The Estanplaza is located in a rather quiet business and hotel district. The staff greated me friendly and the receptionist checking me in was speaking English quite eloquently. Unfortunately, the one checking me out did not. I had to give up asking for my company's address on the bill because he just would not understand.
After landing at GRU at 6am, I arrived at the hotel at 9am, so I was mighty glad they were happy to let me into the room already and freshen up for the day.
The room was spacious enough for 1 person, bathroom could have been bigger. I liked the iron (inlc. board) in the closet. The bed was super comfy; I slept ten hours straight after my first day. Although the rotateable tv set in the middle of the room is pretty cool, I would rather be able to have USB and HDMI connections available.
Cleanliness was alright even though the small tiles in the shower give the whole bathroom a rather 'used' look.
The ac made some noise but it's a steady humming, so did not interfere with my sleep.
Had some issues connecting two devices simultaneously to the WiFi. The reception sent someone to my room to check, I set my phone to airplane mode and refreshed the login page several times..in the end we got it working.
The whole spa area is on the top floor and comprises gym, sauna, steam shower. The gym is a bit crammed with mainly upper body machines (s. my photo) but at least there is a vaste variety of them so you don't get bored even if you stay longer. There are also treadmills with a nice view on the business district.
Breakfast always made my day. Freshly made omelettes, delicious fruit, some tasty pastries put me in a good mood everyday.
Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about dinner. Pasta and rice were either overcooked, cold or dry, meat was far from tender and also the service was not too friendly.
I would book again if I find a better place for dinner in the vicinity.
