Emiliano São Paulo

A hip, buzzy boutique hotel in São Paulo
On the outside, Emiliano São Paulo is a dramatic thin-mirrored tower crowned with an overhanging helipad. Inside, the São Paulo hotel is every inch the epitome of design-forward Brazilian style with a discreet, attentive staff.

You won’t find a pool or much in the way of outside space here, but you will find an excellent spa, a fitness center, a good restaurant and a business center. This boutique hotel in the fashionable Jardins district is understandably popular with the jetset, in-town-for-business crowd.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Blonde woods and design features such as Brazilian artist Siron Franco’s hanging sculpture (a giant, black cocoon) and the 16-foot vertical garden, soften the crisp-white marble floors of the glass-encased lobby.
  • Settle into one of the Champagne & Caviar Bar’s bespoke armchairs — each made with hundreds of feet of beige rope by São Paulo design prodigies, the Campana Brothers — and choose from a menu of more than 75 different bubblies.
  • The penthouse Cubo Suite is worth the splurge, set inside a sort-of glass cube and offering an indoor heated plunge pool, a dining table, two desks, a large five-seat sofa and a freestanding bath tub from which to enjoy the 180-degree view of the city.
  • Located just a few blocks from Avenida Paulista, one of the city’s main business hubs, Emiliano is on Rua Oscar Freire, home to many top restaurants and designer boutiques.
  • The Santapele Spa is an urban oasis complete with an outdoor relaxation area, two Japanese baths, a vertical garden wall and comfortable lounge chairs.
Things to Know
  • The tables are well spaced at Emiliano restaurant, so you won’t have to share your conversation with the one next to you.
  • Run Oscar Freire (the street on which the hotel is situated) is one of the very few places in São Paulo where you can indulge in high-end retail therapy without being inside a shopping mall.
  • Santo Grão, just opposite the hotel, is one of the best cafés in town for people-watching and a superior cup of coffee.
The Rooms
  • With 56 rooms in total, the hotel is small enough to feel exclusive while never feeling cramped. There are just two rooms per floor.
  • Neutral tones, a plethora of woods and beige leathers are matched with soft lighting, while Egyptian cotton sheets and goose-down pillows adorn king-size beds.
  • In the bathrooms, you’ll find the hotel’s signature range of natural spa products, a hydro-massage shower and a high-tech toilet. 
  • The suites are double the size of the deluxe rooms and boast small kitchens.
The Restaurants
  • High ceilings, mirrors and a stunning vertical garden set the stage at Emiliano, the luxury hotel’s Italian restaurant and a favorite for business lunches and smart family gatherings.
  • Diners have an option to order the five-course tasting menu or from the à la carte menu made up of freshly-made pastas, risottos, fish and meat.
  • Starters have flair, such as the thinly sliced octopus served in a puff of cherry-wood smoke.
  • The biggest draw, however, is the excellent weekend brunch. Take your time in choosing a succession of miniature dishes, from classic egg options to soups, pastas, meats and divine desserts.
