Stayed here in an excellent room...really spacious and clean. Staff were friendly but completely overwhelmed at checkout (go early to do this). I had to wait 30 mins in a queue despite three people serving. The hotel is in a good location, next door to a modern shopping mall. The only thing it needs really is a bar...I don't think there is one anywhere in the hotel?

I am in Sorocaba regularly on business from Europe . Unfortunately it seems that there is a lack of competition for business hotels in Sorocaba which is not beneficial for quality. Generally the hotels here do not meet the standard you would get for a equivalent price in central Europe.

What I liked:
+ Rooms are spacious and clean, equipped with flat screen TV and kitchenette, ironing board and iron, private safe
+TV offered movie channels like Telecine
+ Supermarkets and shopping mall just a 2 minute walk away
+ Restaurants in Campolim just 5-10 minute walk away
+ elevator is reasonably fast
+ Parking is free, I just dropped the key with the reception and they happily put my car in the closed garage


What I did not like:
- The hotel is very well booked, due to bookig situation I had the feeling that personnel did not feel it was necessary to care about me and go the "extra mile", they charged me for late checkout even though this had been arranged without any mention of a surcharge before
- Even after having paid half a dozen times they still did manage to get my companies address on the invoice without me asking and checking at least once
- Breakfast service is downright terrible at peak times around 7am as the restaurant is far to small for the high number of business travellers. As a result I got no seat, there were not enough plates or cups or other items so I had to wait.
- Noise: My room was out to the back facing the car park, I perceived the lower floors to be less loud than at the top. Even out to the back there is a considerable background noise of traffic.
- Location is on the other side of Sorocaba from the industrial district with big companies in the north so I had to leave latest at 7 in order to avoid the Sorocaba traffic.
- Wireless Network was slow in the evening
- Laundry service was rather expensive

My resume: Acceptable only due to limited choice in Sorocaba, not my first choice.

Room Tip: I pereceived first floor out to the back to IBIS hotel to be quiet, of course the view is better at...

The hotel is nice. Breakfast is a bit poor.
Location is good and attendants are just OK. Nothing special.

Reviewed 19 June 2009

Room spacious, clean and comfortable. The small kitchen with microwave and coffee maker can be useful in many situations, but the cafeteria that serves the coffee is very cozy. My tip is to get the higher floors because the street is quite noisy and the windows do not block the noise that start early ... My stay was a season of cold and I regret that heating the water was not very efficient. The location must be considered. The hotel is on the border of the city of Sorocaba and Votorantim, and next to the best shopping center in the region.
