HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 October 2016 via mobile

Excellent service, fantastic breakfast, great room and nice view from the room. The staff remembered my name "Donna Angelica", and I felt like home. Actually we spent more time at the hotel than expected just because we thought it was so nice.

A lovely boutique hotel with a European feel. Quite small, so this has some minuses with regard to facilities and service. It wasn't always easy to find someone to give assistance. Well-located just off the Avenida Paulista. More for leisure than business since the wifi was poor and there were minimal powerpoints for devices.

I wanted to give this hotel a great rating. The location is right off the Main Street. The breakfast was the best we had on our Brazilian trip. The wifi was free. It is a nice small hotel. I'm sure anyone who reads this next part will not believe this happened but I can't make this up. We came back...

It really doesn't get much better than this! We loved this hotel. Firstly, it has a really good, but quiet, location, just off Avenida Paulista. The airport shuttle bus stops 50m away, just round the corner (outside the Maksoud Hotel) and there are two underground stations close by - Trianon/Masp and Brigadeiro (Green line 2). The room was lovely and...

We started our Brazil trip in style! We stayed at the more than wonderful L’Hotel Porto Bay. After a quick check-in we were guided to our room and it was more than we could ask for after a long day and night of traveling. The first two days, we didn’t do anything except enjoying all the facilities the hotel has...

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. Comfortable bed and a great shower. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was brilliant. The location is really great just a very short walk from Avenue Paulista. There is a fabulous park close to the hotel just off Ave. Paulista which is well worth exploring.

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighbourhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
