Took a taxi from GRU and was only R$115. Not bad for a 40 minute cab ride. Upon arrival to the hotel, the staff was very friendly and all smiles.

Breakfast is also really good. Bathroom could use an upgrade but the water pressure and temperature... More

The hotel is conveniently located near to Praça da República. The room was clean, beds comfortable. The stuff is friendly and always trying to help but not very knowledgeable. Breakfast is good, a lot of fruits. I would stay there once again.
