Reviewed 22 September 2013

I was born and raised in Caracas and moved to the US 4 years ago. Ever since I moved and I have to go to Caracas during this 4 years I have been going to Lidotel and let me tell you, this is the best place by far in this city. For me I can call it my second home, and I really miss the hotel when I left, specially after a long stay.

Rooms are HUGE!!!, beds are cozy, every room has a delightful decoration and you can count in an ice cold A/C when you want it. Breakfast is from another world!! Restaurant in general has one of the best views in the city and one of the best food also.

This is the ONLY PLACE in Caracas where you can just go down stairs and find what ever you need with out leaving the hotel property, that in Caracas is PRICELESS.

Gym is absolutely amazing, haven't seen one not even close to this in the US...

No better place to go!

Room Tip: If you really depend on your cell phone during your stay, ask for rooms located on the outside, room...

Hotels in Caracas are generally expensive so this review is very much in context with that. The hotel is comfortable and the room was large, however it was a little 'tired' and in much need of refurbishment.
The public areas are great and the service is very good there also, however the room could be much improved with a little attention such as fixing damaged furniture. Also the mini-bar was empty with a note that if I wanted one, it would be stocked. No problem I guess, but at this level should you have to request your mini-bar to be filled?
I ordered room service one evening (a simple pizza) to be called back 40mins later that the ovens were u/s and did I want something else. Not great really.
Don't get me wrong, this is a good hotel and the service friendly but I think it is fighting a little above its weight in the term of luxury service.

Thank you for your review. We apologize for any inconvenience you might have experienced. We would like to mention that we have been renewing our accommodations and have already upgraded all of the television and have installed signature bedding throughout the hotel. We are continuing the renovations as needed. As it relates to the minibars, yes we have removed all the alcohol in the minibar due to the fact that liquor imports into the country have become rather difficult to obtain. We still offer in room liquor upon request and also offer a full service bar in the lobby.

We stayed for 7 days, 6 nights, splitting our stay in two: 3 nights in a VIP room and 3 nights in a junior suite. I have to say, I'm quite surprised and disappointed at other reviewers who have said anything less than fantastic about this hotel -you guys made me almost not stay here! We couldn't be happier with our choice. The service was excellent, the rooms spacious, refined, stylish and on the luxurious side. The gym is phenomenal.

The location, I'd say, is the best for Caracas. You're close-by the business and financial district, near Las Mercedes, not far from the center, and close to anything and everything there is to visit and see in Caracas. We stopped by the JW Marriott as well as the Embassy Suites and, I have to tell you, we enjoyed Lidotel much better.

The only bad thing, if anything, is their lack of a pool. But you have a great gym and spa, a shopping mall, as well as some great restaurants nearby.

TIPS: (1) given the location, room rates are cheaper on the weekend than on the week; (2) try the breakfast buffett -fantastic! (3) Don't book online but by email should you decide (and there[s no reason to do otherwise unless you're crazy) to pay in Bolivars at check out: otherwise you'll get charged in your card the rate in bolivars but at the official exchange rate: (4) careful with the hotel taxis: they DO overprice their fares.

Real Quality hotel, spacious rooms, very confortables pillows, bath amennities and so on, but I can't saw a "boutique style" on it.

Helpful staff at the lobby.
The restaurant is at the 15th floor, but the elevators reach only at the 14th, so take stairs; a little difficult for disables and senior people.
Real slow to take and serve orders, while attending only four tables.

It could be the Venezuelan economy, but I think that the fares are too much expensive if you compare with other similar hotels.

Without prior reservations is very difficult to get a room, beware of that, really.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a good review on the LIDOTEL Centro Lido Caracas. We appreciate your comments and feedback.

The hotel does have a classic decor, unlike our other hotels which offer a more modern avante-garde design element. We have recently upgraded the bedding in all of our guestrooms and suites along with the televisions, etc. We continuously strive to improve our accommodations and public spaces and we will take your suggestions into consideration.

Due to currency control measures and inflation, it may seem that the hotel prices are high in Caracas. You can always assume that if it costs you one dollar in the US it will cost you two or three dollars in Venezuela. This is also the case with everyday goods and merchandise throughout the country. With this in mind, we do feel that our hotel is fairly priced for the market.

I stayed over a period of 4 years many times in this hotel.
The suites are really huge and classic. Everything what you need as a business person you will find here.
You have your office with all your needs. Several tv's in several rooms.
Bath room which is also excellent.
And this hotel is really central in Caracas. So good restaurants and bars are on walking distance.
