Hotel Transamerica Sao Paulo
Ranked #16 of 326 Hotels in Sao Paulo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Hotel Transamerica is an almost 30 year old hotel in Sao Paulo but extremely well kept and already a classic in this city. Its interiors mixes classic furniture with state of art modern appliances like Internet on TV Screen and a superby wi-fi network in all interior and exterior areas of the hotel (something rare to find in most Brazilian hotels, where the wi-fi signal fluctuates with the location).
The rooms were recentely remodeled, with a very chaming and cosy decoration....great room space even in standard rooms, nice bathroom and option of a vinyl flooring in some rooms.
During your stay, enjoy the best spa area in Sao Paulo, with a mini golf course, a great heated swimming pool and full gym.....ah, do not miss the "Pudim" (pudding), that is considered one of the best in Brazil for this typical Brazilian dessert.

Dear Mr. AlexPira,
Thank you for staying at the Hotel Transamérica São Paulo, your opinion is very important for us to continue improving our services.
As mentioned above, the hotel is in fact 27 year old and to celebrate we are renovating all our rooms, as well as the event rooms, to keep up with the new technologies.
Thank you for all your compliments about the hotel, the leisure areas and to the "Pudim". It is very satisfying to know that our guests feel comfortable in the Hotel Transamerica.
Once again, thank you and we hope to host you more times.

I've been to the Transamerica a few times on business. Nice hotel, comfortable rooms, and a pretty good hotel restaurant. Internet works well across the property. The location is not where you want to be for tourist type activities, but it's well suited for business travel.

Dear Mrs. Karolyn_24,
Thank you for staying at the Hotel Transamérica São Paulo, your opinion is very important for us to continue improving our services.
It is very satisfying to know that our guests are happy, but allow me to mention that we are currently passing through renovations in our rooms, and many other areas, to best serve you.
As you said, the Hotel site is not favorable for tourists in holidays, therefore we offer many different sightseeing tours around the city, next time please look for our Concierge.
Once again thank you for your comment.
Best regards.

I recently stayed at the property to attend an international conference at the nearby Transamerica Expo Center. The hotel was on a nice property; however, it was far from local attractions, restaurants, etc. Excellent swimming pool, bar area, and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was available throughout the hotel thus making it convenient to retrieve emails and call home with mobile Skype.

Dear Mr. Samuel A.
Thank you for staying at the Hotel Transamérica São Paulo. Your feedback is very important for us, so that we can improve our services.
The Hotel is indeed far from downtown, however it is nearby some commercial areas, that is our main clients. The Expocenter is located just around the Hotel area, making easier for our guests, we are also happy to know that you have enjoyed our leisure area and restaurants.
It’s very pleasant to know you have spent a great time here with us, and we hope to host you again more times, in addition, we are glad to inform you that the internet service was recently upgraded to best suit our guests.
Once again, thank you.

This is my second stay at the Transamerica in São Paulo. My Wi-FI worked all over the hotel, so I could make Skype calls anywhere in the hotel. Enjoyed breakfasts in the restaurant and a quiet dinner in the bar (with music videos on the TV). Their convention space was ideal for the conference.

It's a good place to stay if you are going to the Transamerica Expo, or a show nearby. If not, is far from every other thing in Sao Paulo.
Somewhat old rooms but good resources for a conference or business.

Room Tip: North tower is closer to gym and breakfast. South is closer to convention center

Stayed at the Hotel Transamerica on a recent business trip to Sao Paulo. The hotel was very business friendly, reliable wifi, a good selection of restaurants on the property, and no children. The food at each of the restaurants was excellent. I even ended up conducting a few meetings on site in the lounge, which proved to be a very productive environment (day and night). There were always Red & White cabs readily available (the most trustworthy cabs in Brazil). The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms large and nicely appointed, and the service from start to finish was excellent. Next time I hope to try the golf course that adjoined the property - rare for a city hotel in Brazil. I definitely would return.

Room Tip: If possible, get a view towards the golf course.

Dear Guest,
Firstly, we from the Hotel Transamerica São Paulo would like to thank you for your stay and for completing our guest satisfaction research.
I would like to clarify that our apartments were all made to accommodate two people, though in some exceptions we provide a third bed. Our beds are all above standard as well as mattresses, which are high-level.
The eiderdowns follow the same number of beds, so the extra bed is made up with sheet, blanket and bedspread Piquet.
Once again thank you for your comment and we hope to host you many more times.
