Charming icon of the 1980's, Maksoud Plaza still offers comfortable and nicely decorated rooms, and an excellent breakfast. It's just one block away from Avenida Paulista. Room service is quite decent! Prices can vary a lot, depending on how early in advance you book, or how lucky you are to run into a good offer in Booking.com, Hotels.com or Decolar.com.

I was visiting São Paulo to celebrante wedding aniversary and had a pleasant stay at Maksoud. Fitness club and swimming pool are amazing. Good breakfast and snack bar. The view from elevator to interior lobby is awesone. Pretent to return for sure.

Nice and fresh food at buffet but nothing very original and every day the same. Rooms and furnitures bit old fashioned and needing some "refreshment", but quite, and clean which is important.

Dear Mr Frederic, Thank you for your comments. Maksoud Plaza has been constantly renewing its facilities and furniture maintaining, however, its original characteristics. The rooms’ windows are cleaned on a regular basis. Nonetheless, their double glass requires a more detailed cleaning process; the recent showers left some splashes, which were promptly wiped. We appreciate your understanding and hope you may... More

US$20 (R$45) for parking is a rip off, specially considering the price already paid for the room. By the way, the room should be better cleaned (tub and shower glass). Besides, hotel management should be a bit more conscious about water usage. The toilet flush was as powerful as a water fall. In the current water crisis in Sao Paulo,... More

I thought it was a very interesting hotel, very modern for its time and very unique. I really enjoyed the variety of the breakfast and the bed was really amazing. The location is perfect, the taxi rides to great restaurants is less than R$ 15 (reais).

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.
