The hotel is a few blocks from Avenue Paulista, and can safely reached by walking. The facilities are geared toward business travelers, but we stayed in a small suite with a kitchenette that would serve tourist travelers too. Our room was clean and comfortable, with great internet and NET TV. The bathroom was modern and clean (although the air vent... More

The hotel was great and the location even better. Staid there during a business trip and the biggest highlight was the fact that the location was very calm compared to the rest of the city, which allowed me and my colleagues to relax from the chaotic traffic and noise. We used taxis to commute and found it very handy. Breakfast... More

Friendly and attentive staff, clean and spacious rooms, nice breakfast buffet with the possibility to order eggs at own taste. The swimming pool area is quite small, but it does it's work.

The location of this hotel is brilliant- a short walk away from the main area. The hotel rooms are very clean and accommodating. The breakfast in the morning was more than substantial and the staff very friendly and willing to help. I would stay here again!

Awesome breakfast. Clean hotel. English speaking receptionists. Just need to replace used towels daily and beddings daily like other hotels I've been through. Perfect location near Paulosta and the metro. Peaceful neighbourhood Great times! I will love to go back.

The hotel is close to Paulista Avenue and therefore situated close to a metro stop in a safe and central area. The rooms were comfortable, clean and spacious. Each room has a separate lounge area and kitchenette. But here's the problem - they provide a fridge and microwave, a glass and cup but no utensils or plates. Not even a... More

This hotel is great for its value. The rooms are very clean and modern & the beds were very comfortable. We did have somewhat of a language barrier when we checked in though. When we asked questions at the front counter other times though they had someone there who spoke English well. Breakfast here is great. This is by far... More

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
