We booked this hotel based on a great deal offered with our flights. We found it to be a great hotel for our brief stopover on New Year's Eve, en route to Rio. We had a high room, with a great panorama of the city. Location was perfect for New Year's Eve-about 2 blocks off of Ave Paulista, where the... More

This hotel has a lot of good, but also some not so good. It's got a grand lobby with glass elevators, which are fun and remind me of the 70s. In fact, this hotel is still owned by the 70s, as told by the dated hallway carpet and decor. The rooms feature cement floors, not so cozy on the feets.... More

Location of hotel is wonderful & rooms were clean & adverage, but hotel (as many other reviewers have stated) needs a *Major* renovation.

WiFi signal inside the room could be a little bit improved (it dropped several times) and the staff at the check-in desk should pay more attention to guests (I had to call his attention because he never noticed I approached the reception). In one of my stays they forgot to leave water bottle in the room. The stay was pleasant... More

We've stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is well located, near to Av. Paulista. Rooms are clean, well mantained with good size. Unfortunately, the hotel looks too old fashion...consequently, creates a wrong perception to the guests (dark and lifeless). It's missing movement, a good cuisine, piano playing in the lounge...it just misses life!!!

It was a great experience to be hosted in MAKSOUD! Right at the lobby you are amazed by the size and the beautiful architecture of it. At the front desk the clerk call you by the name (if you've already been hosted there). The room (number 1219) was very clean and broad, with wooden floor. The bathroom was also broad,... More

The Maksoud is one of the more interesting hotels I have ever stayed at. As many others have said, the property has a very strong 70s vibe. For the most part, the property has clearly been very well maintained, but you can do only so much to keep things going as long as they have. At a minimum, I would... More

Pulling up to the hotel, I thought we were in the wrong place. It looked like a construction zone or an abandoned building, not a 4+star hotel. The exterior is "trendy", I guess, but not my style, to say the least. Upon entering the lobby, I could tell that it was once beautiful, but now seems tired. Everything is a... More
