We were impressed by the size of the room, and confortable bed. The location is good, two or three blocks from Trianon-Masp metro station at av. Paulista. However, the street is steep, one needs to be aware of it. The service is not the best, they are not exaclty fast or efficient. The breakfast is quite complete, they have a... More

The hotel is well located in a very quiet and safe residential area. Within minutes is the Avenida Paulista. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable (especially the bed). The hotel has a good restaurant with normal prices. The wi fi is good and free. The breakfast could have more quality.

Nice hotel, good breakfast. The staff could not help out regarding sight seeing. Free wi-fi worked well. Walking distance to Ave. Paulista. Seemed like safe area of Sao Paulo, we walked around the hotel. Worth the price

I hated this hotel. The only thing I can say good is that the complimentary breakfast was a plus. The rooms are a good size but they need updating and the toilets suck. People in my party told me that they had the same issues and I felt ashamed to have someone come up and unclog my toilet. My carpet... More

I'll keep it nice and short... The rooms are awful and look nothing like in the pictures, i've stayed at better Holiday Inn's. The towels in the room all had a bunch of hair on them and it took about 1 hour to get new towels. In-front of a hotel there was a group of guys just hanging out looking... More
