Our US family recently attended a wedding in Bauru and stayed at HJ Bauru for five days. The service, from the front desk to the housekeepers, was outstanding. Even though we spoke little Portuguese, the staff always went out of their way to assist us. In particular Bianca was extremely helpful in making the prearrangements. She answered our countless questions... More

The quickest check-in in Brazil. Very friendly and professional staff. Nice restaurant and excellent rooms. The internet was the best of the hotels I stayed in and the best was most comfortable Recommended

Bad internet. Room/hotel decor and facilities barely scrape two stars. Should be categorised as a budget hotel (and charge as one). Definitely, absolutely, positively NOT a four-star. Pillows were shabby. Old TV from the 1990's. Positive: large towels and 24h room service. Nice breakfast as well. And Friendly staff.

If you need internet access to work, create travel plans or just to use facebook, don't stay at this hotel. The internet is goes down every time an your downloads never finish. The people at the lobby couldn't make it work properly.

I was here on a business trip for 4 nights in early November 2013. The rooms are basic, small, and clean. You have what you need but nothing more. So f.e. there is no comfortable chair to sit. I really missed coffee/tea making facilities. Wifi for free, but didn’t work. Finally I got a cable to use the wired internet,... More

This was a very busy hotel when we stayed there. Nice modern lobby, with apples in bowl on the reception desk. Pleasant, helpful staff. Restaurant and small bar area are busy and food enjoyable. Pool and exercise room. Basic, but very clean rooms, tiled floors, with free in-room wi-fi. Air conditioning worked well, which is important in this climate. Hotel... More

This seems to be the only modern business hotel in Bauru. It’s a quite recent building, with Ibis-like room standards. Nothing too luxurious, but OK for a quick business trip. Most of the staff speaks no English or French, but are friendly enough. There is a breakfast buffet, but for other meals you'll need to find a restaurant in the... More

Bauru is a small/mid size city in São Paulo State, although the region is rich and growing as an important place for industries, the hotel options are restrict. Staying at the Howard Johnson provides you a goos location, with clean rooms, nice bath, gym, but not so good beds. Comparing with the other hotels in the city, choose this one.... More

Bauru is a nice and pleasant city and HoJo has a good location. There are nearby restaurants within walking distance and it's close to City Centre (15-20 minutes on foot). Good breakfast area, but it can be crowded and noisy as there are many business guests in this hotel. It's not a property for vacation. HoJo Bauru only carries the... More

We enjoyed our stay at HoJo in Bauru. Not many of this chain left in USA, we've never stayed at one. This spot was recommended by a local and we were very satisfied with our stay. The price and location were great. The rooms were acceptable, not luxurious but very adequate. The room service was quite tasty. The free breakfast... More
