Site Inspection at Qoya Hotel in São Paulo, Brazil
Curator’s statement

In November of 2023, I did a site inspection while staying at Qoya Hotel São Paulo. It's one of the few hotels in the city with a rooftop pool. The hotel's lobby entrance is one level up, away from the hustle and bustle of the street level. This makes it a safe and secure location to host group celebrations and corporate events alongside their piano bar. Meanwhile, on the street level of the hotel lives Dinho's, a Brazilian steakhouse. Dinho's has been featured in Michelin Guide 2019, Travelers' Choice 2020 and Veja Sao Paulo Comer and Beber 2021.

Qoya Hotel São Paulo is located at the end of Avenida Paulista, the cultural heart of the city. Hotel amenities include a rooftop outdoor pool, fitness center, smart TVs in every room and 3 meeting rooms that can be adjoined into 1 large space. The 24-hour onsite restaurant and piano bar features floor to ceiling windows as well as indoor and patio dining. The bartender serves up a smooth caipirinha. Below the hotel resides Dinho's, a Brazilian steakhouse recommended by Michelin Guide, Tripadvisor, and Veja Sao Paulo Comer & Beber.

Adjacent and across the street are the Itau Cultural Institute and Japan House which mark one end of Avenida Paulista, the major avenue of São Paulo lined with shopping centers, restaurants, and the Museum of Art. On Sundays, Avenida Paulista is closed to motorists and is enjoyed by runners and bicyclists. Walk the 2.8km (1.7mi) from one end to the other, where you can find street performers and merchants selling local art and crafts.

Need to Know

At 12 stories and 166 guest rooms, I recommend Qoya Hotel São Paulo to my clients who enjoy boutique stays without sacrificing amenities like a rooftop pool and fitness center. The intimate meeting rooms and common spaces are ideal for organizing corporate events and groups celebrating birthdays, retirement, and other milestones. Reach out and let me plan your perfect São Paulo vacation!
