Great hotel, best location for tourists

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 18, 2013

Great, elegant hotel with all a five-star could offer. Located near the Paulista avenue, it is a great option for tourists, close to pubs, restaurants and metro stations at walking distance. Not for budget trip lovers, though.

Unique Quality: - best location;
- confortable rooms;
- good service and breakfast;
- free wi-fi.

Directions: Near Paulista Avenue

Amazing hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 22, 2010

Simply amazing stay. This hotel has it all in terms of amendities. The location is close to the financial district, many restaurants and some shopping too.

I took a massage while I was there and it was one of the most professional and best ones I ever had. The spa and gym are top notch.

While english seems to not be widely spoken in Sao Paulo, the staff there did their best and even helped me pick up some Portuguese phrases so I wouldn't look like a complete dummy.

The sushi restaurant was excellent and staff very attentive.

Please keep in mind, as I was part of a student group, I don't have any pricing information.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Unique Quality: Excellent gym and spa. The hotel was recently remodelled and is now part of the Marriot chain. Modern and elegant.

Directions: Financial district

Disclaimer - I'm a Marriott fan [platinum]

The location is excellent, walking distance to many, many restaurants (both high budget & very low budget], pharmacies & general shopping. For upscale dining Figueira (the fig tree) has a 250 year old fig tree growing through the resaurant. There are many more upscale restaurants less than a $10US cab ride away.

For low-end eating, walk down Rua Augusta [a recent all-I-could-stand lunch cost me $4 US].

For the adult male, Rua Augusta has many American Bars, Sauna Mistas & similar establishments, about a 10 minute walk towards the downtown area [come out the front of the hotel, turn right on Alameda Santos, go to the first street (r. Augusta) & turn left. If you turn right down the hill you'll enter the more upscale shopping districts. Also for the adult male - the Renaissance is very guest friendly, as are most hotels in SP.

If you can get upgraded to the club floor, there are several ethernet connections for your laptop [N/C], free breakfast, free snacks at dinner, a happy hour in the evening, nice sweets in the afternoon & great views of the otherwise non-picturesque city.

If you can get upgraded to a junior suite, you'll have substantially more room & a picture window above the bath tub. The standard rooms with two double beds are a little cramped & there's no easy chair to enjoy the TV from.

Although the area is reportedly very dicey at night I had no problems. But I also left my wallet, passport & most of my money in the in-room safe just in case.

One VERY LARGE caveat: DO NOT use the hotel phone for ANY calls. A recent call to the US that lasted 10 - 12 minutes cost R$330 or about $181 US. A local call can easily cost you $10 or $20 US. And a recent laundry job [4 prs socks, 3 shirts, one pr pants] was R$118.00 or about $65US. Yes, this will cause me much grief on my expense report..

Finally, the cost for the room can vary like the wind. my last trip was about $240 US, the first $190 US and my next trip (next week) is $160US per night [with AAA discount].

Directions: Garden District, adjacent to both upscale shopping and seedy adult areas, depending upon which way you walk.

Good Hotel in Good Neighborhood

This is a great hotel that mostly caters to business travelers. It is in the Jardins neighborhood a block away from the metro and Avenida Paulista. Very upscale location with lots of shopping and convenience. The staff speaks great english and if you can get a high floor you'll have a great view of the city.

Unique Quality: Confortable
Great Bathrooms
Great Neighborhood

Directions: Jardim Paulista

Good Hotels and Affordable Prices

Renaissance is probably Sao Paulo´s best hotel, located by the financial heart of the city, Paulista Avenue. This region hosts most of the city´s top hotels, like Sheraton, Melia, among many others. If you prefer cheaper accomodation, try one of the many Accor Hotels (French company) like Ibis, Novotel or Mercure. Quality Suites is all over the city too. Blue Tree Flats is a good option... it´s cheap and very good.
