Ten stars! The Ca' D'Oro is like staying at a St. Regis in the middle of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Wonderful, personal staff, who remembered and remarked I was a repeat visitor, and gave me a room with a spectacular view in recognition of the loyalty.
Spotless, gloriously-quiet and well-designed rooms, something that is a rarity in São Paulo.
Lovely common amenities, including a library space and a really nice rooftop pool.
Breakfast is also excellent, and very good quality.
But best of all is the location - who are all these drab people saying the area isn't nice?
It's one of the coolest areas of São Paulo, smack dab in the middle of downtown/Higienopolis (with fantastically hip restaurants, cafés and shopping) and Paulista (which is convenient for touristy things), close to the metro L4, which gets you anywhere in the city in no time, and in a quiet part of Rua Augusta, which has bars, restaurants, and some of the best nightlife in Brazil.
Parabens, Ca' D'Oro!More
