For long, Maksoud Plaza was the first 5-star landmark, the benchmark hotel, when talking about hospitality and sophistication in São Paulo. The hotel was the creation of Henry Maksoud, multi-talented entrepreneur, engineer, publisher, political activist, one of the Syrian-Lebanese Brazilian success stories and who at one particular point decided to begin lifting hotel standards in Latin America. Of course, it... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Maksoud. It is an average hotel. Service is really good. But the hotel itself does not feel like a 5 stars hotel - it is an old hotel which was renovated - but still need some help. Breakfast is great, though! Location is also very good! Then, I cannot understand that such an hotel,... More

Had two nights there to watch world cup game Ned's vs Argentina. The place has central location. Breakfast is included but poor selection. Takes a lots of time until elevator comes although they have four of them. AC in the room works perfectly good. 4 star hotel for short trips.

Dear Mr Erdene, We appreciate your comments and praise on Maksoud’s location and perfect functioning of the air conditioning in the room. We would like to say that Maksoud Plaza is a 5-star hotel, traditional in São Paulo. We understand that if in any moment the elevator took a little longer to arrive, this was due to the intense movement... More

I had a short stay, 2 nights during the World Cup, but a wonderful stay at Maksoud Plaza. The hotel even if a bit older and dated is very good. Most importantly very clean rooms and very quiet rooms with everything a guest needs for a comfortable stay. The rooms are true to the pictures on the website and the... More

The hotel is located in central Sao Paolo in a safe neighborhood. The hotel itself is a bit dated. But the rooms and the interior are clean.

Excellent, clean and pleasant to the eye hotel in the heart of Sao Paulo. Convenient to everything. Their buffet breakfast is superb and their staff is excellent and friendly. The courtyard is magnificent and provides a beautiful view of the inside of the hotel. In addition, it is nice and quiet making it a pleasant lobby experience.

I was bumped by another hotel, and Maksoud was the only alternative. The whole hotel is coming straight from another era. My room appeared to be out of a 60/70 movie.
