What’s your favourite building? What building would you like to knock down?

The Hotel Humboldt was built in 1956 by architect Tomas Sanábria and the presidency of General Marcos Pérez Jiménez.

It is a low rise building, 60 meters high, 14 floors and 70 rooms. At the present time is not in use. Her circular structure that offers 360 degree view, especially clear day you can see perfectly Caracas, weather permitting.
The main attraction of the hotel Humboldt, is its location more than 2,000 meters above sea level, on the hill Warairarepano, having access through a rustic road vehicles, for the old “Kings Road” which was the via communication between Guaira seaport and Caracas during the time of the colony, and using the cable car.
In the hotel can enjoy local foods, ice skating, and recreational activities.

Actually I do not remember any building that should be torn down for the moment.
