Upon arrival I was being charged 50 reais extra because I had only booked for 1 person the receptionist said. Which was not true, I had the booking with me. This is the second time this happens to me in São Paulo. It is as if this is standard practice in Brazil. A quick buck on the side!! Rooms; nothing...

This is more of a business hotel than a vacation one. Rooms are average with provision of basic amenities. Breakfast was fine. I stayed for just 2 nights so it was ok. Good for the price that i got. Staff was courteous. Good location. Bars, mall and paulista avenue are at walking distances.

I spent 2 nights in this hotel and checked out to move to Hilton (to a much smaller room with a similar service quality). Good things first, the price/ quality is very good, rooms are big and clean, the fitness and pool are great, the service is good and staff are friendly. However, the negative issues far outweigh the former...

You can tell this hotel was once beautiful and modern, and it could be again. The location of this hotel is perfect, just steps away from Paulista Ave, and the staff is friendly and helpful. However, the rooms and bathrooms are pretty outdated and in need of a renovation. The mattresses are very hard, which some may like, but was...

The views and the location are perfect, the staff friendly and overall the hotel delivered on the expectations. However I Think the hotel needs an upgrade, the overall impression is that the hotel is work and dated. The orners need to invest to be able to retain the impression of luxury.

The hotel is in a very good central location. The most attractive feature is the atrium lobby. The room was spacious with 2 queen size beds. The bathroom needs renovation.

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.
