Very well situated. Excellent price.
The way the room has been designed, the efficiency of the staff The breakfast (though offering plenty of options) could be a little bit better in terms of quality.
clean rooms, good location for business purposes, good breakfast, helpful staff, good value wireless only in lobby
the room was spacious, good location
the receptionist speaks fluent english and is very helpfull . The location is perfect, only 5 minutes walk to Av.Paulista . The hotelrooms are large and clean. The restaurant is very good. we were in the hotel during the winter and the breakfast room inside is not large enough for all guests, so we had to sit outside in the garden, which was cold and not comfortable.
Location is very good i arrived at midnigth and the buffet service never answer the call to service to my room..., on another hand they didnt wake me up at the last moring and i needed to run to the airport...,
Good money for value hotel. Very central location. Nice staff
it is close to paulista ave. and the area were is located is nice. very old hotel, carpets and deco old. room was not so clean, but it was larger than i espected.
They had an English speaking staff member who was very helpful!! The location was very convenient, a few blocks from Metro and MASP museum. Nice neighborhood restaurants also including Subway and Domino's Pizza all within walking distance. The room was very clean, roomy, had cable TV, the bed pretty comfortable, had a desk area, overall very nice for the price, would stay again!!! Also the breakfast buffet was very good and plenty to eat! No complaints at all!
Liked the service provided by the reception and very accomodating.Good Location. N/A
I stayed one night on my arrival in S.P. and another on my departure. It is a great hotel, staff speaks good english, courteous, and helpfull. The rooms aren't the largest I ever stayed, but for Sao Paulo standarts is pretty good. Modern, nicely appointed. The location couldn't be better, 3 blocks from MASP and Trianon Park. Breakfast included was great, all kind of breads, pastries, juices, cold cuts, fruits, yougurt, coffee, tea, milk, cakes, eggs, bacon and more...
The Hotel exceeded my expectations, with the very helpful and nice bellman to the staff behind the desk.
The location and access to public transportation.
Room Condition and Buffet Breakfast Some Hotel Staff don´t speak english or spanish
Staff was professional, and did not charge me for an overnight guest as many other hotels in Brazil do. The elevator is a little slow, and the free Internet is now only for 20 minutes -- but the Internet fee is stil extremely reasonable.
The check out time, which incidentally they presented me with the check out bill 3 days before my reservation and I was leaving that day because myself and my nephew did not sleep for 2 nights we stay there as the amount of noise, banging, screaming and other items ( I guess building is poorly built as it transfers noise more than usual, even with the type of " heavy use" by call girls and other heavy users. The hotel is really a " business" hotel whereas it is a headquarters for call girls to meet and do business with clients. The room I was in ( not only me but my nephew could not sleep even after I took 2 prescription sleeping pills!) was very noise as well as you would hear as if it was in the same room, beds banging, screaming, water running down and flushing and so on. I did complaint to front desk ( Ms. Gabriela on duty ) and she said on the first day they had other complaints but room next door had left. Unfortunately, that was not the only case! The only thing I require when using a business hotel is a good bed and clean room! This was a disgrace!
The location and breakfast. Services make no difference between tourists and business people. The previous user of the room left a bunch of hair on the bath tube wall. I did not wash it out and left it there. The hair was still there 8 days later when I left. I asked for a flat iron 3 times and finally got one on the 3rd day. But what was really anoying was the letter received in the middle of the week asking me to go down and pay my bill up to that point. The clerk has a a story to tell you that goes like this: "our system automatically issues this letter everytime a room bill reaches 1000 reais (about 500 dollars). We have no control o n the system and this partial payment is optional...bla bla bla". Since he said it was optional I asked to pay the entire bill at the last day. Well, the clerk did not allow me to leave without paying. My access to the room would not be renewed if I didn't. I then asked them to tell me why they do not inform this specific rule on the web site or when a guest checks in. They did not answer that question. I encouraged them to be honest and transparent with their guest and inform this rule right from the first day and on the reservation page.
mattress, and gym equipment
Conveniently located near Paulista Avenue in a safe and nice neighbourhood. Friendly reception staff, clean spacious rooms. A lot of noise coming in the room from the hall ways and the neighbour rooms. Because a lot of airline crew is staying in this hotel, it is noisy night and day. Will not stay again in the hotel for this reason.
A nice hotel with a very willing staff, though I sometimes wondered about their training--a couple of mix-ups regarding my check-out, checking minibar just after I arrived and then 2 times the next day. Very good breakfast incl. Good advice about free shuttles to restaurants. Jardins is a good area, but not really close to much. Several restaurants nearby, though, one 24/7 with buffet. Has spa, pool. Your rate was good, but everything else there is expensive. Internet cards are quite expensive.
