Reviewed 20 May 2013

i stayed a week on business. the hotel is very very old had a scare in one of the elevators. i had to laugh about my room, i had three single beds, very old furnature, shower flooded bathroom because of the sliding doors to the shower did not keep the wáter from leaking out. i recomend bringing your own body cream, shampoo and conditioner. Quality of the hotels was very low. NO Irons..ups, i am used to going to a hotel with Irons. breakfast was excelent., internet was very had to get connected to .I would stay again because of the location if i had to return to that particular área. staff friendly but they never called me for a wake up call to get to the airport for my return flight.

I had a reservation of three or four nights but I stayed only one night, I could not stay there.

The room is very very tiny, almost claustrophobic, and completely outdated. There was no more than one or two steps around the bed, result: it was very hard to open the baggage. The TV was a special chapter: it was a tube TV of 12" or 14", with unbearable noise, I could not even listen to the sound. The bathroom was spacious but very old too.

The breakfast was average.

Summarizing, the only good thing is the location, if you want to stay close to the Paulista Avenue.

Prezado Sr. Renato, informamos que o Century possui dois tipos de apartamento, o executivo (menor) e o luxo (maior) os quais só diferem pelo tamanho e o valor da diária. Os apartamentos foram recém reformados e, neste mês de sua hospedagem as TVS encontravam-se em processo de troca. Hoje já estamos com todas as TVs de LED. Sugerimos, em sua próxima estada ocupar o apartamento luxo, pois de acordo com o título de sua mensagem, acima de 95% dos nossos hóspedes não se desapontam com nossas acomodações e serviços.
Obrigado pela opinião.

If you wnat to stay close to Avenida Paulista and don't mind to walk 7 minutes to get to the tubes, this is a good option because, in this area, the hotels are way more expensive. But, for sure, its not a 4-star hotel, it's a 2, at top. The rooms is small, but I found everything very clean and organize, room service was ok, tv have international channels and the price of amenities like water, soda and chocolate bars are very good. In a budget, I would stay again, but for sure you can find better choices around.

Prezado Sr. Nilson,
Agradecemos pela contribuição em avaliar nossos serviços.
Temos a informar que a classificação do hotel é regida pela matriz de classificação hoteleira, onde o Century preenche os pré-requisitos da classificação 4 estrelas.
E sua opinião é muito bem colocada em afirmar que os nossos preços são melhores do que todos os hotéis da região, por isso nosso título "quatro estrelas econômico".
Quanto às acomodações, sugerimos reservar o apartamento luxo em sua próxima estada, pois ficará em um apartamento muito mais amplo, até no padrão 5 estrelas, por um preço de 2 estrelas.
Obrigado

I'm not one to write reviews on the internet, but felt compelled to write about this place. Of all the international traveling I have done, this place is by far the worst. Every last detail about this detail spells cheap and outdated. I have seen youth hostels with better amenities and service than this place, for much cheaper price.Starting with the front desk staff, who seem to have perfected the art of indifference in a country of the friendliest people on earth. They don't speak a word of English, and don't even try to understand what your saying with hand gestures or improvised Portuguese. Room service is very likely hang up on you if they don't understand you rather than understand what you are saying. I understand that not everyone in world speaks English, but come on, at least try and understand what yr guest is saying.The room is tiny, with about one foot walking space around the bed. There is no place to put your suitcase. The TV is a 12" tube( yup those still exist), with most channels missing. There was one METAL chair (seriously!!!) with the a removable (or broken, depending on yr perspective) seat. Very cheap and outdated wall desk, with an almirah that smelled of moth balls, with really cheap plastic hangers. No iron in the room (in fairness, that might be a Brazilian thing) and no prospect of getting one. All lighting is flourescent. Then there is the mini bar fridge, a fine soviet contraption that also doubles as an alarm clock...if you ever need to be woken up 7 times in a night. The assigned alarm clock however, wouldn't turn on. Now we go to the bathroom. Frayed and dirty towels, or clasically antique once used by Pele to wipe his butt. Mysterious knob that sticks out of the wall near the sink, where you set the temperature of the water before stepping into the shower. The shower leaks, flooding the rest of the bathroom, as the water tries to drain off for the rest of the morning. Test your reflexes as you struggle to control the flow and temperature of the water without either freezing or scalding yourself. Refresh yourself with soap treated with specks of the finest Brazilian industrial dirt.The internet is R$20 for all of the 15 mins that it is usable in 24 hrs. And if you can't stand to stay in your room, enjoy dubious sushi at a Restaurant Cipriani's. (Go figure!!!) I wouldn't be so tough on this hotel if it weren't charging my client R$220 a night.Like I said, I have been to some crappy hotels, but none had the arrogance to charge this much. Luckily i got to move to the Mercure today. Much cheaper and waayyyyy nicer.

