Amazing value and quality for the price

Great value, exceeded our expectations for the price. Real 4 star. Helpful friendly staff with pretty good English. After a sauna on the top floor followed by a freezing shower in the special multi ring shower we lay on the sofas as the wind blew the lace curtains feeling like millionaires! Breakfast buffet was the same each day but plenty of variety, nice bread, good quality cheezes, pastries, eggs, all you could want. Good free internet. There is a small bar downstairs but the restaurant was closed when we were there (it was carnival time).
It is in a very upmarket suburb of Sao Paulo, felt quite safe walking around at night, there are lots of smart restaurants literally round the corner and a pizza place opposite. Within a few blocks there are Peruvian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian restaurants, some bars, they range from cafe's for breakfast to very upmarket places with Mercedes queued up outside.
Its a bit of a steep walk uphill to the nearest metro (next to the Modern Art Gallery) but not far, and its downhill on the way home! Taxis are cheap and there is usually one or two waiting at the hotel door if you don't fancy the walk. Downhill gets you to the parks and statue
