That was my first time at this hotel as I usually stay at Itaim Bibi where our office is. This hotel is well located near two malls (walking distance to shopping Iguatemi and Eldorado), walking distance to the train going along the Pinheiros river (I took the train to the Interlagos race track for the F1 race), subway stations and...

This is a tired hotel. Wifi is slow and intermittent; breakfast is dull; the coffee is uniformly dreadful and the fruit tired. The rooms are small, and decorated for easy cleaning. The lifts are slow.

It is a very basic hotel. Nothing lacking but for the price you would expect more. However everything In that neighbourhood is expensive. It is a good location for a taxi to the hospital for medical appointments and the azul shuttle bus leaves from the elodorado shopping centre across the road.

I am sure there are better hotels in this fun loving town. Advertised as a business hotel, this place had nothing to offer. The internet was extremely slow and most of the time did not work. The rooms were cramp, the bathrooms had basic facilities. The lobby area could hold only few people and extremely small. Besides a great location,... More

This is a B&B hotel. It delivers what it promises: bed, breakfast, and no frills, whatsoever. The linens and towels are cheap, the mattress is horrible, and the pillow is like a rock. Besides, there is no central air conditioning, meaning the temperature depends on local air conditioning in selected places, leaving aside corridors, lobby, and other common areas. Translating,...

This place was adequate at best. The hotel is clean and has shampoo, but no iron. Like other reviews, the internet is SLOOOOWWWW. I mean, don't even plan on checking anything but your emails. Even then, I had to reboot gmail every 5 minutes. The free internet is only 128KBPS which is basically dial up and you have to log... More

Just looking for a place to sleep than it is fine. Room / bathroom clean All equipment available Every one very helpful. Breakfast is OK but the place has no charm at all. The terrass on the top of the building! could be something nice. This is a no man land. Nothing seems to work Wifi (free option) is slow.

The location of the hotel is reasonably good (it is close to Eldorado Shopping center, where one can e.g. have dinner). However, the rooms are small and there is no free internet (which was, let's say, unexpected, since the price was not at all small). Also, to have breakfast one must be lucky, since there is not enough place so... More

There is no heat in the hotel rooms ANY OF THEM. Sao Paulo gets cold. I asked the manager for a heater to be sent up. NO NO NO I will send you a blanket. SERIOUSLY. Never stay here if its cold. Have to have 00 characters but not much more to say. If you are cold and you want... More

Overall, this hotel was clean and close to the major Faria Lima street. It depends how important an Internet connection is to you, but if I had known the Internet connection was going to be both spotty and super slow I never would have stayed here. The rest of review is pretty detailed with minor notes that might not be... More
