online booking

Greetings everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows a hotel/hostel in Altamira area with prices of $30-$40 per night for 2 persons and has an online reservation system or least of all email address that someone answers to reservation requests?



RE: Hostel online booking

by Ronaldo_im

Hi there, Hotel Altamira is a good hotel in Altamira, Caracas. The rooms are nice and you'll pay $34 for 2 persons a night(last time I was there). You can book online, look at google en type Hotel Altamira, you'll vind some internet adresses for reservations. Mucho suerte, saludos


RE: Hostel online booking

by bellochoroni

Altamira is a good area but the hotels cost from $50-80 per night.
I rent a room 20 minutes from Altamira for $50 B&B in a good safe area near el hatillo,a pretty place.
If you are interested I take reservations this way and will send you more information upon request.
Anyway, the hotels in Altamira of that price don´t have online reservation but if you want to compare the phone numbers are:
Hotel Montserrat ++58-212-2633533
Hotel El Cid ++58-212-2632611

Good luck

Thank you all for useful information. I was thinking of Hotel Altamira as well, becuase quite a few people recommended it. I have another question if I may - is that hotel quite full during the vacations? I'll be there on 26th of July and I want your opinion if booking is needed or there are always few rooms free?

Thank you once again and take care,

19th to 22nd June

I'm going to be in caracas on these dates. I'm quite keen to stay in Altamira as it's meant to be the safest area, but hotels don't do single rooms or prices. Anyone interested in splitting a room in the Hotel Altamira? It would be about £13 per person. Or does anyone know of any cheap places to stay (and safe!!)?
