This was my first trip to Brazil. I was attending a business meeting with a couple of days of free time on each end of the meeting. I had no idea or preconceived notion of what Sao Paulo or the hotel would be like. I was pleasantly surprised by the TRYP Higienopolis Hotel. It is located in an upscale, tree lined, pleasant neighborhood with lots of shops, restaurants and public parks. Higienopolis is convenient to downtown and many interesting sights.
The rooms in the hotel are very large and well appointed but not, by any means, lavish. Our room had everything we would need for a pleasant stay and then some: robes, minibar, safe, internet, a desk, comfortable chair. The bed was very comfortable, with plenty of extra pillows of various types. The bathroom was small but well appointed. The shower was a deluge of water. The major negative was the toilet. It tended to slow and clog up with little provocation. A call to the front desk resulted in very quick service.
I found the front desk staff to be very helpful. Most or all of them spoke some English. The consierge, Alex, was very helpful and resourceful. He arranged a great tour to Santos and surrounding areas, and scored free tickets to a Sunday morning concert for my wife and I.
We got to meet the General Manager of the Hotel, Golda, on a couple of occasions. She was very friendly and helpful to us and very enthusiastic about her hotel and her job.
The restaurant in the hotel was very nice. We had all of our breakfasts there (included with our stay) and one dinner and one lunch. The food was very good and the staff, very attentive and friendly.
The TRYP Higienopolis is a gem of a hotel in a nice neighborhood in Sao Paulo. It contributed greatly to our enjoyment of Sao Paulo.
