Its facade is made from a blend of wood and red brick, which seem out of place in the architectural universe of São Paulo. It evokes 19th-century England, and this reference was intended by its owners, who have some of the most beautiful hotels in Brazil.
When you enter here, there are no effects of style or ostentatious design, but rather the sober codes of 1930s elegance. This spirit is expressed through brown leather club chairs and the silver tea service, while the furniture has typical Paulista accents, that is to say, modernist. This subtle mix of eras seeks to evoke an authentic and discreet form of luxury, but it does not veil that which is the essence of hospitality: the service. Here it is outstanding, matchless.
Once you have found your way about your room, set off to the bar. Try a vodka martini in a jazzy 1950s atmosphere, for the barman is a genius of mixology. For a completely different atmosphere to start your day, head to the top floor, where the gym features the best training equipment, inviting you to a very tonic workout with views over the city.