Great value for the $$.
location in the center of Jardin. Staff friendliness (though they offered a taxi to airport which was too expensive). I was worried by some reviews about the hotel being sub-standard. It is certainly not very luxorious, but for the money you pay, it is good for one or two nights.
I have stayed at the GTPP many times, and love it. The staff is friendly and efficient and the rooms are clean and modern. Some of the cable channels have static, the signal is not clear. That's the only thing I can complain about.
Location, room and Staff! internet connection should improve. Also a Business would be a Plus!
Best possible location two blocks from Paulista and the MASP metro stop. You need to be near a Metro in SP because taxis could get caught in traffic jams. Everything about his property is first rate--a true 4 star. Also, a spectacular breakfast space. There is nothing to dislike. It's the best possible place to stay in SP--and the price is right!
The floor plan of the Junior Suite was just great. Location was perfect. Stuff was frienfly, though they tried to rip us off and charge us 50% of night stay for 2 hours eraly check-in (!!) upon arrival. The room was shabby and dirty. Needs immediate rennovation. Bath was full of stains and so were the carpets and sofa.Internet cost was very expensive. Indeed I moved to another hotel in town, giving up on the perfect location for a more modern and clean room
Location Dated furnishings, staff had no english, unresponsive to any simple requests, room furnishings clearly aged & carpets dirty.
Custo benefício e café da manhã. Mofo nos quarto e banheiro, além de um vazamento no banheiro
excellent location, balcony, stuff speaks english bathroom tiles could be cleaner, complicated handling with elevator
It was close to the places we wanted to go. We could walk to Oscar Freire and the taxi to the restaurants we wanted to go never costed more than R$20. Our only problem was that they didn't receive anything from booking.com about our reservation. Luckily there were rooms available. Still don't know whose fault is that.
The staff were very helpful,the hotel is in a good city center location,it was very easy to get to other parts of the city from the hotel,I thought it was good value for money and I will stay there again when I return to San Paulo in September 2009. I arrived late at night and had been flying for 17 hours I had an important meeting the next morning at 9am and wanted to have a dress pressed but was told that if I left it to be pressed I could not have it back until 8pm the following day,I went to my meeting looking very bad and I felt that this made me not give my best presentation,at lunch time I went out and bourght an iron so that I could...
It's very nice and simple, greatly oriented for business travelers or people who want to stay in a confy hotel in a great location in sao paulo.
Friendly and attentive reception, excellent variety of breakfast items, first-rate scrambled eggs which remain hot and fresh, attractive palms and fountains at rear. Faulty toaster at breakfast which was not repaired correctly or replaced during my 4-night stay, noisy air-conditioning in breakfast room when not required creating draughts. TV shelf in bedroom extends too far to left resulting in banging head when rising or sitting down to work at desk.
location and nice staff
Very good stay. Very helpful staff, good value, great location, nice room + bathroom facilities. Only restriction was the swimming pool being closed for repair. But guess that's a must. After all, that was a worthwhile stay.
Good location hotel, nearby museum of modern art (10 min. walk) and exclusive shopping areas (10 min. walk). 7 minutes walk to metro. Safe location also.
nice and safe areal, mange restaurats around, and walking distance to main street Paulista
I’ve been many times in this Hotel. the staff is very educated and proactive. They speak good English
Location Bar facilities very limited
Excellent location, just a few blocks away from the Museum of Art, Sunday flea market, the Trianon Park and the famous Paulista Avenue Breakfast was not included as it usualy is in Brazil. The cost is R$ 28.00 which I consider too overpriced
room furniture very confortabel situation of hotel computers in front of elevators is unconfortable
Quite and safe surrounding
From the minute we checked in, until the minute we checked out we were always very well taken care of. The staff catered to our every need and they all spoke great english. I can't wait to go back, with this hotel as your "base" you will be very comfortable.
surrounding - area in Sao Paulo
The hotel has a great location with a small pool on top. The hotel staff is very friendly. The rooms need a refurbishment.
Location is good. Service is good and very friendly. When sharing, the single beds are very small for a Suite room. Not comfortable.
