“Old but excellent hotel”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

I stayed 1 week and everything was very good. Breakfast is included and it's simply fantastic. Very good restaurant options. I had complimentary internet and it was very good. Gym is ok.
Staff was helpful and friendly.
Room was spacious.
Everything looks old but in perfect conditions.
Room service was excellent too.

We stayed here 4 nights whilst attending the Expo Centre. The hotel was fabulous.... Amazing service and always with lots of smiles. Extremely clean and I'm a fussy one for that!!! Comfy beds, good bathrooms, great gym and amazing breakfasts!! I could go on and on.... Very happy with our stay and rate here. The only thing it could have is a little shop for snacks, magazines and drinks etc considering the location has no shops close by that you'd want to walk to. Definitely would stay here again.

Hotel is located next to Transamerica expo center and there´s van transport between hotel and expo center so it is easily reached. Breakfast was marvellous, also restaurant served excellent dinners. Rooms are spacy. Also safety seems to be tajen seriously here which is very important in Sao Paulo. Everywhere you go have to take a taxi for safety reasons what is a pity since I never met more friendly people than in Brazil.

Stayed here this week on business whilst visiting a sister company located not far away. Great hotel - can't really fault anything. Food excellent ( especialy the freshly cooked omelettes ), room good size and very clean. Clearly this hotel caters more for business needs - there were a couple of conferences here at the time, including a launch of a new BIC pen ( WOW !!! ). Must have the smallest golf course in the world with three holes, but no matter - the Transamerica is great.

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.

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.

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.
