The units have a kitchenette (no dishes), living area and bedroom. Nice and quiet area close to Paulista Ave. Good free wifi. Friendly reception staff. Good breakfast, mediocre dinner. 5 minutes walk from metro.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel and they were amazing. We knew very little Portuguese, but they made our stay very pleasant. We picked this area because it was close to Paulista Avenue and we were more than happy with their accommodations. We really enjoyed the beautiful, quiet, and comfortable rooms. The free breakfast in the mornings was... More

My girlfriend and I recently completed a stay at this hotel for four nights. Sleep quality was good and the room was very quiet. But, the only reason to stay at this hotel is if you want to be in a residential area within walking distance of Paulista Avenue. Although this a relatively new building, it is not being well...

We stayed here for 3 nights and I have to say that I was incredibly impressed. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's definitely great.

I was there in June, it is a nice hotel, close to the Paulista Avenue, with wide bedrooms. The only bad thing is that the foundation of the building is old, but i had a nice stay. The room service is quick, they don't have a wine menu, and the food portions are reasonable. The breakfast has tropical fruits, breads,... More

This is a building that is part apartments and part hotel. It must have been built in the 80's and has had little invested in it since. It's old, tired and badly maintained. Whatever renovation that has been done is cheap and nasty. The rooms are big and offer the flexibility of a small kitchenette. There was also a coffee... More

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighbourhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
