    Room comfort and breakfast, happy hour buffet in a separate location compared to the base fare rooms

    Location is very bad, I do not suggest to anyone to go out and walk in the suttoundings, is very dangerous. At the arrival I made a long queue for check in and there were 8 people of the staff, 3 working and 5 just looking other people work!!! After waiting the told me to go to 14th floor because there was a special reception for luxury rooms (pity they didn't tell me before queuing). I bought an internet connection for 2 days (quite expensive 40USD) but it worked very bad, very slow, practically impossible to work like that.... my surprise in the reception hall there is a wifi hot spot that works well and is free of charge!!! so if You think to work in your room, forget about it!! last bad point the check out: I knew I had a different and special location for my checkout but, unfortunately the system there was not working, so even if You paid for a priority... I had to go downstairs and make the normal queue... I will not go back to Grand Melia for sure, I will suggest Marriott Renaissance instead, better location, new Hotel and fast service.

    i didnt like the fact that we were paying $300.00 dolars at night but were not allow to use the Gym as it was not included in the room rate !!

    Good

    The accommodation and the room was first class. everything worked.

    When I arrived they did not have a room for me, although my reservation through Booked.net was weeks back. I had to wait nearly two hours until they finally came up with an upgrade into a suite room. When you are tired and weary you just want your room and not sitting in the lobby and waiting and waiting, not knowing if they will come up with something.

    Just the room which is very cosy.But I have to say that the checkin/checkout service was too slow. Besides, there was a line in the lobby for that, which is not acceptable for a hotel as Melia.

    Good value for money compared to the other international hotels.

    Reception staff extremely slow. Prepare for a queue when you check out.

    Wonderful Lobby! Breakfast is ok.

    There are 6 Elevators and every can handle normal 15 Person. Why ever there is only One in operation and a small paper informs that the elevator can handle max. 6 persons. Nobody respect this information and so its really dangerous, but not the hotel-stuff less the hotel- managment like to solve this problem!

    Well located, safe area for Caracas - next to shopping mall.

    Amazed that hotels can still get away with charging for internet - $30 is verging on abuse. Only 2 of the 6 lifts were working, noticed this was commented on by others several months ago - waiting 10 minutes is pretty annoying. Bascis like no irons available is not acceptable.

    Not enough Elevators, only three were operating fron six total
