The hotel has a large plaque on the outside advertising it is a 5-star hotel (on the shampoo bottles as well.) Maybe in the 1970's- which the decor seems to be from. My review is rather harsh as they consider themselves a five-star hotel. While this might be an "average" hotel otherwise, I'm giving a "poor" because of their aspirations.... More

Hotel Transamerica is a good opportunity to stay in a very confortable hotel and not spending the sums of money that a 5 star hotel would cost. The rooms are ample, it not located near anywhere, although Sao Paulo is a huge city, where nowhere is close to nowhere. The breadfasts are very good, it is a highly recommended hotel.

Sao Paulo is a giant city with giant city costs and chaos. This is an excellent place to stay without spending ridiculous sums for a five star. The rooftop bar offers not only an excellent view but excellent drinks and fare. The room is small but clean and the staff are very cheerful. Overall a fine stay.

From the perspective of cleanliness, roomsize and facilities, this is a great hotel. For those attending exhibitions at the transamercia expo center, you'll find the hotel is only a 10 minute walk away, although the sidewalks are not great. But, other than the transamerica, this hotel is a long way from everywhere, and not great if you're visiting as a... More

This is a very good option if you need to stay in the surrounding area. Rooms are large, clean and well maintained, although they will need a facelift shortly. Free Wifi works very well throughout the hotel and sports facilities are good with a small 3 hole golf course, football pitch, tennis courts, small pool and a good gym. Staff... More

I spent 4 nights here in late May 2014. Attended a conference at an adjacent convention center, and this was the official hotel. As hotel, it was fine - clean, large rooms, very good included breakfast. The big problem is that it is a LONG way from the center of Sao Paulo, where most of the attractions are. Given that... More

I would only recommend this hotel if you are on a short business trip and your office destination is nearby. The location is quite remote, as there is no chance to go out for a walk and a taxi is needed to get to an restaurant. If you get a renovated room, it will be ok. The ones not renovated... More

I spent a week for business in a room on the first floor Early May. Huge noise on 24 hr basis coming from the building structure (most likely from air conditioning machines noise amplified by the lift structure). It is structural and not something that can be fixed. Avoid the South Tower!

I had an excellent stay at Hotel Transamerica. A pity maybe that my room had a shower and not a bath and that the juices at the breakfast buffet were tasteless. But that's really small details. Otherwise everything was good, service attentive and the room clean and comfy.
