Stayed here for 3 days with a friend. The hotel it self was just fine. Breakfast was the standard fruit, mixed fruit, lots of bread options and cakes. Staff very little English but can't complain about that but helpful and friendly. I would say the area there is some restaurants near by we ate in an itialian close by which was good. There are some bars also but did not use them. The area we felt not great at all did not go out late as allot of homeless people with allot of police as one day would see the police stop people with knives. So I think people should know the area it is in. This is not a fault on the hotel but people do need to know the area. Close by tube station also.

things have improved since many of the 2016 reviews - the hotel is still an older one showing it's age in places with slow lifts and slightly dated decor but look past that the staff are helpful and friendly and multi lingual. there is now wifi throughout the hotel for guests as basic 4M speeds included in room rate the breakfast is simple but good and consistent, if you want to eat in the restaurant remember Brazilians eat early at 8pm it's reverting to room service menu (but you can still eat in the restaurant) the location is central near república and the metro system and is typically são paulo with mixture of night life, parks and poverty rubbing side by side with wealth i stayed for a week with my partner and they were most helpful and accepting of us (we are an Anglo- Brazilian gay couple) yes it's old an may need repainting in places but it still has a faded style about it and a helpful and friendly service. the only thing i could find wrong is contrary to some listings there is no pool here just a small gym on the 19th floor.

San Raphael was one of Sao Paulo's best hotels in the 50's and 60's, but those days are long gone. The rooms are spacious, but that's about it. The air conditioning was broken, there was a leak in the shower, elevators take forever and everything else looks tired. Desperately need a renovation (or a serious price reduction)

Arrived Friday in the early evening on the airport bus and after a bit of a walk we easily found the hotel. The walk was up the mainstreet with many people enjoying their evening. Although some of the area is a little bit dingy in no way did we feel threatened. On arrival at the hotel the check in was quick and the staff were very helpful in giving advice as to the area and getting around. The room although a bit dated was clean and the bed comfortable. Noise level from the street was not a problem. On leaving the next day manager gave advice as to how to get to bus station, which was greatfully accepted. Would recommend hotel to friends so long as they like to feel being in a city oloder area.

The rooms are clean, a good king size bed, air climatisation, but TV is tricky to turn on, and prone to interference during thunderstorms, and worse, only a few channels, nothing in English. Wifi is OK. Staff is very kind, and breakfast is excellent.And last but not least, not so expensive.

We stayed for a night and we found the room quite ok. Spacious and good for the 40€ we paid per night. Breakfast was on the weak end because the pastries were not very fresh. It was quite disappointing the lack of free Internet and the fact that they are under staff as only one receptionist has to deal with a 20 floors hotel. If you don't speak Portuguese then it's even a bit trickier, but they seem to understand Spanish. Rooftop views are nice, gym is included and the hotel is well situated next to Republica square where you can take the airport shuttle service to GRU.

I stayed one week there and I have to say that the level of service was quite weak. The receptionists hardly spoke English. I am not even a native speaker but in an international hotel the well qualified receptionists would be more than required. I had a constant problem with Internet and I needed to pay for it on top of the daily rate. It was funny that in front of the hotel there was a park with free wifi and it worked 100% accordingly so often i went out to use the free wifi rather than the expensive and bad hotel one. Furthermore the room was extremely noisy. My balcony looked to a roundabout and some working machines beeped there all the time and hotel windows let's say were not the best noise proof pieces. Cleaning ladies banged the doors in the morning and made sure that you woke up without any phone alarm. They were sneaky: charged everything, even a tiny T-shirt which I thought was a gift....but turned out it wasn't... Positive sides: the service attitude was good from the hotel workers (even they were not able to solve your issues). Food was nice. The room was very spacious with double bed for one person. Next time i choose an other hotel for sure. Sorry but far more not recommended hotel.

My wife and I spent two nights at the San Raphael in June, 2013. The hotel is within walking distance of Praca da Republica and other attractions in the center of the city. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. The wifi left something to be desired, but the breakfast was very adequate, the room was nice, and for the money, this was a good choice.

We had a great sized suite at this hotel which was tidy, freshly decorated and very comfortable. I was really surprised by this property and would recommend it to anyone. The bar/restaurant on the ground floor was great, with live music and although we never made it to the complimentary breakfast (too early!!), I heard another guest talking about how nice it was. Jump in a taxi and head for Vila Madelina - the best area for bars and drinks in SP. The area the hotel is located in is OK, but there seemed to be lots of 'night ladies' in the area at night, so be wary.
