“Do not stay there ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2014

Expedia gave me this hotel as an option. I was looking for an affordable place to stay 1 or 2 nights only. I did not pay attention that they do not offer free internet and to have it I was supposed to pay $15 a day. When I arrived I asked if was possible to have an early check in as I was travelling 27 hours in a row but I was denied. The lobby washroom was disgusting and only the men were open. There was a foreign guy complaining about his room at the reception desk and he was actually leaving the hotel. It was a bad sing but I did not have another place to stay.
When I finally got to my room I realize how awful it was. It looked like a very cheap motel room. It was cheap. The bathroom wall were leaking. A bug bit my feet when I set on the bed. The air condition was not working and the window open let a very high noise from outside in. I spend the night without sleep concerned to be murdered.
Breakfast also not good at all. First thing in the morning I did was find another place to stay.

Room Tip: no good room at this hotel

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

First of all, when I come to São Paulo, I tend to stay at an hotel near this one (Tryp Paulista). This time I couldn't get a room there and found nice reviews about it here.

The stay was a nightmare. They say about free Internet but it's a 3Rd party service. When I reached the room, it looks like a motel room. Most parts of the room had problems with conservation and it smells like mold everywhere. There are no electrical plugs in the room, only at the bathroom. I had to turn of the refrigerator to turn on my notebook.

Tl;dr: It's a trap. Doesn't worth the price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

The hotel is located just a few blocks from Av. Paulista. The area appears to be safe. There is a lot of police watchtowers around, and several bars and restaurants close to the hotel. Room furnitures looked a bit old, bathroom looked a bit neglected, but I still appreciate the hotel well. Very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast. General feeling good.
