George V Alto de Pinheiros Hotel
Ranked #167 of 326 Hotels in Sao Paulo
Reviewed March 11, 2012

There were only 2 hotels in the area not sold out at the time of my booking and this was one of them. Now I know why.

1. The location is horrible and only 1 out of 7 taxis knew how to get here so be sure to bring a map of the surrounding area for your driver.

2. I had to call the front desk regarding trouble connecting to the Internet service 5 times during just a 2 night stay. Tech support would call back a short while later where they would say they changed some settings, but even then the connectivity was very poor.

3. There are no vending machines and no store to grab a drink or a snack, so you are forced to either venture out (nothing really close by) or eat/drink what is already in your room.

4. For a 5-star hotel, the breakfast buffet is not anywhere up to standards. Basically just scrambled eggs, fruit and pastries. I would have expected at least waffles, pancakes or maybe an omelet station.

The room itself was very nice although the mattress was extremely firm. No complaints there. It would have been nice if there was some sort of business center. Just a small pool and fitness center in small rooms, a small lobby and the restaurant. It seemed like a safe area though.

Instead of having a simple hotel room one has a walk-in closet, a bedroom, a small living area and a small kitchen as well. Nice interior and neatly setup. Perfect for a longer stay in Sao Paulo. The breakfast buffet is okay, but I have had better in Brazil. There is room for improvement in regards to the selection. But overall a nice breakfast buffet. The staff is friendly, at the reception well capable of English and very helpful. I prefer this place over many other hotels with simple hotel rooms.

Room Tip: The rooms are all quite similar and even next to the elevator one does not hear any noise.

I have stayed here several times, and every time has been very positive. Friendly and attentive staff, comfortable, spacious and modern rooms. Breakfast is good (not fantastic, but OK), and the location is very convenient. There are several good places to eat within walking distance (a great pizza restaurant just a couple of blocks away) and it is easy to reach.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the front are nicer and have a big balcony.

Very nice hotel. I've been here twice in January on business trip.

Location is ok, close to Praca Pan Americana and not to far from some very nice bars and restaurants.

The rooms are spacious, nice walkthrough closet with the bathroom behind. Good bathroom, separate bath and shower. The room has a nice living room, kitchen and balcony. Didn't use the pool facility. The breakfast is included but not spectacular, although not bad either. The waiters are very friendly but not speaking any English.

Downsides: No free wifi, no iron board in the room. (but there is off course laundry service and a drycleaner next door)

However, I would really recommend this hotel to my collegues!

We traveled here from the US so my husband could lecture at USP. The hotel was very comfortable. The view from the balcony was beautiful. We stayed for a week. The staff was very fast and efficient, not to mention very kind and courteous. They were especially so when it came to getting cabs for us to travel. They always had drivers who were quick and inexpensive.
The food was excellent, with a good variety. The suite was spacious, modern and very clean. It's location is good if you want to go mall shopping or to the university.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor and found it very quiet. There was no noise from outside or from neighbo...

Quick review of a very good apartment style business hotel in Pinheiros. (Note this is not located in the center of Sao Paulo -- nor is it located near Avenida Paulista. Its approximately 20 minutes in a cab to those areas). This hotel is fairly close to Vila Magdalana and the big shopping malls (Igautami is about 5 minutes in cab). Strongly recommended--especially if you have business in that area of the huge city.

The George IV hotel in Pinheiros is great. I have lived close to the hotel for a year (as I am married to a brazilian). There are a few good restuarants and bars nearby and you are close enough to the business district and other frequented areas so well located. My family have stayed here in large numbers a few times before and they have thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The rooms are very spacious, modern, comfortable and clean. There is a good selection of food available. Most importantly the staff there really look after you. As all my family don't speak Portuguese and a lot of the staff there speak English they had plenty of requests thrown at them! They are really helpful and go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your stay. If you are staying in Sao Paulo on business or pleasure then I would highly recommend George IV hotel
