“the idiots at the front can't speak a lick of english....this is a freakin hotel”
Reviewed 17 June 2011

I'm trying to call a friend who's in Brazil for work and I've tried calling twice to get transferred to his room. First time, the guy said no speak English. So, I looked up the translation of "transfer me to the room of senor whatever" in portuguese and called back. The idiot left me waiting with some crappy music playing and was wasting my minutes so I hung up. WOW, what a dump if you have people in the hospitality industry who can't understand basic hotel english! Even illegal Mexicans learn a bit of English to get by here. These people don't even try...

Room Tip: dont stay here ever

O hotel passou por uma reformulação de staff e a grande maioria do front desk é recepcionista com conhecimentos em inglês. Desta forma, entedemos ter sido um caso isolado que não compromete a qualidade dos serviços prestados em hospedagem, alimentação e eventos.
Agradecemos pela opinião e esperamos ve-lo novamente no hotel para que esta má impressão seja apagada.
Atenciosamente,

Dear Mr. Mike,

Thanks for the compliments to Century, confirming the quality of our services. We know that all opinions are valid, because provide us opportunities for improvement. We fully agree with your comments, as there are often greatly exaggerated criticism by sitações simple. But it behooves us to thank everyone, fix the problems really relevant, lamenting the hype and reiterate our thanks to customers like Mr. cordial
Thank you,
Sincerely,

Stayed here with a group of friends for 1 night - and we tried to make the night very long so we didn't have to stay here for too long. The rooms are extra tiny, we only traveled with 2 hand luggage suitcases but had problems putting them somewhere in the room. Everything's very old, the lobby has the charme of a 1970s train station restaurant, most cab drivers took ages finding the hotel. Location however is quite good, but in the middle of a residential area, so if you stay here, it's absolutely crucial to take a map from the hotel to show the taxi drivers where to go. Overall, not an experience I would want to repeat, especially not for 210 Reales a night (100 USD).

O Century possui dois padrões de apartamento o STD de 13m2 eo Luxo com 26m2. Certamente o luxo atenderia melhor à necessidade de muita bagagem. Estas informações de tamanho constam em todos os portais de reservas e estamos a disposição também para adicionar informações que se fizerem necessárias.
A localização do hotel é no bairro do Paraiso, coração financeiro de SP, a 500m da Av. Paulista, a 5ª avenida de SP. Mesmo para alguém de fora do país, não dificuldade alguma em chegar, esceto se motoristas de táxi tiverem alguma intensão que não levar o cliente diretamente ao destino.
A tarifa de US$ 100, é o valor abaixo dos hotéis da região.
Agradecemos pela colaboração e nos colocamos a inteira disposição.

wow! this could be a great hotel,unfortunately the staff are very hard to deal with. the general manager is very rude. we came upon this place,we liked the location and general appearance.we we're specificly looking for a hotel that had a pool,and fitness center.before booking in we asked if we could view a room first,the front desk said yes...we waited 55minutes as the girl appointed to show us the room chatted on the telephone with a friend.when we informed them we could return later to view a room they informed us to wait as they were waiting for the room to be made up..that it would only take a few minutes...another 35 minutes later we were taken to the room. it was very very small,but clean and adequate.then we ask to see the fitness center and pool,once again we were told the pool was open 24 hours a day for our convenience...this seemed odd as the pool had a tarp on it..when we questioned this we were informed it was tarped to keep the rain out?that night after checking we tried to use the pool...after trying to get someone to remove the tarp for over an hour..we gave up...they had employees at the pool ready to sell us beer...but apparrently none of them had authority to remove the tarp ??? when we returned to our room we found we were in need of pillows..this took two hours to obtain and 8 calls to the front desk...with several pass the buck stories,very frustrating at midnight when you're tired and just want to get to sleep! after two days of still being told we were welcome to use the pool,but informed we were not allowed to remove the tarp to access it, we asked to talk to the manager. i briefly explained my issues.his response was amazing...he demanded to know why i needed a pool...then yelling at me informed me that he was not running a hospital and abrubtly hung up on me.i would not reccomend this hotel to anyone..ther are many other hotels in the area that offer more for a lot less..and they don't have staff and managers that continually lie and yell at customers in an attempt to intimidate them.

O Century possui toda a sua estrutura de lazer à disposição de seus clientes sem custo adicional nenhum e com todas as funcionalidades de um bom hotel da região nobre da Av. Paulista.
Temos a informar que esta situação ocorrida, certamente foi atípica e pontual e acrecentamos que todos os colaboradores envolvidos neste eventual episódio não fazem parte de nosso staff, inclusive o gerente que prestou este tipo de atendimento.
O Century está há dois anos em uma nova etapa onde valoriza ao extremo o relacionamento com o cliente, prezando pela sua plena satisfação.
Entendemos que todos são importantes e que episódios isolados com o descrito estão praticamente extintos em nosso rol de serviços.
Century Paulista, certificado ISO 9001 em qualidade.
