“Decent hotel, great location.”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

You can't beat the location and the hotel is decent. Not 5 stars, by any means, but acceptable. You need to adjust your standards in Brazil and subtract a star or two when looking at their ratings. I may stay again if I come back on my World Cup trip.

A nice hotel and very friendly staff. However the rooms were cold and we had to ask for a heater.
Also one of my colleagues asked for an ironing board several times and it never came.
Our room stank of heavy smoke and despite air freshener and opening windows it lingered for days .it was supposed to be a no smoking room.
Breakfast was good but the hotel would be vastly improved with a pool.

Room Tip: Rooms are much better on the 12 th floor than lower floors. Nice little kilt hen area.

The only downside is that it is not so cheap.
The location is superb, right on Avenida Paulista next to the metro. The staff were very helpful too. At first I had a room with a bad view, but when I asked they switched me on the second day to one that has a view of the main street which looks pretty cool at night. They have multiple power sockets for plugs which can be quite useful. Some taxi drivers seem not to know it as Melia as I think it had another name before...

We arrived at the Hotel Melia on Paulista avenue after a month of backpacking in Bolivia. We were on our way home to the UK and were on the last of our clean clothes, so slightly different to the majority of smart business people staying there!! The room was quite small but very clean and the sheets were wonderfully crisp and new and we slept well. The location is excellent and a short walk to Sao Paulo Museum of Art. The staff were all most pleasant and did not look down at us in our ragedy clothes! We had a very nice stay for two nights here.

This hotel is situated on Avenue Paulista in São Paulo which a great central location. The hotel offers complimentary breakfast which was very enjoyable and consistent of continental and omelettes etc. the rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The bathroom has a large shower cubicle but no bath tub. The hotel is a little dated in decor but overall is great value. There is a very small gym on the 1st Floor which had 2 running machines and 1 bike & 1 cross trainer.

Very good central location, my room was very spacious, quiet, comfortably furnished with a very small bathroom. good shower and no bath....good standard amenities/toiletries in the room..

No Bar area but only a small area in the Lobby with limited choice of drinks and very unwelcoming, breakfast room, typical basic Brazilian spread in a very school dinner type of atmophere...ikea wonderland.
Gym very tiny with very little equipment and the few machines were not working properly.....don t waste any time...it is a waste of (little space)....
Nowhere to sit outside, no swimming pool no outside area...
Would use again this properrty if the price was right and needed minimum rest time in an hotel..

Room Tip: The higher the quieter..
