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. Yet the furniture was in perfect condition, the room clean and the TV was a flat screen. WiFi internet was included in the price (decent speed). Front desk service... More

The hotel is located quite central, one block away from Av. Paulista. The building itself has seen better times, too many colors, retro looking. The rooms were big and quite comfortable. Clean but not super clean. Everything inside the room it's 70's style. The aircon did not work correctly and it was quite humid and warm in the room. The... More

We are Australian and did an on line booking. Choose the Maksoud due to it's location and their ability to correspond with us in English via email.

This is a large hotel with lots of spacious rooms and reasonable facilities. However the Maksoud is very tired and in need of an upgrade. The best points of my stay we're definitely the high quality HD TV, and the good standard of food. The worst points were definitely the poor standard of service. My room service breakfast was delivered... More

I stayed in Maksoud Plaza for a week in November 2013 in Executive Double Room on the 11th floor. It was my third time in Sao Paulo, but first at Maksoud. I was positively impressed with the design of the building and elevators that overlook the inner yard of the hotel. I had a few more surprises, but they were... More

This property is a bit outdated, but still functions well. While it doesn't have the lackluster and pizzazz of more recent properties, it serves it's purpose well. The rooms are comfortable and nicely apportioned, restaurant options are varied, and the location in the Paulista district is ideal. The only downside is that the internet connectivity is sparse and unreliable.

When we first checked in we bonded with the gentlemen on the night desk. They were charming and friendly and we had a great time joking with them and getting a dinner suggestion. That, unfortunately, was the last good interaction we had. The concierge kept trying to get us to go to the restaurants in the building. Even to the... More
