I stayed at the Mercure with a group of business travelers. The Mercure's clean rooms and great complimentary internet make this a good choice for business travelers.
The rooms are clean and well appointed with synthetic wood flooring. I found the flooring to be nice, as it provided a more "clean" feeling than out of date carpeting. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet. The bathroom is more of the same: a clean, modern area that has most of what you would need. My one tip is that the hotel's water pressure is astounding. The sink faucet will send water directly into your clothing if you are not careful. I actually flooded the bathroom by running the shower for 5 minutes as the drain can simply not keep up. Wireless internet is complimentary and works well. I was able to call home over it without issue. The Mercure's selection of television channels even includes some english speaking options, a nice touch. The only complaint is that the rooms lack irons, ironing boards, and alarm clocks. An iron and board can be requested, but the board arrived dirty and with holes in it. If you are without your own alarm, the wake up call is your only option...and the phone options are all in Portugese.
The location of the hotel is OK, and our group did walk to the nearby "Costelaria Carro de Boi" one night...but I'm not sure I'd suggest wandering around the area much after dark. The staff were all quite friendly, and the small restaurant has both buffet and menu driven options for dinner. For $20 a day I'm not sure the breakfast buffet is a good value, but does contain a decent array of rotating options. The exercise area is located on the roof, and has a nice view...but is very limited in scope. The same goes for the pool, it is very small and seems more targeted towards those looking to exercise. The hotel itself lacks a sundries shop, but the well appointed mini-bar has many of the things you'd want...even Gatorade.
In general, this is a cost effective option for business travelers in Campinas or Indaiatuba. You will find clean rooms, a friendly staff, and modern amenities.
