I stayed for 2 nights in the Superior Queen room and my initial impressions were quite good. Interesting façade. Smart reception room. The room is quite big, nicely decorated if a bit outdated, the shower is nice with good water pressure, the bed is very comfortable and there are 4 pillows all very comfortable too. Also the room is very quiet with no street noise at all. The WiFi Internet is awesome. Really fast. The only problem was that the air conditioning unit started leaking and I had to call reception. A technician was sent in promptly and I was told I should change rooms. I did and everything was ok after this. The breakfast was just ok. They were renovating an area of the lobby so on the first two days there were only one lift available. The receptionist at check in was not friendly at all. He didn’t inform me of the renovation, didn’t tell me about breakfast times so I had to call reception afterwards to learn about this and about the gym and swimming pool. This is a problem that is endemic in Brazil. Hotel staff is usually unprepared to deal with clients usually is unfriendly and at best polite. Not to mention English is also a problem for them. I think management should train or hire staff better and this would improve this hotel immensely.

My room service took more than 30 minutes to arrive. I had to change rooms becasue the air conditioning wasn't working. I wanted to take a swim, but the pool was out of order. The surrounding neighborhood is not very safe.

The hotel was clean and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly- the doormen always waved bye to us even though you could tell they felt a little silly and everyone was very good-natured about our very limited Portuguese. Some of the food at the hotel restaurant was a little strange, but it all tasted good and anyway, who goes to Brazil for Italian food? My sister and I loved the pool and the fruit at breakfast.

Dear Guest, First thank you for having reserved a part of your time to provide us your opinion about our services. I am sorry about your evaluation about missing staff speaking english, but we have in the front desk at least one person in each turn. About the taxi, we are in São Paulo downtown, and here we have a great deal of services and places to go, but it depends where you need to go. I am sorry if you do not found here your travel goals. We were very happy with their positive assessment of our hotel and services. In name of the Comfort Hotel Downtown team I thank you again and we hope see you soon again! Sincerely, José Ribeiro C General Manager

...in full 1980s-style Beirut derelict chic.

As with all things Brazil, it's almost good. The hotel is one amazing-looking property: vast valet reception in neo-colonial guise, with very modern and attractive reception next to a gorgeously-upmarket internal restaurant. It's clean, very well-located, and gives you the perception it's a high-end place at a value price. To a certain extent, that's true. It's much, much nicer and more modern than the vast majority of Sampa hotels.

All the hallmarks of a international hotel chain are there: professionally-dressed staff, room temperature control, large beds with work desks, sexy elevators; the works. It's definitely a place that meets Western standards and expectations if you're accommodating a business traveler or a few days' tourism - if you have a choice, stay here.

The downsides are apparent quickly: the backside of the building couldn't be more opposite; it's a horrendously ugly concrete shell with square windows that don't open (it's good to have air, and a view) that looks like it may well have formerly been an urban prison. As friendly as the staff try to be, they have a noticeable habit of apathetically abandoning what they're doing (particularly if language is a problem) - be it room service that never answers or appears, or receptionists' trying to multi-task with the phone. The pool/patio area is one hilariously third-world installation that is kind of like someone's under-funded garden pond and work-out shed.

The other issue is the area: as centrally located as it is, it's not good at night - the atmosphere clearly changes. A walk to the scarce local restaurants and bars gives you a tour of streets with prostitutes (garotas de programa) openly soliciting on almost every single corner - the most blatant street prostitution i have seen in any part of south/central America. A wrong turn and there are more than enough stares from shady characters hanging around "L'Amour", intertwined with homeless people every 20ft on the sidewalk.

Overall it's good value and above average for its class in Sao Paulo, with quite a few rough edges: just remember to research the area, have solid Portugues, and insist on a front-facing room.
