I am brazilian but live in NYC. I chose this hotel because I am from Sao Paulo and know how dangerous certain areas are. This Maksoud Plaza area is safe and near by many walking distance shops, diners, subways, restaurants, cafes, etc. Hotel used to be considered 5 stars back in the late 90's but today its just a very...

I had Room 1123, a corner room, which has a little more space than the standard room. The hotel was built in the 80's and the rooms are a little dated. But my room was spotlessly clean, air conditioned, with a smart flat screen tv, and larger than I expected. The leisure facilities were pretty good, a well equipped gym,... More

I stayed for 6 weeks in 1980, awaiting housing, and was treated like royalty. On the same floor and using the same elevator with Cary Grant, Grace Kelly and Old Blue Eyes, who was performing on site. Absolutely star struck! Best caipirinhas in SP, Great restaurant and immaculate accommodations. Now sadly a faded beauty smelling like old people do. Stayed... More

Stayed for two nights and definitely enjoy it. Rooms are pretty spacious and staff is professional and friendly. Breakfast is above-average. Location is great as it is close to the metro station. Safe and quiet at all time.

Rooms are below average, if compared to US, the rooms are what you would find in a 2 star hotel, outdated, bland, in dire need of updating. The breakfast buffet was very busy, ran out of bacon, eggs, bread, but service personnel were very polite, apologetic. After 30 min wait, eggs were replenished, but no bacon, after 1 hr, still...

I stayed in this hotel for a conference for a whole week. The hotel had everything you would expect, but felt dark and some what impersonal. It was good to get outdoors for fresh air and sometimes felt a little depressing to come back into the dark hotel with it being so bright and colourful outside. With Club Accor membership... More

Not sure why this has been rated 4 star. very old property. comfortable beds and big room size but the attitude of some of the staff was completely unacceptable. Good location, 2 minues walk to the Paulista avenue and the metro stations. Is it value for money? I am not sure if I would go there again to stay.

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
