This hotel at #1255 Rua Augusta appears to be advertised under different names that are easily confused with other properties on the same street. I reserved under the name "Bella Augusta Residence." Here on TripAdvisor the property is listed as "Augusta Plaza Hotel". Down the street at #922 is "Augusta Park Residence". The naming confusion makes it difficult to find the right hotel to read reviews.
I expected to find a hotel that was old but reasonably comfortable. But the lack of maintenance in the room in which I stayed made the stay uncomfortable. The latch to the closet door beside the bed virtually fell off when I tried to open the door. The faucet in the bathroom sink was in the same condition. Paint was peeling from a large area of the wall adjacent to the bathroom.The toilet stank, apparently not having been cleaned very well. There was no air conditioning but a fancy portable fan/humidifier in the room that did very little by way cooling; it was uncomfortably hot during my stay in February.
On the positive side, the airport bus from Guarulhos stops a short walk from the hotel, the staff were fine, breakfast was ok and there are a good number of restaurants nearby, including a Japanese restaurant where I had dinner. Based on my experience, if I was going to stay in the same area, I would look for a better option.More