Room Tip: get in cab ask to go to mercure or capital.

Infelizmente entendemos como um exageiro desnecessário por parte do Sr. Vinzak de Dallas, Texas.
Quanto ao staff não falar inglês, informamos que reformulamos a equipe e a grande maioria está habilitado a falar o idioma. Referente aos apartamentos, o hotel possui duas categorias, o STD de 13m2 e o luxo de 26m2, o que diferem é o tamanho e consequentemente o preço. Caso a opção seja por um apartamento mais econômico, certamente a acomodação é feita no apartamento menor. As TVS foram todas trocadas por LED 22" e com 60 canais da NET, inclusive Telecines e canais internacionais, o frigobar e o ar condicionado também foram trocados. Quanto ao enxoval, periodicamente é trocado de acordo com o desgaste e se eventualmente fora encontrada alguma peça em desacordo, há serviço de governança 24 hs por dia a disposição para atendimento e troca.
Cremos que um hotel que atende a 6500 hóspedes por mês, mais 3000 participantes de eventos, e mais 2000 pessoas de público flutuante mensalmente e com nível de aceitação acima de 90% não seja merecedor de uma crítica tão severa e isolada.
Outrossim, nós da gerência de relação com cliente fazemos questão de novamente atender o Sr. Viznak, acomodá-lo em padrão superior, apresentá-lo as melhorias feitas para possa assim apagar a impressão negativa causada. Pois em 2011 houve somente esta reclamação sobre a estrutura do hotel. Logo, entendemos que algo pontualíssimo ocorreu com este distinto hóspede.
agradecemos a valiosa oportunidade de melhoria que foi nos dada através desta opinião e estejam certos de que todas as providências foram tomadas para sanar as observações apontadas.

Atenciosamente,

I'm trying to call a friend who's in Brazil for work and I've tried calling twice to get transferred to his room. First time, the guy said no speak English. So, I looked up the translation of "transfer me to the room of senor whatever" in portuguese and called back. The idiot left me waiting with some crappy music playing and was wasting my minutes so I hung up. WOW, what a dump if you have people in the hospitality industry who can't understand basic hotel english! Even illegal Mexicans learn a bit of English to get by here. These people don't even try...

O hotel passou por uma reformulação de staff e a grande maioria do front desk é recepcionista com conhecimentos em inglês. Desta forma, entedemos ter sido um caso isolado que não compromete a qualidade dos serviços prestados em hospedagem, alimentação e eventos.
Agradecemos pela opinião e esperamos ve-lo novamente no hotel para que esta má impressão seja apagada.

Dear Mr. Mike,

Thanks for the compliments to Century, confirming the quality of our services. We know that all opinions are valid, because provide us opportunities for improvement. We fully agree with your comments, as there are often greatly exaggerated criticism by sitações simple. But it behooves us to thank everyone, fix the problems really relevant, lamenting the hype and reiterate our thanks to customers like Mr. cordial
Thank you,
Sincerely,

Stayed here with a group of friends for 1 night - and we tried to make the night very long so we didn't have to stay here for too long. The rooms are extra tiny, we only traveled with 2 hand luggage suitcases but had problems putting them somewhere in the room. Everything's very old, the lobby has the charme of a 1970s train station restaurant, most cab drivers took ages finding the hotel. Location however is quite good, but in the middle of a residential area, so if you stay here, it's absolutely crucial to take a map from the hotel to show the taxi drivers where to go. Overall, not an experience I would want to repeat, especially not for 210 Reales a night (100 USD).

O Century possui dois padrões de apartamento o STD de 13m2 eo Luxo com 26m2. Certamente o luxo atenderia melhor à necessidade de muita bagagem. Estas informações de tamanho constam em todos os portais de reservas e estamos a disposição também para adicionar informações que se fizerem necessárias.
A localização do hotel é no bairro do Paraiso, coração financeiro de SP, a 500m da Av. Paulista, a 5ª avenida de SP. Mesmo para alguém de fora do país, não dificuldade alguma em chegar, esceto se motoristas de táxi tiverem alguma intensão que não levar o cliente diretamente ao destino.
A tarifa de US$ 100, é o valor abaixo dos hotéis da região.
Agradecemos pela colaboração e nos colocamos a inteira disposição.
