We ended up there because there were no room elsewhere... I think it was an apartment building turn into hotel... in the 70’s when it was last renovated. Not all rooms are the same but mine that the smallest and wrist designed bathroom. Blankets old. Towels were worn. Breakfast was simple. Services are minimal.

I stayed here for 4 nights during an event I attended at Graded School. The most I can say is that it is right down the street from the school, an easy walk. The suites themselves are spacious but badly in need of updating. There is a seating area and a kitchenette. There is a small outdated gym on the premises. There is also an extravagantly over-priced restaurant connected to the place. The place is fine, but the only to prefer this to competitors is the proximity to Graded.

This hotel has seen better days. Everything about it, from the furniture to the fittings, is tired and worn. For us, the location was ideal, but that was the only plus. The air-conditioners just barely kept the rooms cool, and the noise from the road (granted, at the end of Carnival) was so loud that we needed ear plugs to sleep through it -- otherwise, you might have thought you were sleeping on the road itself! The breakfast is unremarkable, and if you don't speak Portuguese, you may have difficulty communicating with the front desk staff. If you have a choice, a different hotel might be better.

On the plus side, the room was clean and spacious with a good air conditioner in the bedroom. The staff did their best to help us, but have limited English. Breakfast is OK, with both hot and cold food items, great orange juice, and meh coffee.
Major cons were a terrible bed that was so hard it gave me bruises on my hips, internet so weak it was unusable, and no safe for guests to use. Considering the hotel is located right next to the biggest favela in Sao Paulo, you'd think there would be a safe in the room. I'd rather have had that than the stove that was unusable because of the lack of pots.
This hotel is also quite far away from the nicer parts of Sao Paulo. Since taxis are expensive, that's a bummer. Basically, it was ok because our work was in the neighborhood, but I wouldn't choose it again.

Pros & Cons - It's OK
I was here for 2 weeks for work. My location to my work was excellent so that was a plus. The Hill is located on a hill (hence the name) so you are either walking up hill or downhill wherever you go. There is a small market around the corner where I could buy most anything I needed including water, snacks and sandwich foods. There is a small restaurant/bakery down the block and across the street - the Casablanca - which was fine for me. There is a large mall JardimSul about a 10 minute walk downhill and good15 min walk up hill on the return. The mall has a large grocery store and food court with Subway, McDonalds, Italian foods, Baked Potato, Asian selections and so on. There are clothing stores etc as well.
I neither saw nor was bothered by the favela that was nearby. I felt quite safe.
On the negative side, there is little English spoken at the hotel and that caused some issues for me.(My fault - not theirs.) The breakfast was not really worth it for me - they had several different cakes and breads, some fruit, corned flakes, cheese and ham and coffee. The milk was sour so I asked for milk from the kitchen on a daily basis. It is not refrigerated. I also bought cereal from the store and used it instead of the corn flakes or whatever it was they were serving. If I were paying for my own breakfast, I would have skipped it totally.
It was a bedroom, 2 bath, living area and kitchen. However, there were no cooking utensils at all. Since I did not speak Portuguese this was never made clear to me how I could have gotten these items - if they were extra or what. I did ask for a set of cutlery. It was nice to have a 'fridge. It, of course, was stocked with their own beverages which were costly, I bought my own at the market.
There was a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner and soap in the bathroom. There was an AC in the bedroom and it usually cooled the bedroom. My biggest complaint was that the sheet on the bed did not fit so it was like sleeping on a loose sheet on top of a mattress. The blanket and furnishings are quite tired and had a Motel 6 feel to it. I only saw one cockroach so I put my suitcases on the couches to keep them off the floors and did not put my clothes in the drawers. It is a tropical climate and the windows do not shut tightly so it was not unexpected.
There is a TV in the living room that does carry CNN and BBC and some sports channels in English.
There is Internet that works most of the time. It works best in the morning. It is not 100% reliable, but it is included in the rate. It can get frustrating when it decides not to work. (I wondered if because my room was on the end that perhaps it did not get the signal has well as other rooms.) Also, I thought it strange that was not a clock i the room. There is also a small room with some exercise equipment in the lobby. It is in a locked room.
So, on the negative, I would much prefer having a sheet covering the bed, a more reliable Internet, and dogs that don't bark down the hall.
I did like the location. It was good for me. I also liked the nearness of the market, the small restaurant, and the fact that the Internet was included.
As for other's comments - the furniture was not falling apart and the elevators worked fine. I would probably not have a problem staying here again.