The central location, close to the main shopping area and centre The interior of the room should be redone, not European standard at all
Great location, clean and comfortable room and courteous staff
the staff is really good, the breakfast is also very good. the location is amazing. they should only renovate the bedrooms and the furniture. no
the outstanding and unique location
The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a lovely location, near shops, restaurants, etc. The little outdoor heated pool amongst sofas etc was very pleasant. I was able to do some work seating in the sunshine, excellent for Londoners. The common areas are trendier than the actual rooms which are bit traditional. Overall a pleasant stay. Little niggles: no printed list of numbers/hotel facilities; spa was ridiculously expensive; kettle was provided but no cups/tea/coffee; hairdryer plug didn't fit in the bathroom plug, had to go out with wet hair (in fact there was a knack to fitting it but some of the staff did not know it); my room was very small, and lastly it was clear that they saved a bit on the hotel refurb as some of the...
Hotel was excellent, staff was amazing, especially Fillipe who helped me out loads. A mistake was made to my booking and I was upgraded. This hotel is a true 5 star experience... and it charges 5 star rates... however, I thought the 5 star rates were competitive with other 5 star hotels. Everything really was to the expected standard so I give it full marks. I was traveling all around Brazil and by the time I got to Tivoli I had some laundry to do. It cost me 430 reais to do a white and dark load... wooops!!! I should have checked that they were charging 10 reais to wash a little pair of underwear... (may as well just buy new stuff for that price). Bit exorbitant to say the least!
A neat, nicely decorated, wall placed hotel in the center of the city, not two minutes walking from the busy Av. Paulista and the MASP museum. It's safe to walk around both during daytime and night. The staff is efficient and good humoured, though they indulge themselves a bit to much in ocasions. The spa, gym and restaurants ara A-class but a bit too expensive. I would have appreciated some all-inclusivce offers as to take more advantage to what the premises have to offer. Excellent on the whole, though.
Perfect location in Jardins. Excellent facilities (gym, pool...). Good breakfast buffet with most helpful staff. Upon early arrival (just a couple of hours), I was told I would be charged for an early check-in, which I agreed to. However, I did not find fair that they would charge exactly the same daily rate offered at booking.com.
Location It feels like you're in a two star hotel, but you are actually paying for a five star. They do not provide free water in the rooms. The rooms are outdated and there is chipped wood on the doors.
Being at the center of Sao Paulo The room was too small
Modern, efficient staff, good location and very nicely decorated rooms. Good breakfast selction also
Excellent personal service. Beautiful modern design. Great location. Expensive.
Very nice and helpful staff. Excellent location. Good and fast internet for no extra charge. The look of the corridors was a bit dated, some of the furniture in the room a bit worn - this did not cause any problems but influences the general impression of the hotel.
nice, location, nice room
Location of the hotel was convenient. Work out facilities were better than expected. Would have been nice if front desk could have excahnged currencies. The breakfast buffet was not appealing.
Location. Good breakfast.
Really well located and a good value for money. Room is quite big with a living room and a bedroom. The hotel needs to be remodeled.
Their restaurant has very good food. My room. Internet is not free and carpet and bed are very old.
Excellent and effective staff Needs an internal redecoration and modernization of the bathrooms
Big room. Nice location. Helpful woman at the reception regarding information about Sao Paulo. Breakfast was good.
It is well located, near interesting business and shopping areas in Sao Paulo. A bit far from the nearest Metro station. The hotel looks a lot more luxurious from the outside than it really is in the inside. The rooms look a bit oldish and the hall ways need some painting. They should have free internet and not charge for it on a 24 hour basis.
it was in a good region of city and close to touristic places. I tried once having dinner in the restaurant and the food was too salty. The hotel didnt have a pool (had a small pool which is only for playing)
the location and the staff
Spoke good English at reception. Also reception was very helpfull. Breakfast was very good, accept for the hot water for tea. It wasn't really hot and difficult to explain to staff, because they only spoke Portuguese.
I stayed only one night at this hotel. Everything was up to the level expected for this type of hotel. Staff was very nice and spoke excellent English (at the desk but not in the restaurant though); room was very clean and spacious; bathroom was a bit smaller but well designed and space-efficient; restaurant food was very good as was the location because it was near the main shopping street - Paulista Avenue. The only negative thing I could say is that the pool at the top floor was dirty but I guess it had to do with the fact that the weather was not nice and it was not possible to use it anyway so they did not think that cleaning would make sense.
The staff are very helpful and informative. They helped with restaurants and booking a taxi to the port of Santo's
Good location in the Jardins district. The Hotel was comfortable and the room was a decent size. Lots of restaurants nearby, particularly Japanese. The hotel wasn't really that close to the Avenida Paulista but was still reasonable central. No iron in the room. Needed to spend 15 reais every time you needed something pressed. The hotel staff were friendly enough but not really informative about nearby amenities and restaurants.
