The Review

Arriving in Sao Paulo for the first time is an electrifying experience — especially for those who travel to the Emiliano by helicopter, landing on the hotel’s helipad just 15 minutes after arriving at the airport.

Naturally, we can’t all be so fabulous. But the high-class, supersleek Emiliano has a way of making every guest feel special, thanks mostly to the professional staff, which is clearly as comfortable accommodating celebrities and captains of industry as wildly impressed tourists.

The hotel opened in the trendy Jardin area in 2001, and the Emilano’s 54 guestrooms have stood the test of time beautifully, with contemporary interiors done in birchwood and white. Look out at the frenetic city below from your swanky leather couch while biting into the creamy flesh of a tasty fruta do conde, one of the perks that come standard here.{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/1554/prop-89742-1313610359-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Like in all rooms, Suites come with butler service, breakfast and in-room fruit and wine.”}

There’s a restaurant renaissance happening in Sao Paulo, and it includes the hotel’s on-site restaurant. With its towering, lush vertical garden, the restaurant is part of the Emiliano’s overall graceful design, which comes courtesy of homegrown architect Arthur Casas. Young chef José Barattino helms the kitchen, producing Italian-based dishes, and Sunday brunch here is quite an occasion.

Elsewhere, there’s a small rooftop spa, a 24-hour fitness center with a sauna, and plenty of places to begin a gastronomic adventure in this food-obsessed city. Treat yourself at the hotel’s champagne and caviar bar, or head to the Emiliano Bar. The crowd here can include everyone from locals to visiting A-listers, enjoying the list of 100 teas and more than 60 types of beer.

Sao Paulo’s visceral impact can overwhelm. But over time (and with the help of the Emiliano’s friendly service), you’ll warm to it.

Great service

Great location and excellent service. Nice rooms and amenities. Fantastic Spa. The gym is a little small. If you prefer smaller boutique hotels, this is the place. Friendly staff that make an effort to get to know you. When in São Paulo I always choose Emiliano, It has almost become a 'home away from home'.

Pricey but worth it

This hotel was a good spend even though pricey. It was also the perfect end to a touring holiday. They take care of everything exactly the way a five star hotel should be and I felt confident in placing complete reliance on them. The rooms are not out of the world from a pricing perspective but they meet all the needs. Loved the free 15minute massage and other little details that are not missed.
Definitely ensured that this was a true holiday. Quite well insulated rooms with a perfect location, friendly well represented English speaking staff.
I would definitely book here if I stay in Sao Paulo again.

Average given high price

As one of the top rated hotels in São Paulo, we expected more.

The good: Location in the heart of the city, friendly staff, nice room, nice gym and (small) spa, nice restaurant. Also, customized Havianas sandals to take home.

The less than good: Frequently asked if you want something but not clear if this is an offer of help or a sales pitch to add something to your bill.

Summary: Good for business travelers who want convenience and don’t have to file their own expense reports.

Terrific stay!

The hotel had a unique location in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of SP.
It is a boutique hotel with all the facilities as top and chain hotels.
Since the moment I arrived, I was escorted to my room. A butler offered to accommodate my luggage and hang my clothes as well.
The suite was spacious and clean with modern and minimalist furniture. The living room area had a large couch, with a flat screen TV, some other appliances and a working area, The bedroom could be separated by sliding doors and had a big and confortable king bed, soft pillows, sockets on both sides of the bed and a flat screen TV too.
The bathroom had a shower and a bathtub, the best quality of toiletries that were replenished twice a day and plenty of towels that were changed every time I left the room.
I used the gym every day, and though it was small and clean, it did not have the top quality machines but it was ok. Complimentary fruits and water were served at the gym too.
The staff was very professional at all times, from the doorman to housekeeping, all of them went out of their way to make me feel a valued customer.
I would like to mention that Thaiane Leoni from Front Desk took care of my requests prior to my arrival in Brazil, and helped me coordinate the appointments with the make up artist and hairdresser.
A welcome bottle of wine, a complimentary drink at the bar, fresh fruits and small treats brought to the room every evening and a smile every time the staff welcomed me, were sweet gestures that made of my stay at Emiliano a nice one.
