The Humboldt Hotel is a time capsule that leads us straight to the fifties. The Hotel is an island in an overwhelming green forest, a lighthouse that can be seen from almost any corner of Caracas; a tribute to the light of the Tropic. It is also a place for rest and fun, where history and technology mix to offer a high-level experience at over 7,218 feet above sea level.
This Hotel, with ample spaces, is probably the most famous work of Venezuelan Architect Tomás Sanabria (1922 – 2008). Together with Engineers Gustavo Larrazábal and Oscar Urreiztieta, they got to build and operate the Hotel in 199 days, just one day before the deadline agreed!
The result is a cylindrical tower with 70 rooms and a bar with 360 degrees panoramic view attached to a lower structure with social, entertainment and service areas, placed under a series of vaults and prism structures.
