I enjoy the mid sized hotels with quality service. This was just right for the value and offering. Staff was efficient and helpful at check in; they managed the currency exchange, directions to mall, and got us the rooms at the morning check in prior to noon.
The area has the big park and a busy avenue to walk but it is not quite commercial enough to have many restaurants /shops nearby. One really needs a car or to take a taxi to go anywhere. The advantage of being near Paulista Ave is having all the eating/shopping/nightlife nearby. Then again, you get that noise and traffic. The Mercure had the right blend of quality, suburban feel, and just enough removed from the city to feel a relaxed vibe. The lobby is not large but every area has a quality feel or design to it: bar, cafe nook, room is spacious, etc.
The cafe /bakery was quite awesome in pastries and coffee. The full breakfast was good but not fantastic in food quality and service. Overall, the price on food was a bit high these days in Brazil, the room cost was ok, and same for taxi. Inflation is hitting Brazil and prices are too high for general services, in my opinion.
