Overall it was a good stay, with some points to improve. I stayed for several days, and they put me in a room facing the VERY noisy elevators. The elevator arrival alarm on the floors greatly disturbed the days I needed to work at the hotel and my sleep on some nights. Breakfast is basic. It doesn't have many options, but it's honest. I couldn't eat the fruits any day because they had an "old" appearance. Service was generally good and very polite. The hotel's location is simply fantastic. Several bars, cafes, shops, grocery stores, and cool places are nearby. You can do something new every day in that region. It has easy access to the subway, and I didn't have much difficulty getting an Uber or taxi when I needed it. The shower was good, but depending on the day, from around 7:30 am to 8:15 am, it was impossible to get hot water out of it. Probably because the demand was too high, but keep that in mind, as it can impact your schedule. When I arrived, the sink in my bathroom wasn't 100% clean, which caused me some discomfort, but it wasn't so severe that I couldn't solve it myself. There was a delay in the checkout because the clerk was very committed to helping another customer, which I accept in this case.

The good location (5 min walk to Av. Paulista) is priced in. The room was more or less shabby, but clean and enough space. Friendly staff but with poor knowledge of English. The pool is small but ok. The breakfast buffet is rather mediocre, every day the same food. Concerning safety be carfull someone tried to get twice my Credit card no. via the room telephone.
