One of the most charming hotels in São Paulo belongs to the Fasano family, a name that has been synonymous with refinement and hospitality in the city for over 100 years. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, it is also home of two of the brand’s most iconic properties: the Fasano restaurant, long considered the best Italian restaurant in South America, and Baretto, an intimate live music and jazz bar.

This ultra refined 60-room hotel located in the Jardins district, behind an English red-brick façade, evokes a bygone era of modernist glamour, with muted gray travertine marble set off with exquisite 1930s-era antiques in rooms and common areas; and a reserved formality and discreetness, rare in Brazil.
