Dear Sir,
We are pleased to welcome you and to know that you enjoy our location and services. We are located in one of the main avenues in the city, where you can easily find plenty of entertainment options in the surrounding. This factor is considered a differential for many customers and we are happy to have met your needs.
The pool is a smaller area due to the public in its most executives who use the pool infrequently.Concerning the service, all our English speaking staff to serve them with quality.
Appreciate the compliments and hope you have other opportunities to be with us soon!

Very good hotel located just off Paulista - rooms are apartment style, modern well equipped.
Staff very efficient and friendly.
Wifi was reasonable and free of charge, but a little erratic
The complimentary breakfast was decent but the restaurant area can get very full early mornings.
Would definitely recommend this hotel for a leisure or business stay in Sao Paulo

Room Tip: This is a very tall hotel - ask for a room high up for great views of Sao Paulo

This is the 4th time I've stayed at the transamerica prime. It's in a good location. Close to coffee shops, restaurants, one block off the Avenida Paulista. Safe. Comfortable. Great bar with a spectacular view and 2 good restaurants. That said, the hotel is dated, tattered and needs some attention to details. Some mildew in the shower, peeling wallpaper, dirty hall carpets, and worst of all, no internet connection for 4 days. The hotel is geared for Brazilian guests but some employees speak other languages. If you need lots of help in English, you may be frustrated.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor 20-28 for the best view.

The hotel is very good in all aspects (location, rooms, cleanness, size, service, etc.) but no outstanding performance.
Is a great option in the price is good.
I was surprised with the hotel gym, which was above my expectations.

Also the Santos Boulevard is a very good region for restaurants, coffees and close enough to the major night clubs in São Paulo.

Room Tip: Higher floors are always better to noise from the streets.

Reviewed 26 December 2013

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in Dec 2013 while on a quick business trip to Sao Paulo.

The best part of this hotel is its excellent location, just one block away from Paulista Avenue, the main thoroughfare in Sao Paulo for shopping etc. The neighbourhood and street where the hotel is located is great - many restaurants and coffee shops - and also good for strolling and running with nice shady sidewalks and plenty of trees.

The property itself is sufficiently acceptable for a business traveller - decent sized, fairly clean rooms, with average beds and breakfast. The onsite restaurant is nothing to write home about with functional meals and decent service. Works well when you leave after breakfast for work and don't return till after dinner with colleagues.

.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter.

The room has a lot of space and a small kitchen with coffe maker (without coffe), refrigerator and tableware. The service is good, as well as the breakfast.
There are a lot of restaurants and stores nearby.

Spent a week at the Transamerica Prime during a recent business trip to Sao Paulo. Location of the hotel is its best asset. Just a block off Paulista avenue right in the heart of the city, within walking distance to MASP metro, lots of good restaurants, and close to multiple shopping options as well.

The rooms are comfortable but dated. Furniture is functional and in acceptable shape. I found it strange that the rooms do not offer an iron in the room. Bring your own or be ready to pay for the laundry service. Another issue with this hotel is the wifi access. It was offered at no extra cost, however it is terribly inconsistent and unreliable. The rooms do offer the use of an in-room safe. Make sure you keep all you valuables there. I left a set of headphones on the bed that were stolen by the hotel staff (really, who steals used headphones!). Be aware of your belongings at all times. Cleanliness of the room was just ok. Areas that are openly visible are kept clean. I did move some furniture around while looking for my headphones and was unpleasantly surprised to find garbage under the couch and under the beds. Obvious these parts of the room are seldom cleaned.

Service was good. Staff was not particularly friendly, yet were helpful when asked. The breakfast offered was just ok. No different than continental breakfast offerings in your typical chain hotel. The gym is decent, though half of the treadmills were turned off and/or did not work. Still not many people use it so this was not an issue.

There is really nothing special about this hotel. If it weren't for the location, I would not consider staying here again.
