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.

Absolutely Perfect

The deluxe king room was huge, and felt like an oasis of calm and comfort: large, beautifully appointed, and functional, with a great shower and pampering cosmetics and linens. It's in an upscale residential neighbourhood, and everything about it says understated luxury. But the best is yet to come: The service is just outstanding. The bellboys, the front desk, the bartender and the concierge were all, without exception, friendly, helpful and polite, without being obsequious, and they all (remembered and) called us by our names. It kind of feels wrong to single one out, but we have to give a special mention to Luiza, who heard that for religious reasons we could not drink the complimentary wine and, by the time we returned from dinner, had replaced it with something we could drink. A simply perfect end to our South American adventure.

Wonderful stay!

I don’t give out excellent ratings often but this small hotel totally came through with the service at the front desk, luggage put in our room, three pieces of fruit freshly put in our room at the morning cleaning, and wonderful chocolates at the night time turn down.
Air conditioner work great! At first the setting was saying 18 but the temp was only going to 21 and I called the front desk and the nice young lady came up (she spoke both languages) with the maintenance man and they figured out that the filter needed cleaning and he replaced it, within 10 minutes, and the temp came to where I wanted it.

The restaurant and bar on the first floor are excellent for breakfast and we had two dinners there as well. Perfect location in the heart of São Paulo. I highly recommend this hotel!

The Emiliano is quiet and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful. We loved the thoughtful amenities in our room: a bottle of wine upon arrival and fresh fruit and pastry each afternoon. These extras made us feel welcome and appreciated.

I have been in the hotel for a business breakfast with a customer, the service is impeccable, perfect, the food is worthy of a wedding buff, or French bistro, welcoming atmosphere, and that allows for privacy. You will feel prestige at any time if you are in Emiliano! Congratulations on the great work; And by the beautiful hotel :-)

Estive no hotel para um café da manhã de negócios com um cliente, o atendimento é impecável, perfeito, a comida é digna de um buffer de casamento, ou bistrô francês, ambiente acolhedor, e que permite a privacidade.
