I could simply advise any TripAdvisor reader simply to avoid this hotel and leave it at that but I feel I would be doing the travel community a disservice - and being generous to this sorry excuse for a hotel. The enjoyment begins with an unnecessarily long, protracted and inefficient check-in by staff who would clearly rather be somewhere else,... More

Location is good. Reception is lost, internet non working, bad attitude. Was book for 5 days, left next morning after checkin. They even charge for an ice bucket. For almost the same price yoy have tons of better choices around.

The hotel is clean and the rooms have everything you need. Even a small kitchen part is installed in the room. The bathroom is small with a shower, lavatory and sink. 2 single beds and a small TV. Prices are OK, only the attached skybar is expensive. Staff friendliness differs from friendly to short answers. Could also be a language... More

As other reviews have stated, average hotel in a good location. Room was quiet and comfortable, staff were friendly and spoke English which was a plus in Brazil. Breakfast was ok. There were a number of restaurants on the same street. Safe neighbourhood to walk around. If your staying in the neighbourhood on Sunday, the city closes Paulista to vehicle... More

Perfect location, small rooms. Rooms with 2 single beds are way too small for tall adults. Small outdated bathroom. Ask for a room with a kingsize bed, more convenient. Nice outdoor pool with a few hours sun. Friendly staff. Limited breakfast.

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
