Reviewed 9 July 2013

This is one of the worst Hotels I hve ever stayed in. I went to Brazil for business. The country, Sao Paulo and Rio are amazing and the people great - but this hotel is an exception. The staff were just plain rude - and seemed to work from the french textbook to ignore the guests. Brazil is not short of manpower and there are a lot of people working everywhere - but at the Pestana Hotel Reception would leave me waiting for ages without even acknowledging that I was there - whenever I came back to the hotel in the evening despite a number of porters or door staff hanging around - no-one smiled - no one said good evening, no-one opended the door. The room was damp - the air conditioning did not work. This was like a bad movie - compared to other Pestana Hotels which are usually nice - but the service and the attitude was really poor.

Room Tip: find a different hotel

Pestana Hotel is well located, just a few blocks away of Av.Paulista. The zone Jardim Paulista is nice. The hotel is quite old and needs renovation. Rooms are simple but all right. Check In took me 20 minutes with no reason. Price is ok considering how expansível Hotels are In this town.

Room Tip: rooms facing rua tutoia are quiter

This hotel belongs to the Pestana group but it´s not at the same level of quality and comfort.
It smells old! In the apartment everything is old and not working very well.
But the staff is always trying to help you. They´re very polite and this is the good point about this hotel.
I will not be back there.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the 14th floor

Dear Adriano

First of all thank you for the feedback provided and know that this semester we are carrying out a ambicious remake project in our Sao Paulo hotel including investments of about 1 million reais to reach the same standards that Pestana hotels have around the world as you know well about our chain. We hope to see you back then in august so you can give your opinion again with the apartments renewed and redecorated. But I am very happy on the other hand as you noticed that our service is ok and our cordiality impressed you positively.

Cordially

I have stayed in other Pestana Hotels, such as the Covento do Carmo in Salvador, and was used to a certain standard with this hotel chain. The Sao Paulo version tough is a total deception, run down rooms that havnt been fixed in over 10 years. The whole hotel is old, but the rooms is a cathastrophy: My linen had holes, the chair at the desk was dirty all spotted with probably vomit, the telephone didnt work, there is no isolation, you could here everyone passing in front of the room, as it was inside the hotelroom itself. The windows havnt been cleaned in ages, and also the street of the hotel is ugly and has nothing. Overall I cannot recomend this hotel to anyone, the price is totally overrated, its badly managed and needs and urgent overlall renovation.

I stayed in Sao Paulo for 4 days and 3 nights. It was the nicest hotel we stayed in during our visit to Brazil (previously in Rio and then Paraty) The breakfast is amazing with all the choices you could hope for. The staff was very professional and the hotel amenities were clean. The beds were comfortable, the room was big enough for the three of us (but could fit four). I'm glad we treated ourselves to staying here. The location was great as well and we could walk to many of the attractions; Parque Ibirapuera, Avenida Paulista and shopping. I highly recommend this hotel. Enjoy!

Pestana's hotels are very classy around the world... São Paulo's is not different. People are very kind from the reception frontdesk to the bellboy and so on. Went with my wife and my parents in law (over 80 years old!). All personal were so kind with the elders!
Room were clean, the fabrics great, air conditioning working and with a nice view of São Paulo City. 29 flat TV with some cable channels (not much...)
The breakfast had a lot of fruits of the season, lots of breads and loafs.... scrambled eggs, sausage and everything, you can even get a nice expresso!

at the lounge you can have a very cold draft beer at the Brahma Quiosque open through the day and night!

Room Tip: Higher floors have a nicer view of São Paulo parks (Ibirapuera)
