Good location and good size room Interesting breakfast nice and friendly staff
Shame the place is stock in the 70s Need some refurbishment and the tv was just in Portuguese (no possibility to change in original language)
The hotel is close to the historical center. Walking distance to the Cathedral of Sao Paulo (maybe 10-15 minutes walking). Around the corner pedestrian streets starts where you find many shops and the walk towards the cathedral is mostly at these streets. You can also walk easily towards the Edificio Cholpan which is a majestic building of Oscar Neimeyer. The breakfasts are satisfactory. If they prepared fried eggs as well it would be perfect. But there is readily available fried eggs. :/ Staff are helpful and friendly. You feel very safe inside the hotel. Outside is also generally safe, however, there are many homeless people all around Sao Paulo and the neighborhood of the hotel is also taking its share. Just accross the street there is a bar called Brahma. Never been there but very crowded in both nights I was in Sao Paulo. Also very nice live music they had. On the other hand again very close to the hotel (around the corner, two blocks later towards the cathedral) Saturday night there was a open air concert thanks to the bar (I don't remember the name. But the groups name was "tres in the box" and they were playing nice music. I really enjoyed that night.
Fried eggs can be prepared! I am not sure if they had it or not. To be honest I was late to the breakfast for both days so I couldn't ask if they were preparing or not. Most likely they were not. My room was very comfortable. Instant hot water even though it was 13th floor. Also very nice water pressure. Good job.
I was lucky that they had rooms available so I could check in early. Staff was very nice. Breakfast was great, lots of hot food (eggs, sausage) as well as cheeses, deli meats, and pastries, juices. Shower was hot and strong pressure. Thank you to the staff for being so friendly.
My key never worked, had to go down to reception several times. WiFi doesn’t work great inside the room, but is fine in the hall. Air conditioner was not obvious, there is a switch (like a light switch) next to the outlet by the bed. A bit noisy in 1403, can hear the noise from the street below. Homeless people outside.
The hotel is in a very central location in São Paulo. The room was is a decent size and has all the amenities you would require during a stay. There was a large and plentiful breakfast buffet.
The hotel is dated and requires a renovation.
The Location was good for what we needed to do.
The fact that we tried to have a snack in some tables near the Lobby late at night and the Staff didn't allowed us, we had to eat in our room with our friends. We were paying for the stay so in my opinion we should be able to use all the facilities of the hotel.
With a stay at Hotel Excelsior, you'll be centrally located in Sao Paulo, a 6-minute walk from Municipal Theatre of São Paulo and 12 minutes by foot from Rua 25 de Marco. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. This hotel has 6 meeting rooms available for events. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