Large room; good facitlities; nice lobby area and restaurant on site; near several good restaurants on the same street Hallways not very clean; carpet stains; hallway and room somewhat smelly
Very good location and nice helpful staff. Size and cleanliness of room were also very good. Buffet breakfast could have been better.
Location in Jardins, a bit outside of the main shoping area, all in waking distance. Staff was friendly and helpful. Free internet at the low, but sufficient for e-mailing and web surfing speed. The hotel rooms are comfortable, bed and bathroom clean, however the carpet in my room was worn out with a lot of dirty stains. The furniture is somewhat 'old' for European standards.
Vastly exceeded my expectations. Room was a suite, full marble flooring throughout, balcony with table and chairs, small cooking area. Very luxurious indeed, the best hotel of about eight that I've stayed at in Sao Paulo. Door keys were old-fashioned and didn't seem terribly secure - the doorway was cracked from an attempted break-in.
The rooms were of good size and cean. The staff was outstanding and very helpful, as was the restaurant personnel. The bathroom was in poor condition and badly needed renovations, although the room attendant kept it very clean.
the room itself was great. large, clean, comfortable. No one on staff at the hotel could speak english which made things a bit difficult a times.
Helpful staff, good value for money twin beds in the room
Good services, excellent location, well-decorated. Good breakfast. Nothing to complain about.
The location is good and is a nice clean place. Ours was a standard apartment. Overall it was good but on the expensive side
Great location close to Paulista Ave and shopping in Augusta Ave, large and comfortable room, friendly staff and good breakfast Not many of the staff spoke English, but we could always find someone who did.
Very friendly staff. Well organized. Garage service is ok and the location of the hotel is good, close to Av. Paulista and metrò station.
Spacious rooms with a bit weird années 70 design (everything is new although), helpful and very freindly staff, nice continental breakfast from 6-30 to 11 (very handy if you go clubbing and come back to hotel after 6). Well, as everywhere in Brazil, English rarely spoken, if that can be a case.
Roomy accomodations and great location close to shopping in a nice area. I liked the fact that it had a balcony and a kitchenette. Breakfast was acceptable but the food I ordered from the restaurant for dinner was terrible. I ordered dinner from room service one night and could not even eat it. It was fish and vegetables and tasted and smelled so bad I threw up. When I told the front desk, they did not offer to take it off my bill.
Comfortable Very little english spoken at this hotel.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and courteous. I think the reviews I read about the smalleness of the room, the bad food etc are unlucky personal experiences. I found the breakfast and dining in the restaurant both excellent.The location is perfect. I did not like the fact that there was no way of making coffee or toast in the kitchen. There was not even a knife to make a sandwich.
The rooms need updating, and for the price, it is much better value to stay at a Mercure or similar. The assets are the top floor restaurant (view) and gym facilities. Overpriced for the quality of the room. I think the term "Luxury/VIP" used for rooms is quite misleading. This extra charge is basically only for a television/DVD combination, it seems. I was expecting a better room than the standard ones. This was not the case.
Good Staffs.Good view of city area.Wide room. Good sleep. The same breakfast every day. No vegitables at breakfast. Rather small pool. There is only microwave oven in the kichen.
Apartment a little bare of carpets/rugs and there were no Hangers for cloths in wardrobes. Otherwise good.
Central Sao Paolo Food restaurant disaster and very expensive for what you get.
excellent location, good sightseeing from the restaurant
Locality and ease of walking to main shopping areas. Staff do not speak English . Front office manager was the only English speaker. Restaurant food was not good. Noisy neighbors with doors slamming at night. Nothing luxury about the luxury room.
Location. We always stay at Jardins and this was the only hotel availalbe. This was not good value for the money.
The size was pretty good and the location as well. The restaurant where the breakfast is served is poor, dark .... and the bathroom is quite old.
Staff was very attentive and courteous. Hotel is in serious need of remodel. Other hotels in the area are 1/2 the price of this hotel and in far better condition, however a conference was in town and this was one of only 2 choices available in this neighborhood. Both rooms given to us were smoking rooms in spite of requesting non smoking rooms. It was a fair to poor value for the price, which may have been elevated due to lack of rooms in the area during our stay.
Nothing to say
Location. Lots of nearby restaurants and very close to Metro station. It is a resisdence hotel and has a kitchenette but didn't have any housewares (dishes, microwave, tea kettle, etc)
