“Business Only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Everything about this hotel is fine. The rooms are fine, the restaurant in fine (the evening buffet actually rather good), it's clean and modern. But it's located in a sort of industrial wasteland next to a very busy road, a long and monotonous walk from anywhere, including the subway station. If you're on business, or being picked up and driven around, this hotel is absolutely fine. But if location matters and you're a visitor wanting to explore Sao Paolo and stay in a hotel close to bars and restaurants, look elsewhere. Sao Paulo is a huge city, but even so, you can explore it from far better bases than this. And if you do get stuck in the bar one night, the service can be less than enthusiastic. A tip: if you want to drink in the bar late, order it on room service and ask for it to be delivered to... the bar.
Not a bad hotel, but a dull location.

Great business hotel - very clean and great customer service. Not exactly within walking distance of restaurants, bars or any other attractions but VERY close to the bus and train station. My con would be that the tv had horrible reception.

Dear Mr. Yuly G.

Thank you for choosing Hotel Panamby São Paulo for your stay in the city.

Indeed, from the hotel our guests have easy access to several bus lines as well as to a major metro, bus and interurban train station. We are also located near Av. Marginal Tietê, one of the main avenues in São Paulo.

Shoppings Bourbon and West Plaza, Anhembi Convention Center, Allianz Parque Arena and Espaço das Americas Center are also located nearby.

We look forward to your return in the near future.

Kind regards,

I was in Sao Paulo for a week on business. The hotel is located in a part of the city that isn't near anything within walking distance, but you don't want to walk around by yourself if you are a woman. When I checked in they were pretty open with my information in front of others. It seemed that as soon as they heard my American accent people moved closer to the front desk My suggestion is to be sure that there is no one else near the front desk. When I went to check out someone had used my name and room number to charge their breakfast. They had even signed my name on the receipt, pretty scary except they added a different middle initial for my middle name. Breakfast was included in the price and I really didn't care for the breakfast buffet that they had so I did not eat there, but whoever used my name and room number did. They took it off my bill but the fact that they allow everyone to come to the counter when you are checking in is scary and now I have learned a valuable lesson if I need to travel to Brazil or anywhere again. I never have had this happen before and I travel a lot for both business and pleasure.
The rooms were not the cleanest and some of the others that I worked with that stayed at the hotel said the same.
The hotel was close to my company but that was it. To travel anywhere you have to take a taxi.
The hotel does not have any outside grounds, pool or gym. I suggest if you really want to see what the hotel looks like on the outside and what is around it, do a google map search and go to street level.

Dear guest,

Thank you for bringing this situation to our attention. We understand there was a misunderstanding. Our receptionists were trying to help attend in your check in. They have since gone through new training so that they will do it in a better way next time.
On a side note, we have a varied breakfast with more than forty different items and it is indeed included in our price.
In addition, we do have a gym and a solarium in our top floor as well as a small garden in front of our restaurant.
We regret that your impression of us wasn’t positive, however we extend to you an invitation so that we can revert your discomfort during your stay. We thank you for your comments. We are open to whatever is your need.

Sincerely,

I was here for 1 day (2 nights) in July 2014 as a layover. This is a fairly new hotel (opened in 2013 I believe) and the room I was in was clean + modern looking and had lots of power points for recharging etc (the power points were all inset so needed a proper cable + rather than an adaptor).

This seems more of a business hotel rather than for passing tourist (with lots of conference rooms etc) and located away from any easy to walk to city features/parks/restaurants etc (need to catch bus/taxi into town). However, it had both a restaurant and a coffee shop and food was quite good and reasonably priced.

Staff I interacted with were friendly and helpful, and though there was no tour desk, staff at the front counter helped organise a tour for me to fill in my day.

This hotel should not be confused with another Panamby hotel near the airport with has a shuttle bus service. This hotel is a 25 min drive to the airport (before peak hour if going opposite the traffic flow) but otherwise around a 30-60 min drive from the airport

the hotel is brand new, so everything is clean and functioning, the area is good, 3 min/R$8 taxi drive to Barra Funda (bus and metro station) where you can grab transportation to anywhere in the city.... the only thing i didn't like about this hotel was the price of their extras water, beer, food was extremely expensive

In a good area of Sao Paulo, although the taxi drivers struggled to locate it at times. Good facilities, parking, rooms good, clean, staff very helpful.Not to be confused with the hotel of the same name near the airport.
