Stylish 1930s European gentlemen’s club. Rich wood paneling, nicely patinated leather chairs and Italian travertine walls and floors set the tone. Designed by Brazilian starchitects Isay Weinfeld and Marcio Kogan, it has a restrained, understated masculinity, all rich textures and classic details, such as framed vintage maps, streamlined light fixtures and Eames chairs.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are spacious, with windows that take up most of one wall and let in abundant light. Along with the usual luxury suspects, including parquet floors, Egyptian cotton sheets and Persian kilim rugs, they have arty flourishes such as Murano vases and Venetian-framed paintings. The marble bathrooms are similarly large and come with plush towels (and a heated rack to hang them on).
Wallpaper magazine named the jewel box Baretto bar the number one bar in the world. Discreet and intimate, it serves as a venue for musicians from Bobby Short and Carol Sloane to Caetano Veloso and Os Cariocas. The Italian trattoria Nonno Rugero is considered one of the city’s top restaurants, a grand room with a terrace overlooking a leafy street. There’s an indoor pool on the 21st floor that’s reserved for hotel guests, and a small spa offering treatments using products from L’Occitane, La Prairie and Germaine du Capuccini.
In the Area
The Jardins district is the Beverly Hills or Madison Avenue of Sao Paulo, a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood dotted with high-end boutiques and glamorous sidewalk cafés. The main drags are Oscar Friere and Rua Haddock Lobo, home to the very groovy Havianas flagship, sexy dress shops such as Le Lis Blanc Deux, bathing suit boutiques galore, and mellow spots like Café Santo Grao. At the latter, stop by the semi-enclosed terrace for terrific coffee and people watching.
How to Get There
This hotel is great, i came for business a couple of days and it was excellent. Service was first class and the housekeeping was impeccable. Breakfast was also great and the rooms were a decent size for such a busy city. Price is a bit steep but definitely recommend.
The fasano São Paulo is supper. I had the pleasure of meeting Rogerio Fasano on my last stay and he was even so kind and down to earth! Couldn’t recommend this hotel group more. If you have the opportunity go eat at Gero down the street. Best. The hotel of the top is amazing
Fasano Hotel is in the best location, with many restaurants and shops within walking distance. The facilities at Fasano are superior with impeccably clean and well equipped rooms, truly delicious food in every restaurant, and courteous staff who treat you like family. I highly recommend Fasano as it is my home away from home.
My colleagues and I stayed at the Fasano for nearly 2 weeks for a work trip, and I will never stay anywhere else in Sao Paolo again, the Fasano is absolutely top notch. The hotel itself is just beautiful and the staff went above and beyond at every turn. I had a very very noisy neighbor for 2 nights (not their fault), and finally had enough- as soon as I called down the hotel was kind enough to switch my room so I could avoid a 3rd sleepless night. Both of the rooms I stayed in were gorgeous, excellent design, spacious, and super comfortable with great views. We had super long days on set shooting a commercial and coming home to my lovely room every day was a pleasure, and the rooms have enough personal touches to feel like you're staying in a friends really cool apartment. The staff were all super lovely and so patient with me and my many requests (I was travelling with a small group and handled all the billing, which required alot of spliting incidentals, backup receipts, etc). And WOW.. The breakfast!!! Thesetup is incredible, so many options, with a wonderful staff that quickly got to know us. We loved having an evening drink in the lobby bar (either one) or grabbing a late snack and cocktail at Baretto. Gym is modern, clean and bright with a helpful attendant at all times. Pool & spa facilities are small but beautiful. Neighborhood is posh and felt very safe, myself as well as other female colleagues all went running (separately and together) from the hotel to and around Ibirapuera Park and never once felt unsafe. We didn't have a ton of downtime but squeezed in a little shopping as well since Oscar Freiere is right around the corner. There are many great dining options nearby. Also, so random but if you're looking for a fun workout- I loved going to Spin & Soul just around the corner, and the hotel got us all a deal with the first class free. Muito Obrigada for an amazing stay, can't wait to come back.
This is by far the best hotel of Sao Paulo. The service of the staff is efficient and genuinely attentive. The room is full of small, but thoughtful details that make your stay comfortable. Amenities such as the pool and sauna, and the lobby bar have a unique contemporary and elegant design, with high quality of service.
