This hotel was one of the premier hotels in the 1980's. Visited by artists like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and many more. Its an older property but the rooms are spacious, the staff is excellent, the food is good, the location is outstanding and the price is terrific. The WiFi and cable reception are some of the best I've experienced... More

Good service, helpful Concierge. Clean and convenient. Breakfast buffet is well presented, with good variety and good coffee, plus the not-to-miss bite size cheese breads, fresh and tasty. Evenings at that lobby were accompanied by a nice and mellow piano player, and caipirinhas are the perfect companion for the music.

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.

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
