I stayed in Nelsons room for 2 nights. It was my first time in South America and with little Spanish Nelson was very helpful and freindly. The room was basis but clean had access to internet and own bathroom. The area is central and near the Metro. I would highly recommend to any visitor to Caracas

For anyone needing a safe, convenient ( Sabana Grande) location, excellent value, don't look any further. you have arrived! This is a fully furnished apartment, not a hotel, so self catering , or eat out. You are in front of a major shopping center, a couple of blocks from the metro, and with a reliable taxi driver on the premises....
