Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2014

I had a pleasant stay here for a couple of nights during the World Cup. The hotel is in a reasonably quite location just off Paulista. (10 minutes walk uphill). The rooms were of a good size and well maintained. I had really good breakfast with a cracking cooked to order omelette. The pool and gym were also decent. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

It was during the world cup and the price we paid (about $150 per night) was a pretty good deal. So I can't complain, but if you will be paying more, there are a few things to be aware of. The hotel is a bit old, not well maintained, the rooms are on the smaller side for what is advertised, the staff are good, not many speak english though. On the other hand, the morning buffet is great and complimentary, lots of food choices and the food is actually good. Dinner not so great though. It is close to paulista ave, about a 20 minute walk to shopping center. In summary, would recommend it of the price is on the cheap side...

Stayed here on business for 3 nights. Rooms were spacious, very comforable, clean and provide a good wifi service. Staff were excellent and very friendly and helpful and breakfast was a very good standard. Hotel is very close to Avenue Paulista but the surrounding streets are very steep fo bear this in mind when considering footwear! I would definately recommend Universe as a base whilst in Sao Paulo.

We were impressed by the size of the room, and confortable bed. The location is good, two or three blocks from Trianon-Masp metro station at av. Paulista. However, the street is steep, one needs to be aware of it. The service is not the best, they are not exaclty fast or efficient. The breakfast is quite complete, they have a separate cooker preparing fresh tapiocas or omelets. They have a 2-hour tolerance for check-out (12-14pm). The only problem I had was the frigobar bill included things we did not consume, but they immediately accepted my complaint and did not charge me at all.

The hotel is well located in a very quiet and safe residential area. Within minutes is the Avenida Paulista. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable (especially the bed). The hotel has a good restaurant with normal prices. The wi fi is good and free. The breakfast could have more quality.
