Great hotel, next to a decent shopping center and close to cultural attractions. We frequently travel to Caracas on the weekends to see the symphony or visit a museum, and the Gran Melia never disappoints.
"Best option in Caracas"
Best comfort/price relationship, great breakfast, very important aspect is that the hotel is placed in a mall, so you can have a walk and dine out w/o really leaving the hotel - this is really important since Caracas is the most dangerous capital city in the entire world; regarding my review, any opinion about hotels in Caracas always must be put in perspective with the current situation of Venezuela, not really a turistic place right now, not just for safety but also for food provisioning and so on.
"Great five Star Hotel, location is not the best unless you work around the area."
The hotel is enormous, great convention centre. Very close to one of the best commercial centres in Caracas called El recreo. This commercial centre has everything you might need. The shops are nice and restaurants are quiet good,
"Great colonial Hotel "
If you are looking for a classical atmosphere then this is the right place to book. The rooms are big and the accommodations are great. The service is smooth and diligent. The breakfast is very good and they even offer local food like arepas etc.The Hotel is placed next to the Mal Recreo and 200 meters from the subway, the cost of the subway is 3 bolívares 0,30 US! Venezuelans will advised you to avoid the subway because of a general impression of thieves looking for victims there but if you don't carry things of value to the sight you will be able to use the subway without any problems.
I stayed for a couple of nights with my family, it is a beautiful Colonial style hotel in the middle of Caracas, it has though seen better years. The food is fantastic, the breakfast abundant and with plenty to choose from. The pool is nice and clean and the service is good. The wifi could be much better it doesn't reach to the rooms. I was very disappointed to hear that the beautiful gym was not open to guest without additional payment which in a hotel of this category and price is unacceptable.
