A great place to stay in Sao Paulo. Great location, great staff, great cleanliness. I stayed here on business for a week recently. I would recommend this hotel very strongly it is well located, very safe and very good value for money. All of the staff were very helpful and efficient. Many people often complain about Wi-Fi in Sao Paulo... More

The hotel itself is nothing special, the rooms are sterile and the finishings are all outdated. The bed is not comfortable, Internet is slow and they only give you access to one device; you need to call for more devices and they would only give me access for two. If you are here on business you will not feel comfortable... More

The room is amazing, everything you might need. I loved specially the red sofa. The bed is incredibly comfy, really nice and clean, good lightening in the toilet too. The localization is also really great.

The location is great, with lots of good restaurants around and the hotel is close to Avenida Paulista. Unfortunately the management of the Hotel does not work, leaving guests waiting at check in or check out even hours to be attend .... terrible ..... It is very far from being an international hotel with a few stars ....

I stayed at Transamerica Prime in one of my business trip in Sao Paulo. It was near the event I was participating. And I liked. Nice room, nice hotel, and close to avenida Paulista. The size of the room really surprised me.

Great location. Adequate Service. Room had nothing wrong, but was old, outdated and clearly in need of an upgrade. Would I stay again - no, much nicer hotels in SP.

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
