Nice clean hotel located near Paulista Avenue. The only thing that I didn't like was the room design. Old furniture. But I think its ok in general. Other than that the gym is nice and it has a pool as well.

A very fancy looking and handling hotel, where the guests are treated like kings. They speak good English and always carry a smile and ready to assist. Good entertainment and great rooms, clean and super nice. From the inside: a very impressing building.

I stayed at Maksoud for a night last while I was visiting SP. The hotel has an amazing lobby and architecture that evokes grandeur. The rooms are large, clean and excellent. The one thing that stands out about this hotel is the fantastic service. I would highly recommend staying here. The bar Frank is amazing!

I stayed at Maksoud for a night while in Sao Paulo. The check-in was quick and easy, and the staff were very helpful with the room and amenities. The lobby bar, "Frank" is the best bar ever.. great mixology!

Upon arrival I was being charged 50 reais extra because I had only booked for 1 person the receptionist said. Which was not true, I had the booking with me. This is the second time this happens to me in São Paulo. It is as if this is standard practice in Brazil. A quick buck on the side!! Rooms; nothing...

This is more of a business hotel than a vacation one. Rooms are average with provision of basic amenities. Breakfast was fine. I stayed for just 2 nights so it was ok. Good for the price that i got. Staff was courteous. Good location. Bars, mall and paulista avenue are at walking distances.

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighbourhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
