I liked the modern art and plants at the exteriour and in the center of the hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are well maintained and very clean and confortable. An extra chair or stool a little higher than average would be nice. The chair is too low for an average size dutch man 183 cm. The breakfast buffet is very... More

I stayed in the presidential suites, and must say it was good value for money. A minus was that the minibar only had water, and no snacks. But overall I recommend this. Sure the interior design is a bit out dated, but the views compensated that. Good service too. Excellent location.

Maksoud hotel was The 5 stars in São Paulo, its not no longer. It keeps the impressive character at lobby and reception. All the staff is very friendly. The rooms have a old stlyle but they are very clean and confortable. I don't aprecciate the restaurant. I've been there several times, and it is not at the hotel level.

I have stayed at the Maksoud several times and always enjoyed the visit. This is a local hotel with character and not a chain hotel. The open lobby is impressive and the reception, and all of the staff are very friendly. The rooms are a bit old in style, but I find them comfortable and they are clean. What I... More

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.
