When is a hotel not a hotel? When Mercure decide so - I can't see any major difference between this and other Mercure hotels in SP. Ok it has a kitchenette, but that's about it - no coffee machine, which might be related to the fact that the "hotel" has a restaurant and serves breakfast and other meal.! The "luxury" of a minibar by no means compensates.
Wi-Fi included free - well done Accor!! But, connection seemed flaky - initially good but then nothing. Is this a Brazilian problem, or a cunning Accor plan to get customers upgrading to a "premium" service, which was advertised but I never saw the details - I have my suspicions.
The hotel is well-located just off the Avda Paulista, with a number of restaurants in range, although you may wish to get a taxi as the area is very hilly. Service was good, but I would not have wanted to check in behind the huge tour group who arrived just after me.
I was paying well over £ 100 per night, but that seems to be the norm in SP and Rio. Brazil, you have to get your act sorted out before the Olympics, World Cup etc, which are suddenly going to inundate you with people who cannot afford the top range hotels , but who are looking for affordable accommodation, with good levels of service.
