After flying for more than 24h to reach Sao Paulo we were tired and exhausted. We arrived very early in the morning at Hotel Unique and the whole ambiance in the hotel is immediately soothing. Check in is done whilst being seated and drinks were immediately offered. Maria from the front desk was checking us in and she made the whole stay truly memorable. She offered us an early check in and immediately gave us tips on what to see and where to eat in Sao Paulo. Also throughout our stay she was checking on us if everything went well and also gave us some more tips for great places around the hotel.
The hotel design is indeed unique and is quite stunning. The pool on the roof is breathtaking and we went swimming every morning. The water is also heated so that the morning swim was not unbearable. The rooms whilst not terribly big were well appointed and had all the amenities one would expect of a five star hotel. The room was clean but you can tell that the hotel is older than 5 years as you can see some furniture etc is no longer state of the art. This did not disturb me though and I very much enjoyed the room. However there was some road noise if you have a room facing the park. However I was not terribly bothered by it. We had a meal in the hotel restaurant and the food was interesting and good. However I would not rate it as being excellent and during our South America trip we had much better food at cheaper places.
The hotel in general is not cheap but if you get a good deal or can use corporate rates it is worth it.
Safety is very important to the hotel and you need the key card to even enter the lift and the door man always made sure we got a good taxi and they recorded all taxis entering the hotel. The door man was very friendly and always looked after us well.
One minor thing I would like to give feedback on is that the complimentary water bottles are very very tiny (less than 300ml) and this is something where the hotel can afford to be more generous.
I would definitely stay at Hotel Unique again if I go to Sao Paulo.
