The hotel is great, very confortable and has a good location near Paulista Avenue. Good service and good breakfast. My only request is: the hotel reception have to be quick at check-in. But, at all, I enjoyed the stay!

After we had a long day travelling, all we wanted to do was check into our room at The Maksoud. We were welcomed by a 15 metre queue which took us an hour to check in. This is no exaggeration! Nor did the staff behind the desk apologise for our wait. Once we did get into our room, it was...

I had a clean, updated room, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They are about 1-2 blocks to Paulista Avenue, and about 3 blocks to the Trianon-Masp subway station. I hope to visit Sao Paulo again, and I definitely want to stay at the Maksoud Plaza.

I have heard a lot through the years so my expectations were high. I quickly got disappointed. The lobby line was long and the wait was annoying.

I stayed just for one night but was enough to get the good experience. Large spaces, no lines or crowd although a good social environment. Breakfast great. Staff polite but too formal. Maybe cultural reasons could be a little more loose and relax. I recommend this one and willing to stay again.

This place has terrible check we had to wait close to an hour to check in. It is dated but has important historic significance. The interior needs a remodel but the concept open reception layout is great. Every time we go down theirs, there is always a line for check in.

Considering the deal that we got for this hotel stay, we didn't expect too much. We were pleasantly surprised. On our girls' trip, my friends and I were concerned that Sao Paolo would let us down after the excitement of Rio. This hotel was the beginning of exceeding our expectations.

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.
