I had a very nice week long stay at Cumberland. The room was clean and spacious, the staff was friendly and helpful, the complimentary breakfast was decent, and the view from the 17th floor was....well, I wouldn't say beautiful, but pretty captivating. My only regret was using the laundry service. I expected it to be overpriced, but the charges were nothing short of absurd. You can also easily get safe and reasonably priced taxi services right outside the main entrance, which is convenient.

It is a love hotel and when I arrived late at night was asked immediately how long I would occupy the room for, told them until morning! They are not great with Ingles either, as behind blacked out screen and hard to communicate through especially when have language diffuculty's as well. But room was fantastic, clean, and v posh. No hot water in morning though.
Pleasantly surprised at the condition of the lobby and our room. The staff at check in actually spoke English. Not so elsewhere in the country! No Internet in the room. Had to sit in the lobby to get connected. No pool unfortunately.

If you are looking for a small, quiet, safe hotel in the heart of Caracas with a cool art deco look, this is a great choice. Our room included breakfast which was a great bargain as food & beverages are very expensive in this city. Taxi from airport can be negotiated; driver wanted $65 worth in Bolivars but US$ will get you for more than half that rate. You MUST have local currency to travel around as Visa & MC are not accepted unless in really expensive stores. ATM's everywhere but useless as they won't take foreign bank cards (even with logos on the machines). Be aware that airport currency exchange folks will not take back Bolivars so you need to really spend as you go and avoid having a surplus. Hotel staff at The Hotel Caracas spoke limited English but were friendly and helpful. Room was spotless and hotel is very well kept. Only odd thing is that there's no private bathroom in any guestrooms unless its a suite; toilet is between sink and glass shower so if you're sharing a room, it could be odd when using the loo. There are private bathrooms on the main floor near reception. Hotel is less than 100 feet from Marriott which their website includes alot of good travel info too and a good reference to taxi drivers. Good Pizza place nearby, huge Simbal mall within 10-15 walk.
