As part of the Melia chain this hotel is no exception to the standard. Clan, tidy and not very spacious. It is located in the heart of the Paulista Avenue - one of the hearts of Sao Paulo. Reachable by taxi and Metro with a lot of shops and restaurants around it. The staff was very nice and tried to... More

I've stayed alone in a double room. The hotel is clean and the room is ok, but not too big. In my opinion not comfortable enough. The food was good, I've asked room service once. There is a taxi stop on the hotel, that's was really helpful, but they didn't provide any airport pick up. The attendance was not too... More

While the staff at the reception were very good, as were the bell attendants , and the Hotel is located at a very convenient spot on Avenue Paulista, one wishes that the amenities in the room were a bit more sophisticated. Great value for money though. I did find the service at the bar a bit slow when it got... More

The location of this hotel is very good, lots of places within walking distance, lots of food and a reasonably safe area. The hotel was clean, average place, decent breakfast though overpriced. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Oh, THIS WAS THE WORST place ever, honestly. How they get away with calling it a 'Hotel' is beyond us. The place stank of tobacco and damp.

Found this hotel to be very dated, laminate floor contributes to a very noisy hotel and the fact it's on a busy main road and no double glazing isn't conducive to a restful stay. My room was about 2 metres away from the office block opposite which meant you are unable to open the curtains unless you want the staff... More

Stayed over the World Cup, the hotel was busy but a great city hotel with great service. There is no pool but has a gym. The breakfast is ok, did not eat an evening meal in the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, I would stay here again

This hotel is categorically not even close to a 5 or 4 star hotel. The service is beyond awful . Check-ins take take an hour. We were given a room key to a room that was occupied.

Very friendly staff, good breakfast, comfortable bed and good size room. Next to metro and walking distance to good local shopping and restaurants. Good value, business hotel , suitable for holidaymakers. Generous late checkout, 3.30pm which was great for an evening flight.
