This is a decent budget hotel in a good location - not a luxury hotel by any stretch of the imagination. Lobby and dining area are cramped with the breakfast being very average. Rooms are small but reasonably well presented - air conditioning unit is old but works. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Not meeting basic hygiene requirements, there were yellow urine stains of the previous guest in front of the toilet bowl on the bathroom floor. Whatever star rating a hotel maybhave, this is unacceptable anywhere.

Dear Mr. Silvio, We appreciate your feedback and wish there were no misunderstandings. We clarify that yellowish stain may be because of the use of some product used for cleaning and not necessarily urine. We will check the apartment you have been with us and guide our governance team regarding the procedures during the cleaning of the accommodations, and we...

Location is good and from there you can walk to shops, have a coffee and the museum. Staff is friendly but the room is very basic. Someone tried to fluff it up with black and white photographs but it has a depressing quality. Dark and old furniture, small beds, dreary hallways and noisy. In the small bathroom is a vent...

All I could ask for in a hotel for a work trip. I had my 2 very young children with me, and the staff from the reception to the restaurant to the cleaning staff were EXTREMELY gracious, accommodating, and warm. The breakfast buffet had varied healthy options, and the few occasions when I was there for lunch, the salad bar...

I could simply advise any TripAdvisor reader simply to avoid this hotel and leave it at that but I feel I would be doing the travel community a disservice - and being generous to this sorry excuse for a hotel. The enjoyment begins with an unnecessarily long, protracted and inefficient check-in by staff who would clearly rather be somewhere else,...

The hotel is clean and the rooms have everything you need. Even a small kitchen part is installed in the room. The bathroom is small with a shower, lavatory and sink. 2 single beds and a small TV.

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
