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.

My recent stay at the Transamerica Prime International Plaza in Sao Paulo was good overall. Stay was from June 30-July 4, 2014. The good: Great location one block away from Avenida Paulista, less expensive compared to many other hotels in this area, a decent clean room at a fair price, great breakfast spread. One positive was the manually controlled fan/AC... More

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 Room had nothing wrong, but was old, outdated and clearly in need of an upgrade.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. But if the city is full and the price is right there is nothing wrong. As with most things in life you get what you pay for and its half... More

It is a great hotel located one block from Paulista Avenue, one of the best locations in town. Apartments have a small kitchen with microwave and dishes. The only thing missing was a coffee blender. Pool is fine, gym is good (good quality and new equipments). Restaurant is good as well.

Very good hotel located just off Paulista - rooms are apartment style, modern well equipped. Staff very efficient and friendly. Wifi was reasonable and free of charge, but a little erratic The complimentary breakfast was decent but the restaurant area can get very full early mornings. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a leisure or business stay in Sao Paulo
