8/10 Very Good

Boa opção em Nova Friburgo
O hotel fica em um prédio antigo, sem elevador e com móveis “clássicos” (para não dizer velhos). A TV tem imagem ruim. O café da manhã é básico, com opções de pães e bolos. A localização é boa, no centro de Nova Friburgo

O Hotel Sao Paulo e um tradicional hotel em Nova Friburgo. O predio e antigo, mas, bem conservado e limpo. Nao diria rustico, mas, antigo. Limpo, organizado e de facil acesso. Nos atendeu perfeitamente. Nao ha luxo, entao, nao esperem um hotel luxuoso. Contudo, o ambiente e agradavel e os funcionarios muito solicitos, educados e gentis. Eu recomendo muitissimo.

6/10 Good

Ponto positivo: localização e a cordialidade dos funcionários. Negativo: o banheiro era pequeno, instalações antigas e, principalmente, as vagas do hotel para estacionar o carro eram muito limitadas. Quando ficava lotado, erá necessário utilizar as vagas de um estacionamento ao lado e deixar as chaves do carro na recepção.
