La Residence Paulista
Ranked #151 of 326 Hotels in Sao Paulo
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Rooms a little small but staff is great and Jardins side of Augusta is best location. There is a pool, kitchenette, and near to the fancy shops of Augusta Jardins, and the fun shops of Augusta Centrio, Metro near, too. Staff was quick and helpful when I needed help with cable, or questions about SP.

Location is excellent, close to Rua Augusta and Av. Paulista. It's quiet because the party mile is on the other side of Av. Paulista. It's clean. The price/value ration does not fit. Staff does not speak English very much, breakfast could be better. They charge separately for the Internet (R$ 5 for one day, R$30 for 30 days). They have simple traditional keys, no key cards.

It has reasonable prices. Front desk crew can speak in English or Spanish, seldom, even close to Avenida Paulista. It has a good breakfast with a view to swimming pool. They have a good restaurant for lunch and dinner. We did not have problems with noise. The whereabouts is great. We have museum, malls, shoes store, outlet. It is close to Rua Oscar Freire that has many brands like Fifth Ave. Good places to eat and even to take a coffee. We recommend it!

Hotel is in a really good location. Unfortunately everything is a bit old and worn out... and the hotel has such an abundance of mirrors in the reception its like something out of an 80's music video.

Room size is good and includes a table and kitchen area which is nice. Also complimentary l'occitane soaps which was nice. Slightly confusing room layout as all the even numbers are on one side of the hotel and all the odd numbers the other. Didn't manage to try the breakfast which is included but there are several nice bakeries nearby which are open 24h (in particular Bella Paulista).

Matress had bed springs poking through and upon arrival bulb was blown which was prompty fixed. Were woken up every day by cleaners hoovering at approx 7am. Main complaint though was on checkout. We paid in full on arrival - R$300 in cash and the remainder on card. On checkout though they had a record of us paying R$100 cash, R$190 by cheque (note we don't actually carry a chequebook) and the remainder less R$10 by card. They then tried to charge us this missing R$10 plus R$1.33 for a telephone call which we did not make. We both only use mobiles! After about 20 minutes in reception we paid the R$1.33 only as we were now late and left... will not return. It is only a small amount of money but very annoying paying for something you did not do.

In conclusion stay at Transamerica The Advance instead which is very close.

La Residence is an excellent value, above all. A great location, the property is comfortable and clean. My room had a kitchenette, desk, writing table, and a comfortable bed. The room was basic, but attractive. Internet was free, but requires ethernet. Wifi only available in the lobby. Service was cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was good, with fresh fruits and breads. The area is full of great shops and restaurants.
