I suspect that based on where this hotel is situated and the room rate you end up paying will dictate whether or not you rate this hotel as good, average or poor. Based on the 10 or so times I have stayed here the rate has varied considerably from visit to visit. If you are paying something in the region of 250BRL/night you'll likely judge it on the good side of ok but if you are having your wallet felt for over 500 and up to 600 BRL/night you'll very likely feel well and truly scammed and ripped off. And I have been at both ends of that spectrum with both those sentiments.
This hotel is in my opinion the better of the three all together in a cluster (an Ibis Budget and I mean Budget, an Ibis with very small and basic rooms although I have to say clean and at a good price and then this Blue Tree). It's always a busy hotel, staff are pleasant, good breakfast., overall, no complaints. Middle of the road. Nothing really endears trhis place but nothing condemns it either. It's a standard mid range hotel. Be careful of the Lobby bar prices, as it sells you drink at sky high prices (bottled beer starting at 20BRL/bottleand above) so if you want to have a beer walk round the corner and go up to the Ibis next door and no more than pay half that for exactly the same brand of product :-).
The rooms are clean tidy and adequate but many show signs of more than reasonable wear and tear for the age of the hotel. Maintenance of the rooms is overall below what similar European hotels would class as an an acceptable standard, for example in the various rooms I have stayed inover the last 12 months I have encountered (and in no particular order) damaged and broken shower heads and taps, leaky shower cabinets, badly marked walls and broken skirting boards, cracked washbasins, broken bedside lampshades, once a flooded bathroom, badly damaged toilet roll holders and metal soap dishes and lights not working in various guises. Bathroom towels/linen are of medium to poor quality and always on the thin side - but they do the job - just. Some of the non-smoking rooms have been allowed to be used by smokers as the burn marks on the furniture will testify and if the whiff if stale tobacco as you walk in hasn't already given the game away. The expensive snails pace wifi has in the past been a big issue for me but on this occasion it ppears to be working better so maybe they have upgraded it (however I have yet on this trip to try streaming something other than internet radio...).
Lift speeds and availability in the morning can be a big p1$$ me off judging by many of the reactions of frustration and angst I have witnessed to doors opening on packed lifts from those staying on a lower floor, and in this regard you may need to be patient...or ask for a high floor room which is also infinitely better from a street noise perspective. .
The one big plus at this hotel ( and the reason I return) is the approximity to the Morumbi Mall accros the street, where there is plentiful shopping and an abundance of eateries - for me an essential when away for over a week. If you are not going to use the mall or are happy to taxi to the mall or your nearby place of work, you may feel ( as I do) that there are better value hotels in the vicinity. This hotel is average, but it's draw is that it has location, location, location. That's what you pay for and that's what you get. The hotel is otherwise just average.
