“A good place to crash - and that's it”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Spent 3 nights there with my girlfriend last March. My first impression was not so good as I felt the room was a bit dark and there was only one small window, also the carpet makes the air heavier and for me, more difficult to breathe. I can't complain about the bed, it was wide and comfortable. I didn't have any problem with the air conditioning system and the shower was good as well. The TV system was a bit disappointing as some of the channels were not available despite the TV menu said they were. They have free wi-fi, which was definitely a pro. Breakfast was good, but the check-out was terrible, took me 20 minutes to settle everything in a quiet Saturday morning.

The hotel is well maintained with clean rooms and bathrooms. The breakfast is very good with good variety of food. The staff is very kind and thoughtful. The location is safe and it s near the Faria Lima subway station (about 4 squares).

I stayed at the Golden Tower for 4 nights at the start of a longer stay in São Paulo. I thought it was a great hotel... the location was in a nice neighborhood that's safe to walk around in, near markets and reasonably priced shopping.

I have nothing negative to say about the hotel, and I stayed in both the standard and upgraded rooms during my stay, both of which are fine, although the slightly pricier rooms have a large bed (the standard room came with 2 single beds), a flatscreen TV, and a nicer shower, but both were satisfactory. The rooms were clean and have a safe, cable TV with English channels, and room service. The gym is small but it has a great view of the city. The staff were also very friendly and all spoke excellent English. And breakfast is included. And free Wifi!!!

I'd say consider the price of most hotel rooms in SP, the Golden Tower is a good value.

My only advice would be that it is a bit out of the way if you are primarily going to be downtown in the Centro or around Av. Paulista... but for the price, it's worth it, and located near both metro and bus stops.

The hotel has excellent facilities. The room is spacious and very comfortable. Part of bathing could be improved. The bed is very comfortable. The hotel in general is very beautiful. The only problem is that the front desk staff is not friendly. The breakfast is reasonable but the problem is that the restaurant has a good exhaust system. That way, when they cook a scrambled egg for breakfast, you'll be smelling food. But I recommend the hotel, is very good if you make a business trip.

I was in Sao Paulo from 7th to 11th for taking a course, then my company chose this one because it was really close to FIA (it's about 5 minutes of walking) . I like this hotel, because i don't have to take a cab for going to my course (i'm quitte affraid of sao paulo traffic jam) and because it's in a pleasant area, where you could find many stores, restaurants and other services without need taking a cab/bus.

I like my room (603), it had space enough for me, and i could sleep very well, no much noise, but i think the bathroom was too small ...

The breakfast was good too..
Time for check-in/check-out isn't so long...so i really like this hotel, and next time in São Paulo i would like to stay there again...
