Reviewed March 29, 2013

I stayed in this Pousada twice in a one-week period in December of 2012. The two stays were extremely different experiences. The first stay was very unpleasant, but the second stay was fantastic. The main difference was the room that I stayed in, as described below.

First, the positive features. To my knowledge, this is the cheapest hotel available in the Jardins/Avenida Paulista area of Sao Paulo (aside from hostels). If you are traveling on a budget, it is a solid option for that reason alone. Unfortunately, the price was about the only positive thing I could say about my first visit. I was assigned to a single room, and it was tiny. It was easily the smallest hotel room I have ever seen. It basically had room for a small, short bed; I had trouble even finding a place for my suitcase. There was no air conditioner in my room (despite the fact that they advertised that rooms were air conditioned), and even the small fan in the room was broken. I had a hot, claustraphobic, miserable night. And to top it off the wifi didn't work at all. I guess the other redeeming feature was the fact that they didn't seem to have any kind of check out time, so at least I got to sleep in.

As you can imagine, I wasn't very excited about going back a week later, but I had already paid for a room. To my surprise, this time my experience was much better. I was assigned to a double room rather than a single room. The double room was still small, but not nearly as claustrophobic. There was plenty of room for my belongings, and even a small desk where I could set up my computer. (Interestingly, this time the wifi worked fine.) And the room also had a working air conditioner. It was a very pleasant night and a fantastic bargain for an expensive area of Sao Paulo.

A few other details about the hotel: it seems to cater to both visitors and those looking for longer-term rentals. (Their web site lists a monthly rental rate in addition to a nightly rate.) This has both pluses and minuses. They don't seem to clean the rooms on a daily basis, and there is no soap or shampoo in the bathrooms, so be prepared for that. On the other hand, there is a communal kitchen/refrigerator, which was convenient. Also, I believe that the managers of the hotel are only there during business hours, so I'm not sure if it is possible to check in if you have a flight that arrives in the evening.

In any event, even after my first night at Pousada Jardins, I would recommend it for the price alone. And my second visit was a very good experience. My recommendation, however, is that you book a double room rather than a single room even if you are traveling by yourself. The double rooms are only slightly more expensive, and I would gladly pay a little extra money to make sure that I have air conditioning and a place to put my luggage.

Room Tip: As noted in the review above, I recommend that you avoid the single rooms. The double rooms are only slightly more expensive and my stay in a double room was far more pleasant.
