São Paulo is a far cry from New York in terms of hotel openings: five stars are hard to come by... So it was quite exciting to welcome last year to the short list of luxury hotels the hotel Tivoli Mofarrej. The place isn't exactly new (ex-Sheraton, ex-Meliá): but the new owners gave it a complete revamp.
The lobby has soaring ceilings and plenty of glass...
My room was nice and boutiquey in style. Déja vu, but very comfortable.
It had a small reading area...
Here's the bedroom of one of their pricier corner suites:
If you go ask for a room facing Nove de Julho avenue: gorgeous views at night!
Room service food is surprisingly good...
Especially the burger:
Lovely chocolate treat given out at turn-down service:
The breakfast buffet...
The ugly orange pool:
Don't miss the rooftop restaurant, Arola Vintetres – it's been getting great reviews.
And before booking, make sure to compare the rates on their official website and the ones quoted on the site of the Leading Hotels of the World association.
Last time I checked, Leading offered a lower rate...
