Conversations can be heard literally from next door (via ventilation in bathroom) or from outside the room (hallway). -breakfast doesn't offer any healthy choice such as vegetables, wholewheat bread...

Location is good and from there you can walk to shops, have a coffee and the museum. Staff is friendly but the room is very basic.

All I could ask for in a hotel for a work trip.

I could simply advise any TripAdvisor reader simply to avoid this hotel and leave it at that but I feel I would be doing the travel community a disservice - and being generous to this sorry excuse for a hotel.

Perfect location, small rooms. Rooms with 2 single beds are way too small for tall adults. Small outdated bathroom. Ask for a room with a kingsize bed, more convenient. Nice outdoor pool with a few hours sun. Friendly staff. Limited breakfast.

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
