Sao Paulo Hotels

As the most populous city in Brazil and a center for international business, São Paulo 's hotels primarily cater to corporate customers, which means prices are generally high. However, boutique offerings, particularly those with a contemporary Brazilian flavour, are becoming more popular. Cheap hotels in São Paulo, particularly budget hostels around youthful Vila Madalena, give some relief for the less fiscally endowed.

The São Paulo hotels below have been hand-picked by our guide author and are grouped into three price categories:
Luxury (over 730BRL)
Moderate (500BRL to 730BRL)
Cheap (under 500BRL)
These São Paulo hotel prices are the starting prices for a standard double room and include taxes. Breakfast is extra unless stated otherwise.

Luxury

Emiliano

Film stars and glitterati frequent this exclusive São Paulo hotel. This small hotel is only 38 rooms and infused with a cool minimalism. Hidden behind its mirror glass façade are huge rooms, just three per floor, with soothing cream décor. The deluxe spa includes a complimentary spa-massage for guests and superb views over the neighbourhood. A champagne and caviar bar sits alongside a fine contemporary Italian restaurant on the ground floor. There is a helipad on the rooftop with an airport shuttle service available.

Fasano

This hotel's ethos is opulent familiarity, hence why new arrivals are greeted by an inviting sunken lounge bar of plump leather sofas, with reception concealed within a Babylonian brickwork interior. The theme of easy decadence flows into the rooms with lots of wood and timeless leather furnishing. The Italian cuisine within the sparklingly lit Fasano Restaurant, under chef Salvatore Loi's direction, is one of São Paulo's finest. Naomi Campbell and Yoko Ono are among illustrious past clients.

Hotel Unique

Like a stranded copper-green Noah's ark, renowned architect Ruy Ohtake's fantasy creation is the pinnacle of imaginative design. Every inch of this boutique São Paulo hotel near Ibarepuera Park is surreal. Rooms with arched wooden floors reflect the hotel's curvature, and furnishings are sci-fi chic. A blood-red swimming pool on the rooftop tops off this extraordinary architectural adventure.
