“Big rooms, spotlessly clean, a good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2011

This is a suite hotel, with four rooms: kitchen, living room, bathroom (shower only, like most hotels in SP) and bedroom. I think my room (63) had just been renovated - it was spotlessly clean, no paint scuffmarks anywhere. Furniture is a bit old-fashioned but in very good condition.

Internet is wired-only in the living room, and charged at R$8 per day. Once you get it working, it's blisteringly fast.

Breakfast is the usual Brazilian fare, and of decent quality.

Staff didn't speak English, but were mostly pleasant, and always helpful.

I chose this place on a week when hotels in SP were very expensive - this place hadn't risen its rates, so represented good value - but its rates normally may seem a bit high. But it punches way above its 2* rating - it's more like a SP 4*.

A decent choice.

I say all that, and just as I'm about to hit submit, I noticed an army of ants running around on the desk. I haven't seen that in Sao Paulo before (only Salvador). Hmmm. Glad I'm about to check out ;)

The hotel is in great location and despite being two girls we never felt unsafe - the street is so lively that you just won't. The rooms are huge and the view very nice if your room is high up. Good breakfast and a cute little pool on the rooftop. The staff was extremely helpful!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2008

The Augusta Park is a little dated and on the edge of the decent area of Sao Paulo, but is a great, clean and safe option. The rooms are very large for the money, the kitchen is good enough to prepare and cook fresh food (supermarket over the road) and the whole place is immaculate. The breakfast is very good and the staff friendly and helpful. We paid R130 per night, which is great value, but that is a walk in price; the hotel did not reply to my email enquiries. The area looks a little seedy and is just part of the red light area but there is a very mixed crowd on the streets at night and there are some good places to eat and drink nearby, so don’t be put off by first impressions. Try to get a room high up or at the back due to noise.
