I stayed for three days and i recommend tou to AVOID THIS HOTEL. You can't sleep with the sound of the street, which is insanely loud. The air conditioner did the same sound as a motorcycle. And the neighborhood was not safe! Don't go out after 6pm.

Normandie H, Marketing at Normandie Design Hotel, responded to this review

Hello Jesus Thanks for your feedback, our customers opinions are very important for us. Given our privileged location downtown, excellent for shopping on the 25 de Março Street, Sta Ifigênia or Brás, sometimes we may suffer from some noise inconveniences that all big avenues, located on big cities can cause. But, we're already working on replacing our current front windows... More

We stayed here last night with my family because our connection flight was delay and the airline sent us here. TERRIBLE hotel. Avoid it under any cost!!!!!! Really!!!!!!! The first thing we saw when we entered the room was a half eaten cookie in the floor. Dirty. Everything is really old.... But dirty old, not nice vintage old. Bathroom full... More

I arrived yesterday evening in this hotel, sold as a 4 stars and I found myself in the city center of SP dark and with no open business @ 8 pm! Rooms are noisy, bathroom looks as a camping toilette and the rain is so strong that when hits the air conditioning the room sounds like in a tube station... More

I and two friends stayed here for four days and loved it. Although the rooms weren't as classy as the photographs made out (we only booked the cheaper rooms anyway), we were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The staff were delightful, helpful and very friendly. Although we only had a smattering of Spanish/Portuguese between us, and after some... More

The Normandie Design Hotel is mentioned in the Wallpaper City Guide of Sao Paulo – I'm not sure weather this is justifiable, the term design hotel is a very elastic one. But it is for sure nicely done, simple, decent clean a bit worn out but reasonable priced for Sao Paulo. The Neighborhhod though wasnt like you would do nightwalks... More

We tried to book here based on a review in the Lonely Planet guide and actually thought we had after calling to reserve a room (no email address is available) but when we rang the next day to double check, there was apparently no record of our booking. To make matters worse, we kept being hung up on while being... More

I read the reviews posted on Trip Advisor, but I thought I'd still go because many times I had not agreed with the other reviews posted. Well, this time I should have considered what I read. The hotel's location is NOT safe, the room was OK but bathroom really bad! The inside of the hotel is sooo totally outdated and... More

Frommer's Brazil guidebook lists this property as "very expensive" in the Centro neighborhood and "sleek, stylish, cool". The hotel's website talks about a style inspired by the renovation of Paramount Hotel of New York by Philippe Starck. Well, the hotel owner may have had this vision, but the execution was horribly done. The hallways and room were dated, and badly/cheaply... More

The eggs at breakfast were not fresh at all. The dining room staff were insensitive and intolerant as we only spoke English and had a very limited understanding of Portuguese. The rooms were tiny. There was no view from the rooms and when you opened the windows all you saw was a dark alley and the back of another old... More
