The hotel was clean, the front reception host/hostess were helpful and friendly. They spoke English which was great as a business traveller. The waiters and waitresses in the restaurant did not speak English but we managed to understand and order. However, if you need room service on a night when you are working you must call the front desk and... More

The hotel facilities are quite good such as the location. Close to vila boim, there're bars and restaurants walking distance. Nevertheless, It was very cold in Sao Paulo and besides no heating is available, there's a ventilation in the living room that made the room extremely cold. I recommend the hotel but not during cold periods.

I stayed at this hotel due to its location. The staff was always very kind and willing to help in whichever way they could: kudos to them. Breakfast had a good selection of fruits, which is what I care about, and I ate well every morning. The best of the hotel is its location in Higienopolis, with many bars and... More
